Orange Cat Names

Last updated: October 9th, 2017 If you’ve just adopted an orange cat, congratulations! This list of Orange Cat Names is designed to help you find the perfect names for your little ginger-colored feline. Choosing the perfect names can be difficult, so we’ve created this list of good names for orange cats to help you find the right one.

According to researchers at UC Berkeley, all orange cats are considered tabbies and about 80 percent of all orange tabbies are male, so the majority of these are male orange cat names. This list has unisex, as well as, orange male cat names and orange female cat names.
