When thinking up Ragdoll cat names or ideas for male or female Ragdoll’s it can sometimes be tricky to decide and pick just one.
Luckily we’ve put together a list of suggestions which include some of the best names for cats you can use that sound great and include the origin of the name and its meaning.
The Ragdoll cat name Archie is perfect if you consider your cat as fresh and possible feline royalty. Prince Harry & Megan Markle recently named their first royal child Archie. It is also a well-known name in the United States because of Archie Comics and Archie Bunker, a well-loved character in “All in the Family” TV series.
People flock from the world over to see the Aurora Borealis, so why would you not want to name Ragdoll aurora to entice friends and family to love and adore your new cat or kitten. It will be the namesake of a famous Norwegian singer “Aurora” and hopefully sing you adorable meowing songs to match!
Daenerys, a well-known character from the Game Of Thrones television series, could be a great female Ragdoll Cat name idea. If you own other pets such as dogs, she will no doubt try to rule them and be a highly independent leader.
If you choose Theodora as your female Ragdoll’s name, it’s namesake would be a powerful Roman Empress. If your cat has lots of attitude, wisdom, and creativity, this name could be a good fit for you.
The name Luna is Latin and commonly associated with the goddess of the Moon in Greek mythology. If your Ragdoll Cat often loves going outside or looking through the window in the hours of the full moon, this cat name could be an excellent choice for you. It was also made famous by the character Luna Lovegood in the Harry Potter books.
Also found within Greek mythology, the name Pandora commonly associated with Pandora’s box, one of life’s big mysteries. If your Maine Coon is both beautiful and lives a feline life of magic, this could be a fitting pet name.
Zelda is commonly a nickname for the feminine name of Griselda. Its Yiddish meaning is both “Blessed” and “Happy”. If your cat always seems happy running around and playing, this name might be a good fit. It also translates in some cultures into “Warrior Woman”.
If your Ragdoll cat loves to fit into tight spaces and is an escape artist, then it is well deserving of being Harry Houdini’s namesake. This is especially true if your cat loves climbing into cardboard boxes!
9. Chewbacca (Chewy)
If you often find your Ragdoll trilling and chirping to its heart’s content. This might sound a lot like the noises Chewbacca makes in the Star Wars films. This name is also a good fit for any Ragdolls that have a lot of fur around their heads and collar.
A Ragdoll with the name Maverick is seriously independent-minded and doesn’t mind flying solo. Of course, they will always need to take a pit stop on your lap or when feeding time comes around. You can’t help but still adore cats with these characteristics.
Ragdolls are well known for their playful habits, but if your cat is extremely playful and loves clowning around, then perhaps the name Coco made famous by Coco the Clown would be a good fit?
Smokey is a great name for a grey Ragdoll Cat. While not the most original name, it is still one we like the sound of and can imagine it’s very satisfying to call your cat using it.
The cat name Jinks already makes it sound like the feline is up to mischief or hijinks. Its a right name for a Ragdoll who always seems merry and was used in the television series “Pixie and Dixie and Mr Jinks”.
As Dr Evils supervillain cat in the Austin Powers films, Mr Bigglesworth was a cunning and able to make others do his devious deads for him. If you also own a male Ragdoll cat capable of controlling when you do things, then this cat name is a stable fit.
While not a cat, Toto was the trusted dog companion of Dorothy in the Wizard Of Oz. We like to think if the name was used for a male or female Ragdoll cat that they to would be a wise and kind friend that helps guides you to happiness in life.
Perfect for any Ragdoll that resembles the lion cub found within the Lion King, the female cat name Nala would roll off the tongue and be a high identity to have. They will likely grow to have excellent, friendly characteristics and be a good companion for other cats or pets.
An excellent name for a Ragdoll living in an area with cold or snowy weather. Mittens is a cute name that is perfect for any cat that enjoys staying warm often looking out the window at the snow falling, but often times jumping and playing in the snowflakes.
Milo is a name that already sounds very cute for a male Ragdoll Cat. Its namesake is a young cat in the kid’s film “The Adventures of Milo and Otis”. He enjoys hiding and adventuring with his friend Otis the dog. So if your cat loves hiding around the house and gets along with other pets or the neighbour’s dog, then this could be a fitting cat name..
Does your Ragdoll look like a little tiger, that is both a loyal and friendly companion that is trying to keep you safe? If so it’s possible your cat could suit the name Rajah which is the well-known name of the caring tiger in “Alladin”.
Crookshanks is the name of a highly intelligent and perceptive cat in the Harry Potter books; he is excellent at recognising people for who they indeed are. While friendly and loyal, he would make a good cat name idea for a male Ragdoll that is both very clever and looks wise. Any owner naming their cat after him will be sure to bring some extra magic into their home.
Do you treat your female Ragdoll like a queen or princess? Then the name Dutchess would be very fitting. I’m sure she would agree! It would be an excellent name for a Ragdoll that is all white that only ever enjoys sleeping or eating in the best places in your home.
While it does sound funny, the name Colonel Meow suits many cats we know! If your male Ragdoll has a stern expression or loves to be in charge of any given situation, this cat name could be the right choice. The original Colonel Meow was a funny male Himalayan–Persian cat that grew to fame in viral videos on Facebook and Youtube.
Just like the cat name Colonel Meow, the name Lil Bub also grew to fame and stardom in viral videos floating around the internet. Known for his funny expressions and adorable personality, this is an excellent name for a Ragdoll cat that is continually sticking their tongue out or looking at you adoringly.
Figaro was probably best known for being the pet cat of Mister Geppetto and Pinocchio. Its a great name for a Ragdoll that is sometimes up to mischief, but has a heart of gold. In the kid’s film, he also dislikes taking baths or waiting for things to happen, so if you know a Ragdoll like this, the name would be an excellent fit for them.
If your Ragdoll loves to hunt, shows great pride in themselves and never gives up, then the name Sylvester that is shared by the cartoon character is a good fit. Any Ragdolls that love to burn off energy and run around all day long will share many of his characteristics and personality.
