Girl kitten names range from the cutest and cuddliest of monikers to the most ferocious feline finds. They may have especially catlike meanings or associations or simply pack a purrfect sound. Others have the built-in sass that cats are known for. Let’s get to know some meow-rific monikers together.

A solid start is with popular girl kitten names. They’re an interesting mix of styles, and with their popularity, they’re guaranteed to have great sounds that are easy to call and pair with kitty commands. The “moon” Luna is one of today’s hottest picks. With a soft sound and great meaning, it’s no surprise why, either. Lily shares her sweetness, along with her friends Bella and Lucy. We can’t miss Cleo, either, a mysterious meow moniker that pet parents adore. More popular picks include Callie, Willow, and Chloe.

Unique girl kitten names are also abundant if you prefer something less common. A great alternative to Luna is her rhyming friend Yuna. Meaning “kindness,” this Japanese gem is precious. Speaking of gems, why not try Bijoux? This French find means “jewel,” which aptly describes your precious cat. The same might be true of her friend Roux, meaning “red.” She’s a smart choice for a cat with rich, russet fur, such as a ginger tabby. See Amali, Nishi, and Jazz for more unique cat names.

Awesome girl kitten names also come from television and movies, like the Lion King cuties Nala, Sarabi, Kiara, and Sarafina. These beauties are ideal for a sleek cat that looks straight from the savanna. Penelope Pussycat was a favorite from Looney Tunes. This “weaver” is a wow of a name. She has loads of cute nicknames, too, like Poppy, Penny, and Nell. You can find another awesome choice in Marie, as in the cute kitty from the Aristocats.

Cat-themed kitten names for girls are another great idea. They include the perenially popular Kitty and her cute friends Kit and Kitters. These are perfect for the everyday housecat that’s pleased to curl up on your lap for a nap. There are also big cat choices like Tiger, Lynx, and Puma. These fit more adventurous kitties who are happy to strut around on a leash or explore new places. Getting clever is always an option, too, with witty monikers like Tigerlily. This floral find offers a delicate link to flowers along with a fierce feline start. You can also explore meanings for a cat connection, such as the “lion” legends Leona, Lenna, and Arielle.
