Video Game Inspired Cat Name Considerations

There's a lot to consider when picking the "pawfect" name for your new feline. When choosing a name from this list, try to match the character to your cat's appearance and personality. For example, you might want to name a female cat with black fur that loves to climb after Faith from Mirror's Edge. Or, if your cat has tan fur with a big bushy tail, you might want to name them after Tales from Sonic the Hedgehog. That being said, most of the names on this list are suitable for all kittens, so feel free to pick a character from your favorite game regardless of your feline's appearance and personality!
