One of the most difficult tasks to do when a new animal member comes into ones life is choosing a name for it. Choosing the right name for a pet is important! Not only will it be what we call our pet for the rest of their lives, but it will also be the name with which they recognize being called. Black cat breeds are especially mysterious and beautiful and therefore need a suitable name.

Choosing a name for your cat can sometimes be tricky. It needs to be a name that we like but, at the same time, it should hold relevance to your cat's character. When choosing a name for your black cat, some things should be taken into consideration:

  • The name should be short and easy to learn, formed by maximum 2 syllables.
  • The name should not be similar to another word that you use commonly, e.g. "coffee". Calling a pet by a common word in your vocabulary can confuse the animal, especially when training your cat to learn its name.
  • Repeat your black cat's new name to them regularly over a span of 5-10 days. Cat's need about two weeks before they begin to correctly recognize their names.
