Fans of mystery novels might consider Agatha as a name for their new girl kitty. Agatha Christie, the Queen of Crime, is the best-selling author of all time. If you have a girl with an air of mystery about her, Agatha would make an excellent choice. It would also be a good fit for a girl detective who enjoys hunting down intruders in the yard.

Clementines are a delicious miniature citrus fruit that is a hybrid of mandarin and sweet oranges. Clementine is also an adorable and lovely name for a girl kitty (or a girl human, for that matter). One of the most popular brand names for clementines are Cuties, so if you’ve got a little cutie that needs a name – especially a ginger girl – Clementine may be the one for you.

Eloise is a lovely choice for your little girl. The name Eloise was made famous by the Eloise book series, written by Kay Thompson, and made even more well known by the famous portrait of Eloise that hangs in the Plaza Hotel in New York City. The character of Eloise, while cute and clever, was very mischievous and always getting herself into trouble, so this would make a fitting name for a girl kitty who hasn’t quite learned the rules yet (or an older girl who prefers to make her own).

Pet Pro Tip: Regardless of which breed you bring home, make sure to get help protecting your new best fur friend with a best-in-class kitten insurance or cat insurance plan. Vet bills for unexpected accidents & illnesses can add up fast – it pays to be prepared with insurance.

Felicity means “intense happiness,” and what better name for the joyous new addition to your family? The name is probably best known as the title character in the TV show Felicity, which made actress Keri Russell a star.

This lovely Irish Gaelic name means “intoxicating.” Maeve was a warrior queen in Irish mythology, so this name would be a great fit for a tough little girl you just can’t get enough of.

This is a fun choice for cat parents who love anime. Jiji is Kiki’s pet black cat in the popular Studio Ghibli film Kiki’s Delivery Service. Jiji is very loyal to Kiki and is always there to help her, so this would make a great name for a kitty who is constantly by your side. It is also a good alternative to the more popular Gigi.

If your little girl fills your home with melodic meows, Melody could be a pretty choice. This name would be extra fitting for one of the more talkative breeds, such as a Siamese, Bengal, Maine Coon, Siberian, or Tonkinese. Fun fact: researchers are learning more and more about cat vocalizations and what different meows mean!

Minerva is the Roman goddess of wisdom and has long been associated with strategic warfare. If you have a clever girl that knows exactly how to get what she wants from you, Minerva would make a great choice. It is also a great choice for Harry Potter fans since Professor Minerva McGonagall was able to shape-shift into a cat, and her patronus was a cat, too.

If you are giving yourself the gift of kitty love around the holidays, Natasha is a pretty name for your new girl. Natasha is a Russian name meaning “born on Christmas Day.” It is also a fun choice for Marvel fans of Black Widow (aka Natasha Romanov) and would fit a Russian breed such as a Russian Blue or Siberian.

Most people know her as Catwoman, but her true identity is Selina Kyle. The name Selina would make a prrrfect choice for a girl kitty who is smart, agile, and a little bit sneaky – with a black coat that matches the color of Catwoman’s iconic costume.
