Unique White Cat Names

If “snowball” or “blizzard” doesn’t quite cut it, try translating “white” (or white things) into a different language.

Choosing the Purrfect Name for Your Snowy Feline

Don’t forget to consider your white cat’s personality when making your decision; if they’re shy, go for a delicate name like snowflake. If they’re bold and courageous, a strong-sounding name like tempest would be more apt.

At times, your options can feel limitless, and trying to decide on just one name can feel as difficult as navigating through a snowstorm. However, try not to overthink it too much – it’s best to go with your gut and pick a name you love and enjoy saying aloud.

If none of the names we cover on our list call out to you, why not give your cat a name inspired by your personal interests? For example, if your favorite pastimes include nerdy activities like binge-reading comic books, or watching The Lord of the Rings trilogy, you could give your furbaby a nerdy name.
