Hipster Cat Names
by Jessi Klein
Hipsters are always on the cusp of what is trendy and cool. And what hipster doesn’t want to extend that to their pet through hipster cat names?
The definition of a hipster is, “A person who follows the latest trends and fashions, especially those regarded as being outside the cultural mainstream.”
In today’s world, that often evokes imagery of oversized statement glasses, man buns and thick beards, beanie caps, checkered shirts, scarves and skinny jeans. And going to concerts, trying out new craft breweries, drinking fancy coffees and spending lots of time on your phone and laptop.

How to Pick the Right Name
We’ve been helping millions of new pet parents pick the perfect name for their new cat for years now. Along the way, we’ve discovered a few helpful pieces of advice:
- Pick a name that will fit your cat for the rest of his or her life. What fits a small cuddly kitten today might not work when the cat is all grown up.
- Wondering if you have the right cat name? Try it out! Say it out loud, in several different tones. You’ll know right away if it sounds right.
- If a name is hard to pronounce, others will likely have a hard time saying your cat’s name, too. Do you want to have to help them every time?
- Many cat experts recommend a shorter name that comes to your lips easily. At times it’s important to get your cat’s attention very quickly!
- And finally, does it fit your cat’s personality and appearance? What may seem like a great name in theory might not work for your specific cat.
