185 Nerdy Cat Names – Epic Tech, Video Game & Comic Names

nerdy-cat-names-2Being a nerd is cool these days. Never has it been easier to talk about your love of classic video games, your interest in rebuilding computers or how the lame ending of Battlestar Galactica still bothers you. (Don’t get me started on that one. It’s six years later and I’m still mad.)

People are more accepting of all sorts of interests, and with social media, you have an instant platform to bond with others about your nerdy passions.
