Your Siamese kitty bounces all around your house, talking loudly. He’s his own cat, an individual. He needs a name that highlights not only who he is, but his Siamese heritage. From color names to historical names, you have a wide selection from which to seek inspiration.
Your Siamese cat has intense, deep-blue eyes. His luxurious fur coat varies in color from cream to a dark chocolate brown. Choose a name that points out his beautiful colors. You might choose Bailey, Kahlua or Caramel for a seal point Siamese.
If your kitty is a chocolate point Siamese, your name choice could describe chocolates and related flavors, such as Cinnamon, Hershey or Cocoa.
Should your cat have either blue or lilac color points on his fur, go for Sapphire or Blueberry.
Point out his eye color, and name your cat Blue or Blue Eyes.
If you’re a film buff, names of cats from movies might be more your thing. Consider calling your kitty DC -- that comes from “Darn Cat.” The children’s movie, “The Incredible Journey,” yields Tao.
If movies don’t grab you, books might. The “SkippyJon Jones” books may inspire you to name your kitty Skippy.
Names by Gender
Consider a name that reflects your kitty's gender. For the girls, think of Nan, Mariquita or Princess. The name you eventually choose should be simple enough for your cat to recognize when you call her.
For a male Siamese, Corwin, Erasmus, Brendan, Mahoney or Bardan may have that ring you’re looking for. Just make sure it's something you'll easily remember.
Or you could choose a gender-neutral name. Think of Snow, Aiden or Spring. Each of these is easy enough that he’ll probably come when you call him.
Let’s face it -- your kitty has a royal lineage. Just don’t let him know that. Instead, sneak that on him with a name of a royal personage or a Greek god, such as Hermes or Apollo. Or you could just hang a title on him to let everyone know he rules the house. If this is your choice, name him President, Mayor or Chief. These names are all easy for him to remember.
Thai Cat Names
Your Siamese kitty’s ancestors were from Thailand, which used to be called Siam. Honor those origins, and give him a Thai name. For a male, shorten King Chulalongkom to Chula. A female Siamese kitty could carry the name, Sirikit. She used to be the Thai queen.
