German Cat Names

The German people are always synonymous with restraint and efficacy, but who knew how lovely and descriptive their language is?

As a pet lover, by assigning German cat names to your felines, you can translate this affection into German.

We have prepared this comprehensive list of all the interesting and adorable names to help you hunt.

First, let’s start with the German cat names or terms that refer to the animal.

The English language has a good number of fun names for cats such as feline, kitty, or pussycat. The German language is almost the same.

Let’s take a good look at some German cat names that mean CAT:

  • Muschi means pussy

German Cat Names that mean Colors

Do you want a German name that suits the hue of your feline best friend? Or maybe the English term Pink just doesn’t sound as good, because you have a favorite color.

The English equivalents here are the German equivalents:

  • Blau means blue
  • Braun means brown
  • Gelb means yellow
  • Grau means gray
  • Grün means green
  • Kupfer means Copper
  • Lila means purple
  • Rosa means pink
  • Rot means red
  • Schwarz means black

Beige is still the same beige in German. The same goes for gold, orange, and bronze.

If colors are not your thing, maybe you can consider naming your cat after popular German food? That is one fun way to name a cat.

You can try any of these options:

You can also call your cat Kartoffelpuffer if the only thing he does is lie down. That is the German word for potato pancake. Or call it Kartoffel Klosse which means potato dumpling if your cat is a fatty.

Although it is almost unimaginable to yell out that mouthful if your kitties have done naughty things.
