Have you just adopted a cat or are you ready to do it ? Congratulations ! You will soon have to find a name for this new member of the family. As you may know, 2020 is the year of the « R ».
If you have chosen a purebred cat, and want to have it registered in France, you will have to choose a name starting with this letter for your pet. You can do this by bypassing the rule with an R followed by an apostrophe, for example: "R'Noupette". But if you have decided to comply (even in case your cat can not claim a pedigree) here is a list of suggestions to help you find the perfect name for kitty.
A yummy name
Kitty may be as high as three apples, but he has an ogre’s appetite. Or else it may be his master who is a fine gourmet, passionate about good food. In both cases, you need a name referring to food for your cat ! For example Ravioli or Ricota. There is also Roquette, Raclette or Rillettes ... to twist your diet without feeling guilty. And let's not forget fruits and vegetables, with Ratatouille or Raisin.
A name made for traveling
Are you a globetrotter, passionate about new horizons? Choose a place, more or less exotic, to name kitty. Who knows, it may also give him a taste for travel
? Several Mediterranean destinations make very pretty feline names, such as Rio, Russia or Rigolo
(a small town in Italy). If you are a fan of the USA, you can also opt for Roswell, Roklin or Rochester
. And to honor Asia, why not Rangoon
A historical name
Do you have high ambitions for your cat? Choose for him the name of a great historical figure. There are plenty of them: Ramses, Rodney, Roumen, Regalia, Radegonde or Richilde. Another possibility, intellectuals or artists: Ramsey, Ramus, Raven or Romeo.
A natural name
Are you passionate about plants and gardening, or an ecological cat master? Then choose a feline name inspired by botany. For this year in "R", we find plants and pretty flowers such as Rose, Reine or Rapunzel. There is also the reinette fruit. And why not choose the name of one of these flowers that are Raoulia or Reglisse?
An original name
Didn't find what you were looking for in the previous categories? There are still plenty of other original cat name possibilities starting with the letter "R". For example Ruby, for a kitten with a bright future; ). We also have a soft spot for Roudoudou, very "light", and Rigel, who takes us to the stars. And there are many more: Roxy, Rosie, Roy, Rainbow, Ruben, Ronron, Rouny ... In short, you are spoiled for choice, ... and one certainty: your cat will not will never want it for the name you gave it!
