White Cat Names From Flowers

Naming a white cat requires some contemplation and understanding of your new cat friend. Take the time to make your new cat’s name one that will bring out the best of your little puss-puss!

When we first adopted our white cats, we didn’t have too much trouble finding a name for them. I think with any cat or dog the name you give tends to come from some mysterious subconscious place that often is unknown. When our sable Burmese cat Jasper passed away suddenly and we decided we were adopting a cat from the SPCA, it was in October and Halloween was approaching so when we picked not one but two white cats the name that jumped out for the male was Casper. Casper became the friendly ghost of Jasper and it seemed so fitting!

With the female white cat, Casper’s little sister, we didn’t have a name right away but being fond of flowers and gardening we chose Lily as the white Lily is such a beautiful flower and our little white cat was also so beautiful that the name Lily just seemed to fit perfectly!

If you like flowers, then there are some great white flowers that can inspire you for a cat name. Understanding the meaning and symbolism behind flowers can inspire unique names so you don’t just call your cat Whitey or Ghost or Milkshake, although those are pretty good names for a cat!

Anyway, here are some white flowers that might help choose a good name for a white cat.
