Orange Cat Names

Everyone notices a bright and sunny orange cat! These cats can range in hue from a deep, bright orange to burnt orange or even a light orange that is closer to a light brown color. Many who have chosen orange cats have first noticed their stunning coat color but then have admired their friendly and sunny personalities. There’s something about these wonderful orange cats. If you have a new orange cat or kitten, here are some purrfect cat names for you!


  • Pumpkin – This orange cat name is especially ideal for that cat with a plush and round tummy. But also choose this name for any cat you consider quite cuddly.
  • Bellini – If you’ve ever tried a Bellini, then you know just how yummy this sweet peach flavored wine cocktail is!  Try this purrfect cat name for your sweet but oh-so-sophisticated kitty.
  • Hazard – We’ve all seen those bright orange “hazard” cones or other things used at construction sites. If your kitty knocks things over, creates their own “masterpieces” all the time and is always up to something then choose Hazard as their name.
  • Flare – Anyone knows that a Flare burns bright day or night and that everyone can see it. Some cats are like this too! If your cat is the type to easily wind up as the center of attention at any time, this could be the purrfect orange kitty name for them.

  • Sunset – This orange cat name would be especially purrfect for those deep orange cats we’ve seen, to compliment their beautiful coat color. But it would also be a great choice if your cat seems to come to life as the sun goes down.
  • Tangerine – Many love the Tangerine because it is a smaller fruit full of flavor. Try this cat name for a petite cat with loads of purrsonality.
  • Pepper – Now some cats just seem to have that extra “zing” to them, whether it is the ones who love to climb the curtains for fun or the ones who like to drink out of your water glass instead of their water dish. Try Pepper as their purrfect cat name, it will very likely fit.
  • Zinnia – These bright and colorful flowers are popular with many gardeners. They also are popular with cats, who like to sleep right next to them! If your orange cat is bright and colorful – and their purrsonality is even more bright and colorful then this could be their purrfect cat name!
