Names for Blue Pets

Pet Names Based on Color:

Which names suit pets with blue feathers or blue fur? After all, not just budgies are blue. There are also dogs and cats that have a blue sheen to their fur. Of course, you can also just choose a “blue” name because it’s your favorite color.

Your pet doesn’t have to be completely blue for you to give it a blue name. The feathers or fur on its wings, head or other body part only need a few touches of blue.

Blue Fur

Even dogs, cats and guinea pigs can have blue fur. Of course, they’re not azure blue, royal blue or sky blue. It’s mostly a mousy-gray or anthracite fur that has a blue shimmer in some lights. Chartreux and Russian blue cats always have blue fur, for example. Scottish folds and British short hairs can be lots of different colors, such as black, brown, silver, red or white.
