Cat Names With A

Cat Names From A to Z:

Beautiful names for cats that start with the letter A!

Arielle sounds magical and would certainly "suit" a sweet, elegant cat well. A slightly wilder cat that likes to roam outdoors could be called Athena because she is the goddess of battle. Abby, Annie and Aisha are definitely nice and simple and sound good.

Of course there are also great male names with A, for example Apollo - for a posh, gray tomcat? Or Aladdin for a slightly crazy, adventurous tomcat. If you would like to stay a little more neutral, you can choose Alex. It could mean both Alexander or Alexandra.

Cartoon Cats Beginning With A

• Arlene – Garfield’s girlfriend


Arlene is a cat with pink fur and a noticeable tooth gap. She is very romantic and head over heels in love with Garfield. Garfield is in love with her as well, but maybe not as much as he loves lasagna. Sadly, it never quite works out between Arlene and Garfield. But Arlene has such a big heart that she can’t stay mad at Garfield. The name Arlene would be a great fit for an especially loving, gentle cat with light, shimmering fur. What do you think?
