Beautiful cat names starting with the letter B!

Bella and Blanca both sound super pretty. Also, they're very easy to pronounce. Bella is of course great for all elegant, pretty cats or for those who have a beautiful, loving heart :) Blanca means white and is therefore perfect for all cats with white fur.

Bagheera and Balou are very popular names for black male cats - because they are the names of the black panther and the bear from The Jungle Book.

About Famous Cats and Their Names

Mythological Cats Beginning With B

• Bastet – the Egyptian cat goddess

You may have already noticed: cats are divine! But when it comes to Bastet, it’s not about her funny actions but her mythological origins. Bastet was the daughter of the Ancient Egyptian sun god Ra and was depicted as a cat or a woman with the head of a cat. She was the goddess of love and fertility, dance, music and celebration. If your cat is very playful and happy, “dances” around or moves as gracefully as a goddess, Bastest could be a great name. It would also be a good fit for a Chartreux, British Shorthair or Sphynx.

Record Breakers Beginning With B

• Blackie – the richest cat in the world


Blackie wasn’t a stockbroker, Hollywood actor or star footballer, just a simple cat. You could say that his owner was something like a Lotto win. When British Ben Rea died in 1988, he had a fortune of over 10 million euro. He left it to his cat and charitable organizations that looked after cats. Blackie was lovingly looked after until the end of his days. But what’s the good of all that money? Blackie would have done without the money to have his owner with him for longer. Because that’s literally and figuratively “priceless”.

Video Game Cats Beginning With B

• Blanka – loves to play tricks

April fools! Blanka is a cat in Animal Crossing that plays tricks on you on April 1st. She turns into a villager so that you have to talk to people to find out who you’re talking to. You can draw her a face in the video game, because she doesn’t have one!

Cartoon Cats Beginning With B

• Bagheera - from The Jungle Book

Okay, not a house cat but still a cat: Bagheera the panther from The Jungle Book. If you feel like your cat looks out for you instead of vice versa, think about this name. This name would also be a good fit for confident black cats with thin, muscular builds.

Famous Cats Beginning With B

• Bart – or “the zombie cat”

Bart couldn’t be beat. He survived a traffic accident but was buried because nobody knew that he was still alive. But Bart wasn’t that easy to beat. Not this time! He used his claws to dig his way upwards to freedom. Respect!

• Bob – saved a man without hope

Unemployed James Bowen spent a long time as a busker in London. And he wasn’t doing great. He was suffering physically and mentally until he met Bob. He found the ginger tomcat right outside his door. He was lying there wretched and weak with a horrible wound on his leg. Because the cat wasn’t wearing a collar and seemed to be a stray, James took him to a vet. Bob stayed with him and followed him everywhere. James was so moved by their friendship that he wrote a book about the cat. It became so successful that it has now been translated into 26 languages and been made into a movie. Pets really can save lives!

• Buurtpoes Bledder – the shopping cat

Buurtpoes Bledder loved to tear through the center of Nieuwe Rin (the Netherlands). He visited lots of different cafés and a record shop. On his “tours”, he was given different nicknames by the shop owners, like “Danger Cat” or “Chardonnay”. Finally, he was called Buurtpoes Bledder. Buurtpoes is Dutch and means “neighbor cat”. Bledder means “ball”. This chaotic furball was so popular that he even had his own fan page on the internet.
