How to Name a White Cat or Dog

Unique Pet Names for White Kittens or Puppies

White cats or dogs have a purity about them which calls for a special name. They remind their owners of clouds or snow or clean sheets or white sand beaches and can be named after these things. They can be the color of a full moon or a bag of cotton or a fresh sheaf of paper and similarly named. White cats can be strays or pure breeds, Persians or Siamese. White dogs can be purebred show dogs or the mixed runt of a litter. What they won’t be is homeless, nameless, or unloved, once given a name by a human who cares about them. (If you’re new to cat ownership, we highly recommend this great article.)

Names for Bold Proud White Boy Cats and Dogs

Many male kittens and puppies grow up to be proud mammals. Their names might reflect this. Stay positive and avoid names like Muffin, Brute, Snow Flake, or Barky.

  • Ice
  • Snowman
  • White Sox
  • Jack Frost
  • Santa Claus
  • Alpine
  • Mount Everest
  • Not Cocoa
  • Ski Slope
  • Skeet Shoot
  • Milk Shake
  • White Tiger
  • Klondike
  • Alaska
  • Sky
  • Pegasus
  • Snow Shoe
  • White knight
  • Reykjavik (capital of Iceland)
  • Snow Leopard
  • Quinn (the Eskimo)

Sometimes the second name is important, as in Feta Cheese, though the animal might be called Feta in the day to day but when speaking formally of its accomplishments, it is proper to say, for example, “Feta Cheese leapt up on the counter destroying my homework.” In other cases, the second name is part of the first name. Snow White is always said in its entirety.

An animal will learn its name regardless of the language of the name so it is a good idea not to change it at whim. Find a name both parties can stomach and it will soon be music to everyone’s ears.
