A Guide to Unique Names for Your Mysterious Feline Friend, Collected from the Mythologies of Various World Cultures

The cat-names suggested here have all been gathered from mythological traditions of several diverse world cultures throughout history. For the most part, the various beings, creatures, and gods included have been chosen for attributes and traits which anyone might very well recognize in their own cat.

So why consider naming your cat after gods from ancient mythologies in the first place? Well, for one, the cat is a creature of pride, worthy of a name befitting its lofty nature. Secondly, cats are a mysterious lot, recognized as unusually spiritual beings by priests, philosophers, and mystics for thousands of years. As such, it seems reasonable to name a cat in homage to an ancient god or goddess as a way of drawing connections between the unique qualities of cats and their divine source of origin. Whether or not you believe in this sort of thing, there's no denying that cats have enjoyed a long history of mystic reputation that has fascinated their human companions for thousands of years...

It is my hope that this book might help you in finding a suitable name for your feline companion. At the very least, it can give you a wealth of ideas from which you may formulate your own special name for your cat-one that is august, dynamic, and filled with magic resonance, which is, after all, your cat's birthright.
