Names containing one or two syllables are easier for your cat to learn so giving sweet and meaningful three letter cat names to your cats might just be perfect.

“Keep it short and sweet” is one of the golden rules for naming a cat and three letter cat names are really doing the job. As stated above it is obvious why naming cats with shorter names is better but I don’t know what really draws people to shorter words. If we want to provide a lot of information with minimal words, why did we abandon hieroglyphs? They don’t even include any words, they are just pictures! 😹 But this is not the time to dive into behavioral analysis of human beings, now we need to find the best three letter cat name for your new feline friend.

I divided this list of three letter cat names into three categories, as usual:

  • Three Letter Cat Names For Male Cats
  • Three Letter Cat Names For Female Cats
  • Gender-Neutral Three Letter Cat Names

Since there are a lot of names in the list, I strongly recommend you to note the names you like as you read the list and check your list in the end to find the best name that suits your kitty. If more than one person will decide what the name will be, keep your separate lists and compare your notes after all parties finish reading the list. This way, you can see if there is any common name that everybody likes and you can avoid conflicts.

Also, try to find a name that suits or completely contradicts your cat’s physical traits or personality. Studies show that the meanings of words we use when calling someone or something can strongly influence our tone and we don’t even realize it. So giving a sweet cat name may influence your relation with your cat in a positive way.

Now without further delay, let’s find a great name for your kitty.

Gender-Neutral Three Letter Cat Names

Three Letter Cat Names Male
250+ Amazing and Meaningful Three Letter Cat Names 12

Gender-neutral names are actually my favorite type of names because they actually need to be words with meanings rather than actual human names. When you call a cat “Ego” everybody knows what to expect, right? Or if you have an aggressive cat, “Hot” can be an amazing choice. For me that’s the way cat names should be like 😸
