Marvel Inspired Names For Your Cat

    When picking a name for your cat, it is important to pick a name that captures your personality as well as the cat’s personality, here comes Marvel cat names!

    I talk in detail about the different factors to consider when naming a cat in my ‘How To Name Your Cat’ post. But it can also be fun to name your pet after something that is important to you!

    If you are a fan of the Marvel Universe, then maybe there is a perfect name for your cat hidden in one of your favorite movies!

    Whether your new kitty seems like a sweet little hero or a mischievous villain, you can find a name to suit your new family member from the Marvel Comics.

    Any true marvel fan knows cats make some cameo appearances in movies, so why not be in their name too.

    This is not to say there could be people I missed.  If your friends have taken home recent furry additions to their families, maybe they’re looking for an awesome hero or villain cat name.

    And just because they are named a villain’s name doesn’t mean that they are a bad cat! It could just be a cool name!

    Give me a night curled up on the couch with my kitties watching Marvel movies, and I am one happy camper!
