I’m proud to announce right here that I’m a huge Harry Potter fan. I have to say, that one of the best things about the Harry Potter series is the wide range of colorful characters and magical names.
With a huge demand for interesting and unique name ideas for cats, I figured why not put together a huge list of Harry Potter cat names!
With 7 books in the original series and another handful of additional books (source) taking you deeper into the world of Harry Potter, there are more than enough characters and names to choose from.
I’m sure you’re going to find the perfect name that suits your kitty. While also reminding you of the series and gives you a cool talking point when someone asks how you landed on the name. (Just be sure to mention me 🙂 )

What better cat name to pull from Harry Potter than one of the actual cat’s names from the series?
