450+ Unusual Calico Cat Names!

Unusual Calico Cat Names

I’m a huge fan of Calico cats. I love how they look with their white coats and orange and black patches. Such unique cats deserve a unique name, so I’ve put together this huge list of unusual Calico cat names to try and give you some inspiration.

You might not know this, but 99% of Calico cats are female due to a rare genetic condition. So, obviously most of these names are best-suited to female cats. There are a few unisex ones too, and just a few male names if you have one of the super-rare male Calicos.

There are some other coat types and styles that are similar to Calicos. So, please feel at home if you have a Caliby, Tortie, Tabby, Tortoiseshell, Torbie, or any of the other Calico mixes.

Egyptian Calico Cat Names
