Human Names:

Using human names is a great way to find cute kitten names. Here's the trick: choose a name you wouldn't expect to see on a cat. A very human name.

Names like Max, Charlie, Lucy and Chloe qualify as human names, and they certainly are cute, but we're talking about really unique kitten names.

Being a name that is usually only for people qualifies it for our page of cute kitten names.

There are so many ideas! Here are a few:
