Cat Name Disney Movie
What about a cat name inspired by a Disney movie? Disney has many movies to choose from. Let’s take a look!
This Disney animated movie features a puppet who longs to become a real boy! The puppet’s name is Pinocchio. He lives with a cobbler named Geppetto (who always longed for a son), who created Pinocchio from wood. Additional character name ideas include:
- Monstro: a whale in the tale who swallows some of the characters during the movie. He’s not a very nice whale in the story.
- Jiminy Cricket: the magical cricket who helps Pinocchio throughout the movie. He works to keep Pinocchio out of trouble, but is not always successful. In fact, he acts as Pinocchio’s conscience—wouldn’t you like a cute little conscience like Jiminy?
- Blue Fairy: another major characters and one of the only female characters in the story. She grants Pinocchio the gift of life and allows him to choose whether or not he’ll become a real boy.
- Figaro: is a Tuxedo Cat owned by Gepetto. In the movie, Figaro makes Pinocchio (who’s still a puppet at that point) dance, but he eventually becomes frustrated and kicks the puppet from behind. However, when Pinocchio becomes a real boy, Figaro is happy to accept him as a friend.
This movies revolves around a young circus elephant who was born with gigantic ears. He’s given the cruel nickname of “Dumbo” because of his overly large ears.

- Dumbo: the cute little elephant with big ears. Later in the movie, Dumbo learns how to use his extremely large ears to fly!
- Jumbo: is Dumbo’s mother and is locked up when she’s enraged by all the teasing Dumbo receives for his ears. She’s later released when Dumbo becomes famous for flying with his ears. She and Dumbo are given a private car and better treatment after Dumbo’s turnaround.
- Casey Junior: is a small locomotive in the movie that works to haul the circus from place to place.
- Claude and Lolly: are adorable twin bears who are rather chaotic friends of Dumbo.

The Three Caballeros
This animated musical that premiered in Mexico City. The animated film follows three friends on their adventures through Latin America. The main characters for this film include:

- José Carioca: is a Brazilian parrot from Rio de Janeiro, and is one of Donald Duck’s friends. He’s considered to be a rather suave, cool character and lady’s man. This might be a great name for a cat who thinks he’s quite the lady’s man!

This might make a great name for a multi-colored kitty!

How to Choose a Name for Your Cat
Cats can be finicky critters and some are even persnickety about their names. So, how can you find the right name for your cat, one that he/she will acknowledge and respond to? Here are some tips to keep in mind when choosing your kitty’s Disney name:
1). Color: perhaps your cat or kitten has a distinctive, pretty color. This may be the inspiration for her name! Look for Disney characters that have similar colorings—this might be the perfect name for your cat.
2). Personality: another idea is to choose a Disney character with a personality that matches your cat. Is your cat like Lucifer and enjoys getting others into trouble? Or maybe she’s more like Duchess, elegant and caring.
3). Gender: you can also choose a Disney character name that matches your kitty’s gender. For example, if you have a boy cat, names like Thomas O’Malley, Aladdin or Jiminy Cricket might make great choices. For girl cats, you could choose names such as Ariel, Cinderella or even Snow White.
Take your time to choose just the right name for your cat. It may help to get to know your new cat or kitten by observing their behavior, how she plays, etc. Be sure to keep your cat’s name short, as complicated names are difficult for cats to recognize. Once you’ve chosen a name, then it’s time to see if your cat likes her new name. If she responds, that’s great! If not, then you’ll have to work on finding another name she prefers. When you’ve both agreed on the new name, then be sure to repeat your cat’s name often. Use her name when you feed and play with her, during snuggle time, etc. She’ll soon become familiar with her name and may even come when you call!
