101+ Fabulous Female Orange Cat Names

Spread the love

Looking for orange cat names for your female cat or kitten? Cute orange cat names that will suit your new little girl? Then here’s 101 fabulous female orange cat names to fill you with inspiration!

See, female orange cats are actually fairly rare. There are significantly more male orange cats than female orange cats around.

This is because the “ginger gene” which produces the orange color is on the X chromosome. Females have two X chromosomes and so need two copies of this gene to become ginger, whereas males need only one. Interesting huh?

Orange cats are also known for being friendly, loving and full of character – so it’s no surprise that you’re looking for the perfect female orange cat name for your new furry friend. (They deserve something that’s as fabulous as they are!) 

The thing is, deciding what to name a cat / kitten, can be pretty tricky. How do you find something that’s original and fitting? Well, that’s where we come in…
