Siamese cats are distinguished by an unusual aristocratic appearance and a complex, independent character. Of course, these beautiful animals are worthy of the original sonorous name corresponding to their exotic beauty. What should you focus on when choosing a name for a Siamese cat?
If you are a happy owner of a purebred Siamese cat with a pedigree, then at least the first letter of your pet's name you can easily decide - it will prompt you in the cattery. In accordance with the club rules, the names of all kittens from the same litter must begin with one, strictly defined letter. It also happens that the cat has already received its full official name in the cattery and you will not be able to change it. In this case, it remains for you to decide whether you will use it for daily communication, or would prefer to come up with your own, "home" version. It should be borne in mind that the best cats perceive nicknames, consisting of 1-2 syllables.
When choosing a name for a Siamese cat, it is worth considering that these beautiful and proud animals come from Thailand, the former Siam. Therefore, it is good if the flavor of the east is present in their name. Thai names are ideal for this purpose. Agree that if a Siamese cat carries a name common in its "historical homeland" - it will look quite logical and reasonable. When studying and choosing names that are popular in Thailand, do not forget that the stress in them always falls on the last syllable.
You should know that in ancient Siam, cats of this breed were considered sacred animals. Keeping Siamese cats was allowed only to members of the royal family or monks. Based on this, it is considered perfectly acceptable to endow these animals with the names of the ancient goddesses. For example, Isis, Rhea or Astarte. True, before finally settling on such a name, it is recommended to find out better about the character and habits of your favorite's ancient namesake.
Pay attention to the peculiarities of the color of Siamese cats. By far one of the most attractive features of this breed is the amazing deep blue eye color of the Siamese. Choose a name that emphasizes this feature - Laguna, Maya, Phlox, Indigo - perfect for Siamese cats.
