What are the Siamese cats’ names in Aristocats?

For many movie buffs, their earliest introduction to the Siamese breed comes from the movie, The Aristocats. The film depicts a mother cat named Duchess, as well as her three kittens, Berlioz, Marie, and Toulouse. The cats have French names because the movie is set in France, but Shun Gon, a Siamese cat, also makes an appearance.

Other cat names from the movie include Scat Cat, Peppo, Billy Boss, and Hit Cat.

Tips for naming your Siamese cat

Naming a cat might seem like an easy task at first, but it can actually be more challenging than you might think. There are some important tips to keep in mind when you’re thinking about names for your cat.

Think about the length of the name

Look for names that are multiple syllables, so your cat can hear and recognize them easily, but stay away from super-complicated names that are hard to say. If you do choose a complicated, longer name, you’ll probably want to shorten it to a nickname so you can easily call your cat. Make sure all of your family members agree on the nickname since it will be easier for your cat to learn his name when you’re all using it around him.

Take into account the names of others in your household

It’s also a good idea to avoid names that sound very similar to the names of other people or pets in the household since this could confuse your cat. Also try to avoid using names that rhyme with common commands, like no.

Take your time

To find the right name, brainstorm a list of potential options. Write down all of the potential names so you can go through and gradually eliminate the ones that aren’t quite right. This strategy can help you to find the best name that really fits your cat.

Take your time figuring out the right name for your cat, and wait until you find a name that’s perfect. Sometimes, you need to get to know your cat for a couple of weeks before the right name suddenly strikes you. These names are often the best since they truly reflect and fit your cat’s personality. Once you settle on a name, make sure that you update it at your vet’s office, so it’s on all of your cat’s records. If you’ve microchipped your cat, you’ll need to update the name with the company, too. And, of course, get all of your family members to start using the name around your cat so he learns to recognize it.
