What NOT to Name Your Black Cat

With all of the awful myths out there about black cats, there are some names you should NOT name your black cat, because all those particular names do is encourage superstitious people to continue thinking the way they do.  I would like to see those myths be dispelled so that fewer black cats are put down at various shelters just because they were black.  So, if you do adopt a black cat or acquire one from whatever means, please consider not naming her any of the following:

  1. Demon

5. Death

9. Goblin

13. Darth Vader

17. Bad JuJu

21. Morticia

2. Halloween

6. Dracula

10. Satan

14. Nightmare

18. Ghost

22. Creepy

3. Hellraiser

7. Vampire

11. Devil

15. Exorcist

19. Voodoo

23. Sorcerer

4. Witch(y)

8. Wicked

12. Evil

16. Warlock

20. Spook(y)

24. Monster

I am sure you could think of many more great names for a black cat as well as some names that are best to not call your black cat.  One could make the argument that your cat would have no idea what the name means, but YOU do know what it means as well as other people who might just love the fact that you have a derogatory name for your black cat as a reason to capture her and torture her.

Please feel free to comment below on any other names, both good or bad names for a black cat.  Would love to see what you come up with.
