I like the many names of the Goddess

And i just got a new kitty. She is black but if you look closer she's got orange spots that are covered by her black fur and she's got a small white spot on her chest. She's very sweet and very playful.
What Goddess name would you give her?

  • Cybele
    Myth name of a Phrygian goddess of fertility adopted by the Greeks and Romans. The true meaning of the name is uncertain; the traditional derivation is "she of the hair."

  • Ohh, how about Palu? She is the Celtic Cat Goddess!

    Freyja is also associated with cats and her name mean's "The Lady"

    I could find you more but I am very sleepy! Good luck in picking a good name! You know if you can't choose you could always right them down and let her pick!

  • Maftet (sometimes Mafdet) would be a cool choice, she is an early Egyptian goddess often depicted with the head of a cheetah. Since your kitty has subtle spots a cheetah connection would be neat.

  • I suddenly feel stupid. I forgot "Bast" was a name of a cat goddess in mythology and gave the name to a male shapeshifter in one of my novels. Color me embarrassed. I was going to name him Bastian but I didn't wanna go all "Never-Ending Story" on everyone LOL Oops. Oh well.
