Delve into the magical world of “Harry Potter” with this enchanting list of 101 cat names inspired by J.K. Rowling’s beloved series. This compilation is perfect for fans looking to name their feline friends after their favorite characters, spells, creatures, or places from the Harry Potter universe.

From the wise “Albus” (after Albus Dumbledore) to the brave “Hermione,” each name carries the essence of the series’ lore. Choose “Luna” for a dreamy cat, “Sirius” for a loyal companion, or “Dobby” for a playful pet. For those who admire the darker aspects of the series, names like “Bellatrix” or “Nagini” offer a nod to some of the most memorable villains.

Not just limited to characters, this list also includes names inspired by magical creatures like “Fawkes” (the phoenix) and enchanting places like “Hogwarts.” Each name not only reflects the magical spirit of the Harry Potter series but also holds the potential to be a perfect match for your cat’s unique personality.
