Himalayan Cat with blue eyesAlthough all kittens have blue eyes at first, most cats’ eyes become green or brown as they mature. Some cats’ eyes remain blue, however, which always makes for an extra-striking appearance. That’s why it just makes sense to give your blue-eyed beauty a name that suits their beautiful eyes. Here is a list of our favourite names:
Azure — Referring to the blue sky, “Azure” is a beautiful name for a Siamese or Himalayan cat with blue eyes.
Aqua — If you think of water, you probably think of the colour blue — making this a beautiful way to name your cat after the blue waters of your favourite lake or river.
Mare — Meaning “ocean”, this name is perfect for those blue-eyed cats whose eyes are anything from the shade of the sea on a calm day to the blue-grey of a stormy ocean.
Lapis Lazuli — A blue stone which was at one time also used to make blue paint for manuscripts, this is a grand name for the royalty of the house.
Atasi — From Indian origin, “Atasi” refers to a blue flower.
Cornflower — Striking blue eyes, like that of the blue of cornflowers deserves a beautiful name.

Darel — From Aboriginal origin, “Darel” means “blue sky”.  
Gormain — An Irish name, “Gormain” simply means “blue” (but what a beautiful way to say blue!).
