October and cats go together like Linus and the Great Pumpkin. Both the month and the animal are as mysterious as they are beautiful, and both carry just a hint of unpredictability. So when you're trying to come up with a name for a cat born or adopted in October, you need something that's as unique as the month itself.
The name choices for an October cat can be inspired either by the obvious Big Holiday or by the other traditional sights of the season. If your cat is black, you're almost obligated to go with witchy/wizardy names, but there are other, more generic autumnal names, as well as Halloween-themed names, that work well with cats of any color.
Depending on what day of the month your cat was born or adopted in, astrologers say its personality will be shaped by its sign. Cats born between October 1-20 are Libras who love nothing more than to be near their human companions, and get anxious if their people come home late, according to Cat Astrology. Cats born from October 21-31 are the mysterious Scorpios, craving love and intuitive to their people's feelings, yet expecting their humans to know instinctively what they need.
Whatever color or personality your October cat has, it needs a name that reflects its time of year. Here are some suggestions for seasonal names that should suit your autumn cat:
