With coats typically consisting of black, orange, and white patches, calico cats are naturally colorful — and fun to name.

Drawing on everything from foods and flowers to gemstones and household items, we've collected 160+ names for the new calico cat or calico kitten in your life.

Like calico cats themselves, the list is a mix of evocative influences, from the everyday to the exotic, the common and the obscure.

Because the vast majority of calico cats are female (it's a chromosome thing), our selections skew that way but also included are some names for male cats and others that can be applied to kittehs of both genders.
