Black cats have some of the coolest options when it comes to memorable names. Some of the best black cat names are inspired by items with the hue-less color while others are inspired by fictional characters associated with black. Cute black cat names can even be influenced by celebrities and other famous people.

What fun monikers will you find on this list? Sylvester has to be near the top - especially if your cat has a white stomach. And for those who prefer a fancier name, you could go with the Looney Tunes' character's full name, Sylvester J. Pussycat Sr.

Of course, T'Challa – AKA the Black Panther – is another great name for a brave and loyal black cat. Other cute names include Midnight, Mittens, and Jack Black. Because who doesn’t love Jack Black?

Which black cat name do you think is the best? Give your favorites a thumbs up and please add any good names for black boy cats and black girl cats we may have missed.
