300 Best Egyptian Cat Names

Egyptian Cat Names

If you have got yourself a cat and you’d like to try out some Egyptian names, you have come to the right blog. Here, we have listed 300 Egyptian cat names that you can select from. However, below is a brief background of domestic cats and Egypt.

Do you know from whence came domestic cats? Analysis implies a wild cat from the Near East. The first cat is suspected to be about ten thousand years old! It was known as Felis sylvestris lybica.

This was the pet. There is no question about biologists who are given top honors for this wild cat’s first domestication. The old Egyptians, however, are likely contenders.

Some years ago, in what is the Republic of Cyprus today, once under Egyptian control, a rare burial site was found.

Archeologists unarthed two mummies in this 9,500 year-old burial site: a man and a cat. The cat lived side by side with the human being as a pet from all indications.

Being felines came with a lot of privilege and power in ancient Egypt. An interesting story about an epic war with rival Persia cant be told without mentioning cats. On their shields, the Persian army drew cats. A number of cats were released before the Egyptian troops.

The Egyptian troops rapidly gave up. By unintentionally hurting any one of the cats, they did not want to risk offending their loved cat goddess, Bastet! This story is not entirely accurate, we’re not sure. However, there is undoubtedly something about the Egyptians feeling about cats!

Now that we are done telling cat tales, here are some of the best Egyptian cat names to pick from.
