Agatha Christie–Inspired Names for Mysterious Cats



Why do you humans have such a difficult time naming cats? Here is a hint: “Kitty” and “Fluffy” are uninspired names.* We cats deserve better, and so I, Miss Cuddlywumps, am here to help you. I have located a place on the Internet that has a whole list of potential cat names inspired by Agatha Christie characters. Aside from the obvious “Hercule,” “Poirot,” and “Miss Marple,” here is a sample of my favorite names:


  • Mitzi (from A Murder Is Announced)
  • Lexie (from Mrs. McGinty’s Dead)
  • Japp (Inspector Japp from the Poirot stories)
  • Clancy (from Death in the Clouds)
  • Biggs (from One Two Buckle My Shoe)


Visit Cat Names HQ for even more ideas. Give your feline companions the dignified names they deserve. Please.

(*She of Little Talent hastens to add: Miss C means no disrespect to cats named Kitty or Fluffy. We’re sure they are wonderful cats who are loved by their humans.†)
(†Miss Cuddlywumps hastens to add: Cats named Kitty or Fluffy are more than likely embarrassed and a little bit depressed. They would be better named Daphne or Jinny.)
