The Best Cat Names Inspired By ‘X-Men’ Movies

Hey cat-loving X-Men fans, are you ready for a new installment of the film series? Ready or not, it’s coming.

Dark Phoenix will be in theaters, June 6th. If you’re not caught up on all the X-Men movies so far, there’s still time. Make a date with your favorite furry, movie-watching, friend and cuddle up on the couch to start binging. Cat snacks optional.

If you just rescued a cat, know someone who did, or just want to check out a new list of cat names, this one really takes the kitty cake.

X-Men names sound like they were made for cats–Mystique, Storm, Phoenix, Raven, Night Crawler just to name a few. This is the greatest cat name list I’ve ever seen! Feel free to form your own opinion.

Here are the best cat names based on characters from the X-Men movies!

Don’t Get In Magneto Cat’s Way!

Like the Star Wars films, the X-Men movies weren’t exactly released in the chronological order of the saga. Even the timeline within the movies is very messy. That’s especially true if you consider the Deadpool movies to be canon, as they really mess things up with the cameos, references, and jokes that refer to the other movies.

Whether you choose to watch them in the order they were made or the order of the story is up to you. Just make sure to watch with a feline friend!

Below is the chronological order of the movies in terms of plot with the approximate years they take place. I’ve also included the years the films came out after the titles, just in case you want to watch them in that order, instead.

Which cat name from the list is your favorite? Is your cat named after an X-Men character? Let me know in the comments below!
