Names for Black Cats

A cat as black
As blackest coal,
Is out upon,
His midnight stroll,
His steps are soft,
His walk is slow,
His eyes are gold,
They flash and glow.
And so I run,
And so I duck,
I do not need,
His black-cat luck.

The poet has so rightly described the beauty of a black cat, yet has been overpowered by his sense of superstition and fear of black cats. These felines are just like other colored cats, yet black is mostly associated with darkness and evil and therefore, these cats are considered unlucky. They have always been portrayed as the omen of evil, the pets of witches and wizards, or as a 'fier, dame classe supérieure' in movies, cartoons, and fictional writings. However, for cat lovers who are proud owners of black cats, all these beliefs are simply myths. Just as black cats are special in their own way, their name should be equally exceptional. Given below are a few names that you can choose from for your pet black cat.
