Naming your cat after a Disney villain doesn’t always mean that your cat is evil or dark. Sometimes, the name is just too cute to pass up! To make this section easier to read, we’ve broken it down into two sections, the villains and the villainessess.

Villain Names

Hook: The first Disney villain cat name on our list is Hook. This pirate name is perfect for sneaky cats with cat owners who love the film, ‘Peter Pan’.

Oogie: Oogie is a fun name to say. The villain’s full name though is Oogie Boogie.

Facilier: Facilier is a fun Disney name for cats. If it’s too hard to say, you can shorten it to ‘facil’, which is the Spanish word for easy.

Charles: Instead of Muntz, you can also call your cat Charles. This sophisticated Disney name is a lot of fun to explain to people.

Yzma: Yzma is a favorite villain for many. She’s comical and is in the film, ‘The Emperor’s New Groove’.
