You have lot’s of options.

Celui = This
Chat = cat
Noir = black
Blanc = white


or just something random like Tres Chat!
Precious cat.

Bébé doux
Sweet baby.

Or frou Frou moliere (Sp) .... *That’s nasty, it’s slang.

Mélange has a mellifluous, soft sound to it. Means “mixture” or “combination”, which captures the black-and-whiteness, but the ”-ange” part evokes a nice double-entendre, meaning “angel”.

Not French, but your cat reminded me of the love object from Pepe le Pew…looked her up, and found out her name is Penelope Pussycat…so, Penelope gets my vote…

@thorninmud Melange to me has to do with geology or fabric.

My old kitty that passed away a couple of years ago was named “Gadwicke”, silent “e” on “wick.” I picked his name from an Atlas, Gadwicke is a town in england.

We gave him the “title” of ” Gadwicke, son of Smethwicke of Mt. Aukum” where I lived. lol

I miss my Gad man! :-D

Chouchoute (shoo-shoot): it’s a French term of endearment for something that is one’s favorite (and a bit of a pun: “ma chouchoute” can be translated as “my pet”).

Petit chou (which means little cabbage).

Sinueux (which means sinuous)

OK, this one’s a bit arcane, but cats positively adore arcanity:


It’s the nickname for the flag of Bretagne, the westernmost French province. It means “white and black” in the local dialect.

It was also the name of a local terrorist group, which is fitting for any cat

Noisette [nwah-ZEHT]

Means “little nut” or “tender morsel”.

My former cat was named Mewsette. She was an all white Norwegian Forest Cat we found at the pound and quite the little queen. I think it’s a fancy, but sweet name.

Bonus, this movie totally rules.

Double bonus, your pet will have a theme song – hell, and entire soundtrack – for those embarrassing moments when we all sing and dance around with our fluffy friends.

I also thought about naming my black and white female kitten after Robespierre in the film. And the villain has a cute name as well, Meowrice. Gender & sex discrepancies be damned!

Aww. @asmonet took my answer. Love that movie. Jean Tom? Jean Tom where are you?

Renard means fox in French. I can’t remember if it had an ‘e’ on the end or not. It was my name in French class.
Just make sure you don’t use the French name for skunk!
