Who doesn’t have a pet lion? They’re all the rage right now! Seriously though, lions are awesome animals and should not be underestimated.
I don’t recommend having one as a pet if you don’t have good experience and background working with big cats because you might become their next meal if you don’t know what you’re doing!
Tips for Naming a Lion
Like people, lions need names, too! Whether you’re a lion tamer for a circus, a zookeeper, a lion owner at home, or a proud, new owner to a stuffed lion, there are a plethora of names waiting to be given to your lion; it’s just a matter of finding the perfect one! Here are some tips:
- Features: Lions are big cats, with all of the cat-like features, just bigger. Keep their features in mind when thinking of lion names.
- Symbols: What do lions symbolize? These furrrocious cats symbolize strength, bravery, and power, so think about this when brainstorming.
- Africa: When people think of lions, they think of Africa because they’re native to the land. Using any names inspired by Africa, I’d be lyin’ if I said you could go wrong!
Finding the right name for your lion may take some time, but time is all you have as you will be saying this name for the rest of the lion’s life (or yours)! So take your sweet time to come up with a purrrfect name for that lion of yours.
Need a few ideas? Not a problem! I have compiled a list of some of the best lion names out there, so take a look and find the one that you need!
Males lions are an icon of strength and bravery, and their names should have that feel. Try one of these names to see if it is a good fit for your male lion.
Maybe you're looking for a great name for the Queen of the Jungle instead. Try these out lioness names; you might just find the perfect match!
Lions are cute, especially as cubs, so here are a few names that are suitable for those adorable, growing cubs that will be good going into their adult lion years as well.
Lion King Names
Okay, all of these are from The Lion King movies and book, and you likely know the names already! They’re good ones, though.
Since lions are native to Africa, it only makes sense to at least look at the African-inspired names!
Here’s a list of names that either mean “lion” or come from the word.
Fun Facts About Lions
For those who are here learning about lions, how about a few fun facts? There’s a lot to learn about lions!
- Lions are pack animals, which means they stick together in the wild and thrive better in a group. A group of lions is referred to as a “pride,” which usually consists of 15 or more lions.
- Lions sleep up to 20 hours per day. Typical cat!
- Lions can run up to 50 mph in short bursts.
- Female lions do the majority of the hunting while the males protect the group.
- Lions can roar so loud that you can hear it from 5 miles away!
- Male lions grow to be more than 400 pounds in their adult years!
- The heaviest lion ever recorded weighed in at a whopping 826 pounds!
- Lions live about 15 years in the wild but 25-30 years in captivity.
- Lions are the second largest species of cat. The tiger has one up on the lion.
Now that you are all book-smart about lions, do you think you’re ready to own one? If not, then you can always get a stuffed animal and pretend! Either way, you should have no trouble coming up with a name fit for a king, the King of the Jungle!
With all of these lion names, you probably found a few good ones that will suit your feline friend. Take time to find one that you truly love as much as you love that lion!

Aslan is Turkish for 'lion.' That's where C.S.Lewis got the name for his deity in The Lion the Witch and the Wardrobe. I didn't find this out til years after I read the series.
But it makes sense. God was often compared / contrasted in power / might /ferocity with lions and bulls. Lewis was a Theology professor.
