I think it entirely depends on what your next pussycat looks like.

It's no use calling it Smudge or Smokey or Ash if it's a ginger tiger. They're grey names.

We have a black cat named after a black bird (Raven) and a dark tabby called Shadow - when I rescued her, she followed me everywhere and you can't see her in the dark, like my shadow. I don't know what her name was previously but she's not answered to Shadow now for 17 years.

I believe in giving cats dignified names - which can be adjusted to something less formal if that seems appropriate.

Right now we are down to one cat, Joshua, and considering getting a companion kitten, so thinking about names. Minerva is one I rather like. (After all, it's good enouig for Professor Minerva McGonagall, who makes a very fine cat when she chooses to do so.)

Many years back I 'rescued' a beautiful blue persian called Noushka from a well to do home who got fed up with her as soon as she grew out of being a pretty kitten. I renamed her Noo Noo and we both lived happily ever after!

Cats supposedly respond to "s" and "sh" sounds, so a name with lots of those sounds in it should work well.

"Sorry-Assed Sack of Shit" would be a great choice.

Mine, a long haired tortoiseshell is called "Morgana the Flatulent" because when small she farted when you picked her up and as she was recently weaned and just switching her metabolism from milk to meat and cereal, her farts were vehement!!! She is usually known as "Little Wugsie" tho' and "Moglet"
I knew a master of wine whose Mog was called "Muscat"

A girlfriend of many years past had one named "biscuit". Don't ask me why. If it caught you laying on your back, it would bounce on it's front paws alternately, rapidly, on your belly.

As a young lad a tabby named Giddildy sounds like the beginning of a limerick.

I usually name cats for things (I had one named Garlic) and dogs for people, but right now I have a cat named Galya (pronounced Gaia) and one named Fudge, who was originally Pudge but I didn't like that.

How about Mudcat, or is that too obvious?

Problem is, it all depends on the personality of the kitten. And they change as they grow, to make it more complicated. Had a cat called Bundle once who became a very dignified adult cat, so he had to be renamed Cato, after the Roman politician.
Bonnie Shaljean and I once shared two cats, one named Dunstable and one called Felicity. Sort of summed up their personalities. (Bundle/Cato was Dunstable's kitten, as it happens). My cat these days is Cleo, but I had no hand at all in the naming of her as she was my husband's cat before we met. She also answers to "Mog", "Madame la Mogue", "Pops" and "where's that cat?" but gives me very old fashioned looks if I call her Furryfeatures or Fishface.

Well, if it's the COMMONEST type of alleycat you could name it "Chairman Mao."

I once knew someone (a psychologist) whose cat was "Walter Ego."

And, yes, if he's the peein'est of the litter, you name him Liberace.

If you're a B. Kliban fan, you could name the kitty "Meatloaf."

And there are many wonderful cat names in T S Elliot's "Old Possum's Book ..." on which the musical "Cats" was based.

Ours have been

Velocette (named after a kind of old British motorbike with distinctive quiet purr)
Velcro (her clingy sister)
Gunther (named by her previous owner, an opera buff, after a character in Wagner)
Muriel (so-called because whe was grey)
Ishmael (named after the writer Ishmael Reed because he had the same big soulful eyes)
Ishtar (his sister, I'd have preferred Ishfemael but Marion didn't like it)
Mingus (I was on a roll naming black cats after Black artists)
Zeke (named after a nasty Usenet troll on one one of the cat groups, just to annoy him)
Chloe (named by a previous owner)
Splodge (he just looked at me and told me that was his name)
Marblecake (ditto)
Marblecake's kittens:
- Poppy (darker striped like a poppyseed cake)
- Eccles (mostly black like an Eccles cake)
- Gerald (he just looked like a Gerald)
- Siouxsie (weird punkish markings, so named after the singer)
- Pip (named after one of Marion's relatives)
- Ollie (ditto, or short for Apollo the sun god since he's bright golden)
- Polly (she just wanted to be called that)
- Courtney (another punkette and has lived up to it ever since)

I think the cleverest cat names I've ever thought up were for somebody on Usenet who didn't use them. They had two black kittens and were fixated on demoniac names for them. I wanted them named after two Black brother cats with impressive meows, Wynton and Branford.

There is a computer geek on rec.pets .cats.anecdotes who called her cat Cat-5.

At one point all my cats had sailing names.........Cutter, Luff, Genoa, Vang, Hobie..................Think themes maybe.

Or, when we got our Cornish Rex, living here in the States we thought "Moggy" was sort of neat. Now we just have somewhat common names.......Roamin, Bixby, Sloop, Pepper, and Shug.

I have one named after a character in the movie 'Willow' (Madmardigan) and two named after Montreal Canadiens, at least they were when I got the cats..(Sheldon for Sheldon Souray and Mikey for Mike Komisarek and the Life Cereal kid because he hates everything but dry cat food).

My family tends to name our pets with human names rather than the tired old "fluffy" and "boots" and such.

You just observe the cat and compare him to the rest of the litter.
If he's the fuzziest, you name him fuzzy.
If he's the jumpiest, you name him jumpy.
If he pees the most, you name him Liberace.
