We've just acquired a new kitten and are trying to think up a suitable name. She's a dark tortoiseshell, very tiny with big yellow eyes. As some of you may know we already have a cat called Loki. Any suggestions? We don't know much about her character yet as we can't pick her up til next week

Dammit. Helps when you call her: "Come get yer dindins, Dammit" or "Get off of there, Dammit" or "Dammit, leave me alone" or "Get away from the fish, Dammit."

Wait till you get to know her and something will just seem to fit.

Examples:

My brother's cat is named "Tucker" because he was severely undernourished when he was little and was always "all tuckered out". He was almost named "Geronimo" because he was rescued from some kids who were throwing him up in the air and letting him fall. He seems like a "Tucker" now if you don't know the origins of the name (if you do, it's all wrong because he's more of an evil genius).

My dog's name is White Diamond because she was a skinny, dirty, disoriented dog-pound parolee and my mother said, "You're absolutely the ugliest dog I have ever seen. You need a pretty name." Mom studied crystals in graduate school and loves gemstones, so "Diamond" it was. On the one hand, it's much too dignified a name for her, but she is certainly a unique, kind, and extremely lovable dog so overall, it fits her fine.

I've had foster cats named Clementine (for her enormous Number Nine paws) and Zorro (because he was a spoiled bottle baby and grew up to be a fearless holy terror). My parents fostered some cockapoo/schnauzer puppies named Buster Keaton and Charlie Chaplin, partly for their comic personalities and partly because Charlie in particular had furry "baggy pants" like the little tramp.

Our new kitten arrives today, the previous owners found her more than a handfull. She is already named Gua Gua as she was found near a melon stall ( melon has the root gua in Chinese) I will NOT be calling her Melon, how can a cat have street cred with a name like that?

Jade has objected to the name 'Lash (the Cat)' and even objected to 'Ginger Khan'. So it will 'Oi', 'You!', 'Bloody Animal!'

How about Smitten the Kitten...corny I know but..

I have two Cats that own me and one that graces our property with his presence on occassion. The Female Kitty is called Molly Malone, this is due to the sounds she made when I found her abandoned.
Her wee cries for help made me think of the lines "alive, alive oh."..I know I'm nuts..
The Tomcat we have is called Simon...from Simon Templar fame...because he behaved so well when I brought him Home even though he too had been tossed out and had been living wild for a while... for a 12 week old Tom he was remarkably calm. He behaved like a "Saint" really..!
Our visting Feral... ...well nothing actually...seems wrong to name Him..:>)
I like to think they named themselves but they do not care what I called them..just that I love them and feed them obviously.
Told you I was nuts Pixie...:>)

Pixie, you could use the same naminging principle that Menolly seems to have used for her dog
it is called "Deefor" as in "D for dog"
and call it "Seefor"as in "C for Cat"
but if you want to continue the Northern theme
Freya
Brunnhilde
or even Ceri ( not Northern trsd, I know) short for Ceridwen
and prounounced Kerry

All cats have the same name. It's the sound a can opener makes.

Seriously. Get to know the animal first or you'll never be quite happy about the name. The cate I live with are Fenris, for his aggressiveness and appetite; Orca, for her coloring and appetite; Hector, for his hectoring way with the other cats; and Melvin, because he's too silly for words.

Well, some of Mortimer's other names are "Just a Minute Mortimer"and "Move, Mortimer". I once had two male kittens who were brothers. Their first names were "Off the Couch" and "You Too" but later evolved into Foolish (Foosh) and Marmalade. The were twins -- couldn't tell them apart except that the orange one had a fatter face than the black and white one.

We also had a cat named Peppersass, which is a contraction of Pepper Sauce and also the name of the first engine on the Mount Washington Cog Railway.

Mine are Ed, Alice, Lizzie (she started as Elizabeth but it didn't suit her) and Freddy.

I have had a LuLu, Munchkin (who quickly became Munch), Mandy(Amanda), (The)Princess, Homey (as in "Homey don't do that" from Living In Color), Fred, Susie (sometimes, SusieQ), Lucifer - all strays and mostly adult cats who came without their previous names and lived out their final years spoiled as all cats deserve to be.

Learn who your kittie is before you name her.

Our new kitten is no longer Gua-Gua. She is now known as Punk.

She is a long haired white and ginger, and as the ginger colour is in a stripe starting on her head and finishing on her tail she looks a tad like one of those punk rockers from the 80's.

Just wish she would stop biting my toes at 4 a.m.!

I agree that you should just wait and meet the kitten first.

I once was engaged to a young man who brought home a kitten for me. It was a sweet thing to do and he was being thoughtful as he knows that I absolutely LOVE cats. He had named the cat but it never quite fit. With the engagement ending shortly thereafter, I changed the cat's name and it fit perfectly....the cat and I were in complete agreeement!

Our current cats are named: Festre, Daphne, Normie, Goose, Ellie and Millie

We've also had: Munch, Tasha, Einstein, Luther, Flash and Muffin

=^..^= Yep, I love those kitties!

Good luck with yours and let us know what you name her!

My two are Misty & Treacle Tart. Very apt names, Misty is a total air-head & often walks round the house miaowing at only she knows what, & treacle tart sticks like glue to my legs, especially in the kitchen when I'm cooking, hoping something tasty might just drop into her mouth. Athough as she's now got older & wiser, & been trodden on & kicked so many times when I didn't see her, She now tends to just pop in & out to see if anythings fallen. My old cat was Bonnie & was just that, a bonny little girl.
Live with your new pudding & find out her purrrr-sonality.

Pixie - are there any little brother or sister kittens that we could acquire one of please? Since the demise of Amber, Limpit has been promised a kitten and we've not been able to track one down yet.

Having spent some of this weekend with a canine called Deefer (as in D for dog), I'm toying with the idea of Sifa or Kick as potential names.

Actually possibly Liz, I spoke to someone a few weeks ago who told me that all her kittens had been rehomed but I got a message from her saying that she had someone change there mine and there was one left. I know its a boy, I'm just waiting to hear back from her on whether he still needs a home and on whether he's wormed, injected etc. I can keep you informed if you like, we don't really need two kittens! Not sure what colour he is or anything though
