Help Me Name The Cat!

Postby Waldo » Thu Sep 23, 2010 5:35 am UTC

So, my neighbor has a cat living around her office that had kittens. About a week ago I adopted one of them:

Image

She's adorable, but I'm at a complete loss for a good name. Don't know much about her or her parentage, so I have no idea what she'll look like once she's older. Nothing I've come up with has been sufficiently awesome.

Any good ideas?

She's beautiful. My first thought on seeing the picture was "Samus".

I can't view the photo, so for now my suggestion is to call it Steve.

Might not mean much unless you're british, but John-Jules would be a good name for a cat.

What about calling her/him money? as in "here money" "don't do that, money"?

I once threatened to start calling the cat my roommates & I adopted Your Mom unless everyone could find a name we all agreed on.

... she ended up being Tess, short for Technical Support, which was almost as funny.

It was found around an office so name it after things you'd find there like Stapler, Paperclip, or Disgruntled Employee.

My boyfriend might as well have named his friend Catherine "Kitty" because that's what we always call her anyways. Her name, however, is Vivian.
