    Need help naming a our kitten

    I was going to put this in family and friends, as I hope she'll be both, but decided as we have a puppy naming thread here, I'll keep it neat and tidy.

    JP's mum is getting us a kitten as a birthday present for me and a house warming gift for both of us (I've wanted a cat for so long now). We don't have her yet, but she is black and white and will be 8 weeks old when we get her. The problem is that we can't agree on a name for her. I suggested Magpie, as it's my spirit animal, but JP thinks it would shortened to Meg, and his mum's dog is called Meg. I suggested Poppy, but he said the cat isn't red (weird response but I'm used to him). We thought of Japanese names, but we're hard core Japanophiles as it is, we shouldn't drag uchi no koneko into that nonesense too.

    So.. maybe something witchy? I'd rather not name her after Brigantia. It would be like calling a cat Jesus. Just, weird.

    We're open to ideas. Hopefully there'll be something we can agree on.

    Call her Nietzsche. That's what I would do anyway.

    I tend to go with odd or uncommon names. I like Magpie, that's cool and has variations to play with. I've had cats named KQ, KZ and Fancy. I've thought about DC (but I don't like the assumed connection to Washington D.C.), JD and Pookah. I've found that every cat I've had has seemed to enjoy one specific sound or another and I'll try to use that sound in their name. As long as I can raise people's eyebrows, at the same time. *wink*

    Re: Need help naming a our kitten

    I have to be careful with odd names. I have a bad track record. I named a hamster Schizophrenic and she bit off her own foot, my most recent and beloved hamster was called Qwerty, but I affectionately called her Squirty, or 'my little squirty bum'. She died of wet tail: basically sh*t herself to death. :S

    It doesn't end there. Trying to make light of my eating disorder as a teen, I called my goldfish Bulemia and Anorexia. I've no idea how, but one day, little Anorexia just vanished (we did have a cat at the time), so everyone joked that Bulemia had eaten Anorexia. I do wonder sometimes, he was much, much larger.

    There was another example, but I can't recall. I'm thinking of maybe Yuki. Last Christmas, JP and I fell in love with the kitten on the Wiskers advert, who got snow on its head. We even made up a silly song about it. Although I didn't really want to give it a weaboo name, Yuki means 'snow' in Japanese and is a nice name for a cat.

    Lol Dral, sadly I know a little bit German on account of living there for a while (disaster, I'm trying to forget it happened, and yet keep bringing it up..hmm) so know that isn't a fitting name for a kitten!

    Perhaps, the most long lived cat ever, would be a better name with your track record then eh?

    That was just the most ridiculous German word I could think of off the top of my head lmao

    Warum war Deutschland sehr slecht :/ ?
