Well, I named Ginger based upon her coloring after having had her at home for most of a whole day after adopting her. She has no middle name, but I find myself calling her Baby Girl more often than not.
And Ferris was named Ferris by his foster family after he was captured, and I liked it so I kept it, but added Bueller as his middle name. His nicknames include Poopybum and Little Man.
I'll be adding Tinta to the family in May after picking her up from Kai Bengals (can't wait to meet her!
) and her full name is: Kaibengals Tinta Preta No Ouro, which means Black Ink (or spots) on Gold.
I'm a little bit iffy with calling her Tinta, as it doesn't roll so easily off my tounge, and have been thinking about calling her Tina, just pulling that awkward second "t" out of there. But I plan to just wait until I have her at home, and we see how things go!
I'm sure I'll come up with some nicknames for this beautiful queen - she may wind up being called Big Sissa (sister,) as that is how I am explaining her coming into our home to the two furkids in residence. I keep telling them they are getting a big sister to love them.
