It's time to choose her name (Part II)

post #1 of 29
Thread Starter 
Okay, guys, since there were so many great ideas suggested for a new name for my neighbor's abandoned cat "Come Here," and at the suggestion of a member to narrow it down to the top picks, I'm starting a new poll.

Here's a picture of the lovely kitty in question:



To really narrow down the list, I'm including the names from the original poll that had four or more votes. (I loved all the names!) I'm also adding the names Maggie (this was suggested but I mistakenly left it out of the original poll) and Hope because it seems appropriate (this doesn't mean you have to vote for it!)

Last thing, I've included the name Gracie, which got 4 votes. I LOVE that name but, since I already have a Gracie myself, it might get a little confusing if Come Here is with us for any length of time. But, if you guys want her to be Gracie, then majority rules.

Please vote when you have a chance! Thanks, guys.

If you're interested, here's a link to how Come Here came to be in my care:

She looks more like a Sophie. She is a beautiful cat.

She looks like a Maggie to me - can't really explain it. I just thought that name when I saw her picture before I even read the choices! What a pretty girl she is too!

She is so beautiful! I don't know how you can give her up. I wouldn't be able to.

Now that I see fewer names and her picture with them, I chose "Maggie". It just seems to fit

She still looks like an Emma to me. Although I do like a couple of the other names. She's really a pretty cat!

I voted for Emma. It was my Great-Grandma's name and I absolutely love the name.

Emma is my grandma's name too! She already has one family cat named after her. I'm sure she won't mind another. Not that this gorgeous girl is staying. I'd love to keep her, but four's my limit. You guys know that!

I REALLY liked Macy but I voted for Maggie out of these choices.
post #9 of 29
Okay, Sophie is gonna have to work for me now since Macy has gone from the list. She is very pretty and all the Sophies that I know are pretty.

Sorry to everybody who liked Macy. I thought it was very cute too. I hate to eliminate all the names that got few than 3 votes, though. There were just too many good ones!
post #11 of 29
Since my original name pick was deleted I guess I am choosing Cinderella
post #12 of 29
I love Emma, too -- but I voted Maggie. And you're right, Hope is lovely -- but it's not a name that lends itself to being called out at suppertime, y'know? And they say animals learn their names more easily if they have "ee" endings... so I say Maggie!

I love the name Gracie too, but please don't make me have two of them in my house, even if it's only temporary. My own Gracie is sweet and adorable, but she's also quite the diva and won't like sharing her name.

Having had the chance to get to know Come Here a little bit this weekend, I can honestly say I have three top pics among the choices listed. I don't want to sway your votes, though, so will keep my mouth shut for now.

She spent most of yesterday under the bed, emerging only to eat a little and use the box. She also hissed whenever I spoke to her, so I gave her some space. Today she's out and about in her room, still a little unsure of herself, but very sweet. She's quite the the little lady, headbutting my hand for attention, gently putting her paw on my arm for more and practically prancing around the room when I tell her how pretty she is.

Hope that helps!

I voted for Sophie. But I like Hope, Emma, Gracie, and Cinder too.
post #16 of 29
I chose Maggie only because it rolls out easily when you say it as though you're calling for her--"Maaaaa--giiiiieeeeeee"
post #17 of 29
I voted for Cinderella...Cinders for short.
post #18 of 29
I still vote for Madeline (Maddy)
post #19 of 29
Still Cinder all the way for me, she just looks like a cinder and the cinderella story is perfect for her history...
post #20 of 29
I'll put my vote in for Maggie!
post #21 of 29
I voted for Cinderella, but I would call her Cinderelly or Elly for short.

Okay, guys, I have to admit that since I saw the name Maggie was in the lead I asked Come Here if she wanted to be Maggie and she meowed at me for the first time in two days. Sorry, couldn't help myself.

Still not trying to sway anyone's votes, really! I love all the names and am grateful for everyone's suggestions. I think they all suit her, just need to pick that purrfect one!
post #23 of 29
I think since "Maggie" has 12 votes and she meowed, that the decision is already made
post #24 of 29
I voted for Maggie too.
Lets all send vibes that this beautiful kitty has a forever, loving home real soon.

Thank you Eileen for caring.

Yes, it does seem like the kitty in question has "spoken." I'll wait till the poll closes to make it official, though.
post #26 of 29
Cinderella - but Ella for short!
My aunt is Maggie - I can't call her that!
post #27 of 29
I think she definitely looks like a Maggie! She's a very pretty kitty girl. My newest addition, Jack (who is only 9 weeks old), is gray and white and has very similar markings! I think I just got a glimpse of what he might look like when he gets older!

Well, guys, the poll is now closed and Maggie it is! It really suits this gorgeous girl and the timing is perfect because I'm taking her to the vet this afternoon and can register her under her new name.

Many thanks to everybody for all the great name suggestions. I loved them all! Thanks so much for voting too.

Pics of Maggie coming later. I can't wait for you all to see how pretty she is.
