And Geronimo was supposed to be Amadeus, but I ended up naming him Geronimo b/c he's such a "warrior".
That's just my opinion..
I tried to make sure our cats had musical themed names, given that my BB (Best Beloved) and I are both classical music fans.... so we narrowed it down to two names before we went to get a cat. Crotchet, and Minim. That way we could also have two cats and still make it work. As it happened, we fell in love with a cat called Emma (
) but she didn't looks like either a Crotchet or a Minim. We took her home. After a couple of days of hiding in the closet, she came out and took a leap at the window after a bird. She hit it so
hard that the latch slipped and she almost went falling four floors!
Thank the Lord she didn't!! BUT, on the bright side, even though she had a headache, she inspired us to call her Tosca, a musical themed name - from the famous character who threw herself to her death in the opera.
Bootie on the other hand, is kinda musical in a roundabout way. She was very wobbly because of her brain damage, while she was still trying to figure out how many legs she had and how they worked. We had thought about calling her Grace (which she really had none of), or Faith because she was the last surviving kitten of 6 and she was the smallest and weakest. But when she finally got to her feet and managed to walk, her butt swung from side to side all the time. We tried Beyonce, but it didn't really stick. It wasn't quite her. BUT, "Bootylicious" came to mind..... it was a song, therefore a musical theme.... so Bootie it was.
I would definitely see what this kitten is like personality wise
You'd be amazed at how well it works!
