All my cats' registered names are in malay...that way, I know that the names would not be refused!
For example:Masmera Cahaya Bulan
(which means Moonlight) call named Bu (or variations thereof, she understands)
Masmera Sinar Suria (which means Sunshine) call named Suria (see above...
Masmera Kelip Bintang (which mean Twinkling Star) ...hmmm she has no call name she's just Bintang (star).
My new foundations is pre-named by me. The female's registered name (Cattery, can't tell, it's still a secret) Solehah of Masmera, call name is Lehah (the breeder is already calling her that).
My new red male will be ______________(also a secret
) Marikh of Masmera. His call name is Mars (which is what Marikh means).
And the other male will be called ___________ (am I secretive or what?
) Mithali of Masmera, call name is Ali.
Having said all that...I usually name all my kittens for registration. No issues for pet kittens, the new owners can change the name(s) since the kitten has not and will not be shown. But for CFA if the kitten HAS been shown under a registered name then the name CANNOT be changed.
