What did the breeder call his markings? Looks like a seal lynx point with that dark nose and ears? What's his name? How old is he? Sooooo cuuuuute!

The breeder listed him as a Tortie point, though I really don't know much about the markings and such (first purebred cat I have). About the name, I got him less than a week ago, and we're still thinking what to call him, any suggestions would be greatly appreciated! We were thinking something like Churchill, but I really am out of ideas In the first pic I don't know his age, but in the others (just taken today) he's 3 1/2 months old.

After looking for a while online it does look like a Lynx, though I found this site:
http://www.thecatscrib.com/HimalayanCat.htm
"Color-points should be restricted to the face mask, legs, tail, feet and genitals. To say that the color-points are varied is an understatement although most fall into a description of the Lynx color category. The lynx colors accepted include: seal, blue, red, cream, tortie, blue-cream, chocolate, lilac, chocolate-tortie and lilac-cream. Main grouping colors that are accepted include blue, chocolate, cream, red-tortie and seal-lilac."

Couldn't he be like a lynx-tortie or something like that? I really have no idea about this so any help would be appreciated so I can better understand this.

Oh God, he makes me remember why I quit breeding them.....they're so cute that they're hard to let go of! Frankly though, I wouldn't call him a tortie.....when I was breeding, tortie was strictly limited to girls.......so many color points have been added since I retired though, that I wouldn't know what to call him.....except CUTE!!!!

He cost around 600 USD in mexican currency, originally was around 10500 but my uncle works with the breeder so I got a discount. But I've seen them cheaper (like 500 without any discount)

He looks ALOT like my female, and she is registered as a blue lynx point.
