The Cat Name Thread

post #1 of 24
Thread Starter 
It is a new year so it means we can use up all our cat names again at the shelter (our accounting system only lets us use names one per year) so if you have any good cat names that aren't the usual ones (Fluffy, Princess etc) I would love to have them. We especially need names for groups of kittens, we always put them in a theme so we know which kittens belong to which litter when we have lots of kittens in summer.

They can be your cats' names or just ones you think are cute/interesting

I do not think there are to many cats named Meeko.
I call my Oreo Cookie Monster.
Coco,Cleopatra and Sasha I think are to common for you to use.
You can name one Yoshi.

Well, considering they're all "stranded" and don't have homes yet, how about names that are related - such as:

~Gilligan
~Skipper (etc.)
~Caruso (as in Robinson Caruso)
~Castaway (as in the movie)

Just to name a few..

ETA: You can use any of my furbies' names too, if you so desire. Gabriel, Jinxy & Salem are pretty common names I think, but I haven't heard of too many cats named Maverick, Geronimo, Winchester, Spencer, Ricochet, Chiquita, & Cassidy.

OMG so it is! I didn't realize that till you mentioned it.

Good name, BTW. If I end up adopting that beautiful black furbie that's been hanging around outside, I've pretty much decided that his name is gonna be either Montgomery or Jericho - probably Montgomery, b/c he just looks like a Montgomery. Unless he's a she, that is. Then it will probably be either Kismet, Karma, or Shasta.
