I can't see a picture.

My suggestion is to name her after a favorite book character. My cat is Kinsey name after Kinsey Milhone from the mystery series by Sue Grafton. My cat that died last year was named Pouncequick from a book about cats call Tailchasers song.

If you don't have a favorite book character name her after a favorite yarn.
May Peace Prevail on Earth.

I like Hagan (and I Hugh Jackman too)

I always have female cats, but if I ever get a boy I'm going to call it just sounds so dignified.

My aunty also has a Chester. We had a Felica once and also a little kitten called 'storm' because he caused such a fuss (my uncle wouldn't let my aunty keep it, so we ended up with him) Poor Storm became 'tripod' though :( He went missing one day and we couldn't find him. About 3 - 4months later we were walking home from school and saw this cat in a house looked just like Storm. We ran home and told mum and then went to this house to see if it was. Turns out Storm had slept up the car wheel recess and when dad went to work he didn't know Storm was there. This elderly couple found and took him to the vets but he lost a leg, hence the new name 'tripod'. We still sometimes see him sitting in that house window

Other cat names we have had are 'Lucy, Cassie, Charli, tiger and grey puss'

Good luck and have fun with your new kitten!

My boy's name is Thomas-- since we got him as a rescue, it was better than "Bubbles" and we started calling him Tomcat, and it just stuck If he's bad- then he's Thomas James-- it slipped out that way one day!

What does the kitty look like? I'm more for naming cats human names. Our three cats are called Phoebe(black torti), Kacy(longhair-grey), and Toby(tuxedo)

I think "Twinky" will be too confusing, as it sounds too much like Binky. I am another one who prefers the more unusual, but human, names for aminals. I chose Hagan.

I generally head for Egyptological names for cats, or depending on their markings, or personality, will give names. My black bombay, for example, is named Osiris, after the Egyptian god of the underworld. Once you are able to post a pic, Jodie, I'll give you a name.


Wisdom is knowing what to do. Skill is how to do it. Virtue is getting it done.

That which does not kill you, isn't trying hard enough.

One of my present cats is named after a Goddess - the Aztec goddess of the night and animals and (forgive the spelling) her name is Metzley, my other cat is called Scamperwags, but we call her bamps for short for some reason. Used to be scamps, but it transformed to bamps.

Hey, there's a thought...
Thanks for all the suggestions. Ror...I thought about Diogenes...which is Greek, and calling him "Dodge" for short. I have a friend who had a cat with that name/nickname. In my case, this little guy was found with his littermates in a junker car that dh and his buddies were getting ready to "recycle" two weeks ago
This little guy came to our home, the other 4 went to his friends who will keep one and foster the other 3 for a few months for adoption through a PAAWS clinic here that offers reduced price spaying/neutering for folks that bring in strays, etc in an effort to control pet overpopulation.
Let's see if the pic thing works yet... it did it did !!!
Twinky is my mom's be truthful, I'm not a big fan of rhymie names... like Pete and RePete...
Yay, another Hugh Jackman fan! Mel.B...can you hook me up please? Or at least get a message to him for me? I'm sure you're more likely to bump into the man that I am! xoxoxo
I'm sure like Binky, his middle name will be KittyGetDown lol
