[color=#000000ost_uid0]So I gave up on the room mate... I decided to get a cat instead. Cats are far less annoying than room mates. They don`t pay rent, though, but nevermind,

But how should I name it? I asked my friends - one suggested Ricardo, the other Belzebub. They`re not very useful.

Anyone useful on this Forum? [/colorost_uid0]

[color=#000000ost_uid0]Find a good Klingon or Bajoran name. Depending on the temper of the Cat. [/colorost_uid0]

[color=#000000ost_uid0]I believe the rule with cats is to name it whatever you want, since it won't come when you call anyway :smile:[/colorost_uid0]

[color=#000000ost_uid0]What ever you do, don't name it Zebu :O :lol:


Like NAH said, no matter what you name it it's not going to come when you call. I usualy find that if you wait a whild animals will name them selves. It will do something or will make you think of something, and you'll have your name.

and if that doesn't work, take Celeste's advice [/colorost_uid0]

[color=#000000ost_uid0]I was about to suggest Delenn, but I figure it's a tomcat, no? Name it John. It's a good solid name for a creature with nine lives

I'm kidding. I say give it a good Elvish name. But only because I have a fetish for Elvish names. Harrumph. Katy Jane has good ideas, though: you might want to listen to her.[/colorost_uid0]

[color=#000000ost_uid0]My cat comes when you call her, but only if you call her Food.

What colour is the cat? If it's grey, you can call it Mithcharoth (grey-jaw).[/colorost_uid0]

[color=#000000ost_uid0]Not me, but that's never stopped me before.

The obvious name is, of course, "Spot."

Um, just before I go trawling for ideas, what kind of name do you have in mind? Noble? Humorous? Friendly? Trek-y? And, male or female?[/colorost_uid0]

[color=#000000ost_uid0]I'd pick something [iost_uid0]Dune[/iost_uid0]-ish, like Thufir, Guerney, Shaddam or Hasimir. But then I'm a nerd.[/colorost_uid0]

[color=#000000ost_uid0]Well, he was a right scheming sod, so it's fitting for a cat really. I wouldn't mention the assassin part though, you might give kitty some ideas...[/colorost_uid0]

I haven`t decided - any name would do, actually...

I`m also done asking my friends - one of them suggested Glorious Imperial Cat of Romulus.

[quoteost_uid0]What colour is the cat? Â If it's grey, you can call it Mithcharoth (grey-jaw). [/quoteost_uid0]

Well, the problem is... I`m planning in advance, I don`t have a cat yet, But I`m getting it tomorrow, or Thursday definitely! I`ll try to get a black and white cat... or an orange cat... What name do you think fits that? [/colorost_uid0]

Black and white: Oreo.

Orange: Ginger, although that's a bit obvious.

My knowledge of Elven has suddely deserted me, and my copy of The Silmarillion (with dictionary) is back in Kelowna, and I'm too lazy to find one online.[/colorost_uid0]

[color=#000000ost_uid0]The cat arrives on Tuesday. I suspect she`s from Enterprise B...

(hm, this is probably the first time I`ve ever written the words "Enterprise B")

Anyway, it`s a female, completely white cat. What would be a good name for something like that?

(do not say Snow White) [/colorost_uid0]

[color=#000000ost_uid0]Just some random thoughts...

* Pearl
* Annika
* Merlot (like the wine)
* Trinity (or just "Trin")
* Scratch
* Slink
* Freud (as in Sigmond)
* Sansa (or just about any nice name from Song of Ice and Fire - I'm a big fan... )
* Snowball

I might also suggest that all female members of this forum have rather nice names; your cat may consider adopting any one of them.[/colorost_uid0]
