I got a new kitten yesterday. It was an orphan that my boyfriend found in his backyard. It's black and it's about 3-4 weeks old, so it's eyes are still blue and I think it's a boy kitty. It's still difficult to tell with it being so young.
My problem is that I'm having a terrible time trying to think of names for it. Maybe I'm just to tired to think of anything from the 2 hour bottle-feeding schedule the kitten has to be on right now. Anyone have any ideas?


(Oops. Maybe I should've posted this in the "General Discusions" forum. Sorry. :? :( )

I just moved the topic for you, Luna :)

Well I remember how difficult thinking of a name for my little cat was. I ended up searching some name databases and try to find a name that sounded good.
In the end it took me about three or four days to find the "perfect" name, so don't worry. I named my cat "Kira" and this name suits her perfectly.

I think "nero" would be fine because it's a black cat and "nero" means black. My sister got a cat named "nero" as well. Additionally she also got a "ceasar" to go along with him ;)

Nero? After the disc-burning software?

As far as names go, it'll become easier to name you kitten as you see its personality develop.

I was thinking of the name "Shadow."

Actually, the burning software was named after a roman emperor "Nero" who was said to blame Christians for burning Rom(e) :rolleyes:
It's a kind of word play, Justin.
Some Christians considered him the Anti-Christ back then. So maybe the name does not fit too well... ;)

Another Idea would be to translate English words into Zulu or Swahili and pick a name then. This is very common when one is looking for a new character's name but I have no experiences if it works for cats as well...
You could give the Online Translators a try:
resonable word traslations to swahili (http://www.pride-lands.org/wbb2/thread.php?threadid=20968&hilight=swahili)

Or you could translate them into another language like Japanese, but it depends on you taste ;)

Free Japanese Online Dictionary (http://www.freedict.com/onldict/jap.html)

Still you could try out the following sites:

(With a list of Indian Names)

(Has many different names and a good search)


I hope that helps :)

Ah, too right. I don't check up on such history, gets kind of enigmatic from time to time. lol

But, you have a point.

If you're a real TLK fan, maybe a Swahili name would fit better?

I finally decided on a name. (My boyfriend wouldn't let me be indecisive anymore. :P )
I named my "baby" Weeble, after the childrens toy. I was thinking of the toy's slogan, "Weebles wobble but they don't fall down. (http://www.hasbro.com/playskool/weebles/)" because he tries to wash but his little belly is too round for that yet, and he tips over. It's comical and cute when he does that. :D

Thank you, everyone for your input. All really good ideas and suggestions. :)

Thanks. :D
I'm hoping to have some pics back soon. That's what happens when you don't have a digital camera, got to wait for the film to be developed. :P

Ah yes, I remember those toys. Though I never knew they were called "Weebles", but the name sounds nice an I bet it goes along with your cat's habbit perfectly. I can't wait to see some pictures. Young cats are so adorable :)
