Help Name That Kitten!

cat planning slcc

This is an unusual post for me, but we are going to have fun today!  I had a long day today mainly revolved around animals.  Today, I got an early birthday gift though, my own kitten!  I’ve always have wanted a cat, and now, unexpectedly, I have a black male kitten!!  To say that I’m thrilled, excited and overjoyed is an understatement!  I’m going out of my mind!!!  I wish I could have filmed my reaction because I just went NUTS (and damn near was about to cry!)  I never, ever, expected to have a kitten anytime soon.  BUT I have a problem!  I have NO clue what to name it!  So, I’m going to do this the social media way; help me name the new kitten!  Yes, post comments, as name suggestions and I’ll pick one (if I like them!)  Some suggestions I’ve received are:

  • Midnight
  • Snowball
  • Naz-Ztallicaparkprodigybrotherstiestooakenfoldcox (from my favorite music artists: Naz, Jay-Z, Metallica, Linkin Park, The Prodigy, Chemical Brothers, Oakenfold, Tiesto, and Carl Cox!)
  • [Added] Linden, LOL, iCat, Linus, Nex Jr. from Tamara

As for the kitten, he is two months old, a he, and even has a microchip inside of him (how very new tech – the chip is so he can be tracked if he is ever lost!)  Feel free to comment below, or to check more pictures of the kitten getting comfortable!

  6. My hit was Shadoë

    How odd is that?


  7. So then, I'm thinking, wtf where did that come from. And I must be subconciously conflating black kittens and DJs…

    Negro or Negrito. (spanish for black or lil black)
    Frijolito. (little bean)

  10. @Lordfly: made me laugh, but do I want to suddenly get popup's when I call him?
    @Sophrosyne: In some weird way that's calling a cat a dog a person ^.^ I really like the name, but I'm sure the cat is going to have issues!
    @Malarwen: I called the cat "you little imp" as it slept on my back last night. That may work
    @Chelle: Yes you do! You forgot D-Jay! Or Djay-Z! Maybe I'll just call it Kov (kitty hov?)
    @Kat: But wouldn't that mean I'm calling you?!
    @Shava: Ohhhhhhh, now if I can only pronounce that!
    @Vertigo: i suddenly want to "mine" my cat to make some obsideion bars (wow joke).
    @Trinity: Negrito sounds really cool!

    Thanks everyone, keep the suggestions coming! I'll let everyone know about the name!

  11. Obsidian is fabulous! Call him Obie for short. lol

    I donno… I usually go for unusual names rather than "Midnight". I mean honestly, how many black cats are out there named Midnight. Pft

    Consider "Letatio". It is Latin for "joy". Letto would work for short I suppose. Seems appropriate given he's brought so much joy into your life!

    Or, consider my favourite: "Lemiscus". Means "ribbon". 😉

  12. TheDiva says:

    Call him Judo – then when he is bad you can say *Judo-No!* cause it sounds funneh!

  13. @TheDiva That made me laugh… hehe Judo! 😀
