Cat names, not babies!

We have our old girl Agatha and have just got a kitten to keep her company, they're very happy together but we're struggling for a name. Has been several days already shock

Mildred is perfect as far as DP, DS and I are concerned but DD hates it.

So, failing Mildred I thought it'd be the perfect opportunity to use Ottilie, we all agreed on it's loveliness even though DP had vetoed it for DD but it just doesn't suit her. Is too soft for her. Grr.

So. Any ideas for a name that is just like Mildred but isn't Mildred? Nowt ending in an A though, unfortunately.

Was going to suggest Martha but it doesn't meet your not ending in an a criteria!

I think a PP's suggestion of Enid goes well with Agatha. Or Maud.

Alix or Molly.

I'll be the nob that suggests "Christie".

Thank you all! Some great names there😀

Amazingly only a couple DP and I hadn't considered or aren't the names of close family members. Didn't think we'd been that thorough Tbh.

So. We went through the lot with the DC and voted on each one. Massive palava but worth it. Got shortlist of:

Mildrid
Enid
Ingrid

DD got the final choice 'cause she'd been so upset an all of us were happy enough with any of three really. Bet you can guess what it was <sigh>

But, anyway, we're all happy now and the kitten has a name.

Thanks💐

What's the chosen name? smile
I like all the shortlisted names but would love Ingrid with Agatha!
I'm sure she's lovely whatever names your DD decided.
