We have just gotten our new kitten. She's a lovely dark grey, brown and black tabby. very quiet and altogether fab.

we can't decide on a name. we have two dogs already -they are poppy and daisy.

my dh would prefer a name that is not a persons name for the cat. other than that the field is pretty much open....

any ideas?

Tabby ;)

Willow themes too and is entirely suited to a silver tabby cat.

Inkspellme Wed 16-Oct-13 08:46:16

the cats name has been decided on. She's called Willow. I would hsve gone with Iris or Ivy but thats democracy! smile

true about Ivy/daisy but Daisy is a cav spaniel who will come to any call whatsoever. In fact i don't think she knows her own name but thinks Poppy also refers to her. She's dizzy but nice.

With DD and DH away for a few days the cat naming is on hold but she'll be named by the weekend.

elephants Myrtle is fab!! smile

Iris is lovey and it works best with the dogs names too - Ivy / Daisy might confuse.

Thanks for all the suggestions -some great ones, and they're all much appreciated.

Ivy sounds good and so does Iris.

Our girl cat is called Faerie-Queen, but i wish we had called her Queenie.

Our NDNs have little.black cats called Ludo and Teddy, if either of those float your boat.

My cat is Rex - feel free to use if you like grin

FernieB Mon 14-Oct-13 16:48:41

Willow, Ruby, toffee, - sorry I'm a person name for animals person.

My cats are called tulip and ivy

Mogz Mon 14-Oct-13 01:48:01

Aki, means autumn in Japanese, which I think quite suits a tabby.

PuhpullPlaylow Mon 14-Oct-13 01:38:57

We have a Kezia (westie)
A Luna (Yorkie)
And our new kittens are Disney, black with slight stripes and Tinkerbell (grey stripes with patches of gold) grin

BelleOfTheBorstal Mon 14-Oct-13 01:17:57

How about Iris? Still a flower name but with a little more dignity behind, as befitting a cat?

ElephantsAndMiasmas Mon 14-Oct-13 01:03:20

Dido
Agate

Or a third plant name? Larkspur? Foxglove? Myrtle? Olive? Campion?

ElephantsAndMiasmas Mon 14-Oct-13 01:00:58

Not sure where "Y" came from!

coco was our last cat so maybe not. Penelope is the name of one of my best friends so don't think I should do that! others are food for thought thanks.
