Our new kitten is arriving tonight fsmile. She's a late, semi-Christmas present for our DSs as our much loved cat died in the summer and they still miss him loads. She's a rescue kitten, small, fluffy and jet black. I quite fancy a witchy name but after naming 3 children my naming powers have abandoned me. Please help, fellow cat lovers of mumsnet or else I'll be forced to let the DSs name her and I really don't want to saddle the poor thing with a name like Steven Gerrard fhmm

We are of the firm belief that given a few days, cats name themselves. You'll know by New Year what is an appropriate name!

Our black fluffy kitten is Luna - it suits her as she's a complete lunatic! grin

Thank you so much for all your brilliant suggestions! I had planned on calling her Luna or Juno, possibly Callisto (although traditionally a boys name) but nn Callie.

However, and as accurately pointed out by moonbells, cats do tend to name themselves and she now has the supremely occult name of...... Daisy hmmblush. It does not suit her at all as she's a very, shall we say confident kitten who is not in the least bit fazed by our 3 DSs and is not averse to leaping out and savaging your ankle. That said, it seems to be her name iyswim. She is super cute and very affectionate and although tiny, already has a massive character. I promise ( Sparkling ) to try and sort a photo ASAP grin

Luna's getting a bit common now though it seems! Although DP calls her Tuna, and she answers to either!
