I'm the most indecisive person and my list of potential names is getting longer not shorter!
I want a shortish easy name for a male kitten.
So far I have joey, Oscar, Sam, jasper, Leo, Archie, Alfie

I'll post a pic of him so you can see what you think suits the best, he is a tabby/stripey British shorthair cross.

Or please feel free to share any other names you think of smile

Who's your favourite male singer? Call him that.

He looks absolutely lovely smile

OMG he is beautiful. I am totally in love and so jealous. envy
Sorry, that doesn't help with names. Out of the ones you have chosen, I think he's an Archie or an Alfie.

He looks like a Boris to me.

Thanks, with male singers, the only ones I can think of I'm not sure they make very good cat names, Michael, Nate, Ed, Elton, Usher...

I think out of Alfie and Archie I slightly prefer Alfie
Boris reminds me of Boris Johnson grin

Oscar I think. My cat belongs to the neighbour, but when he hangs our here I call him:

Mr fish

He is obviously an Alfie. I thought that before I saw the names on your list. Cute!!

If you don't have kids then do not name the kitten anything you like for potential / future kids.

I have had to veto a name I love as we named our kitty this.

He is a beauty, I vote for Dave. Dave the cat is so cool.

I've always wanted to call a cat Sebastian. Our cats are girls so couldn't use it. He is a beautiful cat so Sebastian would be appropriate.

(Wonders if she can persuade DH that a third cat won't turn us into mad cat people.)

Monty (or Montague when hes naughty)

Looks like hes got an 'M' on the markings on his face.

Hes gorgeous!

Purpleknickers Sat 22-Nov-14 09:15:26

Ooooo he's gorgeous and I'm jealous envy

Alfie from your list or perhaps Milo

MairzyDoats Sat 22-Nov-14 09:18:18

Elvis. Done.

I like Jasper, but then I did have a kitten named that when I was six. He finally died when I was 24. Lovely cat he was!

Help1234 Sat 22-Nov-14 09:20:19

Thanks for all the ideas, now I think I'm toying between Oscar, Alfie, Simon, Nate, Jasper... (I should point out this pic may be him or his sister, I haven't picked him up yet as he is still young but he looks similar to this pic)

Help1234 Sat 22-Nov-14 09:22:04

They have said they will start using his name if I can think of one so he gets used to it smile

slanleat Sat 22-Nov-14 09:22:42

I really like Alfie from your list. Like Milo from others suggestions.

A guy in work named his cat Alan which I loved for a cat name.

One of my cats only answers to Cat....
