Got obsessed DP insists on naming one of our 2 girk kittens Stark hmm

I was happy to compromise and name her Arya but he's having none of it.

AIBU to refuse??

I thought it was Stark, after the Ben Elton book - I am so out of touch. I am no help , I like both names. Get one more kitten and use both names?

What are you on about?! It's a brilliant name! grin

Why does he want to name her Stark? Is it a friend's name, or some book or movie character?

What's the other kitten's name?

Stark is a bit crap, but then so is Arya. I'd call it The Hound. T'would confuse people.

It's Game of Thrones related. I don't watch it but he bloody loves it. We agreed that we would name one kitten each but I have no idea what to call mine that would go with Stark!

No not stark! Something terrible will happen to her!

Apart from arya but I'm not really a fan of GoT.

Stark means strong in German.

Naturally if you have a Stark the other kitten should be Lannister!

Tully? Karstark?

Not Frey.

I hate matchy pet names. You should pick a name that's completely at odds with Stark like...........Agatha Del Froofroo.

I'm with EatShitDerek - I thought it was after IronMan too but then I don't want GOT so I guess that doesn't help - sorry.

StarkyTheDirewolf Thu 19-May-16 12:38:20

If I got a cat I'd call it Chairman Meow.

viviennewestood Thu 19-May-16 12:39:24

Agatha Del FrooFroo grin

This is Stark..

I have a cat called Stark! After Tony Stark though.

squoosh Thu 19-May-16 12:41:19

She does have a look of doom about her so maybe Stark is apt....

MrsMoggy Thu 19-May-16 12:42:47

Snow for the other name (Jon snow) Snow and Stark?

Gorgeous cat! I think you'll grow to like the name. Eventually you won't be able to imagine her being called anything else.

YABU you agreed he could name a kitten. The names don't need to go together.

Pet names tend to get corrupted in our house. Millicent has become Millie, Millie Moo or Millie Pig (she's a guinea pig) . What if you are the same?

Imagine calling your cat in from the garden, Stark or Starkey or Starkers grin Bet your neighbours will be confused
