Bit of an impulse but we just collected a beautiful ginger kitten from a stables close to where we live. He's absolutely gorgeous!

Parents are feral and the stable girls have been trying to rehome the kittens. I'm only too glad to take him grin

So, please give me suggestions on a name for little mister!

Marmalade! Very cute kitten.

Christopher, I like human names on cats.

I also like human names. Slightly naff ones.

I met a ginger cat today that was called Beans, thought that was quite cute!

Otherwise Dave is always funny on a cat!!

It just fits him. Jenkins, the stable boy. I have no idea if there is a Jenkins the stable boy anywhere in literature, but my brain wants there to be.

Loving these suggestions!

Beans grin

Asterix? Boris?

Gorgeous kitten! Love ginger boys.

Or Gary. Gary suits him. I realise my names will be shunned, btw.

Better pic of his little face!

I love ALL the naff human names! Can't have Gary (bil's cat) or Dave (that's what we call the kids!!!)

Seconding Ninja, but the first name that came to mind when I saw his face was Percy.

Think about it.

Human name with outstanding literary precedent. My fave literary cat, along with jeffrey

Other famous cats,

Gobbolino, if hungry, though usually black.
Whatever Dr Johnsons very fine cat was called, a very fine cat indeed.
Marmaduke ( the iron tum, from The Rescuers)
Samson, in the vicarage cat who I think was marmalade

Other thoughts
On the marmelade theme, Dundee, Cooper, Oxford
Tiger/Tigger/ Tiggy
Tawney/ Tawny, the first if you are socialist by inclination
Auberon/ Aubrey/ Auburn
