Here is our handsome new kitten. He's a 6 month old Sokoke...

He only has his breed name, so any ideas for a name originating from Kenya

He's beautiful

Never heard of that breed before

Kenyan names...the obvious comes to mind. Simba grin

Isn't he gorgeous! Very worthy of a special name. These are a few Kenyan names I have found. I really like Kito or Nema.

Habib - beloved
Hodari - strong/powerful
Ikeno - joy
Jamba - hero
Kamari - moonlight
Kiama - magic
Kito - precious jewel
Moyo - heart
Nema - born during prosperous times
Saruna - means kitten but is generally a girls name
Shani - marvelous/wonderful
Tabia - one of good character
Tamu - sweet/delightful
Tian - respect

I love Tamu from that list - suits him perfectly!

He's going to be a holy terror with small rodents.wink (From the look on that face.) I wouldn't give him a name that's too nice.

A word to the wise. Firstcat came from the days when there were so few Siamese around that they all had native names - and he was the exact opposite of his pedigree name in character. What is his breed name when translated? smile

Oh lawdy! What a beautiful creature! Can't help with a name though. <unhelpful>

I do like a lot of Sugarplum's suggestions. Especially Ikeno.

My little Devon Rex came with the name (insert breeder) Corrigan. I can only imagine they named him after Mark Corrigan from Peep Show. Which kind of fits him. I changed his name to that of a musician, in a geeky sort of band.

Thanks everyone for suggestions. The kids have gone with a variation on his pedigree name. He is a beautiful cat and settling in so well with the others.

He's stunningly beautiful. Do they grow to a large cat? smile

SokokeMum Sat 10-Dec-16 21:26:36

Medium sized, though the body is long and slender.

He's one of the most beautiful cats I've ever seen. So unique looking. smile

oh, he looks utterly beautiful.

SokokeMum Sun 11-Dec-16 20:11:17

...he also purrs like a train or four! He's so laid back and happy!

RubbishMantra Sun 11-Dec-16 21:33:09

He has a very noble look about him.

OMG OP! I haven't got any name suggestions but I did a sharp intake of breath when I saw his photo. He is absolutely beautiful.

SokokeMum Sat 24-Dec-16 20:17:22

Thank you, the photos don't do him justice....he is even more handsome in the fur!
