Thoughts on Floyd for a ginger tom kitten? (Yes prog rock, not boxing was the inspiration!), I haven't really met him yet so don't know what his personality will be. Any other ideas? Not a "ginger" name though. I think he will be a nervous/gentle rather than a bruiser type.

I think Floyd is a great name! Our local ginger communal cat is Barney.

Orlando the marmalade cat was always my fave book as a child.

Although I do quite like Floyd.

Floyd is a nice name.

I'm a bit rubbish at names, which is probably why my current ginger tom is called Big Ginge. It was a working title sort of name until I chose something, but then I never got around to changing it. Poor lad...

I've had lots of ginger cats (as well as lots of everything else) and I tried to name them after famous ginger people - but only managed to think of Harry and Bradley (Eastenders) and a girl called Demelza. There seems to be a shortage of famous ginger haired people, or more likely a problem with my ability to recall them.

Is he a dapper chap or a scruff? My ginger kitty is called Dandelion and is a scruff.

My ginger cat was called Greebo after Nanny Ogg’s cat in the Discworld. He was a dude.

What about Maxim?

There was another du Maurier name I always wanted for a cat but after all these years I can't bloody remember it!

I probably should have started the thread differently, but I really don't want a name that is just "ginger" like Marmalade. I want to be "ginger neutral", so he can self-ID as black/tabby/tortoiseshell if the mood takes him!

My Ginger Tom is called Marley

beachygirl Thu 13-Dec-18 21:48:24

I like Marley too. I think cat names have to end in an e sound.

Boulder and Nugget are two Ginger boys in my area. Also, Simba and Archie.

This is Barney. Nice chap, but refuses to live with anyone. Comes in ours if the weather's bad and his two favourite places are out.
