Our new kitten is arriving tonight Xmas Smile. She's a late, semi-Christmas present for our DSs as our much loved cat died in the summer and they still miss him loads. She's a rescue kitten, small, fluffy and jet black. I quite fancy a witchy name but after naming 3 children my naming powers have abandoned me. Please help, fellow cat lovers of mumsnet or else I'll be forced to let the DSs name her and I really don't want to saddle the poor thing with a name like Steven Gerrard Xmas Hmm

Ooh, how exciting. My baby us now nearly 18 weeks and he is also a little black fluffy ball. My son named ours Felix and he does look like a Felix. Little witchy name you say? Hmmm... How about Zelda? I'll put on my thinking cap :)

Sparkling I was going to sound the KittenKlaxon especially for you (maybe in the manner of ThunderCats?) DH and are I are thoroughly over excited but can't decide on a name. I like Luna but he doesn't Angry. Lots of great ideas here so I'll see what he thinks. Will try and work out how to post photos technophobe

Tabitha was the name of another dearly departed cat Sad. If I'd ever had a DD then it was top of my list. She was lovely. Little nameless kitten is arriving about 8.30pm - well after the boys are asleep so DH and I get a chance to bond first selfish

Sootica was the sister of "Gobbolino the witch's cat" in the book of that name

I like Coco for a black kitten

There is a whole page of names for black cats here - Sabrina stood out for me from that list

We recently got a jet black boy kitten (he belongs to dd2) and he's been named Severus (as in Snape, from Harry Potter).

Dd2 suggests (in the same vein) Minerva (as in McGonnagall) or Hermione, or Luna.

Another list

Shadow is a nice name from that list, not sure about "Death", or "Tarmac" though!

How about Talitha, nn Tali, similar to Tabitha but not the same.

Saphire What's good about this name is that it describes the regal way a cat feels and behaves without sounding remotely human. My goldfish is called Steve because he eats like a builder. You want something that fits

How about Serafina as in His Dark Materials? She's pretty cool.

We are of the firm belief that given a few days, cats name themselves. You'll know by New Year what is an appropriate name!
