    Puck makes me think of the Glee hottie and somehow that just doesn't work :lol:

    I have no idea why the Humane Society thought he was undersocialized. He's everywhere and loves people and isn't even slightly shy. We cut him off in my room for yesterday and last night but I think we might open up more of the apartment sooner... he wants to get out!

    Cyn's list is awesome but we've used half of those in the past :lol: My dad's an English/literature Professor. My name is Charlotte Emily after the Brontes :lol: My sister had a particularly adorable little feisty puppy named Atticus last summer who unfortunately was hit by a car when he was still a baby and she's still not over it :(

    I have 2 cats like yours....they're 9 and 11 and your pictures take me back to when they were that cute! I named one of my cats Oz. We play the "great and powerful Oz" game weekly and the "disregard that cat behind the curtains game." :)

    Tybalt is also known as the King of Cats. ;)

    My Peanut is a muted ginger color, but her brother was bright orange like you as yet unnamed kitteh.

    (I named her Peanut because she was so tiny next to Finley.)

    Congrats on your new kitty. :)

    I have two cats (and I know there are people who might have a fit about this, but..) named Hitler and Mussolini. Because Kitty Hitler has a black smudge under his nose, and the other one I just suggested the name to go with Hitler. My mom and dad's cat's name is Pandora and my sister's cat's name is Crazy Hazel. Our last cat before The Dictators was Pearl.

    Every cat we’ve ever had starts off with an “official” name that’s on the veterinary records, but each “found” its own name. For example, our last kitty had a given name of L.B.Kittenface, but the name we “found” was “The Poot.” It’s hard to explain, but long-time cat owners might understand. :lol:

    :rofl: I nearly fell out of my chair when I read your post.....my Ex's cat (that he had for 16 years before we married and who outlived said marriage) was named Mussolini - never in my life did I ever expect to find anyone with a cat who had the same name.

    His other cats over the years were named Theodore Roosevelt, Miles Davis, and Chakri (who was a Siamese cat).

    Our first cat was named Banshee (who earned that name by being a very, VERY vocal kitten); we also had a cat named Gonzo (for some reason, it just fit his personality), and we currently have three cats, named Luci aka BitchCat, Sharpie TC (TC short for "The Cat" so as not to be confused with FSU's SHARPIE :lol: ), and Mouschi MC (MC as she's a Maine Coon).

    Mouschi is named after the cat that lived with Anne Frank and her Family (along with the Van Daams and Mr. Dussell) in The Secret Annex -- their Mouschi belonged to Peter Van Daam). When I researched the the name, I found out that "Mouschi" is a Dutch term meaning "beloved pet, usually a cat."

    Lol! Cyn, that's funny! I guess the even weirder part is that Mussolini is a girl!

    I like the Mouschi name. Is it pronounced Mooshie or Moos-chie or some other way altogether? Maybe we'll start calling our Mussolini that as a nickname. Sometimes I just call her Moose.

    The kids tried calling her a jewel name because our other cat was Pearl. They tossed around Diamond, Amethyst, Sapphire. I thought if they were going to go that route, they should have picked Ruby, but I was already calling her Mussolini and it stuck.

    Maybe this will help. http://www.kitten-names.com/

    Personally I tend to prefer more sophisticated (or at least "normal") names for my animals and avoid the "cutesy" ones. :p

    I had a cat who was Monster at the Humane Society. I didn't like that, and called him the Beast for a while. That didn't really fit, and he ended up being Kitty Butt, poor thing. His dignity was resuced when I transferred to London and couldn't take him with me. My grandparents adopted him from me and he finally ended up with the name KB.

    When my sister got a dog, one of her sons commented "He looks like The Littlest Hobo!" So Hobo it became, often nicked Hoppity. Beauty, Kid, Bruno and Fang were names of the dogs I grew up with. Hope that helps.

    Very cute kitty! :) It's been a very long time since I had such a young one -- my most recent two came to live with me as adults.

    The first cat I had looked very much like this kitty -- and started out as "Alexander" but eventually became "Mouser" (don't ask me why:lol:). Other "ginger" cats I have known included "John Henry" (a cat you definitely didn't want to get on the bad side of), "Peaches" (a very sweet cat) and "Finn" (who was a gorgeous long hair).

    :lol: Gorgeous kitty!

    Can't help you with creative names though - our rabbit is named Fluffy. Although she sometimes gets called anything from Bunny to Rabbit to "Fat one" (in Chinese).

    I think that is a great name for the kitty.

    One thing I really like about FSU is the number of cat lovers on this forum. And everyone gets very excited about new kitties. Makes me feel good and puts a smile on my face.

    Another vote for Pipin. My brother's getting a cat when he moves to a place that allows animals--I'll be sure to show him this list. :)

    I've always wanted to name a kitten or dog Marat. Yes, I'm a tennis fan. I also seem to recall that Gorbachev's kitten was named Murat, which I also love.

    We had a Lancelot, a Nanook, and a Toulouse.
