Weasley is a cute idea.
My roommates now all want me to name him Skittles, and another friend is insisting on Pippin, which I kind of like.
My dad wants me to name him after Dennis Hopper
picture # 3 is gorgeous, such a sweet face
I feel like I'm in a dream. But it can't be a dream because there are no boy dancers!
I really like Pippin.
My friend has a cat named Loki, which is a name I really like.
Adelina Sotnikova is the 2014 Olympic champion!
Can't suggest a name but can say "Awwwwwww".
I called my previous ginger cat "Champers". Because when he was a kitten he was a pale ginger colour.
My current black and white boy is called Joubert.
When you are up to your arse in alligators it is difficult to remember you were only meant to be draining the swamp.
Awwwww...he is adorable!!
As far as names, I agree with the poster who said that ideas for names will start flying as his personality develops.
"Weasley" is cute, but (thanks to FSU ), I always think of Kevin Reynolds when I hear that name .
"Ginger" is completely unoriginal and generic .
I like the suggestion of "Dexter" . Other names that came to my mind are Angus, Alistair (Al or Alli for short), Oliver (Ollie for short).
As a play on names, what about Orange Julius Caesar?
I've always liked the idea of naming pets after favorite (or interesting) names from Literature -- either characters or authors. One of my old roommates adopted two male kittens that were brothers. They were both adorable, but their favorite activity was scrapping with one another. She named them Mercutio and Tybalt . Fortunately, their scrapping never escalated to the level of the characters in Romeo and Juliet.
Going with the literary characters/authors theme, off the top of my head, what about:
- Mr. Darcy
- Lord Byron
- Puck (though that ass clown from The Real World may have forever ruined that name)
- Elliott (as in T.S.)
- Atticus (or maybe Finch?)
- D'Artagnan (Artie or Tag for short)
- Heathcliff (though wasn't that the name of a cartoon cat or dog?)
- Zaphod Beeblebrox (though you'd have to be a fan of The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy to want that name. The potential for nicknames is endless though - Zaphy, Beeb, B-brox, etc.)
- Sir(s) Lancelot, Gallahad, Perceval (Percy for short)
- Deckard (the Protagonist from Philip K. Dick's novel Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep?, more commonly known as Blade Runner)
Er.......sorry about the long list - I was having fun with ideas and got carried away
Must be the red hair, but as soon as I saw the pictures of your kitty I thought of Jenni Meno!!
I think 'Piglet' is a very cute name for a cat.
Awww... so cute! I have two ginger cats (Mango and Hoover)... and they basically ended up picking their own names (Mango was Captain for a couple days, and Hoover was Hal until the moment I saw him inhale a dish of kibble in 10 seconds).
If you are still pondering skate inspired names, there's always "Toepick" ... then you can call him in a Cutting Edge style voice.
Beautiful kitten, Michiruwater!
You could name him Puck. It's literary.
Adelina Sotnikova is the 2014 Olympic champion!
Puck makes me think of the Glee hottie and somehow that just doesn't work
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 My dad's an English/literature Professor. My name is Charlotte Emily after the Brontes 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."

Then he can be a Pushy cat.
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.

Chanterelle or Chantie/Chanie for short.
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 ), 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."
