    Help me name my Kitty

    Hi! I am adopting two kittens in a few weeks and having trouble narrowing down my list of names, and sorry this will be lengthy. Which is partially because I only know for sure one of the kittens I am adopting. I've included of the little orange male that I am for sure getting (unless he bonds with his mother, in which case the individual adopting the mother gets the little orange one, confusing I know).

    So what would you name the little orange one? What would you name one of his siblings (boy or girl could be either)? My family/friends have only given joke combo names (Oliver and Company, Debit and Credit) so looking for some outside opinions.

    Names I have considered (and continue to like):

    Boy:

    Gideon
    Simon
    Pippin
    Quentin
    Neville
    Peaches
    Edgar
    Llewelyn "Louie"

    Girl:

    Minerva "Minnie"
    Anya
    Maple
    Hazel
    Pidge
    Belle
    Plum
    Eliza

    Any other idea? I have a list of about 20 different names, plus some combos or names that could work for a boy or girl, so need some help narrowing down. I'll probably keep a few until I have the kittens and get to know them, but love talking names.

    Barry

    Linus

    Thank you both! A few of the names you've mentioned are actually on my extended list (Nigel, Pepper, Posey, Liesel, Linus)

    Arnold, Chester, and Irving are just my style for cat names as well.

    Miette is adorable as well, though not sure it will work for me now that I know I'm getting two boys (both orange).

    I'm trying to decide if Pidge or Pepper could work on a boy, it's a cat so I don't think it'll matter too much but curious if anyone has thoughts on those?

    Virgil
    Basil
    Ernest
    Magnus
    Walter
    Barnaby
    Jerome "Jem"
    Ignatius "Iggy"
    Pasco/Pascoe
    Pascal "Paz"
    Percival "Percy"
    Pierre

    I think Peaches would be simply adorable for an orange cat, male or female! We personally have a white cat who goes by Matilda, sometimes Cat-ilda, lol.
    🌼 Bell 🌼
    Mommy to four and counting

    Lily & Cora
    Hugo & Abel


    It's a BOY!
    Otto Sebastian

    A girl would have been: Opal Josephine

    Thank you everyone for your help! I ended up going with Llewelyn and Casper. Casper took quite a bit longer to figure out and I tested quite a few of the names that were suggested, so I really appreciate the help!
