Me and my girlfriend are adopting a cat this week! We're excited. It's a male black cat with a tuft of white on his chest. Here's a pic:

"Hi. I'm a cat."

We're in the naming phase and we're a little indecisive. There are names we like but there isn't one that really pops out for both of us. Thus, we come to you hat in hand. Here are the names we like so far - feel free to vote on which one you like the best. We're trying to find a good sinister or gothic name, but there are a few light-hearted ones we like too.

Thoughts?

I liked Harvey, but voted for Vladimir because my cat's named Beckett and Vladimir is a Sam Beckett character.

I vote Harvey because I love the movie.

But I kinda want you to name him "Cat-thulu" because of your tattoo.

It's funny you mention that, I actually suggested it :lol: Unfortunately the other half nixed the idea :(

He looks like a Kraven.

And a Vladmir a close second but I prefer Harvey.

I voted for the last option. Because that would be a fucking AWESOME name for a cat.

However, that could be a mouthful, so I'll go with Harvey as a backup.

i said lucien b/c it's a pretty cool name. i've had cats w/ kittens and been able to name lots of kitties, usually based on their personalities:

boo
mouth (i've used this one twice, so appropriate both times)
swatch
snit
thunk
scatter
bib (a very drooly kitty)
butter

that's a lot of weird kitty names. i also named a dog "pickles"...

Bo Diddley, so whenever you call him you can say "Hey Bo Diddley!"

Vladmir - because you can call him Vlad the Impaler for short.

I see you have Harvey, but you may want to consider Henry... as in Dr. Henry Killinger, you silly billy.

Oh that would be great. Unfortunately my girlfriend nixed the blues names too - however, if we get a dog further down the road in life, blues names are totally fair game, and Bo Diddley is at the top of that list.

I voted Harvey because I like the movie AND because he just looks like a Harvey. Distinguished, yet approachable.

Looks like my cat Jinx when he was a kitten in 2006.http://i456.photobucket.com/albums/qq290/rbg30/Picture191.jpg
And here he is now http://i456.photobucket.com/albums/qq290/rbg30/DSCI1208.jpg

I vote Kraven or even Lovecraft. Any way good luck with the name.

Aw! Yeah that first pic looks a lot like this one we're adopting. That's probably what our cat will turn out to be. We currently have another black cat as well, named Zoey.

She's nine. We figured she needed a plaything so she doesn't get too lonely. We're going to have two identical black cats in a couple years :) Which I'm looking forward to.

A friend of mine once named a cat "Yusuf Islam." I thought that was clever.

Midnighter. Someday I'm going to get a black cat and a white cat and name them Apollo and Midnighter.


I also want to get a yellow tabby that I will name either The Cheat or Spot.
