    BEAN

    Our resident kitten just got back from the vet yesterday morning with a very good bill of health. {Minor bacterial issue that she’s taking antibiotics for~} The vet is very sure of her potential longevity and applauds us on her health and wellbeing, so it’s time to name the baby!

    We’re considering a few for this sweet little lady:

    Poppy {plant}
    Allegra {music}
    Aiofe {EE-fa; Irish: beauty, also lover of Cuchulainn}
    Cait Sidhe; Sidhe for short {KITE shee; a particular type of faery cat}
    Pandora {After the Anne Rice character}

    I’ve a vote each for Aiofe and Sidhe, with a personal fondness for both Allegra and Poppy.

    Thoughts? Votes? New ideas in a similar vein? Let’s hear ’em!

    Just because I think it’s worthwhile to note… I take Poppy and Valerian oils to help me sleep sometimes when my mental condition isn’t stable enough to sleep without night terrors. This little girl is bound to be a blessing in that way, with her sweet little purrs and general cuddliness!

    I love the Irish Gaelic names; try “calling” each name as we remember that the name is needed to call your cat if heaven forbid she should get lost.

    WOW! I LOVE ALL OF THEM!! It’s going to be hard to name her with choices like that.

    My little Peso answers to his name already! He’s named after a character on the cartoon the Octonauts that my youngest granddaughter loves.

    I agree with KJ that LilBean is purrfect but I’m partial to Aiofe. Here’s my other submissions:

    1. Freya: (Norse) Goddess of beauty and love.
    2. Nadira (Arabian) Precious.
    3. Brianna (Irish) fortitude and strength.

    Good Luck

    She answers to a few of them, lol!

    So so far, that’s
    2 votes for Aiofe,
    1 for Allegra,
    1 for Poppy,
    I’ve a write-in for Lady with 2 votes, and a few for “LilBean” “Classy Bean” and assorted similar.

    “Bean” is probably going to be a nickname regardless, but as the only female in the house, I think she deserves something quite special. πŸ™‚

    I love the name Aiofe but trying to call that several times in a row is difficult.
    Gaelic names
    Ciara – dark-haired -( kee + ra”) she is a black cat
    Saoirse –(seer-sha) freedom – you gave her freedom from being a feral.
    I’m sure you will find the perfect name for Li’l Bean.

    We’re tossing Wednesday into the mix, for Wednesday Addams πŸ˜€

    And ooh I did think about Saoirse, I just wasn’t sure if it’d fit on a kitten tag πŸ™‚

    Goodness so many name choices!

    Now I do have some secret fave names (literary) for grrrl kits (the two kits that have been in my life one at a time were/are male) but they’re secret LOL.

    I like Aiofe and Gaelic names, but you might consider that kit’s name will often be mispronounced and you will be having to teach peeps how to pronounce it.

    I once read, can’t recall where, that pets more easily respond to names that end in an (EEE) sound. This site alone proved this theory wrong though.

    Good luck!

    JMO I really like Cait Sidhe & Saoirse. I’m sure what ever you choose will be perfect for her.

    Does the winner get an autographed picture of Her Highness Princess Fluffy Butt?

    I may very well be wrong (and probably am) but purrhaps if one’s suggested name is chosen one gets to be wee bean’s godpurrent. Meaning responsible for lots of pressies and in some religions “moral” education. πŸ˜‰

    Well, I’m out on the moral education. Hedonism doesn’t provide the necessary morals for a wee kit to venture forth in the world.

    Yeah, I’m with you there PG. I have my own ideas about “world view” and will doubtless have to sadly withdraw my candidacy. πŸ˜‰

    As evidence, I named my kit after a totally amoral character. And if grrrl kits ever come into my life, I’d like to name them “Suky Tawdry” and/or “Jenny Diver” from srsly amoral work (crime pays and very well) – John Gay’s “Beggar’s Opera.” Which was later adapted by Brecht/Weil into “Threepenny Opera” with “Mack the Knife” and all that. πŸ™‚

    Even though I would have to kindly decline the opurrtunity to be godpurrent (see explanation above), I’ll throw one more into the hat.

    If you like “Addams Family”, how about “Tish” which is Gomez’ nickname for Morticia?

    Loved the original series, with Carolyn Jones/John Astin. Not the film version, although Christina Ricci was purrfect as Wednesday. A grrrl I can relate to hehehe! πŸ˜‰

    I’m pretty fond of a lot of these names… really want to get a shorter “short list” and see which one suits her when her personality starts coming in, lol~

    We were thinking that if we go with Morticia it’d be either Tia or Tish, yes. πŸ™‚
