Name the Kittens Contest!


1) Butterscotch for reference. He’s mine, and he’s been named!

2) Gray and white short hair with pink nose. Isn’t she sweet? So delicate. (And she looks so much like Priss!)

3) Solid black male. Such a handsome fellow.

4) Tri-color Tabby (or Calico) — and no, Jenny will not be accepted as a suggestion…

To participate in the contest, just leave a comment with your suggestions for names. Number them as above, so I will know which name is meant for which kitten. At the end of the month, I will gather the suggestions into a poll and have a vote on the final names–though I may extend the deadline if there are not enough entries. If your kitten name is chosen, you will win acknowledgment credit in the book, and a surprise fitting for the challenge. 🙂

  21. Tino says:

    2. She’s so delicate that the thing that stands out to me is her face is so triangular. I might go as simple as ‘Trinity’..found a list of triple goddesses but I don’t know her personality.. I like Selene, Artemis, Aphrodite, Muse, Luna, Minerva, Bast.. and I might even go with something else but I don’t know what she acts like.. ACTUALLY.. I think my favorite might be Muse because it sounds like ‘mews’.. get it!!??

    3. Depending on personality- Jet if he runs around, Ash if he’s a fighter or Shade if he’s a fraidy-cat.

    4. Harleen- Reminds me of a harlequin, which led me to Harley Quinn.. which led me to her real name which is less of a mouthful than Harlequin.. or Colombina which was the harlequin’s love interest.


  22. 2. Princess Taffeta

    3. Highway

    4. Tri-star

    2 Golightly as in Holly as she has Audrey Hepburn eyes!
    3 Nocturn as he’s as dark as night.
    4 Smaragda; which means emerald in Greek and her eyes are this colour.
