And Now, We Vote…

Here are the names submitted. If you don’t see yours, alas, it was a reference to something that would have been unavailable to the denizens of 1874. I do try and keep some semblance of validity to my timeline, even though there may be a few tweaks. Pop culture references from future centuries…little too far out there. 😦


So we can remember whose name we are voting on:



Possible Names:

  1. Bitsy
  2. Pearl
  3. Misty
  4. Sandrine
  5. Elizabeth I
  6. Nonpariel
  7. Tabitha (suggested twice!)
  8. Felicia
  9. Ida
  10. Miss
  11. Phoebe
  12. Maisee
  13. Pixie
  14. Heart-Thief
  15. Mistinguette
  16. Snow
  17. Selene
  18. Trinity
  19. Muse
  20. Princess Taffeta
  21. Imogen

Number in comment to vote…


I must say, I am very pleased with the number and variety of names we have to choose from. Thanks to ALL who ventured suggestions. I will speak to Priss and see if we can come up with a proper thank you. 😉

I will leave the voting open until the end of the month. Remember, the person whose name is chosen for a particular kitten will receive a prize I am hoping they will be as excited by as I am, and their name in the acknowledgments of the book as well as it being the name of the kitten in future volumes.

Oh! And Jo will be appears in a new story “It’s…Complicated” in the Lightships and Sabers anthology from Wolfsinger Publications. 🙂
