What to Name the Cat

Okay, that's it. I've been trying to come up with a name for our latest foster kitty. None of them are good enough. He's a young adult, flame point, Himalayan. I've never had a cat like this EVER---Not in over 10 years of doing cat rescue and certainly never have we had a purebred cat in Kitten Associates.

We've come up with a list of names. The one we use now, just to call him SOMETHING is…FLUFF DADDY. I like it as a nickname, but his "forever" name?

All seriously chosen, thoughtful, imaginative, clever, funny names considered. Thank you for your help!

and Cashmere are my 2 favorites.  He is such a gorgeous boy!


How about Zack? He looks like a Zack. Or Maxim?

With eyes like that... how about Frank... for Frank Sinatra "Old Blue Eyes"?

All the names are quite unique - like he is - but my favorite is Rhed Buttler.

like Snuffy from Sesame Street. =)

I really like Fluff Daddy.

If you want a good "regal" name how about Sir Lancelot?

I say keep him as Fluff Daddy.  If ever there were a kitty worthy of the name, he's it!

I say let him keep the name Fluff Daddy.  If there were ever a kitty worthy of the name, it's him!

Falco, from The Never-ending Story.

With such big blue eyes he has, I would be tempted to seriously consider Sinatra.  You said he has a great personality and was a charmer!

Fuzzy Britches.

With those beautiful blue eyes what about 


Newman after Paul Newman or Sinatra

I first thought Rhett Butler would be cute but when I saw the i saw the Hat I thought of Humphrey Bogart in Casa Blanca

I think that since he is a flamepoint, the name HR Fluff-n-stuff is great.

     These a a few names I came up with for your Foster Cat

           Puffy  or Sir Puffinton , Mr. Puffy ,  Mr. Puffpuff , Dude


                         Good Luck naming him !!

Hrmmm   how about Mr. Darby or Watson :)

Mr. Fluffington would work too....and it goes with his nickname :)  ..ooorrr Paddington :)  He just looks so proper, LOL and FLLUUUFFYYY



I love the name Paddington!  He looks like a Paddington!!

Well, seeing how his face reminds me of Wilford Brimley I vote to name him Brimley. :-)

Personally I think Fluff Daddy fits him perfectly!!

Jolyon \j(o)-lyon, jol-yon\ is a male given name, a variant of Julian, with roots as a Medieval spelling. Its meaning is often taken to be "youthful" or "soft haired".

I think he looks like a Zeus. He for sure is a cat God!

His name should be Frankie, after Ol' Blue Eyes himself, Frank Sinatra. A little rough around the edges but makes such beautiful music!

Look at those blue eyes - he should be named Frankie, after Ol' Blue Eyes himself, Frank Sinatra!

Cashmere!  I hear strains of Led Zeppelin playing....

For some reason Stuart just came into my head! LOL

For some reason, Stuart just popped into my head!

My vote goes to Jampa Tashi because of his Himalayan origins and the wonderful meaning of the names.

Fluffy or Butters.  He is beautiful.

Mufasa, Humphrey, griffon, Percy, Auggie(Augustus), Figaro, Higgins?

I think he looks like a Fluff Daddy.  Not many cats could carry a name like that but I think he totally rocks it.

He looks like a muppet haha so maybe name him Muppet or Hensen

I love Yum Yum. Or Samson- in honor of the haircut and the new life he'll have as his hair grows back. 

I also like Maneki-Neko, he seems very lucky. 

Or Fluffy Bottomsworth. 

What about Kashmir instead of Cashmere?  More exotic, less frou-fou.  Please don't name him a silly name. He has more dignity than that.  Also, the name Aden means "flame." What about Beau, which means flame in another way (my boyfriend, my flame....)? 

Leo. CCK

Cotton Candy King!

Remington Steel, Remy for short :)

I like Fluff - someone suggested Fluffington - I like that.  You could call Him Prince Fluffington since he's all pure bred and so on.  I like Kashmir too.

I have a red tabby named Flame, that sprung to mind since he's a flame point.   My dearly departed little black Persian was supposed to be Coal, but he never went by anything but Plush.

How about Furgus?

Chenrezig - The earthly manifestation of the self born, eternal Buddha. According to legend, Chenrezig made a a vow that he would not rest until he had liberated all the beings in all the realms of suffering. After working diligently at this task for a very long time, he looked out and  realized the immense number of miserable beings yet to be saved. Seeing this, he became despondent and his head split into thousands of pieces. Amitabha Buddha put the pieces back together. Whenever we are compassionate, or feel love for anyone, or for an animal or some part of the natural world, we experience a taste of our own natural connection with Chenrezig.

Learning about the nature of compassion, and learning about Chenrezig, repeating his mantra Om Mani Padme Hum and imagining that we would like to be like Chenrezig, pretending that we really are just like Chenrezig, we actually can become aware of increasing compassion in our lives, and ultimately, the lamas tell us, awaken as completely wise and compassionate buddhas.

So how about these three nominations for Fluff Daddy?

Chenrezig - the compassionate liberator of suffering beings

Om Mani Padme Hum - his mantra

Kuan-yin as he is known in China

"Griffin"  (Some have suggested that the word griffin is cognate with Cherub) or "Cupid"

How about Mortimore or Morty for short?

How about Kimba (the white lion). He looks rather like a lion don't you think?

Well the first thing I noticed about your foster kitty is how incredibly large his jaw is (it is a male...right?) which reminded me of Jay Leno's jaw.  Therefore I suggest naming him Leno.

Found your blog by fluke.  Great work you do!!  Kudos from Canada!

Id say 'Cash'...short for 'Mister Cashmere'.

Keep up the good work!
