Help! Name for a lilac male kitten

We are finally getting a British Shorthair baby!! :scream_cat:

He’s a lilac boy and currently 5 weeks old. Coming home to his new family in about 5 weeks’ time. :purple_heart:

I have a shortlist of vintage British boys names and nicknames, but I would love to hear your name ideas for this little guy! All suggestions welcome, doesn’t have to be a British-style name, or even a human name. We’re open to novelty pet names too.

I always wanted to name a pet [name_m]Jim[/name_m] [name_f]Darling[/name_f].I don’t know why

So funny to see the names [name_m]Albie[/name_m] and [name_u]Darcy[/name_u] come up, they’re the name of family cats!

@MichelleM - Thank you! [name_u]Alfie[/name_u], [name_m]Barnaby[/name_m] and [name_u]Percy[/name_u] are already on our list so you’ve totally got our style down! I love the unexpected suggestion of [name_u]Ira[/name_u] though. So cute!

@[name_f]Estrela[/name_f] - Thanks! [name_m]Basil[/name_m] is already on our shortlist, but I love your suggestions of [name_m]Apollo[/name_m], [name_m]Major[/name_m], [name_u]Kit[/name_u], [name_m]Atlas[/name_m], [name_u]Ash[/name_u] and [name_u]Pip[/name_u]. I’ll run them past my boyfriend and see what he thinks!

@river_dweller - Thanks so much! [name_m]Barnaby[/name_m] and [name_m]Ralph[/name_m] are already on our list, but I think [name_u]Rudy[/name_u] and [name_m]Giles[/name_m] are super cute. [name_m]Will[/name_m] share with these with the boy too.

@Kittylitter - Yes! [name_u]Love[/name_u] [name_m]Walter[/name_m]! Adding it to the list.

@[name_u]Everest[/name_u] - Oh, [name_m]Seymour[/name_m] is my absolute favourite pet name but I have a friend with a British Shorthair called [name_m]Seymour[/name_m], so I couldn’t steal it. :pensive: Have added [name_m]Atlas[/name_m] to the list as per my comment above.

@Rhettagain - Cute! I hope you use it once day. I have a friend with the surname [name_f]Darling[/name_f]. Isn’t it delightful?

Too cute!

We might have to wait until we meet him to see if his personality lives up to such names! [name_m]Elvis[/name_m] and [name_m]Nelson[/name_m] are super cute too. [name_f]My[/name_f] OH is actually from a place called [name_m]Nelson[/name_m] too haha!

He looks to me like a [name_m]Rupert[/name_m], [name_u]Bernie[/name_u], or [name_m]Dominic[/name_m]. :slight_smile: Congrats on your new little lad! I’m planning on getting a cat, soon. Although my big baby of a dog is sure to be terrified of any little kitten!
