Male cat needs a name

I’ve had this cat for about 2 months now, and his previous name was [name_f]Olive[/name_f]. I’ve tried [name_f]Ollie[/name_f], [name_m]Oliver[/name_m] but not really connecting with that name. I think it’s mostly because it’s a very popular name. [name_f]My[/name_f] other cat’s name (who lives with my parents) is named [name_m]Zeus[/name_m]. The name doesn’t have to be Greek origin, and I don’t mind ‘human’ names, I just don’t think I want a super popular or trendy name.

Other names I was thinking was [name_m]Monty[/name_m], [name_f]Whiskey[/name_f], or [name_m]Gus[/name_m] (August, or any longer form of ‘Gus’). Not sure of any of these names suit him.

He’s a short haired, ‘mask and mantle’ (tabby/white) piebald cat.

Maybe [name_m]Olyn[/name_m], Talisker, [name_m]Tolliver[/name_m], [name_m]Algernon[/name_m], Omiros, Orfeas, [name_m]Theodoros[/name_m], [name_m]Nero[/name_m], [name_m]Tullius[/name_m], [name_m]Tullio[/name_m]?

I love [name_m]Monty[/name_m] for him!


I have a cat who looks like him named [name_m]Charles[/name_m]. I sometimes call him [name_m]Charlie[/name_m] and sometimes call him [name_m]Chuck[/name_m]. Maybe you could name him [name_m]Charles[/name_m] and call him [name_m]Charlie[/name_m] or [name_m]Chuck[/name_m].

[name_f]My[/name_f] ginger tabby was originally named [name_m]Eric[/name_m] the [name_m]Red[/name_m]. I really dislike the name [name_m]Eric[/name_m], but since we’re of Norwegian ancestry, settled on [name_m]Olav[/name_m] One-Ear (his ear is docked) in honor of [name_m]King[/name_m] [name_m]Olav[/name_m] One-Eye.

We call him [name_m]Ole[/name_m], although he answers to both [name_m]Ole[/name_m] and [name_m]Olav[/name_m].

You could also try [name_m]Ozzie[/name_m] instead of Ollie/Oliver/Olive, as the name sounds similar enough.

We also have a white and black-spotted kitten with a full mask whom we’ve named [name_f]Panda[/name_f].

I had a ginger tabby named Scamper. Maybe something like…

Dasher / [name_m]Dash[/name_m]

Otherwise I love [name_f]Whiskey[/name_f] and [name_m]Monty[/name_m]!
