Name for Sphynx Cat

Hi everyone! First post on the Nameberry forums, woo. I’m going to be welcoming a bald little wrinkly baby in the coming months, and I’m looking for name ideas! Granted, I already have quite the lengthy list of considerations, but I’m going crazy with the brainstorming so that hopefully, when I acquire the baby, the right name will jump out at me.

I’m looking for both male and female names (haven’t decided on one yet), and unisex names are always welcome too, of course. As for the vibes - my list ranges from some more serious, “sophisticated” sounding names to just plain silly, so anything is welcome! However, here are some of my favorites so far (in no particular order):

For boys: Bram, Grimm, Mika, Gilligan, Calcifer, Pip, Toast, Bonsai, Gucci, and Tobias (Tobi)
For girls: Tally, Cersei, Bagel, Jinx, Teagan, Nyxi, Ophelia, Tziporah, Merci, and Kimi

Any insight or ideas would be much appreciated! :slight_smile: Edit: my ONLY requests - no super common names (Bella, Luna, Max, etc.) I work at a pet boarding facility so I see these names CONSTANTLY and really don’t want to repeat them LOL.

One could always be dreadfully unoriginal and just go for Sphinx! [name_u]Or[/name_u] Baldric/Baldwin/etc. Because it’s a bald cat.

Otherwise, Ancient Egyptian names might be fitting:

Hatshepsut (Hattie)
Hetepheres (Hettie, Fairy)
Meritites (Merry)
Narmer (means, appropriately, “fierce catfish”)

[name_u]Or[/name_u] names from Egyptian mythology:

Bastet (goddess of cats!)
Sekhmet (goddess depicted with a lioness’ head)


I like the Egyptian theme!

[name_u]Cleo[/name_u] / [name_f]Cleopatra[/name_f]
[name_m]Ramesses[/name_m] (sp?)
