Name ideas for 2 new kittens

We will soon be welcoming 2 new kittens into our home. The first is a dark [name_u]Smokey[/name_u] grey female with green eyes, the second is a pure white male with gold eyes. They are both long haired. The boy has a very affectionate and snuggle bug personality, the girl is playful but laid back.

We would love names tied to mythology, fantasy books or nerd fandoms. Without being too on the nose or common. Trying to stay away from super common cat names like [name_f]Luna[/name_f], [name_f]Freya[/name_f] etc.

So far girl name ideas are: [name_u]Tali[/name_u], Nynaeve, Bastila, [name_f]Nimue[/name_f], Nienna.

So far boy name ideas are: [name_m]Fenris[/name_m], [name_u]Cloud[/name_u], [name_u]Pippin[/name_u]. [name_m]Boy[/name_m] names are hard lol.

They are insanely cute! I love the idea of taking [name_u]Cloud[/name_u] one step further and naming them something like [name_u]Cirrus[/name_u] and Stratus? [name_u]Or[/name_u] maybe a stormy name for the gray kitten like Cyclone. [name_u]Or[/name_u] [name_u]Zephyr[/name_u]. [name_u]Thunder[/name_u] and [name_u]Lightning[/name_u] would also make cute paired names. But, straying away from the weather theme…

[name_u]Pippin[/name_u] is a super cute name. I think [name_m]Samwise[/name_m] would also be cute for the boy.

[name_u]Atlas[/name_u], [name_m]Apollo[/name_m], [name_u]Orion[/name_u], [name_m]Remus[/name_m], [name_m]Odin[/name_m], [name_m]Ajax[/name_m], [name_m]Cadmus[/name_m], [name_m]Lir[/name_m]

[name_f]Pandora[/name_f], [name_f]Circe[/name_f], [name_u]Nyx[/name_u], [name_u]Echo[/name_u]

I don’t think it’s mythological, but I also think the girl would make a cute [name_f]Sigrid[/name_f].


They are beyond adorable!!

All of my kitties have night sky/mythology names so I love names like that!

Some ideas that have either mythological connections or just fantasy vibes

[name_f]Ceres[/name_f] (I love the Ker-ess pronunciation)
[name_f]Hermione[/name_f] (maybe to on the nose, but I just think it’s so adorable)

[name_m]Hercules[/name_m] (our little boy kitty’s name - he is white also!)

I think my favorite pairing would be [name_m]Hercules[/name_m] and [name_f]Hermione[/name_f]. I love the matchiness, but it might be a little too much.

[name_f]My[/name_f] second favorite pairing would be [name_m]Odin[/name_m] and [name_f]Enya[/name_f]. [name_u]Love[/name_u] that they both are four letters and start with vowels - not too matchy but definitely connected!

A few other cute pairings:

[name_f]Ceres[/name_f] & [name_m]Odin[/name_m]
[name_u]Atlas[/name_u] & [name_f]Nixie[/name_f]
[name_m]Evander[/name_m] & [name_f]Brontë[/name_f]
[name_m]Odin[/name_m] & [name_u]Echo[/name_u]
[name_f]Astra[/name_f] & [name_u]Leander[/name_u]

Haha I love [name_f]Enya[/name_f]! The only problem is literally anytime I think of the name, Enya’s greatest hits start playing in my head - as much as I love her music I don’t want it in my head every waking hour lmao. [name_f]Hermione[/name_f] is actually the name of the boys mother :blush:.

[name_f]Astra[/name_f] is nice though.
