Names for large litter of ginger kittens

We are fostering a pregnant cat called [name_f]Goldie[/name_f] through our local animal rescue volunteer branch (it is [name_f]Spring[/name_f] in Australia and most definitely kitten season). She is a beautiful light ginger domestic short hair which must be how she obtained her name.

The rescue has asked us to name the kittens in a theme OR starting with the same letter.

She gave birth to 11 ginger kittens. I didn’t know this could happen as our previously fostered cats had 5 or 6 kittens! They are all ginger (I’m assuming Dad was ginger too). We have 9 surviving kittens currently. We will wait a while before naming them but want to start thinking through options. We don’t know the sexes yet.

I would appreciate suggestions on themes to name a large litter of ginger kittens. Thanks in advance.

Great ideas. Thank you. I’ve previously had a [name_u]Harry[/name_u] [name_m]Potter[/name_m] themed litter so may skip the Weasleys.

i think i’ll stop here haha

also, i’ve grown up with cats & they have had many kittens but never 11! never thought that was possible

Maybe this is too literal, but taking their colour as the theme, you could have names like…
[name_u]Ember[/name_u] / [name_f]Emberlyn[/name_f]
[name_m]Foxton[/name_m], [name_u]Foxglove[/name_u], Vixen

Some themes within themes here - yellow and orange gemstones, names meaning fire (Aidan, Fiametta)


Food themed: Orzo, [name_u]Lemon[/name_u], Samosa, [name_m]Kale[/name_m], Cheddar, Ziti, Waffles, Soda, [name_f]Muffin[/name_f], [name_u]Bean[/name_u], [name_f]Sushi[/name_f], etc

[name_u]Ocean[/name_u] themed: [name_u]Navy[/name_u], Tidal, [name_m]Anchor[/name_m], [name_u]Sailor[/name_u], [name_f]Marine[/name_f], [name_u]Cove[/name_u], [name_f]Aqua[/name_f], [name_u]Blue[/name_u], [name_f]Mariana[/name_f], Arctic, [name_m]Crew[/name_m], etc

Spice themed: [name_u]Clove[/name_u], Zatar, [name_u]Dill[/name_u], [name_f]Rosemary[/name_f], Chive, [name_f]Paprika[/name_f], [name_f]Saffron[/name_f], Cumin, [name_u]Pepper[/name_u], etc

I didn’t either. I’ve heard of special breeds having larger litters but I thought this girl, who is small and young, would have a small to average sized litter. We have 9 surviving kittens. Previous cats we’ve fostered have had 5-6 kittens. This is why I need help with naming this time around!

Thanks for your suggestions!

I was wondering about spices! Thanks so much.

I think this is a good idea

Instantly clicked on this to add a spice theme alas it has been mentioned but that maybe biased as I always thought if I got a [name_f]Ginger[/name_f] cat I want to name it [name_u]Curry[/name_u] or Tumeric :sweat_smile:

I like the ideas of gemstones and Elements too.
