I am adopting a new kitten this week. She is 5 months old and completely black, except for a tiny snip of white on her nose. Her old owner HATED her, called her 'the devil in a catsuit' because she was so naughty.

I would like to give her a really, really cool name...but can think of nothing. The last cat that I named ended up being called Little Gray...because he is both little and gray. See my problem?

Any suggestions, ideas, thoughts? The winner gets a...well...nothing. Maybe a couple of rep points and a great big THANK YOU on this thread. Deal? Thanks, guys.

Think of dark characters from books or movies. Maybe call the kitty Darth Vader (or Darth Feline or something.)

If you have a dark sense of humor, he might be named "Crispy" or "Well-Done"

Button!

Just kidding. That was the name of my troublesome black cat.

I'd vote for the following:

Medea
Neko
Breakfast (or Lunch or Dinner, makes kids giggle when you tell them the name, and makes grown ups get that look of shock --- like they do when they learn my pet fish's name is Sushi)
Coaltar
Coalheart
Inkheart (Good book series, by the way.)
Nutella (Just because.)
Orlando Bloom (Is this a poll? I got lost.)

I had two black cats in my lifetime. The first was named VELVET and the second was named COSMO SHIVA. They were both great cats, so I have a lot of good memories behind those names.

Tyson Crispy is the name of my MC's friend and mentor. :D He grew up on Holly farms, and then went to Purdue.

He's the one on the cover with the baster-leg combo, a tribute to Planet Terror.

Okay, just called the girls in here, and here are the leading contenders:

Nefferkitty- they loved it!
Pandora
Crispy- my fave so far
Beelzebub- but not if we are trying to give her a fresh start
Expresso
Sparta- the oldest keeps holding up Little Gray and yelling 'we are Sparta!' I don't get it, didn't see the movie.

Thanks, guys, keep 'em coming...lots of good stuff, here, knew you wouldn't let me down!

Kitty Pryde :D
or Shadowcat even :D :D
I had found a stray cat, and named her Anathema (after Anathema Device, a character from Good Omens by Pratchett/Gaiman), and I gave her to the neighbors. When they realized what that meant, they named her Miss Kitty. But anyways, Anathema is a great name for a naughty kitty. Says me.

See, I'd be tempted to name based on the smudge of white. Like Dab or Domino or something.

I also like multi-word names (could be spelled as one word though), for example:

By a Nose
Paint it Black

I doubt you're cat will ever meet
my friends cat named:

How about Snippet? (after the snip of white on her nose)

I think that is a perfect name :)

I like Dante.

Please, please don't use Midnight. When I was 10 I got a black cat and named him Midnight and regretted it ever since. It doesn't lend itself to calling out AT ALL. I mean, picture me leaning out the door at night yelling, "Hear Midnight! Hear Midnight!" No. He promptly became simply "Kitty."

The first thing that came to my mind, though, was Behemoth. It's the name of the enormous black devil cat in Master & Margarita (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Master_and_margarita#Major_characters_in_The_Maste r_and_Margarita). Maybe too obscure? :)

Hmm, I think Balrog might be what the question was going for. And the spelling would actually be Uruk Hai, but Uruki works as a made-up name. :)

Whereas the norm for what mouthful you usually spew would be...?

Okay, guys. I think the girls have settled on a name. Not surprisingly, it is one that no one came up with. Meaning lots of wasted effort on everyone's behalf, of course, but then, they're kids, ya know? What did you expect?

Drumroll, please.....the new kitty's name is:


Ninja kitty!

Eh. They are very pleased with themselves, anyway, and I don't think it's bad.

Everybody, thanks for participating, and don't forget your giftbags as you exit the room.

I'd go with "Miss Pooky Pants"

If she's going to be evil anyway, might as well give her something to focus her rage on.

LOL. You've gotten so many replies already. I caution you, though--whatever you name this cat IT WILL BECOME.

I had a friend who named their cat Rambo and guess how it behaved in their little two-room apartment? They had to carry a squirt bottle with them everywhere they went because it was sooooo aggressive. it would attack for no good reason, with claws, fangs bared, ready for blood.

Another cat I adopted was named Black Sabbath. She was never quite right in the head. She was like a cat possessed with an evil spirit, I swear, and we were never able to tame her, to even pet her. She peed everywhere, too.

When I was a kid, we had a kitten--the smallest runt of the litter. I have a thing for runts, I guess, so I took a liking to this little thing and since I was reading Edgar Allan Poe at the time, I named him Edgar. He was also NQR (Not Quite Right)--from day-one. He would fight off all his larger siblings from the food dish, including the adult cats, and when we gave him away to a friend the only way they found to "play" with him was to take him with them into the shower and/or throw him up against the walls. It seemed to be the only thing he enjoyed.

Another friend had a cat named "Caprice"--for capricious. You can guess what that cat's personality was like.

My recommendation:

Sweetie pie
Baby
Fluffy
Etc.:D
