    Looking for a name for a male cat - white and orange. If I wanted it to go with Minerva (Prof. Minerva McGonagall), other HP names include Sirius, Hagrid, Dobby. If I also get a female (black and silver tiger) I would name her Eloise, after the children's book character. She has a dog named Weenie and a turtle named Skipperdee. Thoughts? I don't usually go with random names.
    Count your blessings!

    Re: For animal lovers

    My nephew took in a stray cat when he was little that had orange stripes. I named it "Marmalade" for orange marmalade.

    Sometimes to get ideas for cat names, I look up other names for the color the cat is. For instance, my mom wanted a name for a black cat so I looked up shades of black and gray and we settled on "Darcy" which means dark.

    Here's a link to a site with many shades of orange to consider. "Aurum" would be an interesting cat name! Shades of orange - Color Sorting

    Interesting. I didn't find a shade of orange I liked for a name, though. He was born all white and now has an orange tail and ear tips, so he's mostly white. Can anyone think of a children's book character who is a boy that would go with Eloise? I'm leaning toward her turtle, Skipperdee at this point. Lots of possibilities for nicknames - Skipper, Skip, Skippy, Dee. Keep 'em comin'!

    I like Skipper. Sticking with the Eloise books, what about Thompson after the author? Herman after Hermione in Harry Potter. Oscar or Olly after cats in a James Herriot book of short stories about cats. Misto or Pan from the Joe Grey cat mystery series by Shirley Rousseau Murphy.

    I'm not familiar with those cat books. I guess I'll keep thinking on it. Thanks for your input!

    How about Abraham de Lacy Giuseppe Casey Thomas O'Malley from The Aristocats? I have always wanted to name a cat that. (Yeah, I love that movie)

    How about naming him after your favorite Red Sox player. ;^)

    Gutmutter- my son wanted me to mention Benny (from The Boxcar Children). And, iust for the sound, I like Eragon with Eloise.
    Skipperdee sounds awfully cute, though!
