Name for New Family Member

Name for New Family Member

We lost one of our two loved cats (Plato) before Christmas to FILV (Feline Infectious Luchemea Virus) even though he had his injection

After some tears, we decided we would get a new friend for our other female cat (Athena), so we rescued this lil guy from the RSPCA death row.

We're having a hard time deciding on a name (looked up billions!) - the closest we have is Byron.

We are not after an obvious name and NO - 'craybait' is NOT on the list :)

Any suggestions?

Yeah Mike, we nearly bought a Rag Doll, but, since I'm currently not working, it was a lot of money to shelve. The new kitten is sure a bundle of energy and mischief, but is well house trained - so far no accidents.

Loves climbing up my legs (has claws!) - not good when you're wearing shorts or light shave coat.

Ouch! 

I like Boof :) , but somehow doesn't fit ours.

Wife want's something more mythological/escorteric.

I REALLY appreciate the input guys - terrific -



Definately right there Neander .



Hades!  eeeee gads Jodes - You'll give me nightmares.





Oh, and there could be a winner there with Perseus - because it's also the name of one of the Taree battleships in Stargate / Stargate Atlantis - I'm a HUGE fan (nut) of both!



Thanks again folks! :)

Zeus

Zeus

Meaning:

Just another suggestion (Mine). He looks like he will be one that will "Rule the House"
