So we are picking up 2 kittens this weekend from the cat rescue shelter. It’s the first time I’ve been pet shopping since I was 13, when we bought my old girl, Misty, who we had to put down 2 years ago. We had her for 15 years so this will be an emotional and exciting time for me.
The shelter has put two black boys and a grey girl on hold for us to go and look at on Saturday. We aren’t sure how old the grey girl is, yet, but the younger the better. The two black boys are brothers and they’re 12 weeks old and have already bonded. If the grey girl is in her teens we probably won’t take her, so I have my fingers crossed that she’s still little. We really want a boy and a girl, if we can.
My Fiance has basically decided on what to name the boy (Yugi). We are fans of all sorts of things, anime being among them. In running with this theme, I thought we should probably give the girl a Japanese name, too, if we end up taking her, but I also really like “Nigella”, after my favourite celebrity cook. Female Japanese names that I’ve narrowed down to my favourites are:
What do you think?! Let me know in your comments and take the poll! Thanks!

I’d call her Momo after the flying lemur from Avatar: The Last Airbender. It’s a male character so would work if you get the boy instead!

Awww our 2 were black, brothers and 12 weeks!!! My Fiance wanted a black kitty and I had a soft spot for another little guy who was super affectionate. But in the end I couldnt split the brothers. They love each other.
Anyway, thats not what you asked ! I like the sound of Momo the best. And then Keiko.

Cute names! I wouldn’t seperate the two brothers who have bonded. You’ll be blessed with the CUTEST thing of all, kitties cuddling 24/7.

I too love Keiko and Sora!

I like Nigella and Sora the best!

I love the name Keiko, but I consider it a human name since I have known several Keiko’s. For that reason, I think Sora is a perfect cute and short kitty name.

I try to wait until I actually see/hold the kitties before naming them. Every time I’ve gotten a new pet, I always go in thinking I KNOW what I’m going to name them, but then it changes the second they’re in my arms.
With that said, I like Momo 🙂

Thanks everyone for your responses! Like PP said, I think I’m going to wait until I actually see them until we name them. There are so many cute names that we like, I’m sure we’ll come up with something that suits them. Other contenders from pop culture are:
I will let you know after the weekend what we decided! ^_^

Pictures when you get them? My kitty is named Roxas (after Kingdom Hearts) so I would totally go with Sora (also after Kingdom Hearts)

If the brothers are already bonded would you take them both? And I like Momo for a girl kitty, it’s cute.

I wouldn’t separate the brothers if they’re already bonded.
I love Sora or Momo. I wouldn’t name anything after Cersei! Lol!
I’ve always wanted to get a pair of cats and name them Rye and Coke (However my cats ended up being named Vixen and Edith)

I’ve learned that a cats name should have the letter S in it. That they listens better to names with S.
