These two lovely ladies will be coming to live with my brother and his wife in Berlin in a few weeks' time. At the moment, they are both called "Baby", which clearly won't do.



We think "Raspberry" and "Pi" is a bit crap. And my suggestion of "Chester" and "Molester" has also been rejected. Any ideas? Submit them below!

Tab(by) kittens? How about Control and Alt?

I've three 9 month olds all called SHIFT - as in shift off my keyboard, I'm trying to work. I'll have to get the fourth one a Pi as she has shown no interest in programming yet.

Gertrude and Phoebe, from the joke:

Once there were two sisters named Gertrude and Phoebe, who never married and had always lived together.  When they started to get old, they made a pact that whichever died first would try to tell the other what the afterlife was like.

Gertrude died first.  Phoebe was lying awake in bed one night, missing her sister, when suddenly she heard a little voice in the dark: "Phoebe... Phoebe..."  She said: "Gertrude, is that you?  Quick, tell me what it's like in the afterlife!"

Getrude said: "Well, I get up in the morning and have sex, and then I eat vegetables for a while, and then I have sex, and then I take a nap, and then I get up and eat more vegetables, and then I have sex again..."

Phoebe said: "Is that what it's like in Heaven?"  Gertrude replied: "Oh, I'm not in Heaven.  I'm a rabbit in Wisconsin."

Naming kittens is difficult, we have taken weeks before finding something that suited them.

Some are easy, Kronfeld was.  What else can you call a lost kitten found in the fuselage of a Kronfeld Drone  powered glider?

needs to be something that won't be embarrassing when they're all grown up and also something that doesn't have accidental German meaning since they're in Berlin...

Have a look here

Shakespeare and Bacon

Because when your brother comes home from work there will be a present on the carpet, or someone will have stolen food, or smashed an ornament, but he wont be able to discipline them because he wont know who did it. Was it Shakespear or was it Bacon?




Or, on similar lines, Mungojerrie And Rumpelteazer

But that might be asking for trouble

The naming of cats is a difficult thing as TS Eliot advises

http://famouspoetsandpoems.com.....oems/15121

I kinda guess that Custard and Cream might do, now let me think of slightly more girly names.

Faith and Hope  (if they get a third then Charity)

Ishtar and Usha

Calamity and Catastrophe

Ping and Pong

Athena and Enyo

1 and 2

Fluff and Lint

'Oh NO!' and 'OH NO YOU AS WELL!'

R2D2 and CP3O

Splish and Splash

Dew and Drop

Hope they have a long and fun life, they will of course be miowing with a Berlin accent !

They'd better be given names STAT! It'd be a real CATastrophe if they didn't. Perhaps you should use the kitten name CATalogue. Have you given them their mittens and pie yet?

My space scientist friend called theirs Sputnik and Telstar, which was all kinds of awesome, but also, sadly, taken now.

The other popular ones with geeks are JPEG and GIF (for whichever one is more animated) then you can call *their* kittens Pixel and Byte.

I'd go for Ada and Marie I think.

Also Discworld related, how about Ponder and Stibbons (the character in the book who builds the only computer on the Disc, which is powered by ants)?

http://wiki.lspace.org/wiki/Po.....r_Stibbons

Otherwise I wouldn't ask me. I always give silly names to my pets. Especially my fish. I have Poon (a yellow tang) and Peter (a Filefish).

Mark Twain had two Siamese cats named "Shall" and "Will" because nobody could tell them apart.
