Help DearSugar Name New Kittens!

How adoro are these two?! DearSugar's mom just added the lil preciouses to her family — the aqua-eyed Tonkinese made the trip up from Fresno and are now settling in nicely at their new home. The duo arrived yesterday but there's one big problem . . . or two, rather. They're so adorable that she can't decide what to name them!

To make it easier for myself, I'm gonna creatively refer to these babies as "one" and "two. " The feisty kit on the right ("one") is trying to claim her throne as queen of the household and prances around like she owns the place. But I think soon "two" (on the left) may stage an attack — this cat may be smaller and more timid, but she has a big, bold voice and is already meowing up a storm. So, as classy as my temporary names are, Dear's mom wants something a little more fitting for their beauty. Can you help out? If you've got name ideas, leave them in your comments below. I'll keep you posted on the naming process!

this is so old now that I doubt anyone is even reading it but I have another update on the names of our 2 babies! The Itty Bitty one is still and always going to be Coco. The bigger of the two who we thought we'd call Feisty has been changed. She is feisty but she's also the sweetest and most loving cat we've ever had so my husband decided that she's very regal and therefore should be called Czarina, which we've shortened to Czara! I think they're adorable names and really fit them! Hope you all approve!

I wanted you all to know that we've picked the names for our kitties. Thanks to everyone for your input...we really appreciated it. The little one is Coco...yes, we switched! And the bigger one is named Feisty because she really is a feisty animal!! The names seem to fit them quite well! And a special thanks to petsugar for putting them up on this site!

well since Tonkinese originate from the south pacific region name one of them "Liat" for the polynesian girl from that musical, and "Bali" for the island it took place on.

The one on the right looks spunky and active - maybe Clotilde, the brave princess of France. On the left? Hmm...Marquise.

By the way, the picture I use with my screen name is of the Grand Dame of the house, Harley, who is not a happy camper that there are two interlopers in our midst.

Okay everyone...One (the one on the right) has been given a name...drum roll...CoCo, as in fits her because she's so white (coconut, etc). Unfortunately two doesn't have a name yet other than Itty Bitty because she's so small. Dear wants to name her Ellie...I prefer Ella but am not 100% on either. Now, will someone tell me how to make that cute little cat face on this site PLEASE!!

I think that naming them after eye colour is too obvious...but if you're going to do it, one has to be named frank....So how about Frank and Sinatra? I think Squeezethe and Charmin are more appropriate though.

When I first saw the pics I thought of Si & Am from Lady and the Tramp. I always go with names from literary classics for pets. I've already used Huck, Finn and Pip for pets. What about Daisy & Jordan from The Great Gatsby? Or Oliver & Twist... Alice & White Rabbit...?

I had sister kitties that looked like these cuties years ago and their names were Ming and Ling. They were already named when I adopted them.

The Purrfect Pair needs the puurrrfect buddy-duo or sister names! (Some of these boy-names can be girl names, too): - Fred(die) and Ginger (Astaire & Rogers) - Lucy and Ethel or even Freddie and Ethel (I Love Lucy) - Alice and Trixie (The Honeymooners) - Ginger and Marianne (Gilligan's Island) - Judy and Mickey (Garland & Rooney) - Mickey and Minnie (The Mouses -- ironic!) - Betty and Veronica (Josie and the Pussycats) - Jan and Marsha (there's room for a "Cyndy" too...) - Paris and Nicky (Hilton Sisters) - Kylie and Danii (Minogue Sisters) - Venus and Serena (Williams Sister, tennis!) - Joely and Natasha (Richardson Sisters) - Charlotte and Emily (Bronte Sisters) - Eva and Zsa Zsa (Gabor Sisters, dahlink!)

I loved the comment for Aretha and Tina. Precious gems, anyone? Opal and Aquamarine? Topaz, Sapphire (the sassier)? All stones that come in blue.

Sorry about that typo: "They give you ideas FOR names" not "their names".

They're gorgeous! m This an EXTREMELY fun and useful site! They give you ideas for their names :-) I'm usually excellent with naming, but I would have to personally know the cats before I named them. Luna sounds beautiful, though, and these kitties remind me of the stars...maybe something celestial?
