All my cats are rescue cats. My 1st cat was so small we named her Lilbit. The second cat looked like a raccoon and a cat got together. Being a Ragdoll variety with those looks she was named Ricki. My third cat, a seal point Siamese, came to me as a senior cat and was already named Misti. My last cat came to me with one name and I renamed her. Her first name was Minni and since it held so many bad memories for her I renamed her to Prissi and have had much more success. Not realizing and quite by accident each cat was named already or received a name that consisted of a double "i" spelling. Two "i's" separated by two letters. (L-i-lb-i-t. R-i-ck-i, M-i-st-i, and as well Pr-i-ss-i (who was renamed from M-i-nn-i.) Each name fits the disposition of the cat completely. All my cats are female. So if I was to name another cat to live with us I would get a female and name her Franky.

I have a 5 year old Tuxedo cat named Simon. I got him from the Humane Society. sadly his former owners either didn't spend too much attention to him because he won't let you pick him up and hold him. Kinda sad, but when I come home, he flips to his back and waits for a belly rub.
