I named my beautiful white/grey shelter kitten Romeow and boy was he handsome!
He had a saddle clot that killed him at age 6:( and I found another one who looks identical from same shelter in San Leandro Ca. I swere they are brothers. Romeow's widow Hibou the Tortie loves Martin as much as she did Romeow!
A happy forever ending. I love cats sooo much it hurts......

This is a nice list of names. I just adopted a new little tabby and I was looking for a name fro her. I finally found it just now, I'm so happy! Her name is Velma because she reminds me of Velma from Scooby Doo. I found her name at this site though, which has a lot more names:

I have 2 cats and one kitten. I have a 5 year old calico named Wiley cause I found her while small game hunting under a tree all alone she was only a couple weeks old. I have my female ginger tabby named lily my grandmother got her for me as a present, and I have my kitten Lucy whom I took because a friend of mine was swamped with kittens after the kittens mother stopped taking care of them. All of their names end in y. They are all my good little girls

I have three cats. Two siblings, Medium haired Tuxedo cats, rescued as 10 week old kittens, originally named Ritz and Tux, I renamed to Callie and Cody. Then, 10 months later, I got a 10 week old Medium haired orange tabby, also male, from a rescue, we named Chase. Chase very much lives up to his name. If he doesn't want to be picked up or held, or if you NEED to catch him for a vet appointment, you have to CHASE him. I like giving animals "people names"
