Need a name

I fed a stray cat all winter and then in the spring he disappeared. He has recently returned. He is an all black short-haired cat. I originally named him Shadow but then he started meowing at me and a quiet Shadow name did not seem appropriate. He was very nervous at first but is starting to be friendly with me. He is thin and small but I see him as a little, black panther. Any ideas??

Muninn!

It's the name of one of Odin's Ravens (means 'memory'). Then get him a friend and name it Huginn.

Thanks. I will try them all and see if he responds to any of them. He never responded to Shadow.

A good name - we'll see if he likes it.

Puma is cool.

I think he is full grown but somehow I think he might like the name.

Thanks, I just learned something. I had to look up what Huginn meant. I'm not sure if cats like to be named after birds but since Odin fears they won't return it is appropriate. I worry when I don't see him.

I like the name but I'm curious as to why you suggested it.

A lady I work with took in a baby black stray. She thought it was a girl and named her Lucy. Well as it happens, ( more often than not ) she is a he. So she named it Jasper. I think it's perfect for a black cat.
Will he be an indoor cat now?
