Names for kittens

Hi everyone, I'm looking for some ideas for names. Mittens the barn cat has, as far as I've been able to tell, four kittens. I have only seen glimpses of them, she his them very appropriately under an old tree. As far as I can see, its one black or bicolor, mom is bi, so is at least one of the possible dads. One is very white with grey, one tortie - black with orange, and one grey solid or minimally bicolor. Boy and girl names needed as I have no idea as to the sex of the kittens.

Maybe theme names? We liked to do that with litters when I worked with rescues. Like all "a" names or maybe movie characters? It sounds like you have atleast one girl with a torti, but the other names could be gender neutral until you can figure out the genders

When I take in litters of kittens I always go to the baby names website and pick out a letter like D or B or R. I will name the entire litter (sometimes I take in several different litters) so name each sibling one letter name like Brady, Bella, Brandy and Bobby. I love people names and there are so many to choose from!

A fellow foster friend uses rose bush names and another uses theme names like Disney or movie names.

I tend towards Biblical names but even then, if you are looking for unisex, there are things like Jess (Jesse / Jessie).

It seems like our shelter's foster homes like to name in groups, often after pop culture:

We've had Disney princesses (Belle, Ariel, etc)
Candy Bars (Snickers, Pay Day, Whatchamacallit, etc)
Dodge cars (Avenger, Charger, Dart, etc)
TV characters (Sheldon/Leonard, Lucy/Ricky, etc)
Seven Dwarves (Happy, Sleepy, Doc, etc)
Harry Potter characters, Stargate SG1 characters, Golden Girls...

"...she his them very appropriately under an old tree."
Is it an old oak tree? If so, maybe these 70s names might work:
