need some name help

So some of you know that I am getting a Siamese kitten sometime soon. I talked to the breeder today and she's letting me have my pick of the litter so I chose the little blue point male (at least we think he's a male! They are still pretty young!). I need some name help for my little guy. The breeder's name will be on the papers and I'm supposed to choose an oriental name...this might not be the name we call him at home...but then again it might. I have a list of a few names that I like or am thinking about. (I am choosing according to meaning as well as a pleasant sounding name). What do you think? Got any more names?

Li - means strength

Shu Fang - kind, gentle

Sunee - good thing

Shing - Victory

Abisha - God's gift

Keitaro - Blessed

Mitsu - light

Saku - remembrance of the Lord

Kalani - the Heavens

Keona - God's gracious gift

Makaio - gift of God

Gabriel - God is my strength (not for his paper name, but to call him at home...Gabriel or Gabe)

Full names: Shing Li of *Shang' Shirl - means Strength and victory.

Keona Li of Shang' Shirl - means God's gracious gift, strength

* Shang' Shirl is that cattery name

My favourite off your list is Sunee, for both the sound and the meaning!

I found some more, as well! You will have to aquire a short-list from all the suggestions you get on Cat Forum! All of these are words from Siam.

Chui Chai - the name of a Siamese dance

Kla - Brave

Komen - Precious Stone

Mai - Silk

Manop - Young Man

Nai - Mister

Ngoen - Silver

Phet - Diamond

Phitsamai - Adorable

Prija - Intelligent

SudSaming - Spirit of The Tiger

Wila - Feline

Ya Chai - Sweetheart

I particularly like the meaning of SudSaming & Wila!

Well, I'm a little obsessive about names having a special meaning

I like Keona, both for the way it sounds, and the idea it evokes

I like Kalani, Keona, and Gabriel. I love names that have biblical meanings and such.

When/if we ever have a girl we're gonna name her Shekinah Grace. Shekinah basically means Divine Presence or God's glory.
