All of my cats are named after TV/movie characters, and each one fits them well.
Samantha's full name is Captain Samantha Carter, after the character of the same name from Stargate: SG1. She's beautiful, smart, and sweet, yet tough, and she rules the household with an iron paw. Definitely the 'top brass' in our house!
Alice got her name from Mila Jojovich's character from the Resident Evil movies. As soon as she entered our home, she wanted to lick...everything, especially people. My husband and I instantly thought of a Licker from Resident Evil, but thats no name for a cat, lol! So she became Alice, a tough and independent girl. Her full name is Alice Turkey Giblets No...Alice - for the mentioned above, Turkey - because she lays down looking like a Thanksgiving turkey all the time, Giblets - because of the turkey position and because giblets are funny, and No - because we said "no" to her so much as a kitten we thought she might think that was her name, haha!
Jules is officially Jules Winnfield, named after Samuel L. Jackson's character from Pulp Fiction. When Jules was a kitten, he thought he was the toughest thing around...at four months old and four pounds, I remember him going total fluff-puff-hissy-spitty-'Halloween Cat' on a 100lb+ Golden Retriever at work (of course the Golden looked at him like he was nuts!). The name fit perfectly! Thankfully he's now learned that not all dogs are out to eat him, but he's still the toughest boy around, lol!
