Male or female? If it's a girl, maybe name her after a famous red-head (like Lucille Ball). If it's a male, maybe something having to do with a tiger...names are elluding me right now, but those are just some ideas.

My Mom had an orange tabby named Pumpkin when she was little. She still talks about him. Or what about famous tiger's names: Raja from Aladdin? :)

I used to have an orange tabby named "Rusty" (for obvious reasons). Always liked that name.....

I'm going to get a little orange tabby Maine Coon... his name shall be Mr. Pumpkin... and he shall be fluffy and sweet and fat... yes... yes my plump little Pumpkiny goodness... how I'll love you! *squeezy* *pet* *pet* *realizes she's been holding her bookbag* Uh? Darn those kitty fantasies! I'll just have to play with my little fluffy sweetums Halifax until I get him a couple friends.

You should name him/her Pumpkin... it's such a cute name! But in the end it's up to you. *goes back to day dreaming*

Haha -- that's an oximoron isn't it??

Anyway -- when I name cats, I try to imagine them having a say in it. If I pick a name and I can see them with an unamused look on their face saying "yes...my mom named me Fluffy...wanna make something of it?"....chances are I have picked a silly name. Think about your kitty having to tell his friends that his name is Floofypants. Think about it...would YOU want to be named Floofypants? Not likely. You'd be the kid at school getting wedgies and flushies from upperclassmen every day. Give your kitty a name that doesn't make it sound like a little pink stuffed animal with glitter all over it's head.

I was watching the animal channel today and I saw a woman who named two bear cubs after presidents -- like taking their middle name or last name. I thought that was pretty cool, provided she didn't name them Kerry or Bush! (...sorry 'bout that...)

Hi there,
my two favorite so far are "Raja" and "Cheddar". Ho about "Irish", because the cat's a redhead?
Good luck with the naming, I'm in the same boat. We are getting our kitten in about two weeks and still need to decided!

Orange tabby

What about the name Garfield? Have you ever read a book on Garfield? He had a little kitten friend come stay with him called Nermal.

15 years ago when I got my second kitten, I called him Nermal. But don't have an orange tabby.

My neighbour used to have an orange tabby and they named him Albert. If its a girl Alberta.

Let us know what you decide upon

I have an orange tabby here he is

His name is Tango, like the fizzy orange drink, they had the 'you've been Tangoed' adverts in the UK (don't know if they had them anywhere else so you might not know what I'm going on about)

We almost named Addison Dublin. It just didn't suit her, but I was disappointed about that.

Dylan has the same face structure as his Dad, don't ya think?
