Your mission, Penny Arcade Forums - should you choose to accept it - is to help me name my kitty.

Vitals:

Age - 12 weeks

    Catface Meowmers. That's what I plan on naming my next cat if I get my current one a little bro/sis. Her name is Dinah, after Black Canary.

    This is my old roomies cat Vada, she was named after the gil from My Girl.

    Every cat I've ever owned has been named kitty. Although Aloysius could be a cool name. I think it means something like famous warrior.

    I like naming cats after diseases. Maybe that'll help you out?

    That or mythological beings. Mine is named lilith.

    Looking at yours, I'm feeling Gaia, even if it's not color fitting :)

    No, it's pronounced "Shit head". If you're gonna do it, you do it right!

    Long, fanciful, complicated "funny" names are really only funny about 3 times and almost immediately become cumbersome. You realize within a few minutes that it's trite and ditch it for a nickname.

    If you name them something that's longer than 3 syllables at the absolute maximum, you'll end up shortening it to something that's 1 or 2 anyway.

    I have a cat simply named Cat and he actually suits it quite well.

    I'm going with Skylar here.

    I'm still working on my wife to let me name a future cat this.

    Until then though:
    The big one is Xavier, the little one is Tabitha.

    My two kitties are called Goldie and Isabella. We call Isabella, Bella since its less of a mouthful.

    Warning, may be very difficult

    Another point about kitties. The little kittens are always the cutest but imo the bestest cats are the big huggable ones. My cat Goldie is the best cat ever. He loves to talk, so if he is cuddling anyone be sure to hear him meowing in reply to everything they say. He is such an awesome cat. SO CUDDLY.

    God, I wish I could get a talker. My Maine Coon can talk, but never does unless you wake him from a nap, and the little Tabby meows a fair bit, but she doesn't have a voice, so there's no actual noise.

    Oh, he's definitely a cuddler. Wants to be a lap-cat so much, even though he's way too big for our laps.

    This is my little Himalayan, Lucy - she never shuts up. She's fighting with my Ewok/Shih Tzu.

    As for the name: Schrodinger.

    grey and white stripes looks like he should be a mathematical or sciencey kitty. Howsabout something like...

    Tangent (I wanna name my next cat this)
    Kilowatt
    Orthographic
    Neutrino

    for example. Or name him after some awesome science dudes. Like

    Albert (Einstein, of course)
    (Alan) Turing
    Feynman
    Planck
    Calabi-(me)Yau (ohohoho! I kill me.)

    Or really pun it up and name him Schrodinger.

    Full disclosure- I have a sweet fat orange and white female named Iso. As in Isometric. There may be a theme.

    Since he hasn't been yet, I'll chime in with CoJoTheLawyer. It's obligatory in a naming thread.

    I personally wait a few days to name my cats, eventually they do something noteworthy that suggests a good name. Take my current satanspawn, he was no where to be found when I was serving my brother in law a plate of spaghetti and meatballs. Suddenly, he was somehow attached to the brother in laws ass and the spaghetti was all over the floor. He became Nightcrawler in honor of his BAMF skills.
