Heave Ho everyone!
In consensus with the breeder I have now picked my kitten :3 He is a rowdy little guy who follows her around and plays a ton, never afraid of whatever she pulls forth to play with.
Some of you may notice my thread on the Discussion forum (do pitch in if you have a snow Bengal) and it's unfortunate, but the mink boy just isn't up to the adventure of travel (the breeder believes) mostly because he doesn't like new things - such as toys. When she plays with him he is very hesitant and kinda just stares at her toys or fingers. I mean really STARE, big eyes deer-in-the-headlights stare.
The breeder recommended the other one, so while I was very attracted to the mink(he's got the most adorable face, the most fabulous spots and a voice that sounds like a meowing-alarm) I agreed with the breeder that she would know best what would fit me. I also asked another breeder's opinion just to be on the safe side ;)
Anyway! Back to the Star of the Show - and his upcoming naming.
That's right :D I get to pick the name that goes on his paperwork ;) I'll no doubt need a fancy/meaningful name while I also need to be able to cut it short(nickname?)

He is from LITTER N - thus the name must begin with an N
Any suggestions will be received with gratitude. Also any "I second that name" would also be nice to get, so if you like one name a lot - don't hesitate to say so!

Here are the ones currently suggested:
Nebuchadnezzar
Nirvana
Nikola Tesla
Nova

And here's the little guy - upcoming love of my life :3

I usually plunder favorite movies or novels for pet names. So here goes...

Navi - after the big blue kitties of Avatar :)
Nero - kind of a fun name because he was the 5th emperor of the Roman Empire, but also the badguy in the Star Trek reboot
Nemo - Of course is the Fish protagonist in the famous Pixar movie, as well as the fictional captain from Jules Vern's 20,000 leagues under the sea.

I like Nemo too, first thing I thought with N... short and sweet, not sure cat would answer to something on the lines of "Napoleon Fisticuffs Bonaparte stop playing with that Ming dinasty vase!" ;-)

Nemo - it's one of the names I did consider but had to discard. My cousins companion dog was called that and she still hasn't quite gotten over his death last year :( We avoid the name in general, since she can very emotional and we want her to be happy.
Napoleon is such a stuffy name though XD Maybe a name for a Persian? Though he was quite small, haha

I love the name the cat game! I usually go for music related names:

Nazareth
Nugent
Nyan Cat
Nero
Nico
Nu Katz
Neurotica
Neco Case
Napoleon XIV
Nailbomb
Nilsson
Nine Inch Nails
Nitro
Nasty Savage (an actual band, but not appropriate for such a sweet little doll)

You can find a long list of names starting with "n" here: http://www.catnamesmeow.com/list-of-cat ... ing-with-n

Do you have to name him before you get him? I think you need to spend a couple of days with him and a name will just pop out at you!

I know you're super excited. He's gorgeous!

I'm thinking I'll "nickname" him when I get to know him, but I do need a cool name for his paperwork :) His pedigree I guess

I had a friend with an amazing tom named Nicodemus when I was a kid. He was such a rad cat.

Yea, I don't blame you. The trouble with waiting is that you get forced into producing a name pretty quickly, so might as well carefully select one rather than having to produce one off the cuff.

For me, I wanted to get them insured from day one, so I needed names, plus I took them into the vets a few days after getting them and that went in their files and website etc. Also, in Neytiri's case, once I told the breeder the name, she started calling her that before I even got her home, which was a nice bonus.

Good luck, please post pictures when you bring him home :)

Nicodemus - that's actually rather awesome!
I'm sure I'll be a regular here when he comes XD I'll need good advice on several things, hehe. My mom and dad never really bothered to turn their house into a real cat home - they got rid of the litter box as fast as they could, when the cats became outdoor/indoor cats.
I'm going to get a French Balcony and the windows are a bit weird so I'dllneed some advice there when the time comes.

As for the naming, I made a huge list for each of the two cats we have - then we kinda just voted in the family. My one brother wanted both cats to be named "Kitteh" with an eh sound as the end. He's rather funny ;)
Or vet will also need a "regular" name for the papers she use - they get this little book with all their information in it.

I'm hoping to get a new phone soon with a much better camera :P there will be pictures taken all day long when he arrives (I figure he wants some peace and quiet though, so the plan is to have him in the bedroom then read some children stories to him)(I have the books from my childhood)

Love the name Nicodemus. Nico or Demus for short! Both work.
