These two handsome gentlemen will be coming to live with me this upcoming Friday. They don’t yet have names. The announcement of these two facts caused a maelstrom of email, mostly on the subject of naming.

Here are the suggestions I’ve received so far…

  • JiJi and Bucky
  • Holmes and Watson (or Moriarty, depending on personality)
  • Lewis and Clark (if they like to explore the house)
  • Jeckyl and Hyde
  • Heckle and Jeckyl
  • Groucho and Chico (or Harpo)
  • Laurel and Hardy
  • Monty and Python
  • Spam and Spam (face it, you can call cats whatever you want, they only listen selectively-or if food is involved)
  • Bela and Boris
  • Godzilla and Gamera (depending if they’re destructive)
  • Osiris and Sethos (or Horus)
  • Doc and Grumpy (or any of the other dwarfs depending on personality)
  • Ramses and Tut
  • The DOCTOR and Capt. Jack
  • Mickey and Donald
  • Hades and Apollo (or other Greek gods)
  • Caelum and something resembling “bathic”
  • Captain Jack and The Face of Boe
  • Shaun and Ed
  • Rassilon and Omega
  • Rassilon and Gallifrey
  • Tennant and Baker
  • Jayne and Malcolm
  • Fezzick and Inigo
  • Tron and Sark
  • Buckaroo and Bonzai
  • Ford and Zaphod
  • Porter and Ale
  • Hops and Barley
  • Cat and Other Cat
  • Cat who is this Cat and Cat that is not this Cat
  • Cat5 and 10baseT
  • Catastrophe and Catharsis
  • Basement Cat and Minion
  • Pinky and Brain
  • Cat and Cat
