My dog's name is Isis. A good "Egyptian" type name for a cat is Bast (for a boy) or Bastet (for a girl), because they are the cat god and goddess

It was hard to pick just one new favorite from all of the suggestions, so I picked two. As a fan of clever word-play, I really loved:

Mr. Maow (suggested by Ayesha M)
Clawed Debussy (suggested by Sheri P)

A staff member at Care2 will contact you to get your address and I will mail you both a little kitty treat.

Thank you to all of you who left comments!

My avatar cat's name is Bumbletail Tigerbear Stickywhiskers - Bumbles for short. He has a lovely tail like a large bumblebee, beautiful stripes like a tiger, but is cuddly like a teddy bear and just loves to get his whiskers into everything!

***** Cherise U. --- HA! ... "sourpuss" is an appropriate name to add to this goofy list... Your name however, "Cherise" on the other hand is a pretty name and allows one to think of cherry blossoms in Spring...

...if you named your cat "sourpuss" or "yasser aracat" or something goofy or stupid like that... would i have such pretty thoughts about your pet??? ...if you were to name your cat "trouble" or "terrorist"...what can you expect from the cat's personality as it develops... do you think that there's a chance that the cat may develop a bad attitude of sorts...? advice is... be Kind, Careful, Loving, and Respectful when naming your pet... it's the name they'll live, hopefully, many years with... a name that may influence their character and personality, a name that you and others will interact with, and the name that will be on their memorial, for all eternity.

**** Shawn P. - Regarding "Aoefa" / ("Efa")... that's an Awesome Name! ...respectable, has history, and class, and MEANING... I believe a name can greatly influence the evolution of the character of an individual... cat, dog, person, whatever... The name "Aoefa" (Efa)... is a name to be proud of... I admire your husband for taking the time to do some thoughtful research while naming a New Member of Your Family... Bravo!

@ Micheal M. -- love Yasser Aracat!

Oh Johnny O, you are such a sourpuss!!

How could you find this list of great names worthless? Well, at least you like d Dandelion!

My husband, Mike, named our cat Aoife'. He researched names for 3 days befotre settling on this Celtic name pronounced Efa. It means beautiful life. And she is definitely his little girl:)
