  1. Veronica

    Merry and Pippin were not brothers in Lord of the Rings. They are called HazmaT suits. I hope this helps. My question is 149 Roni. My name is Veronica and Roni is my nickname and my parents decided to spell it the way it is in my name, veRONIca. I am just curious if you choose Roni as in Maca…. Roni or a different reason? Me and my family have been having this debate since we came across your post. We have been looking for names For my new companion, an orange and white boy Lol

    Please let me know.. thanks for all the ideas. I had many of the same….. but not my own nickname lol

  2. Jay

    I was having trouble naming this orange cat but really you should look inside the pathway to there soul the eyes but it was a orange cat so I wanted somting more unique than Jessica

  3. Savana Lee

    We had an outside cat who had kittens, but only one made it, but unfortunately it was an orange female cat, so we struggled on finding a name. The best thing to do is to wait and find out their personalities, it will help a lot… I am honestly positive it will be a great idea!!!

    1. Merlot Rahenkamp

      you are so lucky to have gotten an orange female tabby! what a rarity! my last kitty was an orange female tabby and i named her cheeto, she was my furry soulmate but she disappeared at the beginning of june and i just got another orange tabby but he’s a boy, i named him mango

  4. Laura Richardson

    Hi I am new here and I need help with a name for my beautiful new furbaby it’s a male 10 week old ginger colored kitten he’s very playful and extremely sweet but I’m leaning towards a few names I like Pharoh I also like Copper and
    Kringer (from He-Man ) I would love some ideas if anyone has any Thankyou

  5. Danielle

    I have a kitten (who has six toes at the front and five toes at the back ) who showed up sleeping on our car engine. So I get to keep it. My mum said we could call it lemur because it had strips on its tail. I thought Leo or Leopard because of his spots on his tummy. WHAT SHOULD I CALL HIM?

  6. Sherry S

    I worked at a bed-and-breakfast in Switzerland and the owner named all of her animals after food. Like her cute black and white Portuguese water dog was named Toblerone and her orange kitty cat was named Cornflakes. We are getting an orange maine coon / Ragdoll mix kitten and my son wants to name him muffins but my husband thinks that’s too emasculating LOL. I love the name Aslan from CS Lewis’ The Lion the witch and the wardrobe but none of my family get it. So then I’m thinking Aspen because we all love Colorado Although aspen trees turn golden yellow and not orange…We promised my son he could name him. He threw out the idea of pumpkin before going to school this morning. I’m going to offer Cornflakes when he gets home to see what he thinks about that. Frosted Flakes maybe? But we don’t want the kitty to think he’s an airhead LOL

  7. Rob

    I’m surprised I haven’t seen Honeysuckle on any orange cat name lists. I have an orange and white female by that name.

  8. Natalie

    Satsuma hasn’t come up on lists which is surprising so I bet satsuma is a rare name for orange cats also Seville is another orange not really seen on lists
    I like the name squash, scorch and phoenix aswel
    All can be unisex
