We got a rescue cat yesterday, and her previous owners had given her a name which we don't like.

DH is keen to name her something funny/witty to do with her cute cross eyes, but all I can come up with is winks, which he thinks is dumb.

Any witty/funny but still nice suggestions out there?

Here is a picture of her - she's settling in to her new home wonderfully  wub.gif

Eta - was going to suggest Clarence but its a female

I like Barbra.

Reminded me of the old joke about the cross-eyed bear called Gladly (so Gladly the cross eyed bear) But that's an old church joke so just showed me up for the dag I am.

biggrin.gif Great ideas guys! I like them all, but DH had a chuckle at Barbara and Iris. Babs is pretty cute  biggrin.gif

If you google cross eyed cats in images, there's heaps of them  biggrin.gif I never knew it was pretty common!

And yes, she's beautiful. We're all a bit in love  original.gif

Redkris, I know that joke - it's cool

Oh she also could be a Sheryl or a Joyce or even a Trish.  She is so lovely that I'm sure she would rock any name you gave her.

Just for the record, my siamese cat is slightly cross-eyed - it's common in the breed.

I love Babs for her, though! It suits her!
