I love Mickey or the Domino suggestion.

Maybe something slightly ridiculously old-fashioned like Rodolphus or Mortimer.

ETA: Or there's the names from Cats, like Bustopher Jones, or Mr Mistoffoles, or Skimbleshanks, or Mungojerry, or Rumpleteaser...

Tux (black and white cat- like a tuxedo)

#14 niggles

Posted 14 January 2013 - 08:22 PM

He doesn't look like my wee baby Toby. wink.gif

I think Angus (since you are interested in naming him after Macgyver) would be cute. Or just Gus.

#15 Peppery

Posted 14 January 2013 - 08:22 PM

So cute, I think Toby

#16 NunSoFeral

Posted 14 January 2013 - 08:25 PM

I'm thinking Stan.
Or Colin.

Looks like a Harvey to me.

#18 ~THE~MAGICIAN~

Posted 14 January 2013 - 08:28 PM

He looks like a Samson to me ...

What about Pooks? Dudley? Dougal? Harold?

But I'm Pooks!

No, really, I am!

Harvey is the name I've had picked out for years for a future pet (because of a book I read once) so that's my pick!

#21 LookMumNoHands

Posted 15 January 2013 - 08:44 AM

Bandit is my vote.

He's very cute Pooks!  happy.gif

I like suggestions of Domino and Tux.  From your list Mac/ Macguyver is awesome.  Banjo?  Morris? Doc? ( short for Doctor Who, of course  cool.gif )

Just as an update, DP rejected all of my name ideas but we have now settled on Gizmo. Gizmo is home with us tonight!

He is very cute and snugly but we are giving him some space and letting him have lots of sleep, as much as we would like to play and cuddle all night!

He was found on the side of the road, wasting away with worms and fleas and was about 5/6 weeks old. I am so grateful to the foster carer who has got him fit and healthy for us to bring home just 2 weeks later, he is the picture of health and so well socialized.
