Way too important issue to go under the ‘pets’ heading.
I need your help, EB.

Give me some suggestions for a name for my new kitty.
He is a red point ragdoll. Super fluffy, super white with light red points.

No photo, no name.

I'd probably call him Eros. I like naming pets after Greek Gods/esses. I imagine that kitty would definitely cause people to fall in love :D

My first instinct was Ronald because of his colouring.

Then I thought, well i named my kitties based on their Russian heritage, maybe that will yield some other ideas. I googled the Ragdoll heritage and it’s American.. so.. Ronald it is!

OK, I relented.  Still need a pic, but given the description, what about Fintan.  Means white fire apparently.  Seems appropriate given he's white with firey points.

Dougall McFluff
Finnegan McCool

With white and red points you can ONLY give him Celtic names lol

No help with names but the cuteness is strong in this one!

I’m sorry but I can’t help unless I get to know him first, I can pm you my address if you could just send him to me then Im sure I can figure out the perfect name.

Seriously need to touch that little nose

Ooh I like Fintan!

Goodness me, what a delightful ball of squish, so adorable.

Daughter has absolutely ruled out Fintan as she knows a Fintan and it would just be too weird.

This is the shortlist put forward so far: No one in the family can agree on any of them. Give me your opinions!

Pumpkin (got him on Halloween)
Yuki (means Snow or Happy)
Chairman Meow

I think McFluff will be the last name ( thanks Murderbritches)

Rafferty McFluff.

Ferris McFluff.

Clancy McFluff.

Duff McFluff.

How about Rory 'red-haired king'?

Also - can we organise some sort of EB cat-share arrangement so we can all have time with the kitten? He's right up there in the top five cutest kittens I've ever seen 😍.

I'm not much help because I tend to give pets silly names like Darren or Bob or Beryl.

I'm just here to coo over the cuteness.
