TOPIC: Geeky cat names

Geeky cat names 23 Mar 2009 16:06 #24196

My wife bought a cat.

This thread will be a combination "come up with geek names" and "guess the geeky reference"

Ideas so far:

1. Bubastis (easily shortened to bub)
2. Rygel
3. Schrodinger
4. Weevil
5. Feyd-Rautha
6. Admiral Ackbar
7. Nermal
8. Locutus
9. Zaphod
10. El Guapo
11. The Doctor
12. Captain Cat Harkness
13. Zalgo
14. Davros
15. Ulthar

And of course... my personal favorite, CATHULHU.

Forgot to mention, he isn't grey so Grey Mouser won't work.

I'm pretty sure Gray Mouser was not gray, that shouldn't be off the table. Fafhrd still works, regardless.

Nermal is speaking to me. I'm digging that.

Ken B. recommended Rin Tin Tindalos in a similar thread.

My first cat was named Floyd because he looked like the black and white cat in The Wall. My current cat almost ended up becoming Pink until I noticed the goatee looking thing under his chin, so he became Zappa (sometimes Shithead but that's another story).

Cathulhu is pretty impractical thing to call a cat, so now I am learning towards Captain Cat Harkness.

I need something that will overcome my wife's urge to name it crookshanks.

My girlfriend and her cat moved in with me two years ago. He has a fine name, Barkley, after Charles Barkley the basketball player.

Inexplicably, I have about two dozen nicknames for him now, most of which are both pedestrian and annoyingly cute, like Mister Meow and Kitty-Cat Boy. I really don't what the hell is wrong with me.

Our cats' names are Twonky and Twitch (from Robo Rally -- it's Amy's favorite game).

I have a loud part Siamese who as a stray 'teenager' kitten would wander around the house at my heels, meowing pretty constantly. She's 9 years old and chilled out some, but still meows more than any 3 other cats I know combined. She will jump on my lap while I am on the computer, and meow point blank in my face repeatedly. Jumps on my head at night and meows. Has to be in the bathroom while I shower, or she will sit outside and wail and wake up my roommates in the morning.

As she was very nervous and lost when we were trying to name her, my old roommate had I settled on 'S.O.N.A.R' - she was echolocating. Listening for the pings of where her humans were...

How is that for geeky name?

Clearclaw! Do it.

One of mine is Pryderi, after the backstabbing sleazeball from The Prydain Chronicles (and Welsh legend).

Clearclaw? That's almost as bad as what H.P. Lovecraft called his cat.

Our all black cat is named "Nubbins" after the cadaver that crazy guy with the metal plate in his head drug all over the place with him in Texas Chainsaw Massacre part 2. That's fairly geeky.
