Good names for a cat

Quote from: Morituri
On an unrelated note, I have decided that "Schwa" would be a good name for a cat.

I put forward the name "Sosumi".

It largely depends on the cat's coloring, coat pattern, and personality.

A particularly vocal tuxedo cat that likes to "sing" might be called 'Steinway'.°

EDIT:
°Or who likes to sit on the piano.

I would have to meet the cat.

I've basically established my male cats are going to be named after American Presidents.

The next one will be very lucky if they escape being called 'Milhouse.'

I'd be curious to meet one named Fillmore.

Chairman Meow is a good one.  I have thought in the past of naming a cat that, but didn't think to post it here.[1]  I'm glad that you did.

[1] I didn't know about the bilingual bonus there.  I only was using the English language joke.

I'm pretty sure our next cat will be named 'Schwa'. 

In the hopes that, unlike our current little miss wound-too-tight, he or she may never be stressed.
