Kitten Name

by: Syd in Florida
kitten
this is the kitten we are getting..

Hi, We are getiing a maine coon kitty in a few weeks!! We already have all the toys and cat trees and etc....

But the only thing that we dont have is the NAME! We want the name to start with an M because she is a tabby and has a big M on her forehead!!

Sincerley,
Sydney

P.S. we want it to mean something like happy or beatiful..... and more.........

thank you!!

Reply:

Hi Syd,
What a gorgeous girl! I can see why you want a name that speaks of her beauty!

Let's see, M names. I like M names, they roll off the tongue. (My son & dog both have M names)

For "happy", how about Merry?

In Latin, the meaning for Margarita is pearl.

In Chinese Meili means beautiful and graceful.

Melina is a pretty Greek name derived from "meli", meaning "honey"

If she's your little lady, Marta is an Italian name meaning "lady, or mistress"

Also Italian, Milana comes from the root "mil" meaning "favor, grace"

Minerva was a Roman Goddess of wisdom, war and protection of the city

Mohana means "bewitching, infatuating, charming" in Sanskrit

Maybe one of these strikes your fancy? (It was fun thinking of names.) Thanks for sharing your new little girl, and best wishes with her!

Naming your new kitten
Your new kitty looks almost exactly like one of mine, the female gray one. I couldn't think of names either when I adopted her and her brother, so I asked my kids who are older to name them and I just kept those names....Zoey for the Girl, and Tyler for the Boy. Since they don't answer to their names for quite sometime, you might even want to wait to see what her personality is all about, and then maybe a good name will come into your mind.

Good luck and love that kitty with all your heart. My kittens enrich my life, and add so much to my daily happiness.

New Kitten!
by: Maine Coon Cat Nation
Hi Lexi,

A new kitten! How exciting! Oh, let me see. I just love names. I'm going to take some time to think about it. Is it a boy or a girl?

Maybe some of our visitors will have a suggestion?
Carrie

The most obvious ...
"Uni"

Name for Kitten
by: Maine Coon Cat Nation

Hi Again Lexi,

It sounds like your new kitten is a tabby. How about Tabitha for a girl? They white around the eyes sounds very unique. I don't know if a particular name comes to mind. Do they look like glasses? How about Spec? (short for spectacles).

You may want to choose a name based on personality, your interests, or just what sounds nice to you. We have quite a few kitten names in our Maine Coon Kittens section (just see the links on the upper left of this page.)

I know it's overwhelming at first, but it's also so much fun to choose the perfect name!

Enjoy your new little one! ~Carrie

Choosing just the right name for a new pet kitten is so much fun. Hopefully you've found some inspiration here.

There are endless possibilities. So get creative! Anything goes when it comes to unique kitten names!
