The Name Game

Ok folks, my new sister has been with us almost two weeks now, and she still hasn't told us her name. It seems she is willing to allow us to select one for her, but Mom, Dad and I are all at a loss as to what to call her. We have to do something soon, because Kukka-Maria commented recently that the tabloids are after her to find out my sister's name. We can't have the tabloids involved! I pointed out to Mom and Dad that Oreo held a successful contest to name his cousin, and even Moses held a contest to name his pet fish. So we've decided to hold a contest to name my sister! You've seen some pictures, and Mom promises to put up more throughout the week so you can get to know her better as we all have been, and that may help you come up with ideas.

It's going to work like this: You can leave suggestions in the comments of any post I make this week. You can make as many suggestions as you like. You can make name suggestions up until (and including) Saturday. On Sunday, Mom will get all the names together, and she, Dad, and I will have a pow-wow (or pow-meow?) and announce the winner as soon as we decide. If you suggest the name we give her, you will receive a gift from our family in the mail, and my Mom and Dad will also make a donation to a shelter or rescue society of your choice, in your name. But we will get to those details when it's time. Throughout the week I'll post some pictures and any other tidbits of information that may be useful.

To start you off, here is some info about her:
  • She's a girl
  • She looks a bit like a little cow
  • In fact when Dad called her "Little Cowgirl" one night, Mom liked it
  • She's crazy, and her eyes make her look a little insane
  • She likes to play with everything and her new favorite toy is the laundry basket
  • She purrs the instant she is touched
Thanks in advance for all your help, and good luck!

We likes Cowgirl - but here is some other ideas we thought of too.

Annie Oakley
Wrangler Jane (cowgirl on F Troop)

That's all in the "cowgirl" group that we thot of for now....

Finny & Buddy

Kukka-Maria said...

I think you should name her Suri, since she was probably born just before the TomKat baby, making it appear the TomKat copied you.

Or Vaca Loca (Crazy Cow in Spanish).

Here are my suggestions:

Gau Mata - "Cow Mother", a term of endearement by Hindu people for the cow

Hathor - the Egyptian cow goddess

Hera (Greek) / Juno (Roman) - Greek goddess of marriage and childbirth who was represented typically by a cow

Shaggy and Scout said...

Well, theres some good singin' cowgirls like Dolly, Loretta, Dixie (as in Dixie Chicks)....

Ivan and Izzy from WMD said...

Long long long time before me? My mom had a little girl named Cowbell.

Your little sister looks like a Della to me. She has a cute little nose.

jenianddean said...

We were thinking Daisy the Cowgirl, but we also like SSS's suggestion of Dixie.
--Jasper, Josie, HB, Maggie

Just Ducky said...

I say Smudge for the little dark nose she has.

Myst and Blackie said...

Calamity Jane or Dale (as in Dale Evans)

Fat Eric said...

Everyone has suggested such good names - I bet you have fun choosing - unless she tells you another name first!

I have been doing my research. Here are my suggestions. First, some "cow" names:

Damona - a Gallic (French/Irish) goddess who was known as The Divine Cow!

Juliana de Kol- Famous Californian state cow who was escorted to the 1904 World's Fair in her own private railway carriage!

Ermintrude - The cow from the Magic Roundabout (classic British-French children's cartoon, Ermintrude was famous for calling people "dear heart". My mum still loves Ermintrude!

Milka - like the cow chocolate! Plus Mattingly and Milka go rather well together...

Crazy Daisy - speaks for itself!

Or, non-cow-related names:

Jellicle - because Jellicle cats are black and white!

Hattie - my favourite girl kitty's name because it was my sister's name!

I am going to suggest Maxine; in honor of the psychokitty. She's black and white like Max and she has catitude.

Whatever her name, she looks like a real cutie!


Quinn and Angel brandi said...

You could call her Annie-O for Annie Oakley, my mama's favorite cowgirl when she was a little girl. Annie-O and Mattingly!

How about Bella

Cows and cats both wear bells, and you said she likes bells.
