Steampunk Cat Name

Post  blackrider23 on Sun Sep 14, 2008 6:07 pm

We have a new male kitten and have been trying to think of a good steampunky name.
Thought I would get the brass(spare)goggles crew in on the brain pool

Names we have thought of.

Cogs
Sprocket
Dr. Horrible

Any ideas?

Volt/voltage
I know its not entirely steampunk, but I wish I'd called my cat voltage...but 'Yuri' stuck as his name- how mundane...
Also volt as a cat name isn't entirely random as cats were used as an early source of static electricity (to demonstrate it) cat

I once had a cat named Shrodinger. I kept him in a box. Then one day, he disappeared.

What about Deasil? (Not a misspelling!)

How about Heisenburg? Of course, if you know how fast your cat is moving, you wouldn't know where he was, and vice versa, but for that good a name this seems a trifle to pay.

Dogbane.

I know its not steamy but I love it. My late lovely moggy was Hepzibah Electra Dogbane. Although had I known I'd have called her Carbane instead in an attempt to sway the fates. Crying or Very sad

Post up some kitty piccies, naming is always easier with a little furry face to apply it to.

Awwww what a sweet looking little fluff head. Damm my allergies keeping from having a cute little fluff ball of my own.

Oliver is a good name as is Pinstripe, Colin, Mainspring(if it is the pounceing sort) and inkpot(because that is what it looks like it dipped its' tail in.)

Sorry, had to get that out of my system. Colin is a great name for a cat, Miss Gaslight.

Post  Mrs. Sullivan on Mon Sep 15, 2008 7:18 pm

May I suggest Simon as a possible name? I had a very similar looking kitty named Simon who passed away several years ago at the ripe old age of 16.

He/she looks like a love! cat

Other than that, Sprocket's a lovely name.

Those used to be my jokes! I was too late for it..

I would go with Schrodinger as well, or Igor. Either would be interesting.

When I was a student, some friend gave their cat the slightly more subtle name of 'Erwin'. It gave them an excuse to explain Schr÷dinger to anyone who visited. Smile

I liked one of your original suggestions, "Sprocket"

But I also like the name "Agamemnon"
