My friend just adopted a new kitten - orange female cat. He isn't sure what to name the kitty.
The kitten deserves a better name than any of those.
Klonpin or Xanax.
Those names really suck, OP.
Come up with some more for us to choose from.
I was kind of joking on those names. Though I do like Christina Christopher Dammit!
r2 is correct.
I have a female orange tabby and her name is Ginger. The name isn't anything special, but it's better than anything on your list.
Kitty a l'orange. Call her KO.
I've always liked the name "Stoppy" for a cat.
Derives from "Stop that!"
Growing up, we had a great aunt who always had a cat around her house that she dubbed, "Stoppy". The name was given to various cats through the years.
I do like the Chairman Meow...I like it!
Tang is nice too.
When I found an orange tabby he came seriously close to being called "Plywood" or "Mr. Pretty Head".
Suggested by my bf at the time. He was a goof, but then, so was the cat.
Jake the Dog
My orange is named Ernest, after Hemingway's polydactl cats. What do you think of Ernestine? It's just kinda funny.
Mary! (as a name)
Orange Flip (a shade of Revlon lipstick much in vogue among my drag-queen friends back in the day)
Naranja (means orange). I had a cat with this name. Instead of calling him Naranjo or pronouncing Naranja properly he went by "nuh-rahn-hah"
R18, All of the neighbors collectively call the local tabby "Marmalade." She gets fed by all of them as well.
This thread is useless without pictures.
Work Zone No Stopping
Maximum Fee (prison orange, fee short for feline)
What is pussy furry.
r44 - I came to post Firecrotch! It's a winner.
Jolly Olly Orange
Is it at all Maine Coon-ish? I had a Maine Coon that I called George Coon-y, Coon-yi Previn and Mila Coonis.
Flynn - a Celtic name that means "son of the red-haired man
Colby after the cheese
How about Red Dragon, after the cheese?
Cheryl, 'cuz her pussy smells.
Buster Posey, cause they're both orange pussies.
Aww, I like Julius. I had an orangey named OJ, because he was crazy, like Simpson. People thought it was for orange juice and I didn't correct them and let them know I named my cat after an assassin.
I like a lot of these names! We'll have to call them out to the little kitty and see which one gets a response.
I appreciate the endorsements, but in this case, I would go with Bonnie Franklin.
AnnE Hathaway, so if she gets hit by a car it won't hurt as much.
Lindsay Lohan, it does not do anything, poops in a box and is orange.
A second vote for the obvious choice: Miss Sissyboodles.
Fleur. Just a great name for any female, regardless of color (or species).
Julianne Moore. Seriously.
You're not there yet. I liked someone else's suggestion of Chat a l'Orange.
Some of you are suggesting names the cat will never be called because it is too long. No one is going to call a "Chat a l'Orange" for very long.
An animal has to learn the name it's called by!
Can you grasp this fact, you stupid motherfuckers?
Marmie (short for Marmalade)
Annie, after Lil Orphan Annie
Chopper (after Orange County Choppers)
Marissa Cooper from the OC
Do they not have NICKNAMES in R78-land?
r84 – then name the animal the nickname, you simple tool!
Have you ever even had a cat, dumbass dickhead douchebag R86? Mine always had more than one name.
Given your anger issues, it's probably better for its sake that you don't have a pet.
Yeah well, r87 – I bet you leave your shopping cart in the middle of the supermarket parking lot, too.
Stupid and a dipshit -- a losing proposition.
As if shopping carts have something to do with this, moron R88...
You're wrong. I am probably the most assiduous bringer-back of shopping carts you've never met (and never will meet if I have anything to do with it).
I hope your BF or GF slaps the shit out of you often and with prejudice when you get mouthy like this.
This has gotten fabulously off track!

Snapping cat heads take over thread, come to blows over allowable cat name length.
Ruby. Orange female cats are rare, like the precious stone.
I had a hamster named Mousey Tung.
I like turtles
Pussy Galore or Miss Kitty.
Careful, R103. Three- and four-syllable names might be difficult for some of the braintrusts here.
Weigh it for yourself honey
Miss Sissy Boodles
Love the name Lucy Ricardo for an orange girl kitten. Most orange cats are male.
But just call her Lucy.
James van der Beek.
^ Love it!
Shea, the name of my beloved late cat.
How about Carmelita?
Marmalade is a sweet, though obvious name.
Anyone say Goldie?
I'm torn between 'dinner' and 'roadkill'.
maybe the cat shouldnt have a name. sort of like the artist formerly known as Prince. instead of the weird Prince design, you could have a photo of a ripped up sofa.
If this kitten is ever going to know its name, the name should have a strong vowel sound it it. Mimi, Sophie, Lulu -- if you really want to communicate on any level with the animal. If, on the other hand, you want your friends to think you're witty, cool, clever, etc., name it something like the previous posts.
How about "Agent Orange"?
Is that really your cat at R125, OP? She is beautiful.
I still stand by Carmelita.
There was a 50s movie on TCM a few months about an orange cat that owned a baseball team. The cat and movie was called "Rhubarb". I thought it was a cute name.
I've noticed a lot of cats used in movies and T.V. are orange...I suppose the color makes them stand out more.
Jones in Alien.
Fluffy in The Brady Bunch.
"Cat" in Breakfast at Tiffany's (who also starred in Rhubarb)
Thomasina in The 3 Lives of Thomasina
Spot in Star Trek TNG
And I'm sure a whole clowder of others.
Ugli, which is the name of a strain of some of the sweetest oranges in the world.

[quote] Bonnie Franklin
This one is in serious consideration.
I am happy to announce the kitty has a name!
My friend's seventy something aunt came to visit and he told her kitty did not have a name.
She was trying a few and called out Rufus Rumplefur. And the kitty answered....and purred. So Rufus it is. (Yes, it's a boy's name for a girl cat, but that's OK.)
Thanks everyone for participating!!
Oh hell to the no, OP!
I DEMAND you call that cat "Chat a l'Orange."
Rufus Rumplefur? It must be a jellicle cat.
What is wrong with Babs Bush?
James (my friend) said thanks to everyone.
He has this idea now to get a second kitty, a long haired one, and call her Meyownce.
(he's a hot mess. LOL)
Should have gone with Miss Sissy Boodles. I've been tempted to get a cat just so I could use that name.
Was Sissy Boodles what Jacyln Smith named her shelter kitty? (No, wait, that was Bootsie Gumdrops?)
R167, You could just do L'Orange. It's ghetto fabulous and chic at the same time. My friends named a neighbor's cat that was a frequent visitor to my house. "Hey, where's L'Orange today?"
With all due respect to your friend's aunt, OP, you might as well have named the poor little girl Douglas.
I like Marigold, or Chutney.
I'm picking up two Siamese snowshoe kittens today, brother and sister and need names URGENTLY.
I've Googled myself silly and can't find any good names (and god knows, there aren't any good ones on this thread).
"Rufus" is a great name for a ginger cat, because it means "The Red One" in Latin.
I like Tiger Lilly
[quote]I've Googled myself silly
That sounds HOT.
They aren't ginger, they're Siamese snowshoe.

Pad and Thai
Everyone is going to think it is Rufus Wainwright, so not a good name. It is not too late to call it Bonnie Franklin.

Except for educated people.
Chili Con Catni
OK, the boy is Spike but we still don't have the girl's name. Suggestions so far: Hermione, Grizabella, don't much like either.
Pronounced O Ron Zha Lo
My first cat was a shelter cat.
I named her Bootsie Gumdrops.
Bootsie's not bad. She has little snowshoe boot markings.
