As a lot of you already know, I've just adopted a new sphynx boy kitty from a lady in Denver. He's an awesome cat...he's sweet, playful, and super-friendly. However, I don't like his name "Amo" (sounds too much like ammo). I've been communicating back and forth with his original breeder in Texas; she used to call him "Yahoo" but I'm not crazy about that name either. I'm terrible at picking out pet names, which is part of the reason why I didn't rename Piglet when I adopted her.

Amo/Yahoo comes from impressive cattery lines, so he has a great lineage. His breeder has sent me lots of pics of him as a baby and kitten; I plan to post those pics soon. He's a year old and his birthday is really close to mine; he was born on July 24th, my b-day is July 25th.

I've included some photos of him...please, no fatty names please! :Dizzy: He's already lost a little weight since being with me. He enjoys playing with Reno and Piglet (when she lets him).

Thanks for your suggestions....I know there are lots of creative people here on this board! :BigSmile:

It's hard as a breeder to come up with good names for your babies. We just had our first litter of Bullies and it took us 3 1/2 weeks to name everyone!! and the one we are (thinking) of keeping, his name came last!
some boys names i liked:
Dallas
Jackson (Jax)
Remmington (Remmy)
Adonis (emphasis on A- called him Oppie for short. name means strong warrior)
Zeus
Oynix (mostly because of the coloring and it resembaling one pup)
What helped up was searching website and going through ALL the names lol. Ultimately picking names from our fave shows and a few from the list. i'd suggesting looking at shows/songs you like

We ended up going with
Adnois
Jackson
Phoebe
Delilah
Snooki

Thanks, kleese, for your input. I like Jackson but that name is already taken by one of his siblings (he came from a large litter). Dallas might be pretty cool, as his breeder lives in Dallas/Ft Worth. It seems to me to be eaiser to come up with cute girl names than with cool boy names. :Woo:

Some male cat names I've used/considered in the past:

Dude
Smudge
Sir Lancellot
Bob
Howitzer (Howie)
Sir Laurence Olivier (Ollie)
Simon Le Bon (shut up, I was a huge Duran Duran fan)
Bubba
Ralph
Tucker
Hugo

None are horribly creative, but they suited the cats they were matched with. :)

Im so jealous. I wanted him!!! It sounds like he is fitting in great. I would love to meet him.

For some reason he looks like an Adam to me. I like to name my animals people type names. I guess he reminds me of a boy at Johnnys breeders house and his name is Adam but they call him Addie for short.

Congrats!! :ThumbsUp::ThumbsUp:

Cool, you and I have the same b-day! Unfortunately, I can't do Searcy since that was my asshole first boyfriend's name, but the others are pretty good. I like his nose, too; makes him more distinct.

Tejas would be pretty cool, considering he's originally from Texas. :Laugh:

He looks like a Bubbs to me :ThumbsUp:
Bubbs...cute! I thought about Bubba, but it's a little too undignified. Bubbs is cuter.

I actually thought about Leo; looks like you, me, Candys, and my new kitty are all Leos here. Out of your list I also like Milo and Buck. Wow, I have a lot of thinking to do tonight...my head is starting to hurt....:LOL:

Hey, Inferno, you're welcome to come over anytime to meet him and Piglet! I thought about Adam, too, actually....I prefer simple, straightforward names.

Yes, he's fitting in very well...when Piglet isn't beating him up...LOL! Speaking of available kitties, there is a new sphynx kitty available on the Rescue board that is located in Lone Tree, CO....have you checked that out yet? He's quite good-looking and looks well taken care of and healthy.

Murphy...Milo....Baldwin....Baldhazar....Archibald....Nolan...
Javier....Charlie....Jedda...Gizmo....Samson....Jeremy....Full Monthy....
Garibaldi....Morris :Smile:
Great suggestions, Gizmo. I thought about Archie, Charlie, and Samson. All good solid boy names. :ThumbsUp:

I missed that add. I just went and checked it and it was gone but I found this guy. Isnt he cute? Lots of hair on his face but I love the eyes. I did email some questions to her so we will see. My dilemma is that I am going to attempt to breed eventually and I am looking to get a breeding female kitty within the next year so I dont think Jess will go for spending money on random naked kitties...:LOL::LOL::LOL:

:LOL: I call Blue "Bubba" too. Not like the redneck thing, though. It was more like a really baby-talk version of "baby" just got morphed into Bubba. I'm not fond of the name by itself but it seems to fit Blue to a T.

Awww....Diego is so cute! He'd make a great buddy for Johnny. Despite starting a breeder program and all, I still think Johnny needs a sphynx boy buddy to pal around with. The ad didn't mention a rehoming fee...maybe she'll let him go cheaper to a good home like yours. Good luck...I hope it works out for you! :ThumbsUp:

Boba
Baxter
Hardy
Jango
Westin
Captain Pickles (my sisters idea haha)
Captain Pickles...LOLOL!!!! That is too funny! :Hysterical: Several thoughts come to mind with that name...LOL! :LOL:

My husband wants to get a pink or white kitten boy and name it Butter Jones. He is completely serious....

When I see Amo is see him as a Binkley, Sebastian or Franklin. I am soooo not good with creative names.

i'm voting again.. because i LOVE LOVE LOVE Leo!!!! love the idea of where it comes from.. i love names with background meaning.

Maverick was also on our shortlist for our pup. love it.. but i always nick name and didnt like "ricky" for a pup (it's my uncles name!)

I named Bronx-e because John and I met at a bar named "the Bronx" but we originally met online "Ethernet/email" ... and John bought him as a gift for me, so i wanted a name that meant something to us.
The girls all came with their names including our dog...

Good luck with the names!
