Kept all adoptees names :)

Except one who I adopted from a shady hoobly Ad Before I knew better
He had no clue of his name ... I renamed him”Toby “ sounding like the phrase “meant “ to be”

Many of you may not know , my avatar pic is to honor my first sphynx named Yoda .
She passed from an embolism . I adopted in her honor .
Ironically and a little eeery at first , I ended up adopting a male with the same name Yoda. I kept his name ..she must have wanted it that way

The breeder gave one of my boys his name cause she had to hand feed him and was crazy about him. She named him Nudo Ross. So now it's Ross for short.
His brother from the same litter didn't have a name when I visited them first. When I looked into his eyes the reminded me of the lake Quilotoa in Ecuador. His name is Toa for short.

When I got my girl, a retired breedcat, her name was April. She didn't respond to her name. One day a friend of mine said her name should be Jade cause of her eyes. I yelled Jade and...April came running. Since that day her name is Jade.

Love this poll @Catzzzmeow

Yoda we had picked his name after seeing his picture. I sneakily showed Ryan a picture of Yoda pretending he was just a random kitty on the internet. We brainstormed names together if we ever got a sphynx in the future (I had already put down the deposit on Yoda as a Christmas surprise) and Ryan suggested Yoda. We both decided right away that's what we would name ours.

I had picked out Finn's name before he was even born.

Raven's name was originally Rah, our breeder and ourselves both wanted to change her name, kind of like a fresh start for my sweet girl. I wanted to name her Qi'ra (sounded similar to her old name, also a Star Wars character) but Ryan mentioned Raven and we both liked it, so Raven it became.

We had several names picked out for a boy and one for a girl. We told our breeder that we had no preferences for gender, color etc. we just wanted a healthy cuddle bug. We were leaning on Oogi before we saw his baby pic, but that sold the deal.

We liked their names too much to change them! "Nym" after her mom, Nymphadora Tonks; "Smidget" because she's a midget and a sweet heart.
