Comment from Kate
I love his little crossed over paws and the happy contented look on his face. i only hope he realizes just how close to the edge of the bed he is :)
Om is thought to be the first universal sound made, according to Indians. We named our little Persian kitten that because he's so noisy and makes a lot of sound. It was also simple, and his nickname is Omi, which we all thought was adorable.
Comment from Kate
I like it. This is also the sound many people make when meditating. Do you feel chilled out every time you call her :)
It also has a slight regal feel to it too, which I would think suits a Persian cat very well.

I got the name after the priest that Henry Fonda played in Bells of St. Mary. Father O'Malley. There was a scene where he was addressing the nuns where mischievious kittens are playing behind him on a mantle and distracting the nuns. I love that scene.

Onyx is a black gem stone, so when we found an all black stray we named her Onyx. It would be like naming a white cat pearl or something. This name works for a boy or girl cat as unbeknown to us, some friends have a boy cat named Onyx.

We named her after our town's mayor! We call her Toasty most of the time because of an incident where she attacked my glass of wine.

The name Opalina is from a childrens' book about a white cat.
The 9 Lives of Opalina.
She haunted her owners' house for many generations and was the guardian of the families there.
My kitty had a tragic, whining meow, so I named her after Ophelia from Hamlet.

On the Andy Griffith Show there is the boy Opie, he has orangish red hair and freckles all over his face. So if you have a orange tabby you can name him Opie.
