Once upon a midnight...

Help me out, oh wise internet. If I were to get a black female kitten, what are some good names that go nicely with Shakespeare and Marlowe? English poets? Shakespearean characters?

MQ is lobbying for Maisy or Midnight. I was actually willing to give in, but my husband, bless his heart, wants to stick with a theme. And I love nothing more than a good theme.

What about Rosetti (as in Christina) or Duffy (current poet laureate is Carol Ann Duffy) I definitely think you should name her after a female!

Jane (Austen)
Emily (Dickinson)
Juliet
Helena

By the way, we can't believe you're getting another cat. :)

Ah yes, but remember how many cats the Big Guy USED to have?!

I can't name an animal until I've seen and held it.
But -- what about Grimalkin? or Cheetie, spelling suspect, which is a Scottish nickname for a cat.
