    I'm looking at getting a Manx kitten very soon. What would be a good Mac themed name for a female kitty?

    I'm still hugely partial to the codename for the first TiBook, "Mercury."

    Female?

    Lisa (precursor to the first Mac)

    then there are all the cat references in OSX - Jaguar, Panther, etc.

    What color is the kitty? Got a pic?

    Gonna go visit her next week, and hopefully take her home the week after. If she was black I'd name her Panther for sure, but she's a little Calico darling. One of my friends suggested Clarus, and another suggested iPussy :)

    Oh, I'm in a all iBook household. I have a 800 G3 14". I just converted my roommate to the light, she dumped her Compaq for a G4 12" iBook. And my boyfriend even has a 800 G3 12" iBook. I haven't seen any code names for iBooks. I think that would be really cool.

    That is an adorable looking kitten demoptera. Congratulations on your choice. I think that Rosebud would make a nice name, Rose for short.

    I vote for Clarus

    As a calico, she has kind of that dogcow look going.

    Very cute.

    "C'mere cat."

    I have a white cat named Cocoa. That has a Mac theme (though he was named to match a black cat named Casper, not for the Cocoa language).

    Re: Good Cat Name?

    Ok, watch out, great brain at work... :D

    Pod or Mini - small and portable, makes noise, and is a good looking accessory when out and about

    Tami - Twentieth Anniversary Mac Individual - at least the only one I know of

    Tiger - because by the time she grows up this will have replaced Panther given what we know about their copyrighting of the name.

    Ossex - for OS X

    Colonel Panic or just Colonel or Panic - ie Kernel Panic - because that's what cats do to your life on occassions - that just go nutz for a bit but we still love them

    Expose (with the french thingy over the e) - because cats are always spinning around and changing users, and we can keep watching them spin over and over again. Plus they love rolling onto their backs for all the world to see and they are happy to show their cookie on the way out of the room

    ...all for now
