Meet the kittens!
Kitten number one, black male
Kitten number two, silver tabby male
Kitten number three, brown spotted male
Kitten number four, brown spotted female
Kitten number five, black male
Kitten number six, black male
I might have made a mistake as to the sex of each kitten, but I think it's fairly accurate. It's hard to tell when they're so tiny! Each kitten weighs about 100 g when they're born, or a little more than 3 ounces. They have plenty of fur, and already sharp, long claws. They'll open their eyes after a week or so, and they'll start to hear in a few days. Isn't nature amazing?
-All kittens will have the family name "Hufflepuffs", and they'll be named after their color as in "Hufflepuffs Black XXX" or "Hufflepuffs Brown XXX". (For example, Gisele's last litter were "Hufflepuffs Black Ixion", "Hufflepuffs Brown Ida", "Hufflepuffs Brown Io", "Hufflepuffs Silver Ismene" and "Hufflepuffs Brown Ikaros".)
-The names have to start with a L.
-The names have to have a common theme (We've had greek names, romans, ducks, singers, mythological creatures, cheese, spices, precious things and Shakespeare characters. So any theme goes, really!)
-We want the names to be fairly short and something that you actually could call your cat - not a very fancy name that's just for show.
We have some ideas, but I'd love to hear yours!

Oh, one of the males, Lupin, is supposed to be Lote.
Oh thematic. I'll give that another thought.
what theme was the K-one that ended up with Kitty and Klara?
Jessica - precious things: Kitty Karat and Klara Kristall :)
Hur söta som helst och alldeles ljuvliga!

2) silver tabby male - Lupus
3) brown spotted male - Leo
4) brown spotted female - Lyra
5) black male - Lynx
6) black male - Lepus
Wow... three black males, that was tough :) how will you tell them apart once they've been named?
Great, great ideas everyone! Love it! :) It'll be hard to choose.. two other themes we have are cars, and biblical names.
It *will* be hard to tell the black ones apart, but generally cats turn out to be quite unique-looking. Right now, they have different colors of nailpolish on their claws, and we might have to do that for quite a while :)
Names for female: Sherezade, Minette, Sissy, Estrellita (little star), Shakira
Males: Yuri, Tarzan, Woody, Apagon (lights out) for the black,
They are gorgeous.
I'll try with the game theme again :-)
Wonderful kittens! Thank you for posting!
Los Angeles (or L.A for short)
Livorno (Livo for short)

Lagoya (Norway - Svalbard and Jan Mayen)
Because I miss sunny and warm weather let's go in the pacific ocean islands:

Since your cat's blog is called Hufflepuffs, I thought a magical theme would be appropriate. How about magical beings names? (They are all good wizards, not a baddie in sight!)
1. Male Black Louis (from Harry Potter)
2. Male Silver Leo (from Charmed)
3. Male Brown Lazaar (wizard from Sonic the Hedgehog)
4. Female Brown Lily Luna (from Harry Potter)
5. Male Black Lupin (Harry Potter)
6. Male Black Lemminkainen (from the Kalevala) this one might be a bit long...
I hope you like them!
Laffe och Laka! :D :D :D
Wow, great themes!!!!! I cannot come up with anything better than the car theme that we discussed yesterday:
1. S*Hufflepuffs Black Lotus (male)
2. S*Hufflepuffs Silver Lexus (male)
3. S*Hufflepuffs Brown Land Rover (male)
4. S*Hufflepuffs Brown Lancia (female)
5. S*Hufflepuffs Black Lamborghini (male)
6. S*Hufflepuffs Black Lincoln (male)
I think that there has also been an old car make called "Lloyd" and don't forget about "Lada";-)
Åhhh...... Dom är helt adårabell! :-)
And I love the herb theme.
Computer theme :)
How about cat-egory 'candy' or has it been used?
Latte Toffee (made up)
Liversnax (cat candy):
KitKat bars are delicious and so are your kittens!
They do look lovely!
Perhaps a HarryPotter theme? I found the following Harry Potter names:
1. Male Black Loxias
2. Male Silver Lupin
3. Male Brown Lucius
4. Female Brown Lavender (or, as has been suggested elsewhere, Lily)
5. Male Black Livius
6. Male Black Lorcan
There are serveral other possibilities with L, as conserns the males:
Libatius, Lancelot, Leonard, Lee and Lysander.
The best of luck (and a huge thanks for a wonderful blog)
