Apparently in France, you’re supposed to name your pets according to which Letter Year it is. For pets born in 2007, it’s the letter C. (Though we had no idea about this when we chose Cosette last week).
So, according to Laboratoire TVM, here are some suggested names for male pets born this year: Caballero, Cactus, Cadburry, Caillou, Calvin, Canyon, Capone, Caporal, Captain, Carambar, Caramel, Carbone, Cartoon, Caruso, Cash, Catch, Caviar, Chamallow, Charlot, Chaz, Check, Cheddar, Chianti, Chips, Chipster, Chorizo, Chraz, Chuncky, Citrus, Clovis, Clown, Cobra, Codex, Cognac, Colonel, Confettis, Cool, Cosby, Couscous, and Cowboy.
Needless to say, we flipped the list over and looked through the female names instead. Our kitten is now called Canaille (rascal), which is definitely less feminine-sounding and more appropriate for our little whiny brat.
