I just adopted a new kitty and I'm taking him home tomorrow after he gets fixed. I'm trying to think of a name for him, but I'm drawing a blank. I'd like to name him something aviation or math related, but I'm open to anything. Right now, I'm leaning towards calling him Mobius, or Moby for short. What are any of your suggestions?

If it helps, he's about a year old, average sized, medium hair, and he's brown and white. His name at the pound was Oreo, for some reason lost on me.

Thanks for any and all suggestions.

When I saw your user name, Maybe call him 'Nanook'. My nick name was 'Nanoo' because I couldn't pronounce my 'M's and my 'T's when I was little.

Well, considering that you are "getting him fixed", I guess naming him "multiplication" is out of the question, right?

Seriously, how about "Aileron" or "Airfoil", or maybe even "Rudder", but that sounds too much like "Udder". "VeeOne?" "Rotate?" "Turbine?" "Touchdown?" "Vapor?"

My cat acts the same way, but all cats have a soft side. They'll cuddle up in your lap for a nap, and be very affectionate and loyal if you treat them well.

It depends more on how you make them. Tamales are pretty good but you have to boil the meat first or they won't be tender enough!  vomit 
Ground up like hamburger meat is good if you want to go the enchilada route, though. Just add plenty of sauce, it's kind of a "gamey" meat. Ironically, it tastes like chicken.

We just call my cat "fireballs." Go figure!

But if you're really stuck, might I suggest the following:

CHUCK NORRIS (Math related because Chuck Norris is the only person ever to be able to divide by zero)
