Smile Kitten names?

I just got a kitten! She LOVES to chase her tail, haha! She is light orange and is so sweet! I got her from the shelter and she has a upper respiratory infection. She is on antibiotics now and getting much better already. Anyway, I just cant seem to think of a name! Anyone have any suggestions?

Well there was a childrens book I had long ago about a cat that loved to chase his tail and the name of the book was Johnny-go-round. So of course we had a kitty and named him Johnny Go Round. He was so loved for many years until my daughter had to let the vet school put him down due to an inoperable brain tumor. We used to sing him silly songs like "Johnny go round and round and around Johnny Go Round likes sugar" cause he would stand on his hind legs and give you a hug and face pats. You could call her Sally Go Round? If she's half as loving you've got a real treasure.
We also got a very tiny kitten once from my son in law's daughter bringing it home and her mom wouldn't let her keep it, and the little thing had an upper respiratory infection and was so snotty she literally was blowing snot bubbles. So her name was "Bubbles". She did get over the infection but the name stuck :). Or you could go with when you got her and name her April. Also had a kitten I named Peekachu, cause every night she'd get in bed, go under the covers then turn around and stick her head back out to peek at you. There's so many choices I'm sure you'll find a name that just suits her! Cograts on your new baby.

Aww :) Congratulations!

We had a kitten one time that we name Bast, after the Egyptian goddess of cats :)
Our neighbors also had a dog that liked to chase it's tail until it got dizzy--as a result, her name was Dizzy :P Which I think would make an awesome name for a cat too lol

Be sure to pick one soon, though! In my experience, you have about 3 days before her name permanently becomes "Kitten" no matter what you try to name her lol

Gizmo is a cute/offbeat name. We have the neighbor's kittens hanging out around our place. So, I'm calling the biggest one Plume (because of her tail) the other black one Feather, & the light tabby one Seafoam because of her eye color.

Darn. I was hoping it was a male kitten. I just got a male kitten, a long haired gray tabby. His name is Dave. My roommate's white and orange tabby's name is Paul. Fantastic cat names.

Lol, we had a female cat named Bob--well, have actually, she's still here and grumpy as ever lol.

My sister named her when she was two, and the only name she could say was "Bob" and the name stuck, lol

I know a cat named Bob! I often talk to her, referring to her as Bobby, in my lame, wanna-be British accent.

I think that Janey (or you could spell it Janie) is a great name. We had a fantastic barn cat named Jane. And yes, he was male! We all called him Janey and it fit him perfectly. At first I did not like it, but it grew on me. I also love the name Dalton, I plan on naming my next cat that if it's a male.:)
