New member of the family needs a name

Found this little guy on the side of the road and I think that I have to keep him. We looked around for a nest and stayed there for a little while to try to hear other kitties but there was nothing. Then I thought maybe momma was moving her babies and he was the last but his belly was pretty empty and slightly dehydrated. Other than that, he was still pretty bright and lively, screaming his head off for someone to help him.

I took him home and made formula for him with goats milk and he was starving, he took to a syringe right away. Two days later and he is eating formula mixed with a little bit of wet food out of a dish. He just started eliminating on his own today. I'm thinking that he's between 3 and 4 weeks old. The poor little guy just kept crying and crying and I finally figured out that he needed a fuzzy blanket to knead and suck on and now he's content. He screamed so much that I was thinking of naming him Decibel but he's quiet as a mouse now.

Anza the 55 lb standard poodle has decided that she can be his surrogate mommy. She likes the benefit of cleaning all of the kitty food and milk off of him as he gets quite messy after crawling in the dish.

Anyway, I want to give him a nice name if anyone is willing to help.

Aw what an adorable baby. Nice going picking him up, he could very well have been abandoned, either by his momma or humans.

I'm thinking... Jason. :)

Anzason, since Anza seems to have adopted him. Along those lines, McAnza or MacAnza. Ibn Anza.

Mewser, or Mr Mewser.

He's so cute. My daughter said he could be called "Fluffles Wootenpop." Then she told me not to post that. Oops.

@JoBlueQuarter I like the name Jason but it might weird out a close co worker of mine, he might think that I like him or something.

@ACinATX Too long of names so I would have to shorten it to? Anza? I already have one of those. I used to have a cat with a really, really, really, long name. It was OrangeFacecatCoyoteSquishyRavenManchild. It was always shortened to Facecat when referring to him and Squishy when talking to him. I also have a kitty right now who's name is MeanKittenHamsterBoy. Don't ask, lol

What an adorable baby!

He strikes me as a Chase. No clue why.

I don't have any name suggestions but he is so cute! I have a cat that I had to pull out of the wheel well of my husband's truck. My vet said he was about five weeks old and he was skin and bones so I was afraid he wouldn't live. He is now a fat and happy eight year old cat. I like @ACinATX daughter's suggestion of "Fluffles Wootenpop."

Our kitty is named Benjamin after Benjamin Franklin. My daughter was nine when she named him.

Just how precious is that little face? I think he looks like a Matthew. If you want cutesie you could call him MatKat.
