I gotta be honest, he kinda looks like a Carl...

vote-for13vote-against

Rageface?

Sorry, but he looks like he's glaring in both of those pictures. lol

vote-for10vote-against

If you know the song, feel free to take it in that context, but upon reading Rageface by @purplefeather I'm thinking Bogart...
verb (used without object)
To act or move in a tough or aggressive way. "That big guy doesn't ask--he just bogarts."
noun
a person who hogs or monopolizes something. (does that describe cats, or what!?)
a person who acts in a tough or aggressive way.

Don't Bogart that chair, my friend... :)

@purplefeather: I dunno, I get more of a "disdain" vibe.

How about Odin? The only thing more disdainful of humans than cats are gods :)

vote-for7vote-against

He kind of looks like a "Jinx" to me.

vote-for9vote-against

Chester or...
Stormageddon-Dark-Lord-Of-All...
(Stormy for short)

vote-for11vote-against

Maybe "Grouchy" - because in the first picture he looks like he is mentally quoting Groucho Marx:
I never forget a face, but in your case I'll be glad to make an exception.

My caption for the second photo would be another quote, same author:
A child of five would understand this. Please send someone to fetch a child of five.

@okham: I'm with you on the "disdain" look. How about Dain? Different. Unigue. Descriptive!

vote-for15vote-against

Cranky Carl. Don't blame him for being 'cranky'. Wouldn't you be if you lived nearly a year w/someone who didn't like you? When he sees that you want him, he'll become friendlier. Then you can stop calling him Cranky & rename him Carlton (as in 'Carlton, your doorman.')

What about patch or patches

vote-for8vote-against

Dave. He looks like a Dave to me.

vote-for6vote-against

Robert. Definitely a Robert. Perhaps a Jonathan

vote-for7vote-against

Poor little guy, if you lived in a house where someone hated you and probably didn't treat you too nice, you'd be glaring too.

That being said, he's a lucky kitty to have you for his new best friend. So, I'll vote for "Lucky."

vote-for14vote-against

Let kitty decide on his own name. I can see from the picture that he is hiding under that table. Like @barnabee said it is a pretty sure thing that he was not treated very well in his previous household. As such he is probably very scared today and unsure of what is going to happen.

Wait for a few days or weeks for kitty to warm up to you and show his real personality. You can pick a name then. I bet when he discovers he has a new loving forever home a good name will strike you.

vote-for7vote-against

Kinda looks like a Vladimir to me.

vote-for9vote-against

@dw1771: I think he looks like a "Cat", but if you went outside to call him home and said, "Cat" who knows how many critters would come to you. I used to ask my pets what name they wanted, but all the cats wanted the same name, "miaou,".the dogs requested "rrrruf," and the fish never replied.

I would call him "Bronek" (but then, my cat's name is Fred... )

vote-for11vote-against

@annierose: If you base a cat's name on what he/she answers to, then my cat (TC for "The Cat") would be named for the sound a cat food can makes when you pop the top.

vote-for8vote-against

He looks like a toasted marshmallow to me. Maybe T-Mallow?

vote-for11vote-against

I see a Magnum, P.I. moustache....MAGNUM

vote-for8vote-against

I agree that you should live with him for a bit and choose a name that suits him.

I kinda think he looks like an Eddie. Eddie is a happier name than Carl.

vote-for9vote-against

Please not Carl. All I think of is Carl in "Walking Dead".

vote-for7vote-against

@adadavis: wszósz, that would look great on a personalized food dish. Not sure how to spell that in English -- fwshoosh. maybe.

vote-for7vote-against

I have a cousin with a cat she has named Oliver.

So I will throw that name into the hat.

vote-for8vote-against

Call him "Fluffy" but ironically. Use air quotes when you refer to him or call him for dinner.

Other than that, I like cat-name puns. Chairman Meow, Santa Claws, Meowntain Dew, Whiskers in the Dark, Cat Buy Me Love, Eartha Kitty, Dr. Cats: Professional Therapist (doc for short), 5/5e/6/or 6a, and Sam Peckinpaw come to mind.

Franklin

Murderface

Detective Larry McBoob

vote-for5vote-against

How about Iamnotamused, or "Muse"/"Mews" for short?

vote-for9vote-against

If he refuses to stay in the house, then he definitely is a Carl.

vote-for6vote-against

I like Hypurr. Then again I have Thing One and Thing Two at my house.

vote-for7vote-against

@philosopherott: Bahahahaha. I've been reading that the last few weeks.

Stormy actually would make a pretty good name for that cat. And Stormageddon-Dark-Lord-of-All fits nearly every cat I've ever encountered (and I'm a cat person).

vote-for7vote-against

Name him after your favorite Wooter. LazyZombie has a nice ring to it.

vote-for11vote-against

In both pictures, that cat is thinking "Go ahead -- make my day". Call him Dirty Harry or Clint.

vote-for6vote-against

SPOT!!!!

"Serious" might work with that expression...

vote-for7vote-against

Smoky or Ashes (apologies to any Catholics, but it really looks like the cat is ready for Ash wednesday).

vote-for9vote-against

He's got stunning eyes, and the first thing I thought of was Amber, but that would never do for a boy.

Then I was mesmerized by his handsome face and said, he could be trouble, so how about Bandit or Pirate? I named my all black cat Harley after I was told he was going to be trouble! So something like that could work? Actually, I'm all about Harley! He looks like a bad boy, but he's a beauty! Exactly like the machine. Whatever you call him though, he's a beautiful cat, and I'm happy to know he's now in a home where he will be loved!

@baqui63: Yeah I was also looking at the coloring and thinking "Ghost"...

vote-for8vote-against

I agree with @mml666: I am getting a grumpy vibe. Oscar the Grouch!
OR
Tut as in King Tut when your being formal.

vote-for6vote-against

Thor. No reason really, he just strikes me that way.

vote-for5vote-against

He looks very serious, but not in a bad way. Something that goes with Sir. Call him Galahad.

vote-for7vote-against

Everyone says he's so serious... how's about Joker?

vote-for6vote-against

to riff off @thumperchick + add Shakespeare, there's Feste, the fool from Twefth Night. Or Launcelot (Gobbo) from Merchant. Sometimes cats just choose their own names. We have a grey one where we started with Moth and she decided to answer to Patton.

vote-for5vote-against

I'm thinking Gandalf (immortal wizard) or Legolas (immortal elf).
