I'm getting a new cat, a Russian Blue. My previous cat, whom I gave to my son, is named Dashiell, sort of after Dashiell Hammett (who wrote The Thin Man and The Maltese Falcon), but also because I just liked the name. "Dash" also makes a good nickname. The new cat is female and gray, or "blue" as they call it in the cat world. The only actress who means enough to me to use her name is Jean Arthur, but I don't think "Jean" is a pretty enough name for this beautiful cat. So I'm left trying to think of something film-related that sounds nice and can be shortened to an easy nickname.
Connections to the color blue or to Russia would make sense. I thought of Ninotchka (a favorite film), but what would I call her for short? I thought of Nora after Nora Charles, to stay with the Thin Man theme, but I don't know...
I'm hoping someone has a good idea. All suggestions will be considered.
She looks like a Hildy, and she looks like trouble hahaha - but only in the best of ways. Very weird, this looked like a recent thread and it's not - glad it worked out and I hope you and Hildy are having lots of fun together!
