  • OT: Naming a cat after a synthesizer

    A new cat might be coming into my household and I'd like to give her a synthesizer related name. Getting another cat is my wife's idea and I'm not 100% thrilled about it, but I'm not entirely against it either. Since the cat is being imposed upon me, I figure I have a little leverage in the situation. I'm going to stipulate that the cat can join the family as long as I'm allowed to name her.

    Here's where the fun begins. A synthy name would give me no end of entertainment as my wife coos at "our little (insert synth name here)". I'm looking for a synth or keyboard related name that has some flair and rolls off the tongue easily.

    I've tried not to think too hard so as to not spoil the fun. So far the best name that's popped into my head is "Solina" (Arp string ensemble).

    I could work hard at finding the name of every synth, keyboard, or fx box ever created. But it would be more fun to open this up to the forum. Let's hear your best synth themed cat names!

    Shoemakers wear the worst shoes.
    You left your ISO on Auto. That's a no-no.

      Ha! I can't believe I didn't think of that. Sometimes the most obvious things are the hardest to see.

        Well they named a synth after a CAT so this seems like a great idea to me.
        +1 on Med's idea.

            hmm...good idea!

            I'm going to call our naighbours new cat Kronos. Its fitting, because we cut his fathers balls.
            I am wanting, I am thinking
            To arise and go forth singing,
            Sing my songs and say my sayings,
            Hymns ancestral harmonizing,
            Lore of kindred lyricking.
            In my mouth the words are melting;
            Utterances overflowing
            To my tongue are hurrying,
            Even against my teeth they burst.

              Yes, just name the cat "Cat" and everyone will be happy.

              p.s. -- I had a cat named Macintosh. Maine coons make the best cats, they're practically dogs.

                Marion (Systems). My ex girlfriends name (from Estonia) (I still miss her, and not happy about it).

                Other suggestions:

                  I personally like 'Moog' or 'Oberheim'! Both companies played a major role in developing synth technologies 'for the masses'.

                  If our name gets chosen, do we win some kind of prize??

                    I was going to say "Synthia" as well!

                      More ideas:

                      Fizmo (model by Ensoniq)

                      If she really gats fat, you can name her Mo'phat (E-MU module)

                        I wanted to name our Cat Leviticus. Not for any reason I thought it sounded good. My next cat will be named A-100.

                          Aelita, Alisa or Juno?

                            My vote is for "Roland McHale".

                              AH! "Juno" is an excellent cat name, PC!
