Wanted: A Sci Fi Name For a Small Cat
This girl kitten is joining my household after my husband saw her huddled in the rain on the shoulder of an interstate entrance ramp earlier this week. Now we're trying to find the perfect geek name for her, and it's harder than you might think.
Do we call her Asha, for the tough Greyjoy daughter in George R.R. Martin's Song of Ice and Fire books?
Sabrina, like the witch?
Pris, everyone's favorite replicant from Blade Runner?
Katniss, the Hunger Games heroine?
Sydney, from Alias? Or maybe Bristow?
Or how about River? (If you need that name's origin explained to you, this might not be the blog for you.)
I need suggestions, people! What are your favorite female sci fi/fantasy names?
