Hi :) Weird request!

Recommended Posts

Hi everyone!

My name is Cin.

I have joined this forum in hope for some help!

It is going to be a weird request!

I am getting a kitten soon, and i need to name him ASAP

His Call name is going to be Sumo (nothing else fits him) but i have no idea about his pet name.

He is a British breed, and i have been searching for ages for something that links Brittan and Sumo Wrestling together

is there anyone out there who can help me?

ASAP sounds like a strange name for a cat!

Call him Steve Pateman

Purrfect but Mr Pateman wouldn't like you calling him a pussy.

How about Yakineko as it sounds like UKneko? not really but keep it away from the heater

I second the motion for Fat Bastard. Of course you will have to feed him a lot and then the name will be very fitting.

The only Shikona that I can think of that connects Japan to Europe is Kotooshu. I've seen it translated as European Harp, though I find it lacking...

*Baruto and Kokkai both reference European Seas, but those aren't near Britain.

The Koto is not a harp at all, probably closer to a Sitar than a harp, but is a traditional Japanese stringed instrument. I think it is often translated as 'harp' only as a reference to the traditional sound.

pronounced ou (o-u, not ow) or oo (o-o, not oooh) is indeed Europe.

Shuu means continent, but is not the most common form of 'continent' so I think it carries more of a connotation of Statehood rather than the simply geographic description of landmass. However another meaning is island, so that could contradict my last point. Nevertheless I see the combined 'oshu' to perhaps reference the EU, but that is just a hunch. It should also be noted that Shuu's dominant internal character is river (kawa), so there is a "watery" or "flowing" vibe to the shikona.

This is pronounced very close to the last character, in this case Shu, and basically means "breed" if it is in the proper context.

Neko is cat, and can also be pronounced as byou, though my guess is this form is used only rarely.

Still it could be fun to have Byououshu/Byooshu (Byo-oshu)

Very easy to translate: European Breed of Cat

猫欧種

Or Nekooshu, take you pick.

And then you have options to replace the middle character:

= ei, England or abbreviated from of Britain, and can be pronounced so many other ways...

hanabusa, a, ai, e, suguru, hana, hi, hide, yoshi, or ra.

猫英種

From these choices I like Byoeishu (Byou-ei-shu) or Nekohishu. Obviously many more possibilites, but I wouldn't consider the longer ones.

And lastly, if you go with you could drop the shu since Ei can mean "British" all by its lonesome. Then you don't necessarily need to include the "breed" closer. That would allow you to use the longer pronunciations and still come up with a pronounceable name...

Nekosuguru for example:

猫英

Good luck in choosing the name for new Kitty!
