You gotta name one of them Mau Zedong. Or Chairman Mau.

Poke and Pad?

I was just struck by the way those two move together and poke around: so quick, so light, so curious. And you could nickname them Pokey and Paddy. Also, pronounced slightly differently, each name is a type of food—poke bowl or pad (e.g., pad Thai).

We did princess names for our kittens (Snow White for the pure white one, and Cinderella for the white one with gray spots) so maybe..

Elsa and Anna?
Alanna and Adella?
TeFiti and TeKah?
Apollomi and Artemis?
Calliope and Clio?
Lilo and Nani?
Tiana and Evangeline?
