Name that Cat

Today we got a cat. The idea is mostly to have something for my daughter to love on, take care of, and play with. She is so lonely sometimes. Raising an only child can be so heart breaking. We have entered into problems I never imagined we would have to deal with. (Don't hear what I am not saying! I love having her, wouldn't trade her for anything, and am not distraught about raising her. I just wish she had someone to share childhood with.) Being close to other family's helps in some ways, and makes it worse in other ways.
Today though we decided to do something pro-active for her. We got her a cat! Here he is:

Now we have a real problem...we don't know what to name him! So I'm opening it up to you, dear readers, suggestions please? We want something strong, and possibly unusual for this fellow. He tends to be timid, and we would like to counteract that with a great name!
What names do you propose??

how about morpheus or maybe xavier?
steve suggested hercules...
apparently we only suggest movie names/mythical greek figures!

Funny! We have been considering Morpheus, and talked about Hercules! We are also looking at Argon, another Greek name meaning inactive...kinda fitting. So far the cat has taken up residence on our bed and heated floors, only moving when chased by Lily!

Hi! I just discovered your blog and will enjoy browsing around. I have always had cats and here are some names: maybe too cutesy for your taste ;-)

We currently have Casey (aka Casey Jones), but have also had Percy, Tuna, Benny, Barney.

How about Toby, or Hero? Maybe a strong biblical name like Samson? Just some thoughts...
