What's in a Name?


Hi folks Archie here to tell you the story of how I got my name...


When mum and dad adopted me my name was Marshall and I was about five months old.  Mum wasn't so keen on the name so she was looking for ideas on a website that had cat names and their meanings.


I was not a shy kitten in fact the first moment my bedroom door was opened after my quarantine period, I scampered down the stairs straight into the living room and began playing with toys!


In fact mum insists I said "tada, here I am" but I think she's fibbing on that one.   For a while my mum and dad considered calling me Rufus or Russell which are both supposed to mean red but those names didn't seem to suit me.  Then mum came across the name Archibald which means bold and she thought that was perfect for me because I was such a brave boy.


so I lived happily ever after with the name Archie :-)

Annie from Krasota Castle Cats. My fancy name is Oksana. I was already named when my beans gotted me. I don't knowhow my beans came to call me Annie but once they did, that morphed in to all sorts of names- Annie bannanie being the most common.

I thought you were Archie 'cause of Archie Andrews. Do you have him over there by you? He's so cool. You should get a brudder and name him Jughead. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Archie_Andrews_%28comics%29

Archie is purrfect for you.

We think Archie is the purrfect name for you! Any kitty who walks straight into a strange place and starts playing with toys deserves a strong name like that.

We prefer Archie over Marshall too! Love that picture of you in that plane. MOL. Do you still have it?
