Blogger removed my two newest posts for some reason so I have to rewrite them. Sorry for the repeats.
The Tony awards are coming up. You might not know this about me, but I'm a musical theater nerd. And aside from Les Miserables, the soundtrack that I grew up with and got me into Broadway was Cats. Yes, I know that ruins my musical street cred. But it's true.
But come on! It has a song about names! What blog did you think you were reading anyway? "The Naming of Cats" was my most favorite poem when I was a little girl. And the song adaptation is wondrously creepy.
So here's a name round up with names from the musical and names from the original poems by T.S. Elliot. In it you'll find sensible everyday names, as well as deep and inscrutable singular names.
Rum Tum Tugger
Okay, I need a kitten now.
