After some more discussion, and some encouragement from a few of you (thank you!), I think we have selected a name. We did not use Eleanor’s suggestion, though Flowers Kitty Cat is quite distinctive.
I googled the name to see what would pop up, though I told Greg I had not yet tried searching for the name and M.I.T. to see whether it was suitable for a math genius.
“Oh, it’s a great geek name,” Greg said with pride.
What does that mean? Greg didn’t offer any explanation. I’m not anti-geek, clearly, as I’m married to one. But I prefer names that connote dignity rather than geekery.
The name is not Leia. Or Apple.
