Just being nosey really? how did people come up with their cat's names? It took us ages to think of our little guys name, my hubby and the kids wanted to name him after a super hero, they had 'catman' and 'marvel' lined up. I didn't really like either for him, it didn't seem to suit him, so i was listing hero's, when it got to my mum's hero 'Freddie mercury', and we all just looked at him and thought he was definitely a freddie! so that was it he was called freddie and it suits him through and through.
