Years ago I had a friend that named his pet rabbit stew

Name for the Cat, ER. short for emergency rations.

Kidding, Really just kidding.

Judging by the activity levels of our cat, Barnacle would be a suitable name.

Thanks everyone for entertaining suggestions and some brief stories. In the end, we whittled it down to two names. And we went with:

Casco...as in Casco Bay, ME

...and we are now trying to teach our 4 year old son not to say "Costco." :-)

True Story: Some folks we used to know, live-aboards; She wanted a cat- he said no way. But he finally agreed - he said she could get her cat, but he got to name it. And the cat she got was named $hithead. It was fun listening to her call the cat out on the dock on an almost daily basis.

Wait! Don't name him yet! I have it. Since you sail only to Little Misery call him Itchy as a reminder of the poison ivy that covers that place.
