What should I name my cat?
Jan 1, 2023
M$637 bet
My partner and I are getting a cat soon, and we need help picking a name! She's a feisty stray, less than a year old, scooped up off the street by a friend of a friend. I will choose the answer based on whichever is ranked highest, on average, after both my partner and I independently rank all the names suggested in this market. The market resolves when we receive and name the cat, which will probably be within the next few months. I've seeded the market with my partner's current top five choices (generated via ten minutes of brainstorming) to give you an idea of what she's into. Personally, I'm partial to "Momo," "Dimsum," and "Costco," but I'm making this market because I think we can do better. Go wild! Mar 14, 1:50pm: For reference, here's a tweet with a picture and a video of the cat in the replies: https://twitter.com/cosmojg/status/1503429901856165892 You might also want to stalk my Twitter profile to get an idea of what I'm into. 👀 Mar 14, 11:38pm: If her name ends up being, for example, "Subskitty" or "Subskiddie" instead of "Subskitdy," the question will still resolve to "Subskitdy." The same general rule applies to all other answers. When two or more answers are phonetically identical (or near-identical), the answer submitted first will take precedence. May 12, 11:02pm: KITTY INCOMING!!! We'll be acquiring the cat on or before May 15th. Expect resolution soon.

Slightly prefer "Subskitty" because the "tdy" construction seems weird. I guess it's "Subs" for short?

Given the cat's original name, my partner has mentioned that she is considering "Mona" for her new name to avoid confusion. Personally, I'm kinda meh on it.

You should name your cat Subsidy.

We'll be getting the cat any day now! Apparently her original name was "Cona" so I'm adding that here for completion.
