SOTD: Burberry Brit Red

I have a busy day ahead of me so I am reaching for the jolliness of Burberry Brit Red. This is just a wonderful unique scent and really makes me wish rhubarb was used more often as a note in fragrances.

And now onto my kitten update, pictured below are the two kittens I will get to meet tomorrow and have to choose between, as you can it is going to be hard, and their shelter parent tells me they are both little luvbugs:

In my craziness of loving names ( I have one the most used names of the 1980's for girls, so I am always intrigued by a lovely name), I have already begun to come up with ideas, which I might just completely scrap out the window after meeting the kittens, but from their pictures this is one I have come up with:
For the first kitten pictured, she has pretty green eyes, explains Giada:
Giada= "jade"= Italian
Innogen= "beloved child"= Greek
Isobel= "pledged to God"= scottish variation on Elizabeth
Isolde= "fair lady"= Welsh
Liath="grey"= Irish
Luar= "moon"= Portuguese
For the second kitten pictured, she has golden eyes, which you can't tell, which makes more sense with the name Mead:
Mab= "Baby", but was also the name of the Queen of the Fairies in Shakespeare's Romeo and Juliet = Irish
Mead= "from the meadow" also don't forget the delicious honey drink= English
Mirabeau= "wonderful"= French
Siva= "grey"= Bosnian
For both of the kittens:
Avalou= "apple"= Breton
Gin= "silver"= Japanese
Myrrh, I just think is would be a gorgeous name for a grey cat

The beauty of pet names is you can go with the ones that you love that are too outlandish to name a child, although some of these names aren't, but are on the pure beautiful side. I am totally going to spoil by kitten once I get her.

Oh can you get them both -- the names you are considering are gorgeous and a propos !!!

Pavlova,I wish I could get both of them! But that would be three cats in one apartment; my roommate has a cat, his name is Henri Matisse (my friend is an art teacher). I'm so glad you like the names and think they are appropiate; I'm trying to go with something different for a gray cat, they are usually named Gracie, Misty, or smoky, although my aunt has a great name for her grey cat, Suade.

Oh how exciting! I love each and every one of the names you picked but especially LOVE Myrrh and Isolde...

PS- I can obviously relate to the frustration of having such a popular 80's name :)

Daily, so glad you are liking the names (I admit I am a bit of a name addict). Isolde happens to be a name I have loved for a very long time; If I ever have a daughter it totally goes under consideration. Did you know there actual groups dedicated to the identity people with our name have?

Jena these are gorgeous names and those too are adorable. Avalou and Myrhh are lovely for the any eye colour names,
I am also very soft on the name Isolde, I like the legend of Tristan and Isolde and I also like the idea of a name with Irish heritage.
I thought Siva was quite fun too!

Rose, apparently around here we are big lovers of the name Isolde ;-). I admit out of all the names I really leaning towards Avalou, because it is both cute and utterly lovely. The funny thing is I found both Siva and Avalou by looking at translation machine's I first looked at what grey was in other languages that is how I got Siva and Liath and then apple for the heck of it in Breton, which gave me Avalou. Now would have Chris Martin and Gwyneth faced so puzzlement had they named there daughter Avalou?
