Name suggestions for these black & orange balls of fur? (NOT a dating thread)

So we took in some stray kittens...


We gave them flea baths and got them de-wormed. We domesticated the lot as best as we could, but after much deliberation and debate with our 5-year-old daughter, we decided to keep two of them. They'll never replace the love we had for our orange tabby who died this month... but they're a welcome addition to our home.

The first one, we nicknamed Dot, because of a small dot on her right ear (which you can't see in this picture), but we're thinking about changing it. Not sure. It wasn't exactly a creative decision. But here she is:




But this little one... this is tougher:


We initially thought (hoped!) that it was a boy, so we were dead-set on naming it Harvey. I'm sure some of you nerds should be able to figure out why.
But it turns out Harvey's a girl. While I'm totally okay with keeping the name (because, seriously, it's awesome), my wife and daughter are not as keen on it now.

So... have at it, otters. What are your suggestions?

(for reference, our deceased cat was named Ripley, after Ellen Ripley, naturally.)

Well, the obvious complement to Dot is Dash.

Two Face was the first thing I thought of too. Maybe Andi Warhol?

Awww, I'd keep Harvey. That's adorable, and feels moreso for a girl kitty.

The Tortie should be named Janus. also, torties are almost always female, FYI.

I would call the other one Zephyr.

For the new one, I dunno, Yin Yang?

Yin yang was my thought too. Is the left eye orange? That’s crazy. But Ying yang is a stupid name and you’d sound stupid calling out his name.

I don’t know. How about John McCain?

Better yet how about John McClane?

Better yet how about a whole Die Hard theme?

McClane
Hans
Grubber
Argyle
Holly
Mr. Takagi
Ellis
You could name two of them Johnson
Bill Clay

Now you have to keep them all!

Here's a pic of the two sisters, who are also obviously best friends.


Romy & Michelle?
Thelma & Louise?

Hmm...
A few good suggestions so far, though.

If I ever have kitten siblings, I’ll try to convince my wife to accept Sam & Max (of comic book, then video game, then TV show fame).

Heh, that reminds me, my niece used to have two cats, one orange and one black. She named them Pumpkin and er, Blackie.

You are to be envied, Dan, except of course for the loss of your old cat. Kittens are sublime.
