The Naming of (my) Cat(s)

"The Naming of Cats is a difficult matter,
It isn't just one of your holiday games;
You may think at first I'm as mad as a hatter
When I tell you, a cat must have THREE DIFFERENT NAMES"

- T.S. Eliot

As I'm sitting here waiting for an Advil PM to kick in, for some reason I was thinking about the above poem as I contemplated the various names I call my own cat.  So for no other reason than my own entertainment, here are the various names I call my own cat.

His given (by me) name:  Jean Luc
The name he had before I got him:  [nothing...he wasn't named]

Other names...

...JLA (his initials)
...Predator (because he thinks that he is)
...Felis Catus (look it up...)
...Domestic House Cat (see above)
...General Sterling Price (the name of the cat the original movie True Grit)
...Pyewacket (reference HERE)
...Pyeis Wacketus (see above)
...Chairman Meow (suggested by THIS guy)

 Okay, the Advil is kicking in...time to make some golden slumbers.
