The name game

I'm taking over the bloggie to announce that I finally have a suitable name. No more girlie name, or worse yet, no name. I am now Gandalf the Grey from Lord of the Rings. My beans talked to lots of people about what to change my name to since Jean Gray isn't suitable for a boy. They eventually settled on this when they decided to keep me because Gandalf is wise and protective; just like me! Daddy liked that it still had gray in it since they have always called me gray. Mommy liked it because it represented another special memory. She and Daddy met for the first time at a Star Wars movie but the first movie they went to on a date (although Daddy didn't know that it was date because Auntie Val was setting him up) was a Lord of the Rings movie.

Now we all have permanent names. Smoke is really "Where there's Smoke, there's fire," Smoke for short. It suits him because he's always getting in trouble, darting into rooms (or the refrigerator) the minute the door is opened. Chewbacca is "Chewbacca the Wookitty." Personally I think it should be "Chewbacca the chewkitty" because she's always chewing on stuff. Of course, I'm Gandalf the Grey and the kitty formerly known as Jack that my Auntie Michele adopted is now "Perla" for one of the girl mice in Cinderella.

Dear Gandalf (the grey)
I think your people have chosen an excellent name for you!
"Wise and Protective" are two important traits for a cat!

Gandalf the Grey is such a terrific name for the ex-Jean Grey. My Food Lady Loves the Lord of the Rings books and movies! I think you have quite a lovely family!
