Originally, my fiancee and I were determined to give our cats Japanese monster names, because we are big-time Godzilla fans. We were going to name one cat Godzilla and the other cat Gigan.
But I think right now we're going to go with two New York City names, Lexington and Madison. We live in the city and we love it here. We even decorated our apartment with b&w photos of New York landmarks.
We may change our minds, but at this moment, the cats will be called Lexington and Madison, if only because Empire State Building and Chrysler Building are a mouthful.
