Drabble: Choosing Names

Title: Choosing Names

Author: badly_knitted

Characters: Jack, Ianto, Gwen, Owen

Rating: G

Written For: Challenge 289 – Baby Names at tw100

Spoilers: Nada.

Summary: An overheard conversation puzzles Gwen.

Disclaimer: I don’t own Torchwood, or the characters.

Overhearing an odd conversation between Jack and Ianto had Gwen puzzled.

“I like Millie for a girl,” Ianto commented thoughtfully.

“How about Oscar for a boy?” Jack replied.

“Hmmm, okay. Or Oliver, Ollie for short.”

“No, I knew an Ollie once, he was an idiot.”

“How about Jasper then?”

“I like that. Maggie?”

“No way. I dated a Maggie once. She dumped me.”

Frowning, Gwen hurried over to Owen.

“Jack and Ianto are discussing baby names. Is Jack pregnant?”

Owen snorted. “Hardly. They’ve been arguing all morning over what to name their kitten and they haven’t even got one yet.”

The End


Hehe! Cute.
Thank you!
They're silly. You can't name a kitten until you get a kitten.
Exactly! They've never had a kitten before, and you know how Ianto likes to be prepared. They'll pick out names, then get their kitten and find they can't call it what they chose because it doesn't suit the kitten and they'll end up naming it something they never even considered.
hahahahaha I thought they were choosing names for the baby weevil!!!!!
LOL! No, they've decided to have a little kitten. Of course, neither of them has had a cat before and they don't understand yet that they can't name it until they get it and find out what it's like. They'll learn!

Thank you.
This came out adorable.
Thank you!

I meant to credit you with the idea, but I have a brain like a sieve and I completely forgot *headdesk*
Thank you, glad you liked!
Aww, they'd make cute kitten parents! <3
They would, and maybe will. Not sure yet if I'll write the story or not, it's so long since I had a cat I'd probably get all the behaviour wrong and I have so many readers with cats they'd all be telling me I got it all wrong, lol!

Thank you!
Luke and Loverboy approve of this drabble! It shows how silly humans are. :-p

(Yes, Loverboy is the one doing the grooming. He grooms everyone he can pin down, cats or people. His name fits him well!)

Yay! Kitty approval!

Gorgeous kitties =)

Thank you!

(I was shopping today and saw ginger root on sale. I think I got a silly grin on my face and started giggling).
HEEHEE love these two getting ready to be kitteh daddys, great work and poor Gwen getting the wrong end of the stick.
Well, what's more likely in Torchwood - 'Jack's pregnant' or 'We're getting a kitten'?

Thank you!
Darn, I was hoping that Gwen would think they were naming a pet and that Jack was pregnant! LOL!
LOL! I wrote it the other way around, sorry!

Thank you.
*awww* So cute, already thinking of names... :) <3
Thank you!

Yes, Ianto likes to be well prepared - I'm sure they've already bought dishes and toys and a nice bed for the kitten. Of course, the kitten will probably end up sleeping on their bed with them, lol! All the preparations in the world can't take into account the fact that cats do whatever they want.
Great drabble :)
Thsnk you! I was stuck for inspiration but a helpful friend came up with an idea for me!
If the boys are this fussy over the name I can't wait to see what happens when they try to pick out a breed,lol.
If it keeps up, they'll still be arguing over what to get and what to call it next year, lol!

Thank you.
Aww cute. But they should really wait and see what name fits it, you can't decide these things in advance.
Although I do like Oscar for a boy cat, and my friend had a cat called Millie who she had to have put down last week :-( so I would vote for Millie if its a girl in memory of her.
She was a really grumpy little black and white cat who apparently wouldn't let anyone stroke her. Except when I went round she always surprised everyone by coming to me for a cuddle. She never stayed long before wanting to bite me, but at least she came to greet me. I liked her. She had character! Lol.
As you can tell, neither Ianto nor Jack have had a cat before, and Ianto is just trying to be organised and properly prepared. He has yet to learn that doesn't ever work with cats. They'll pick out names for a boy and a girl, then choose their kitten and realise the name just doesn't work, and end up calling it something they hadn't even considered.

Sorry to hear about your friend's cat. She sounds, personality-wise, a lot like the cat we had when we were kids, Pom Pom. Didn't like to be stroked, but would sometimes sit on your lap if you kept your hands to yourself or only touched the top of her head.(Although colour-wise she's like my old cat Joe. He was the best cat ever. Well, I'm biased of course).

Thank you.
Fortunately it is not a child if it would never end.
Of course, if they DO have a child, the discussion will start all over again!

Thank you.
