    Since joint names are catching on, for pairs of people (like "Brangelina" and "Jedward"), my OH and I thought we might name our cat (Stouffer) and our new kitten (Zuul) with the joint title "Stoul". :D

    Then we could say things like "Have you fed Stoul yet?" and not have to bother with saying both names. Genius! :cool:

    My son, however says he would "Rather die" than use this excellent system. :eek:

    What is your opinion of joint names? Are you a fan of their quirky creative nature - or do they make you want to punch journalists in the face and burn tabloid newspapers in huge bonfires of disapproval?
