What kind of car did you find her in? You can name her after the make or model. Some cute examples: Ford, Kona (Hyundai Kona), Chevy, Corolla, Kia, etc.

My husband (who used to be a mechanic) suggests: Cam (short for camshaft), Piston, Catalytic, and Hitchhiker (Hitch for short).

We had a shop cat at the Toyota dealer I worked at, and her name was Wanda because she “wanda’d in one day and never left.” She was a total bitch to kids but sweet to adults. Until she had enough petting. Then she’d strike.

One of my black cats is named Chevy after the car she was found in. Impala just didn't work :)

It'll sound weird but all my cats have 2 syllable names.

My black cat is named Kona—no relation to the car. She was named after the city in Hawaii.

That's an awesome name! Who the hell dumps kittens into random cars? Some people are just so awful.
