Wanna help me name my new pet moth?

.....Moth orchid, that is!! :D A phalaenopsis orchid, by its formal name.

At the flower market this morning, they had some potted orchids marked down to a third their normal cost, since they'd lost most of their buds. I picked one with only one dud bud, and promptly decided I had to have it. So I took it back, along with the rest of the flowers for work, and sold it to myself. :)>>>

Eee, izn't eet PRETTY?! :agree?:

What name did you pick? I'm guessing Whitey.

Ar, er, hehe... I'm still a bit stumped. My orchid eludes classification. It won't be pinned down by a name! ::)

Iago. HmmmmMm. Itsa good name. I'm tempted. But... *grimaces* this name reminds me of the parrot in the cartoon TV series of 'Aladdin'. ::) :-\ Shameful?

Anyweh, I'm kinda thinking that itsa girl orchid. I have no way of knowing this, but male names just don't ring true. Heh! another cartoon reference - I'm thinking vaguely of the classy soprano white rose character in Alice In Wonderland. ;D

I just picked up on this.  Your work has you go to the flower market to pick up flowers for the store?  Sweet!

I always liked that scene the least, and the one with the birds and sea creatures circling her around a rock or something like that.... i don't know why. They provoked some kind of weird feeling of rejection in me when i was little i think. The cheshire cat ruled, though.

I LOVE the Cheshire Cat!

Sometimes - honestly - when I see a sliver of crescent moon, I think of it as the cat's grin. ::)

Now I'm thinking an Alice-related name would be cool. Maybe Alice?! :P Or - hey... Mr. Rabbit! coz it's white too! ;D

What about Dinah? That's the name of Alice's pet kitty.
