Aloyisius, You're Delicious
I assigned the surname "Petrie" to our beautiful bunch, and Mari was the chosen one who got to select the first name for this tabby fellow.
The beautiful tabby boy's name is an easy one for me: Aloysius Rosebud (are you horrified yet?)
Aloysius is a family name and when you said he's sweet and roly-poly AND outgoing that was an obvious choice--well, maybe except for the sweet part.
Pronouncing that is much easier than it looks: Al-uh-WISH-us (you can call him Al). And Rosebud for two reasons--he looks like a girl (not a sled) and is a reference to the old Dick VanDyke show. Ritchie's middle name was Rosebud: from wikipedia: Richard "Ritchie" Rosebud Petrie, Rob's and Laura's son. (His middle name is an acronym for "Robert Oscar Sam Edward Benjamin Ulysses David," all members of Rob's and Laura's families.)
I bet you wished you'd pulled another name out of the naming pool!
Nope Mari, I'm glad I picked your name! I LOVE your choice. It's perfect for our pretty little boy.
Aloysius Rosebud Petrie, how do you do?
