Why Alfred is so popular? I’m interested for science purpose :nerd:

YEAH, We are here for science! :bulb: So, besides from being a really cute name for a kitten, I must tell you there’s a few famous Alfreds we could talk about here. 

First and foremost, Alfred Thaddeus Crane Pennyworth, know in pop culture as Bruce Wayne’s valet. After a varied career, Alfred was employed as the Wayne family valet when Bruce Wayne's parents were killed. Alfred raised the little batman and reluctantly aided him in his quest to become a hero. His many skills— ranging from cooking to medicine—make him Batman's best ally

 

 

Secondly, we have AN ASTRONAUT! I mean, how cool is that? Alfred Worden was a NASA Astronaut & Apollo 15 Command Module Pilot. His work is known to be unique and prestigious, Worden logged more than 295 hours in space.

Last but not least, we have Alfred Bernhard Nobel, a swedish chemist, engineer, and industrialist who invented dynamite and other more powerful explosives! He is also known as the founder of the Nobel Prize, the world’s most prestigious prize for intellectual services rendered to humanity. 

 

I know the name suggestions are done, but i would also add Albert (as in for Einstein) and Alan (as in for Turing). And why not a girl’s name? Like Grace, reminding us of Rear Admiral Grace Murray Hopper, our most esteemed computer scientist and programmer! 

What’s the community take on this? Let me know who’s your favorite Alfred! :joy:


Thank you for the explanation! :D

From 3007 members only 30 have voted so far...that makes 2977 possible votes for VeeAmy! :grin:

By the way; I would say that the cat is a Tortoiseshell cat (hopefully the correct translation for the german Schildpatt). So a female name for her would fit much better as male Tortoiseshells are very rare :sweat_smile:

If it sits equally split for too long maybe a week long final poll between the two? (Though come on people, Vote Bob!)
