Our current four are Nick and Sandy (Nicholas and Alexandra), Jane and Lottie 
(Lady Jane Grey and Princess Carlotta from a Dorothy Dunnett historical 
novel).  When Nick was a 
kitten we also had his sister named Nora, but she died and we acquired Sandy, 
who is
his niece - offspring from another litter from the same mother.  
Previous cats have included T.S. (Eliot); a mackeral tabby with white feet 
and front, who just appeared one day; Phineas Finn (Trollope character), a 
classic tabby known as Finny
and his brother Domino (because he was black with two white spots on his 
tummy.  At 
the same time we had Clover, the red female who had so many kittens, and 
Spike, a
grubby kitten someone's dog, literally, brought in. The kids named him Spike 
his short, stubby tail stuck straight up like one.  His kittens by Clover 
included Nelly 
(Naily) who was a dear tortie - ugly as sin but one of the sweetest cats 
ever.  We found
good homes for most of Clover's 17 kittens, but kept Nelly and one of her 
red tabby sons by Finny named Parkay (he wasn't butter).  That takes me back 
about 30 years.  There have been others, but you get the idea...
