|Classics names for cats

We're Classicists and we're bitter...
female kitten recently adopted from the Tri-Valley SPCA (photos taken by Charles, faithful servant to the cats and dogs)
I named her Sosipatra after the famous philosopher (from Eunapius' Lives of the Philosophers and Sophists). Once I get a philosopher cat, if it's a female cat, I'll name her that or perhaps even Sappho or Corinna, and if it's a male, perhaps Plato, Aristotle, Zeno, or maybe even Diogenes? Diogenes would fit if he tried to fit into like a small space like a box or something, like Sophie's philosopher cat did. (Please ask Sophie what happened, it's an extremely cute story!)
Sigh, I desperately need a cat to keep me company and teach me some wisdom.
