Kitten names

So these are my Siberian kittens. They are coming home to live with me on the 29th of July. 

This is my little girl. The breeder named her Monica. I originally wanted two boys - they grow bigger and they are reportedly more friendly. But actually Monica was such a charmer. She was the most happy to sit on my lap and play. Then she totally relaxed when I tickled her. So much so that she gave her first purrs (the Breeder said she hadn't purred yet) and stretched out between my knees, face planted down and fell asleep. She kept rolling about in her sleep like a baby and even had twitchy paws as if she was dreaming about chasing things. Super cute. I just had to pick her. 

This is Chrstopher. He is the boy I wanted. He is actually a blue tabby so a different colour to all the others. Christopher wasn't so bothered about meeting me, but he was a lot calmer than his other brother Cormack who mewed pitifully whenever I picked him up. I hope Christopher will grow into a big cuddly boy and get on well with little Monica. 

The problem is that I am getting used to referring to them as Monica and Christopher. Christopher isn't a  cat name to me and ideally I wanted to name them both myself. I am currently trying to pick new names for them. 

Here are some ideas so far:

Lana (after Lana del rey)
Lyra (from Phillip Pullman's Dark materials trilogy)
Arya (From game of Thrones)

Ziggy (Stardust)
Eddie (after my Great Uncle)
Arthur (of the round table)
Moses (getting all Biblical)

So far I think I'm gonna go for either
Lyra and Ziggy
Arya and Bailey

What do you think?

Some good choices
But I still think Mega Shark and Giant Octopus suit them really well...
