What to name them, what to name them...

So! wrote to a cattery last week, to see if they were the one I'd contacted before the computer died in late December.
They were not.
But they have two count them two wee russian blue boys that they're looking to house together, because 'they are really quite enthralled with each other'.

I should be meeting the cats within the next couple weeks, and assuming all goes well, handing over a check to the person who's been raising them so that she'll get them altered and give them to me.

But what to call them? Sure, in the dark all cats are grey, but 'cat' doesn't seem an appropriate way to identify one or the other of them.
Your thoughts/suggestions?
