    I named Bean after astronaut Alan Bean who was the fourth person to walk on the moon. I also like the reference to Bean in Orson Scott Card's Ender's Game books.

    I had been intending to name him
    Orion Caught A Ride With The Moon (lyrics from "Tear in Your Hand" by Tori Amos)

    then it occurred to me that
    Orion Take To The Sky (again, Tori Amos)
    would be rather nice as well, and less to write on entry forms.

    (Steve's registered name is Orion Never Seen Blue, again with the Tori Amos)

    From an Ender's Game standpoint,
    Orion The Enemy's Gate Is Down
    isn't bad. I like the literary nerdiness of it.

    I've also been looking at space terms

    Orion Go For Launch
    Orion Escape Velocity

    Someone suggested
    Orion Shoot The Moon
    which is a nice nod to the gambling theme of this litter

    For inspiration:

    I like Orion Take To The Sky and Orion Go for Launch the best! I really like Orion Caught A Ride With The Moon, too, but it is a bit long (just depends on if that matters to you, really).

    STOP STOP I LOVE HIM SO MUCH STOP

    I love Take To The Sky, Shoot the Moon, and Go For Launch all three. Though the superstitious sports person in me thinks "go for launch" might be asking for trouble... I gotta admit I'm quite partial to sticking to the Tori Amos theme.

    Omfg!!! Bean is so cute! I have never seen a merle like him... never. And he has the sweetest face. I can't wait to see how he turns out. :)

    I definitely like Shoot The Moon best. But it's all you!

    Those pix are too cute! Especially the first :)

    I like Caught A Ride With The Moon. One of my dog's is It's Only Rock N Roll, so length doesn't really bother me.

    I like Take To The Sky and Go For Launch! I really like the fact that the former is also related to Steve's registered name.
