    Merry and Pippin were not brothers in Lord of the Rings. They are called HazmaT suits. I hope this helps. My question is 149 Roni. My name is Veronica and Roni is my nickname and my parents decided to spell it the way it is in my name, veRONIca. I am just curious if you choose Roni as in Maca…. Roni or a different reason? Me and my family have been having this debate since we came across your post. We have been looking for names For my new companion, an orange and white boy Lol

    Please let me know.. thanks for all the ideas. I had many of the same….. but not my own nickname lol

    We had an outside cat who had kittens, but only one made it, but unfortunately it was an orange female cat, so we struggled on finding a name. The best thing to do is to wait and find out their personalities, it will help a lot… I am honestly positive it will be a great idea!!!
