I want to name my cat
Nataly
maloos, nAzi, pishi, nAz nAzi
Explanation:
The above words are the alternative names for 'gorbeh'; they are mostly used as the proper names for pet cats in Iran. The Iranian cats are famous in the world and known as Persian cats!

The coomon word for 'cat' is 'gorbeh' as my colleague has already proposed. However as names for cats, I propose the ones above or 'barfi', 'sepid', 'pashmAloo',...
