I tried to find a similar sounding name to the rescue kitten I adopted. She was originally called “Felon” (yuck!) So we went through Helen then to Ellen and finally to Ella and with her new surname, she became “Ella McFearsome” though technically it should have been “Elle McFearsome” but then she’d have to relearn the sound of an entirely new first name.
