I know t is way too young, but I want to name it and I’d like to try and give it a correct gender name. Thanks!!!!

    Absolutely no way to tell. How about a gender neutral name?

    Names like Rocky, Crusher, Sully, Pebbles, Bam Bam all work... you have many years until the true sex can be verified.

    Have Fun!

    I pick names I like or names that seem to suit the animal. I've had female cats named Spencer and Sterling in the past. Gender names don't mean much here.
