New name for Wilbur

I've decided I'm most likely going to change his name. He came with the name Wilbur, and I just do not like human names for my animals. I usually name my animals something to do with mythology, but every mythological name I come up with just sounds too dignified for him, he's such a goofball (there's Loki, but I know so many people who call themselves that). For background, here are my cat's names:
Pywacket:Witch's familiar animal
Rhea: Zeus' mother (I did not name her)
Selkie: A Celtic myth of seals who have the souls of drowned humans (she's grey and chubby and slow moving, reminds me of a seal).
Pooka: A Celtic shape shifting trickster spirit (Selkie's brother, I hand raised them both from 1 week old).
Kirara: A japanese shape shifting cat



Fledermaus because he looks like a bat with his huge ears

Kodama from Princess Mononoke because he's cute and shakes his head (I use these as emoticons on a message board I run):

FizzGig from the Dark Crystal because he's such a little nut:

Nibber from Futurama because it looks like him and it sounds like Wilbur:
