Cute Hoot needs a name

Here's a lovely little fellow (somehow all of my Hoots are male, even the ones with girls' names).

Isn't he cute? He's made from a variety of fabrics I've picked up in Spotlight, online, and had in the stash. The polka dots are a Michael Miller, the reverse side is an Anna Maria Horner. I can't remember what the front is! His ears and feet are Michael Miller too...

But for some reason, I just can't think of a name for him. This is pretty unusual. Normally as I'm creating a softie, the name will pop into my head without too much trouble. Usually I get some inspiration from the fabrics, or the expression in the button eyes, or the overall look.

For example, this weekend at the Shirt and Skirt Market I'll have a new "Miss Havisham" Hoot, a new "Orange Blossom" Hoot, "Tthere's A Butler In My Garden" Hoot, and "The Turquoise Terror".

But blow me down, I CANNOT think of a name for this one. And I don't know why.

Have you any suggestions? Let me know what you think, and you could have a Hoot named in your honour!

He looks like and Austin Powers hoot to me! That retro fabric on his tummy does it for me!

Have you already had a Marooned Hoot? It works two ways, both for colour and the not-quite-nautical stripes.

Or maybe he's Plumstruck Hoot.
