I think Romanov is an excellent choice.  Seems fitting too, since R. in the
Merlin Conspiracy needed to be cured/cared for before he could manifest his
vast powers.

Well, Romanov is Russian (name, not the dwj character, that is)...
My friend (who's miaowing mad!) says the cat is not a Russian Blue because
he's not slinky enough (or something), but that his eyes aren't yellow
enough for him to be a British Blue. I really don't care; I suspect that
he's just a particularly gorgeous moggy.

I take RBW's point about Lancelot, but the poor beast has been neutered
(which I agree with in principle but can't help feeling sorry for him)

Benvenuto means well-come, doesn't it- which is quite appropriate.
