Spoiler:
Gaccabirdie was a name invented by my son. It refers to a very abstract 'bird' shaped toy (¿batter ball? methinks they are called),

tied with a string to a bamboo stick.

The gaccabirdie is jerked, dragged, dandled, dangled, etc. in front of the cat to strengthen skills of ambush, pouncing, striking, foot-paw pommelling, dental strangulation and asphyxiation, in the event of a visit by a nasty rodentine mooshka.

Zil ngi kë, zëra nmiu kho, hum, ang ma ke ni ro iuër'en thua rui'l Zueminir'u a, ië.
She is named for the stars, because I adopted her the day after the Geminid meteor shower.

(Ia, vol nmiu a ä uë, hu Zërae dah zë.)
(Also because it makes "disaster" an appropriate nickname.)

Spoiler:
...I did not expect the Aster-Disaster pun to translate well. But Zëra is the corresponding article for nouns of class #14, with a plural suffix, referring back to zil "the stars"; Zërae is the verb tëra "to suffer" with a nominalizing (putting it in class #24) circumfix, meaning "great calamity". This is entirely unplanned and I shall consider it a good omen.
Edit: Substituted a string instrument for a French interjection.
