I forgot to say that I expect her regular name to be Maybe - those two-syllable-ending-on-a-soft-tone names have always seemed to work well. May will be her Attention! Name! for herding and agility.
Disclaimer: Please note that I did not pick the name "Taffy" and that Harley-cat's name ( a play on Dances With Bikers) was changed from "Yogurt".

My exwife has an exhusband who had a cat named "Stir Fry." I prefer Yogurt.

Maybe?
How about Mable, Maple, Mayflower, Maisie, or Made-in-Japan? I don't like Maybe. It's like you're not committed.

I'll bet she gets called all of these at one time or another, and more... Mayfly, Maybe Not, Mayhap, Mae West, Miss May, DisMay ...

It will be a great day when our schools get all the money they need and the Army has to hold a bake sale to buy a tank.

To reply, unleash the dog.

If you wanted to harsh my buzz, you've succeeded.

Awww! I really like it. When you break down the word, it's a sort of Zenlike command: May, be.

I like it, too. I tend to think of it as suggesting possibilities rather than lack of commitment. Maybe (DING!) it's because of that "may" "be" thing you're pointing out. I also think it's a nice sounding word, which is a good thing, too.
Also, there was a character named "Maeby" on the very fabulous "Arrested Development," and she was pretty great.

That the way I looked at it. Frankly, the connotation of non- commitment didn't cross my mind.

Yes! It is a most excellent name for a confident explorer, which is, I think, a combination of qualities that Matt is hoping for.

And it's got lots of potential for nicknames.

I never saw the it, because I was living in a television black hole when it was on. I'm restarting my Netflix account at the end of the month, though (yay!), so I'll try to remember to add it. Summer is *so* not the time to take a Netflix break. Ugh. Praise be for Man vs. Wild, or I wouldn't have anything to watch.

I don't see it, not in that way. I see it as positive potential; the world is your oyster and all that jazz.
