I too think she is a torbie "patched tabby" , ie combo of tabby and tortie... Question is what sort of tabby... On one side it seems to be clearly spots, on the other not that clearly. Probably its a quite a mix in the fray, with both spotted tabby and a mackerel tabby... And I think mackerel gene dominates over spotted gene; but still, sometimes it shines through.
Its not impossible she has even a rosetted bengal as a far away ancestor, giving her the spotted tabby gene... A couple of spots on the right side looks almost rosetteish.

Observe, these sweet spots on the belly doenst prove anything, they are common for many tabbies.

I JUST got her today, so I’m still thinking of a name that suits her! She’s 4 1/2 months old.
Re naming. I would suggest something ukrainian. Perhaps someone of their combat medic. Either one martyr or one still alive....

Say, Olga after Olga Semidyanova...

Or Olga "Ptashka" - combat medic and singer from Azovstal.

Or even Sonja; the dog and defender of Azovstal - survived the siege, but further fate unknown.

Oops; the singer and combat medic from Azovstal is Kateryna... writing Olga was a mistake. Ps. Im not sure if Ptashka is her real surname, or if its a nick, because she is a good singer... Anyway, she is known as Ptashka, Kateryna. (the ukrainian spelling of Katerina)

She is a dsh spotted torbie I think. I also agree she has some Bengal ancestry likely because it looks like she’s getting sort of rosettes and her face reminds of those features that I have seen in Bengals. In the first kitten picture if she has a very light background which shows up more contrast for her pattern so I was thinking maybe silver I don’t know, probably not. Very beautiful baby 😻
