Why is it, when we buy a dog, bird, cat or even a rabbit, we immediately have a page full of names ready to bless our new best friends with?
Not only do we have an abundance of quirky ideas to engrave on their collars, but we also have fun imaginative reasons and stories that follow.
We’ve all heard the story of the dog named Lucky, who was saved from the animal shelter, or the ol’ tabby cat that goes by the designation “Whiskers”, however, it’s not as common to stumble upon tales attached to pet lizards.
Maybe it’s well past time that our scaly friends were afforded some imaginative monikers of their own.
The First Step: Getting to Know Your Lizards Personality
The cool thing about this is when you decide to purchase a lizard, more often then not you will have choices. Whether you’re buying from a pet store or a breeder, generally you’ll get the opportunity to examine potential, and ultimately make a decision whichever takes your fancy.
This can go a long way into helping you find a name that suits your little buddy.
For example: There is a native lizard to Australia called a Goanna. These lizards are quite large and have been known to be brazen enough to chase humans. For me, any easy name for a pet goanna would be Godzilla! Ferocious, powerful and a fitting name for the giant reptile. And let’s be honest, who’s going to mess with someone who has a pet Godzilla?
But let’s take a look at some other possibilities.
Maybe your lizard enjoys attention, like a celebrity it’s only fitting he has a famous name.
- Jim Morrison – lead singer of rock band The Doors who had the alias The Lizard King.
- Rango – lead character in the animated kids film of the same name. Voiced by Johnny Depp
- Blue – Velociraptor from Jurassic Park.
Names for our pets can also be an extension of our own personalities. Are you a little nerdy? Do you enjoy video games, comic books or novels? Pop culture is full of ideas to draw from.
Who hasn’t heard of Yoshi and Bowzer from Mario Bros? Or Killer Croc from the Batman comics? Komodo Joe (Crash Bandicoot), Doc Connors (Spider-Man). The list goes on.
Although your pets name doesn’t necessarily need to have a meaning behind it, it can be rewarding to build a back story when you’re showing them off to your friends.
Below is a compilation of names broken down into groups that may inspire you to get creative and discover something unique that perfectly describes your lizard.
