When you’re planning on bringing home a new pet, besides gathering all the necessary supplies, one of the first things to do is give them a name. Sometimes, it comes easy, but other times, there are just too many names to choose from, and you end up getting swamped with the choices.

If you’re about to become the owner of a new parrot but aren’t sure where to begin with a name, we might just have the perfect one for you on this list.

After all, parrots are far too unique to get stuck with a typical parrot name like Polly!

How to Name Your Parrot

Here are a few ideas on how to come up with a name for your parrot in case you don’t find anything here. For starters, you can pick one based on your parrot’s appearance. You can name your green Amazon parrot Jade, or your yellow pacific parrotlet could be Eggs or Banana.

You can also look at your parrot’s personality for ideas. Think about video games or your favorite food and drinks. Consider your favorite artists, including musicians, bands, authors, and characters from books, TV, and movies.

As you can see, you can find inspiration from almost anything—it just takes imagination and time to think about it!

Use Your Imagination!

Now that you’ve had a look at the possibilities, you’ll also know that the possibilities are endless! Once you have a couple of candidates, try saying them out loud and more than once. You might find that some of these names don’t sound quite right and might even sound a bit goofy. Since some parrots can live up to 80 years, you’ll need to ensure that you like using it!

You can also think about adding an honorific or title to your parrot’s name, like Baron Blueberry or Professor Pistachio.

So, take a gander at the following titles, and consider adding one to the name of your choice:
  • Baron
  • Baroness
  • Captain
  • Colonel
  • Dame
  • Doctor
  • Emperor
  • Empress
  • General
  • Her Majesty
  • His Majesty
  • King
  • Madame
  • Miss
  • Mister
  • Prince
  • Princess
  • Professor
  • Queen
  • Senator
  • Sergeant
  • Sir

Conclusion

The best way to come up with a name is to get to know your parrot. Understanding their personality can be a great way to come up with a good name. You can give them a serious name or something tongue-in-cheek, like Marty McFly!

You can consider using an online thesaurus for more name possibilities (like looking up the word orange if you have an orange parrot so you can see all the words associated with that color).

Overall, we hope that we’ve helped you out and that you enjoy many years with your new, beautiful parrot!
