    Default looking for name ideas for a male crested gecko


    LOG IN TO CLOSE THIS AD   


    I know that I already posted a thread similar to this one but I just wanted to make a new one.

    For some reason the crested gecko I received has still not been named because I am indecisive. I have had him for quite some time now and I have just been referring to them as “the gecko”. If you have any name ideas, please feel free to tell me because all feedback is deeply appreciated.

    I hate naming other people's pets. With my own, usually a name just comes to me as I learn more about their personality, or the circumstance in which I got them. A couple of mine are acronyms (see signature).

    Do you like "people" names? Do you have a favorite TV show, movie, food or hobby? A variation of their Latin name? A favorite plant in the terrarium (i.e. "pothos", etc.)?

    If nothing else, google "baby names" and see if anything strikes your fancy.

    How about naming your crestie after a flower, planet, ocean, herb, or bird? The possibilities are endless.

    I am honestly so indecisive. I am good if I can think of a name before adopting the animal, which is weird, I know. When I first received him, I originally wanted to call him Diablo but I didn’t know that that fit so I considered other options but I now just refer to him as “the gecko” because I have no clue what to name him. While typing, I saw the recommendation of a favourite television show, I don’t really have a favourite show but I enjoy brooklyn nine nine and I thought of the name peralta which translates to “high rock” in Latin which makes sense for a lizard who likes to be high up. I am not sure though, I will have to think about other ideas also. Thank you for the suggestions.

    Have you had "Hidey" long?

    Hidey's former name was Hygge. Nobody ever knew how to pronounce it, and besides that, she hides all the time. The only time I really ever see her is if I'm up past 11:00, or when I'm cleaning her tank. A friend of mine said, "That's a pretty hidey gecko you have," and so I changed her name.

    P.S. I like Peralta too, for your gecko, ccrested! You won't find any others with the same name, and I think the meaning of it just fits!

    The problem is, I am extremely indecisive so I second guess everything. For some reason I just don’t feel like it suits him. Yes, it is a unique and cool name for a crested gecko since it translates to “high rock” from Latin and crested gecko enjoy being up high but I still don’t 100% know. Thank you for both of your guys’ support. Here is to hoping that I find a name that I like and find suits him. You never know, he might end up being peralta in the end.
