Pet names | Birds by characteristics

Here are some ideas for great pet names. Birds named by color and character sometimes have the best names. There is also a list of names for bird couples.

When you get a new bird don't worry if you don't have a name prepared already. Maybe it is better. When you get to know your bird a little bit maybe it will inspire you to think of a really great name.

Sometimes you will be inspired by the color. You can name it by the color of some fruit you like, that is the same color as the bird.

One more tricky thing when it comes to naming a pet you are not familiar with is that maybe you will get the bird's gender wrong. So it would be funny to have a bird called Batman only to find out it is more of a Batgirl.

Here is a list of some names you can use to name the pet by its character or other qualities:

  • Albert for smart birds
  • Beauty
  • Busy for birds that love exploring all day long
  • Cotton for nice birds
  • Daisy for gentle birds
  • Fred or Yoyo for birds that love to dance on the perch
  • Fluffy for fluffy looking birds
  • Google for a bird that loves to sit on your computer
  • Kissy for the ones that like to kiss you
  • Lazy for birds that don't like flying around too much
  • Polly for the ones that love eating cookies
  • Sweetie
