How Do You Pick The Right Name?
Here’s an important question: how do you know if you’ve picked the right name for your owl?
These tips can help narrow down your search:
- Is it easy to say? Some names are great on paper but tough to pronounce in everyday life. Before you become set on a name, make sure it rolls off the tongue because after all, you’ll be saying it many times once the owl joins your family!
- Does it fit your owl? Check to see if the name matches your owl’s personality and appearance before committing to a name.
- Say it out loud. Can you imagine saying the name out loud? If not, then it’s not the right choice. Move on and select something more appropriate.
- And finally, trust your gut. When you find the right name, you’ll know it!
