Final Thoughts

We hope you found inspiration for picking the perfect name for your new bird.

When naming a pet, it’s always a good idea to write down any idea that piques your interest and then narrow it down from there.

These tips can help you quickly find the right option from your list of bird names.

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 bird?

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 a day once the bird joins your family!
  • Does it fit your bird? Check to see if the name matches your bird’s personality and appearance before committing to a name.
  • Say it out loud. Can you imagine calling for your bird with this name? If not, then it’s not the right choice. Move on and select something more appropriate.
  • And finally, trust your gut. Ask any new bird owner: when you find the right name, you’ll know it!
