Final Thoughts

What did you think of these names? Did any fit your fancy for your new lizard?

We hope you found this guide to lizard names inspiring, and hopefully you found at least a few ideas you like.

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

Once you have a list, gradually narrow it down one by one until you find the one that’s right.

Sometimes, though, it’s tough to narrow down the list when you have so many good ideas. In that case, these tips can help you quickly find the right option from your list of lizard 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 lizard?

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 lizard joins your family!
  • Does it fit your lizard? Check to see if the name matches your lizard’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. Ask any new pet owner: when you find the right name, you’ll know it!
