100+ Cute and Funny Bird Names (From Mr. Beaks to Whistler)


Claudia has been creating content one post at a time for more than seven years and writes about a variety of subjects.

Growing up, birds freaked me out a little bit, but then I got to know "Pickles" the parakeet that a friend of the family had, and I really fell in love.

Like the other birds I've met in my lifetime, he had such a terrific personality—he was playful and mischievous and extremely talkative and inquisitive. But like most other pets, he also had a not-so-nice side when he was ready for his nap. He could get a real sour expression, which is why they named him Pickles. It was perfect for him.

If you are thinking about getting a bird or just got one, then you are probably thinking about names for them. Picking a name for your new friend isn't easy, and you want to make sure it's just right since they'll have it a long time.

These Lists Have Any Feathered Friend Covered

To help you pick something perfect out, the lists are broken down into two major groups:

  • Tropical/Exotics
  • Barnyard (yes, you can name your new duck . many people do)

Then each group is broken down by types of names:

  • Cute, Funny, and Wacky
  • Famous

Along the way, you'll learn some fun facts, find a list of other types of famous birds, and even get ideas for naming a pair of birds. Take a look and, hopefully, by the end of the article, you'll have the ideal name for your new pal.

Names for Barnyard Birds

A coworker of mine is a farmer, and I asked her once if she named her chickens. She said that when she was younger, she did—and even now, she'll name some of her favorites.

Around my area, more and more backyard chickens are being kept as pets, and they all have names, so you're going to need to find a good one that will stand out.

Really nice.. Thank you for sharing..

The Logician from now on on July 18, 2018:

Excellent hub page - lots of information!

I have an African Grey who talks up a storm. His name is Kabul because his previous owner’s son was serving in Kabul, Afghanistan when he named him. I couldn’t change his name because when he speaks he speaks in the third person. Kabul go nite nite, Kabul go out to play... whenever I see hubbers write their profiles in the third person all I can think is they are a bird brain.


Funny Cat Names

Meowy Poppins

When it comes to naming your cat, this isn’t just a super idea, it’s a supercalifragilisticexpialidocious idea! Also, much like their namesake, we guarantee that Meowy Poppins will love bags.

Copycat

This would be a great name if you have a cat who looks a lot like another cat in your household. Or for one who follows you around like a shadow.

Senator McFeelings

Professional, yet emotional.

Clawdia Kishi

Honor one of the original members of “The Baby-Sitters Club” by naming your cat after her. Bonus points if your cat has fashionable style, a love of hiding treats and an inferiority complex when it comes to her older sister.

Snugglebutt

This funny cat name is just the facts, ma’am. Every cat owner knows that all cats want to do is snuggle (and by snuggle we often mean put their butts in your face). So why not just name your kitty the truth?

Oda Mae Brown

Ever notice your cat staring out at nothing—or at something you can’t see? Consider naming her after the medium from “Ghost.” Hey, who’s to say that your cat isn’t seeing a spirit who wants to make sexy pottery with you?

Pierogi

For when your cat is so cute you want to eat her up with a side of sour cream. Get other food-inspired pet names.

Professor Cattywampus

According to Merriam-Webster, one meaning of catawampus is “fierce, savage, destructive.” Your cat can be all of those things, but they also went to grad school, and now they’re a professor. Also, why don’t you ever show up for their office hours?!

Mildred, Edith or Doris

Did you adopt an older lady cat? Give her a name that matches!

Batman

Holy lovable pet, Batman! Your new cat Batman is what goes bump in the night. Now, at last, Batman and Catwoman (that’s you) will get the love story they always deserved.

Aaron Purr

Yes, Aaron Burr Jr., the third vice president of these United States, became infamous when he shot and killed former Treasury Secretary Alexander Hamilton. But also he is the only character from Lin-Manuel Miranda’s musical juggernaut “Hamilton” whose name has a cat pun in it, so here we are.

Sir Meows-A-Lot

Oh my god, Becky. What does this cat want? Perfect for a cat who’s always meowing!
