    Default Parrot Names.

    I purchased a Blue and Gold Macaw to reward myself for surviving yet another Tax season.

    It's currently being handfed by my breeder, and should be home by June.

    I am very excited, but I have a slight dilemma, WTF should I name him/her/it ?

    I amassed a list of names over the past month, and I'd really like to hear/read your input as to my list, OR any *interesting* names you have heard over the years.

    So far here is my list:

    Mowgli
    Adderal
    Churchill
    Tikki
    Yoshi
    Quimico
    Rio
    koopa
    Sargent Pepper
    Arco
    Fin
    Lexapro
    Luna
    Bulbasaur
    Nugget
    Stilo
    Dino
    Pepe
    Nico

    Any input???

    PS- OH HAI ERRBODY

    By "breeder" are you referring to your mom, dad, or scientist via petri dish?

    Let's name it Ed, as macaws look pretty, but are generally not helpful...

    NPH
    Iago
    Blunderbus

    Oh my...I thought Ed was a guy; whodathunkit? I have to say, her picture is pretty much rough Trade, rode hard and put up wet one time too many.

    You didn't say male or female, but I'd try to find something Spanish since these birds come from South America. They are gorgeous birds.

    My vote is for Chulo

    Although the name Cholo/Chola would be hilarious, given my workplace (And the fact that I WILL be bringing my parrot to work) I don't think my clients would appreciate the name....

    I'm not sure what gender it is yet-

    MAYBE I SHOULD GO WITH RUPAUL !

    Howdy Howdy Prada,

    I wish I could get back into Macaws.... (sigh), just not home enough to have what amounts to having an unsupervised 3 year old, being at home alone all day.

    If it were me, I would visit the breeder as often as possible to get a read on it's personality and to get in on the hand feeding (if possible), and play time. That way when it's time to go home, you will be a calming known factor to the new surroundings. YOur face, your voice and your smell will help a lot with getting used to the new place. But if you already have birds, you know all this and I'm blathering.

    Now for names....
    Prada wanna crac.... er... no... sorry had to suggest it.
    Blu <--- no no no no no! And no Goldie either....
    Bear (partial to this one myself)
    Crank
    Damn It Jef!
    Gizmo
    MonkeyButt... an endearing little nick name you call them, when they chew up window sills and crown molding. You Stupid little MonkeyButt!
    Naz
    Raja, Ra, Ray
    Spice
    Wiz
    Wulf (in honor of my Poppa)
    Whiskey
    Zeus , Zulu or Zen

    I will hunt you down and make you eat bird seed for a week, if you name this bird "Pretty Bird"

    No Pokemon names unless it has a personality like a Pokemon, and if you must name it after a Pokemon.... it must be Charizard.
