Parrots are amazing creatures, but naming them can be difficult. Some people think of parrot names as a fun game to play with friends and family during dinner or while watching TV. Others try to come up with the perfect name for their new feathered friend. Here are 14 creative parrot names that will have you in stitches!
1) Parrothead – This is a clever name for a green-cheeked conure who loves Jimmy Buffet’s music.
2) Toto – A great name for your African grey because it sounds like “too-too” which is what they say when they want something from you!
3) Tweetie Pie – This could work well if you just rescued a baby African grey from the wild.
Example of an idea for bullet points:
Ask your family and friends to give you their ideas or take out some time between errands, chores, etc., to brainstorm on this together
Go online for inspiration if you have a favorite color, animal, song lyric that reminds you of the parrot there are lists galore!
Pick two words that go well together or are somehow related to each other (e.g., Captain Hook)
14 Creative Parrot Names You’ll Have Laugh At To Completion 😂
Avian: The Latin word for bird
Beaky: Because parrots have beaks that they can open and close to eat their food or crack nuts with.
Birdy McBirdface: This is a play on the name Boaty McBoatface which was created by British naturalists in 2016 as a joke contest after Brexit (the UK’s exit from the European Union). Another option would be to change this slightly so it rhymes like Tweedledee and Tweedledum
– Captain Hook: If you’re going for something more traditional then Captain Hook might work! He’s not only known as the villainous pirate captain but he also has an infamous hook and parrots are known for their ability to imitate sounds
Chirpy: A chirp is a sound that many birds make, including the Parrot. And of course you can’t forget about Tweety from Looney Toons!
Fritz: This name would be great if you’re looking for something more original or have an unusual quirk like adding in your own last name at the end (i.e., Fritz Smith). It could also work as a play on words with “fritzy” meaning it’s broken or shorted out which might fit in nicely depending on what kind of content you want to create around this topic.
Polly: For those who prefer traditional names, Polly is a timeless name.
Sparrow: This might not work for everyone, but Sparrows are known for being finicky and very high-strung birds which could be used to contrast the calmness of parrots in your blog post.
Oscar: For those who want to play on words, this can also mean “a person with great talent.” There’s also the famous movie starring Shirley Temple called The Little Princess where one of her pets was an African Grey Parrot named Oscar!
Thelma and Louise: You don’t see these names any more so they would definitely stand out as original (though it may or not appeal to your readers). Plus you have two female protagonists making their way across the American landscape in a car.
Ella: A smart, talented parrot who is capable of speaking with humans and solving puzzles? This would be perfect for your blog post!
Maggie – For those who want to play on words, this can also mean “a person with great talent.” There’s also the famous movie starring Shirley Temple called The Little Princess where one of her pets was an African Grey Parrot named Oscar!
