Dino (B&W Tegu): Obviously,...from the Flinstones, I remember when I was little I had a lot of the stuffed toys plus one big one that I would always sit or lay on while watching the cartoon :grin:.

White Boys "Powder" (APBT): White Boy, because he's white (w/eyes that change colors)and he's a boy :lol:. Powder, because I love the movie "Powder" (if anyone remembers it) and because I adopted him right before I switched from active duty to reserves while I was in Colorado. His eyes and coat remind me of the snow and blue skies there,...good times ;). So,..it fits but I call him Powder. When ever I say White Boy he looks at me like I'm crazy and he's slow doin what I say. As soon as I call him Powder he's up, body waving, tail waging with that pitbull smile, ready for what ever :grin:.

Those are my two boys for now,...but two new babies pending.

My Tegus Name is Shredder.. When we got her she was in this tiny little plastic container :( and she was tearing everything apart trying to get out... idk it just kinda stuck... I also have a Ball Python named Kahlua because at the time my boyfriend and i were on a white russion kick and love Kahlua.. and she is really dark like the alcohol.. i think Kahlua really grew into her name... We have only had Shredder for about 2 months now so im still not really sure if her name actually fits her personality yet...

Leopard geckos

Sahara and Tahara (Tangerine and albino): Sahara got her name because I instantly thought of desert when I got them and Tahara because she's more dominate. As far as handling, Tahara is a doll and Sahara does not like to be picked up or touched. Another interesting thing is that Sahara likes to jump and I mean jump far (never seen that in a leopard gecko). My newest addition is named Princess because I got her at about 5 months and she was super tiny and she's gorgeous.

Blue Tegu

I named him Cruz because I don't know what sex it is yet and I went to a site and seen all these names and Cruz was a latin unisex name that meant cross and tegus are from Latin America so it stuck.

03-22-2010, 10:17 PM
Toki - B&W Argentinian Tegu is named after Toki Wartooth the rhythm guitarist in the deathmetal band Dethklok.
Scorch - Bearded dragon is named after Ben Stillers Scorcher action hero character from Tropic Thunder. Also Scorch sounds like what a dragon would do to you
Nadine - Columbian Boa. IDK if it is even a girl, my son named her.
Mickey & Minnie - Min pins - when we got Mickey he was the runt, only weighed 1lb and looked like a rodent. I wanted to name him Mighty Mouse & even though he was my surprise birthday present (10 years ago) I got over ruled by the kids who were 6 & 3 because they didn't know who Mighty Mouse was. Oh well

04-16-2010, 07:21 PM
Jaba - Blue tegu, named after the blob from star wars (my bf named it, not sure if it's going to stick though)

Remington Steel (B&W Tegu) - We needed a gender neutral name and my husband and I are both avid hunters.
Smallz (Giant Tegu) - My husband thought it would be funny because he's a giant
Mr. Bean (Het. Ghost BP) - He was sold to us as a Butter Ghost Het so his name became Mr. Butter Bean
Mrs. Bean (Het. Ghost BP) - Bought solely as Mr. Bean's gf, so she's Mrs. Honey Bean
Shamu (Anery Kenyan Sand Boa) - It's obvious
Morpheus (JCP) - Dunno, that's the name the best friend picked out and it just stuck
Miko (Malamute) - He's named after the raccoon in Pocahontas.

two beardies - riley and terri. terri is named after my boyfriend's mom (she had just recovered from chemo when we got them), and riley's original name was charlie, but that turned out to be the same name as my boyfriend's dad...so he changed it lol.
snowy, blizzy, and frosty - my west highland terries, cuz they are white lol.
zoey - my basenji/terrier mix...it sounded zonky and crazy, just like she is.
olli and cali - twin calico cats of mine. olli was originally oliver, we thought she was a boy.
harvy - new kitten with half black whiskers and half white, named after harvey dent.

previous pets...
siscko - my fire skink, when i got him, i was skipping school and had to hide behind a sisco truck from someone i knew from school lol. he passed away less than a year ago.
shoney - my schnieder skink, she was gold like sunshine and honey, so i mixed it lol. i sold her last september.
smokey - my old gray long haired cat. he died of old age.
boots - my old gray tabby with all white "boot" feet. we think she died of poison or venom..

dry bones for an albino/snow tegu, from super mario brothers. =D

05-12-2010, 06:22 PM
Turbo, my first b/w, I thought she was just a big slow lizard until I put her in the grass, and it was like she had a turbo button because she was FAST lol
Torque, my second b/w that I got as a rescue. At first I named him Lil' Bruizer cause he was in pretty rough shape, but then as he grew and regained his health he needed a new name, and Torque went well with Turbo, and also fit him.
Tango and Cash, newest b/w's. also rescues. My boyfriend named them after a movie which I don't recall the name of....I was gonna stick with my theme and name them Horsepower and RPM but he said no....hehehe naw I wouldn't have
really done that to them:)

05-13-2010, 01:56 PM
Cleopatra: Golden tegu..Just felt right gold made me think of Cleopatra. I call her Cleo for short
Damien: Columbian tegu...Because the name means to pursue, subdue, and to kill....He was evil when I got him. I had my share of bites. He was a big baby when he died.He is pictured with me on my profile.
Minna: leopard gecko She is my little girls and she named her.
I have yet to name my new B&W..Names just seem to come to me. If not my little girl picks them.

Bossk (Male Red Tegu) - Names after the lizard looking bounty hunter from Star Wars.
Lux (Leopard Gecko) - Unit of measuring light, just thought it sounded cool.
Agent Orange (Male Bearded Dragon) - Cause he's has orange on his and he's a secret agent, also a chemical weapon used during Vietnam.

Set (Male Ball Python) – Egyptian god of Chaos
Dogg (Female Albino Pattern less Burmese) (R.I.P) - Thought it would be funny, but it lost its novelty pretty quick

06-06-2010, 09:58 PM
Calypso - fem calico cat, aside from Cali being a popular calico name, Calypso is the name of a nymph that lived on an island and took someone captive (forgot who) and boy is this cat clingy.
Nova - fem blue merle aussie, novas are exploding stars as far as I know, and it fits the aussie personality.
Icee & Diva - 2 fem ferrets, one is white & silver, Icee is sorta a temp name. The other is named diva because when she was little, if she got mad at me she'd give other people kisses and ignore me.
Hakkar - boy rainbow boa, named after the snake god thing in World of Warcraft.
Zeke- hopefully boy b/w Argentine tegu, haven't gotten him yet, but Zeke is the name of a robo dinosaur from a show I used to watch when I was younger. I thought it fits. :)

I used to have 2 more snakes, a central american boa & an albino rosy boa, named Ekans & Corona. (From pokemon & corona means crown, but it's also a part of the sun. It fit, he was bright! I thought he was a girl till I sold him though. Would be a good name for a girl red tegu! )

06-11-2010, 03:53 AM
geu - tegu

dj- blue tounge skinks name

07-12-2010, 01:35 PM
So we have decided on a name for our B&W Tegu........Diesel/Dezie. I love the name Dezie and that is what it will be unless we find out it is a male then we will switch it to Diesel (maybe, I still like Dezie but my hubby says that is not a boys name). We wanted a name that we can switch if need be that isn't too far off of the original name. Here are some names we considered: Marley (was a close second), Charlie, Tank, Bindi, and that was about it.

07-18-2010, 07:40 PM
my columbian tegu is Rampage (keeping name wether male or female)

10-08-2010, 05:58 PM
Our newest tegu is Hook because he has the slightest little hook at the end of his tail.

10-12-2010, 04:07 AM
I don't have my tegu yet but when I do I want to name him Lucien :)

10-12-2010, 07:57 AM
Oooh, I love that name!

So, for all of our reptiles...

B/W tegu - Boszki (had a friend with a cat of the same name; his personality is starting to resemble that cat's)
All American tegu - Oscar the Grouch (well, he's kind of a butt, so it just kind of fits)
Beardie - Spaz (totally self explanatory)
Beardie - Leonidas (was the name given to him by his previous owners who we got him from)
Ball Python - Moose (he's just so big and chill and relaxed and dumb-acting *grin*)
Ball Python - Lil' Bit (we hadn't named her and so just started calling her that since she's a baby; it kind of stuck)

RIP, Beardie - Knuckles (aka Kitteh; don't really know where the Knuckles name came from, as The Boyfriend already had her when we started hanging out, but the Kitteh part was a nickname that stuck)

10-12-2010, 01:21 PM
I totally love Spaz and Moose! Funny names nordica!

10-12-2010, 11:25 PM

Since I don't have a tegu... yet... I hope y'all don't mind me listing my leopard gecko... His name is Eros... after the greek God of Love and sexual desire. He was an anniverary present, and after my tortoise that spend the first 10 years of our marriage together died shortly beforeour 10th anniversary, I had to get another critter to fill the tank... you can't just leave a tank empty :) So Leos are suppose to live like 20-ish years so hopefully our marriage will last another 20-ish plus years as well. Plus he has the cutest heart shaped spot on his nose... See:
http://www.imagenerd.com/uploads/face_pic_2_1_1_-_copy-y9h3K.jpg http://www.imagenerd.com/uploads/361629826309_-_copy-ZAmsr.jpeg

First shot is his baby pix, second is at 10 mos old.

01-26-2011, 01:32 PM
OK, that is really cute! I've never kept leos but someone gave me a crestie last week.

Dog Shrink
01-26-2011, 02:52 PM
Thanks Laura. He's a really cute lil booger. Loads of personailty, loves to sit on your knee and watch tv, esp. House and Boardwalk empire :) He's litterbox trained too :) A real special lil dude. Cresties are a load of fun from what I hear and pretty easy to keep. Just make sure his temps don't go over 80 too often is what I hear the most. I belong to a really good gecko forum if you'd like the url I'd be happy to share it :) Eros is my first lizard since an anole I had when I was like 9. Before him it was tortoises and ball pythons (which my son has a ball named Loki :) mine was named Evillynn (not that she was evil. She just didn't like people sticking their hand in her bag. She would travel with me in my army medic bag) .

01-27-2011, 01:34 AM
Dio- I was looking at names online and thought Dio was really good, then the net week Ronny James Dio died and decided it was a sign that when Dio hatched that was supposed to be his name.
Smaug the axolotl- The hobbit was still fresh in my mind from reading it.

07-24-2011, 06:13 PM
Female Beardie- Bob (didn't know her sex)
Female Breadie- Marley (to match Bob)
Female Beardie- Mrs. Fat ( rescued her from morbid obesity)

Argentine b/w Zeus and Leonidas

Argentine All American's ( 1/4 blue, 1/4 red and 1/2 extrem giant ) Shakespeare and Venus

Argentine blue/red hybrid ( male ) Spatzi ( sweety, it's German )

I must say im not even sure on how to say that one xD
My Argentina B&W Tegu name is Tila <3

01-16-2012, 01:01 AM
I like the name Tila :) . Here is a video of Spatzi. Ther you can hear how to say his name.


01-16-2012, 11:15 PM
Aww I spatzi is cute as hell lol.
XD i didnt know we were talking about names of all our animals lol
And i seen your video about your lil tech you used to get your reptiles out of its cage xD
<-- I just used my wielding gloves to take Tila out because as long as I've had that lil girl
she was ready to wrestle with me while in her cage lol
Welp as i said I have

> Artemis : Florida King Snake.

Of all reptiles i've had that was the 2nd one to ever
die on me. First was when i was 14 now im 30 so

02-22-2012, 08:58 PM

Whenever I figure out which sex my tegu is, I can decide on the name. Right now, I am planning on naming it Max if it is a boy and Sadie if it is a girl. I am going with very cliche dog names because there is a whole lot of ignorance in the public. If people can relate a "giant scary lizard" to their pet at home.

03-03-2012, 09:52 AM
Guru is named after a hip-hop artist (rip), Rango is after the chameleon, Gimli is from LOTR (which I love dearly).
Guru was also Skwisgaar (metalocalypse) but that name was too long. Gimli was almost Zeratul (Starcraft)

04-14-2012, 12:33 AM
I named my b/w columbian Reptar because, for those have watched rugrats, he looks like their toy dinosaur Reptar

04-16-2012, 04:10 PM
OK lol we currently have a theme sort of:
Dumbledor (albino pacman frog): he just looks like he knows some stuff...
Harry(ball python): my son decided that the balls would be the good guys and the boas the bad guys cause the boas look "mean"
Fred(red rat snake): when i was little there was a red rat at this museum we went to and his name was fred and i was obsessed w/ him later my oldest son got a toy snake and it was red and w/out prompting named it fred and said it was a red rat snake... i just thought it odd so when fred happened upon us it made sense...
Snape(hypo het albino red tail boa): after harry potters snape obviously

My map turtle is Bubba as he was born retarded with a massive overbite like the dude in Forrest Gump (he also has one eye. I used to have Gump too but her nearly bullied Bubs to death)
My Gecko is called Pubert after the baby in Addams Family Values
My B=W Tegu is called Peachy, because otherwise I was going to call it Lee Majors after the Million Dollar Man (and Marge Simpson's favourite day-dream character) and that was just silly.

Valcore the bearded dragon, when I got it everyone kept doing the falcore yell from the never-ending story and it stuck, so I changed it a bit..
Panzer the box turtle, husband is military/history major and he moved and ate like a tank!
Cake the whites tree frog, from the band, the lyrics ” stays up late and gets up early”
Milford the tiger legged monkey frog, from arrested development because he always hides, like a Milford man they are never seen nor heard
Dante the corn snake, the patterns on him looked like fire though now he's getting bigger its stretching and losing it but he's still fiery so it fits
Achilles, Columbian, because I saw someone named their dog it and reptiles/amphibians are my Achilles heal!
Poe ball python, for Edgar Allen Poe...cause he's awesome..

We named our Argentine red tegu "MacGyver" because he is a cute little genius who can get out of any situation, but wouldn't hurt a fly (ok, maybe a fly wasn't the best example... yummm.) He is very smart, listens to verbal cues, and is always figuring out clever ways to climb up things.

...and because my wife is in love with Richard Dean Anderson. I was originally planning on naming him Worf (star trek), but was overruled and presented with the options of A) Jack O'Neill (stargate), or B) MacGyver (macgyver).

We have themed ours LoL...

I breed Crested Geckos and my colony are all name after Shakespeare Characters bc I am a a huge Shakespeare Fanatic, but there are too many to name LoL

Monitors: The monitors are all named after Mortal Kombat Characters (except for Sav)
Jade & Reptile: Green Tree Monitor pair
Katana & SubZero: Blue Tree Monitor Pair
Jax: Black Throat Monitor
Kabal: Black Throat Monitor
Fatality: Water Monitor

Juggernaut: Savannah Monitor (the only monitor not named after MK, but his back looks like Jugg Armor)

KeleKona: Chinese Water Dragon because Kelekona means Dragon in Hawaiian (I went to college in Hawaii and she was our first baby together)
Rupert: Silkie Beardie- Named after Stewies stuffed bear on Family Guy bc he's adorable
Bowser: Bearded Dragon- This one is really my little brother's beardie but he lives with us. He is named after Bowser from Mario
Drizella: RTB Female- We have 2 RTB and this one is a BIA BIG TIME, so her and the other are named after the Mean sisters from Cinderella
Anastasia: RTB Female- She's not as mean as the other RTB but still a feisty one
CUD: Normal BP- No idea LoL.. he's had it for over 13 years

Oh yes, and the fish: Breakfast, Lunch, and Dinner (haha, they are breeders and feeders)

We have more, but some of our newer critters don't have names yet!
Working on a theme for our retics and burms right now!

10-11-2012, 08:47 AM
I like those names. They are very unique. I like Shakespeare, too. This is why we named our All American Tegu Shakespeare :) .

Thinking of naming my new red tegu Loki since it likes to pretend to take the food I offer then make a break for the exit when it's close enough.

How funny. I have noticed that the name Loki is very popular now.

01-09-2013, 05:14 PM
Mine is named Loki too. I'm an Asatru pagan so it is close to me, and it describes my red one. Red= Fire, Loki was the god of fire, etc.

My black and white tegu: Origional name was Calypso, because I had a black throat named Thor and my boyfriends tegu is Athena and we wanted to keep the Greek thing going. Now we found he is a male and renamed him Zues.

04-05-2013, 04:11 AM
Thor is a Norse god lol

04-07-2013, 11:17 PM
Calypso. We love the Greek names, too. We have a Zeus and a Leonidas. We wanted to name our female Athena, too, but went with Venus.

Thor is a Norse god, and it is spelled "Zeus".

I'm a Hellenistic Norse Wiccan so I would know. :D That means my religion is a mix of Wicca, the same as Norse (With Thor, Freyja, and Odin, etc) and The ancient Greek religion (Zeus, Athena, Aphrodite, etc) Since it's my RELIGION not many people can beat me at it... :D

04-08-2013, 12:02 AM
It's OK Dillon. We don't expect any one to be perfect on here. I'm not ;) . I misspell things all the time. Most of the time it happens when I'm very tired. Then the next time I read my post I say to my self " what in the heck did you type ? " lol. It's no big deal.

04-09-2013, 05:43 PM
sorry to touch a little close to home there...
Thor was not a Greek God, but a grecian hero or something. Im not a greek history major haha i reallly dont know. But it fit and i liked it. So i named him Thor.
And yes I know that show you spell Zeus. I just type fast and dont really proof read haha Like she said, no big deal

04-10-2013, 09:30 AM
Don't be sorry. Here is some info on Thor :) . I like that name and what the name means.

I wasn't mad, just correcting. One person I knew LITERALLY thought Zeus was spelled Zyas. I was just trying to help: :)

Sorry to say, but Thor is NOT A Greek God or Grecian Hero. He is only present in mythology through being a Norse god who is the son of Odin, and who wields Mjolnir, a hammer. I know he isn't in Greek mythology because it is, with Norse, my religion. Maybe it's in another one, I don't really know.
