Totally Random Names for 16 Spectacular Animals

Ever since my husband and I met (17 years ago) we have always had an affinity for names. People with great names, pets with great names – we love this stuff. We also like to name things, real and imaginary. Yes, we are weirdos. When my husband recently told me what he would name an armadillo or an ocelot, I found his suggestions to be amazing. I thought the ensuing conversation and subsequent suggestions needed to preserved for posterity. So I now present to you, completely random names for 16 spectacular animals (generated by me and my husband).

  • Let’s get started. 1 of 11

    Let's get started!

  • The Narwhale 2 of 11
    The Narwhale

    "Pontius"

    Why? Because everyone would want to call him "Pointiest" and then you could correct them.

  • The Ocelot 3 of 11
    Ocelot

    It's so easy: Beyoncelot.

    Boom.

  • Penguins 4 of 11
    Pygoscelis_papua

    Either Jeeves or Mrs. Potts. You could also go with Mr. Carson.  Because penguins connote service.

  • The Armadillo 5 of 11

    Armand, because obviously.

     

  • The Hermit Crab 6 of 11

    You will name her Dr. Jill Biden and only ever call her by her full name and title because of the respect.
