Names for Budgerigars

Pets can become our invaluable friends, and sometimes finding the right name for a pet can be as difficult as choosing a name for our own child. This might sound exaggerated - but really, it isn't.

Australian parrots, like budgerigars, lories and rosellas, are very popular thanks to their bright and gorgeous colors. Are you thinking about adopting a budgerigar but haven't found the best name yet? Don't worry - you've come to the right place.

Here at AnimalWised we'll help you with our compilation of names for budgerigars and other Australian parrots.

I don't have a budgie yet but I'm getting one next week. I'm planing on getting a blue male and naming him Stitch :)

What a great name Gray, enjoy your time with Stitch when it comes!
Great ideas for budgie names! I started with a white female budgie named Charlie (for that YouTube video "Charlie bit my finger" ... my girl loves nibbling at fingers) and later got our blue male that we named Tiki (Japanese for waterfall). Budgies make the best pets!

Hi Rachael,

Thank you for sharing this with us. We always think it is best to choose a name which suits an animal's specific personality or behavioral traits and your reason for choosing Charlie is brilliant. Please feel free to share with us any more creative ideas you come up with.
