Names for Turtles - Male, Female and Unisex
Turtles are pets that usually don't interact excessively with the people who adopt them, but their adorable appearance is irresistable. Because we won't often have to call their name, like you would with a dog, we have the freedom to choose longer, more creative names.
If we give them phonetically appropriate names, give them treats, and maintain patience, perhaps our turtle will approach us confidently to claim their food.
AnimalWised will suggest different names for male, female and unisex turtles. Pick your favorite!
For male turtles we have chosen names which depict great speed and power (for comedic effect) and some are simply just amusing. Let us know your opinion! We'd love your suggestions in the comments section too.
- Road Runner
For female turtles we have followed pretty much the same criteria as for males. Get creative:
- Little Red Riding Hood
Unisex names for turtles
In many occasions we do not know the sex of our turtle and we need an ambivalent name that fits well for both genders. Here are some ideas:
- The Mountain
- Shell Shock
Land turtles (tortoises) interact somewhat more than freshwater turtles. Although both appreciate and recognize the strange being that feeds them, tortoises have a more vivacious temperament than their aquatic counterparts.
When choosing a name, if the turtle is young, make sure to choose a name that will match them when they are older - it must be suitable for them during many, many years.
Freshwater turtles interact very little with humans. Only the being that feeds them on a daily basis sparks some kind of interest in them. Freshwater turtles are flatter and have more hydrodynamic contours than their terrestrial counterparts.
