    If you are still having trouble finding that perfect name for your exotic pet consider a name that starts with a different letter (or even a number) or search the lists of names for pairs of pets, names for different species of pets, or even names for children. Don't give up! Your pet needs a name and sooner or later the perfect one will come to you.

    Try watching your favorite television show, read your favorite book, or even think of your favorite flower or food for name ideas. Search for inspiration for a pet name in your everyday life. Observe your pet and take your time to get to know their habits, favorite foods, or their personality.

    There's no rush to naming your pet. Many people choose a name for their pet and then decide on a different name at a later date. You can even make up a name for your pet! The possibilities are endless and there are no rules to naming your exotic pet.
