  1. We are Harry Potter fans here , so because we have a Luna Lovegood ( redfoot tortoise) A George Weasley ( children’s python) We decided on Tonks, which is a female characters name but we aren’t sure of the sex of our Leo yet so it seemed fitting either way!


  2. I have two, just got a new one today and came here to think of name ideas. I have decided on Gizzy and Ziggy, yep thatโ€™s my two ๐Ÿ˜†. Gizzy is my first one who I got a couple months ago and now i have little baby ziggy. I think they are great names whether together or apart!


  3. My geckos’ names are Mango and Tango (tangerine morphs) and Echo (Echo the Gecko, bell albino.) I am getting a purple and yellow one tomorrow, and I love the name Charmander. Thanks so much! ๐Ÿ˜€


    1. Ah I love it when people do rhyming names for a pair of geckos, kind of wish I had done that! Mango and Tango rolls off the tongue so nicely ๐Ÿ˜Š

      Glad you like that name Charmander, itโ€™s such a great name for a lizard ๐Ÿฅฐ


  4. Spot was the first name that came to my mind and I might use it for a male in the future. I’m getting my first leopard gecko girl in January, she has a lot of yellow so I’m thinking of naming her Saffron (after one of the Pokemon cities) Gialla (Italian for Lizard) Luterola (Italian for Yellow). My daughter has a male called Celadon, also named after a Pokemon city and he’s so delightful, I am now hooked! Hopefully they could breed..


    1. I love the creative names here! And Iโ€™m always a huge fan of naming lizards after anything Pokรฉmon related ๐Ÿ™‚
      Good luck with your first leopard gecko in January – such an exciting time!


  5. Out of the names, I chose two of my favorite names from every category;
    Monster: Draco and Yoshi
    Celebrity/human: Mabel or Swartznager
    Food Related: P o t a t o e or nugget
    Video Game: Vivi or sonic
    Outer space: Orion or Zodiac
    Pokรฉmon: Charmander or Heliolisk
    Uncategorized: Millie or Moxxie ๐Ÿ˜‰
    You should include cartoon, series and movie section, I have a lot of favorite characters like Millie and moxxie from heluva boss, Zim and Gir from invader zim, and some more which would make cute names for geckos ๐Ÿ™‚


  6. I have no idea what to name mine, itโ€™s a bold stripe, we donโ€™t know the gender yet, I might name it Tofu or Quinoa. For this website, you could add Chip, Chirp, Dune, Meringue, Fig, Fauna, etcโ€ฆ.Iโ€™m still trying to find a perfect name for my buddy.
