Choosing A Lizard Name

Choosing the right name for a lizard is very important.

A lizard’s name is the first clue of its character and personality to all those who meet it. It determines how people view you lizard.

A cute name for a lizard is super disarming, especially if you have friends who might be a little bit scared of them.

Something funny is sure to crack a smile on someone’s face whenever they see or think about your pet.

You could also pick something classic to show off their appearance or personality. You could name your lizard after characters straight out of a movie, tv show, book, fable, or mythology.

Ultimately, lizard names determine what people should expect when they meet it.

Whatever energy they give off is telling of who they are, and when you find the name that fits them just right, you’ll know.
