100+ Parrotlet Names: Ideas for Adorable Mini Parrots

Parrotlet perched on a wire

Parrotlets are among the smallest parrot breeds that we can house domestically. They are an attractive pet as they offer the same adorable qualities of a full-grown parrot, without the grand stature. Before jumping into adoption, there are a few things to consider. Parrotlets are a highly energetic bird, so providing ample exercise and space is crucial! Just because these birds are wee in size, doesn’t mean they will be happy in a small cage. They are also known to be quite strong-willed – each is sure to have its own distinct personality, but a word of caution. Some of these tiny beauties can be rather sassy at times. Finally, with a lifespan of about 30 years, you will have a lifelong friend in your parrotlet should you choose them as your partner in crime!

However, you’ve managed to land on an article for parrotlet names, so it’s likely safe to assume you’re committed to your new companion and know what it takes to give them the best possible life! The final item is to find your sweet birdie a name. Choosing the right Pacific Parrotlet name should be a breeze as these flighty little dudes are colorful and packed full of personality. Both great starting points when brainstorming a name that would be suitable.

Hope you enjoy the read and our diverse list of bird names for parrotlets.
