How to Name Your Pet Frog

Fortunately, your new pet frog isn’t pressuring you to come up with a good name as fast as possible. So, you can take some time before deciding on a name. A good way to come up with a personal name for your frog is to let him get used to his new home and let his true personality shine. This can take a few weeks, so make sure to be observant of your frog’s behavior during this time. You may notice some features like color markings, activity levels, and sounds that are unique to your frog.

Next, start listing some names, people, or words that remind you of your frog. You can use our list below to get your mind jogging. Once you come up with a few names, start whittling your list down.
