How to Choose a Name for Your Leopard Gecko

Naming your leopard gecko is a fun and exciting experience, but it can also be a bit overwhelming.

Where do you even begin with so many options (105 to be exact) to choose from?

Don’t worry; we’ve covered you with helpful tips for choosing the perfect name for your scaly little buddy.

First and foremost, let’s consider the characteristics of your leopard gecko. Is your gecko a feisty and energetic little ball of fire? Maybe a name like Blaze or Ignition would be fitting. Or perhaps your leopard gecko is a bit more on the calm and docile side, so a name like Zen or Serene would be perfect.

Do they have an attitude? It might be worth considering some badass lizard names like Rocky or Hunter.

Another thing to consider is the color and pattern of your leopard gecko. A name like Star or Galaxy will be fitting if your gecko has a striking and unique pattern, like a bold and beautiful RAPTOR pattern. If your leopard gecko has a more subdued color, like a creamy white, a name like Snow or Marshmallow would be fitting.

But don’t limit yourself to these suggestions; let your imagination run wild! You could name your leopard gecko after a favorite movie character (Mine is Maximus – Gladiator), a historical figure, or even a type of food! The possibilities are endless.

One more tip: when choosing a name, make sure it’s easy to pronounce and remember. You don’t want to have to constantly correct people on how to say your leopard gecko’s name, and you don’t want to forget it yourself!

So there you have a few helpful tips for choosing the perfect name for your leopard gecko.

Remember, the name you choose reflects your relationship with your pet, so have fun and don’t take it too seriously.

Why Naming Your Leopard Gecko is Important

Ah, the age-old question: why bother naming your leopard gecko?

After all, it’s just a lizard, right?


Calling your leopard gecko is not just a formality. It’s a crucial step in developing a personal connection with your pet.

Think about it, would you call your dog “Fido” or your cat “Fluffy”? Of course not! So why should your leopard gecko be any different?

Giving your leopard gecko a unique and personal name shows that you care about them as an individual, not just another animal in your collection.

But that’s not all, naming your leopard gecko also makes it easier to communicate with others about your pet. Imagine trying to describe your leopard gecko to a friend without a name. “It’s the one with the yellow and white spots.” “No, not that one, the other one.” See how confusing that can get? Having a name eliminates that problem.

Plus, let’s be real, naming your leopard gecko is just plain fun. It’s an opportunity to let your creativity run wild and create a unique and fitting name for your scaly friend.

And who doesn’t love a good pun or clever name?

So, naming your leopard gecko is essential because it helps create a personal connection with your pet, makes communication easier, and is just fun. So go forth, and name your leopard gecko something amazing!


There you go, 105 leopard gecko names and a short guide on choosing the right one.
