Default Best newt names?

I'm curious as to what people name their newts, some come share your best!

I have Monty - for the Monty Python line "She turned me into a newt! .... I got better...", the eastern eft.

I also have Banquil, Tiny, Bazooka, Ozai, and Falcor, the fire-bellies. Banquil and Tiny came with their names - Tiny is Tiny because he's so fat. Bazooka is Bazooka simply because he's the largest and fastest of all of them. Ozai is for the Avatar: The Last Airbender firelord. Falcor is for Falcor in The Neverending Story, for they always have the same look on their face.

Come and share!

I have Kane and Bully... my 2 male paddletails... Kane is called Kane cos he looks like a stick Bully was called Noah, (the whole water theme) but he started bullying Kane when they were housed together...hence the name Bully. It just kinda stuck.

I also have Bruce and Harley... my male and female carnifex. They are named after brace wayne and Harley Quinne cos I am a batman geek :)

Default Re: Best newt names?

These are names i use/used:
Chinese firebellies: Uriel, Belinda, Sibylla, Diana
Swordtails: Nitager (previously Liara), Tali
Pachytriton: Tesar (previously Matilda)
HK firebelly: Kroq-Gar and Amphitrit
Reed frogs: Tenoqual, Tenehuini, Loki and Pawarotti

Naming animals is great, it makes them different, gaves them some sort of character. Everybody has "cynops orientalis females" but only i have Sibylla!

Default Re: Best newt names?

I've got a roughskinned newt named Einstein... as in "she's no Einstein". She came pre-named.

a Jefferson's salamander named Weezie (she's movin' on up. That's oldskool there).

My axolotls are Blue (You're my boy, Blue!), Big Momma, and Thad (this is a bit twisted: his back legs are bent, useless, and shortened, like a child whose mother took thalidomide).

3 tiger sals named Mario, Luigi, and Toad

An eastern milksnake named Peach

2 black ratsnakes named Bonnie and Clyde

a python named lumpy

a cat named Al.

None of them come when called.

And as a side note, my parents nicknamed me 'newt' when I was 2 months old. 28 years later, it still sticks. And they wonder why I turned out the way I did.

Default Re: Best newt names?

to revive this fun thread:

I don't usually name my newts, but a few have earned it:

- Hannibal, one fat and impressive apuanus larva who raised himself in his parents' tank (partially by eating his younger siblings)

- I call my alpine females the fat lady (because she is, well, fat), the crocodile (because she has a huge longish head like a croc) and the pitbull (because she has a funny, "mean" face - this one was named by my neighbor. Occasionally, we call her Sarah Palin).

- Quasimodo, an apuanus morph with a slightly deformed eye

- Had an alpine newt named "schluckauf" (which is German for hiccup) as a kid because he would make those loud squirting noises when breathing at the surface

- as a kid, I had 2 cristatus I named Romeo and Juliet, in hopes they would fall in love and breed. They never did. Then again, Romeo and Juliet didn't ever really get around to it, either...

Japanese fire-bellies: Naoko, Akira, Yoshimitsu, Hiro, Matsuko (turning into a boy I think) and one is called Metabo....because as a tiny morph he wouldn't stop eating, wouldn't even move off the dish. Later this newt stopped eating and nearly died but the name stuck. He's doing great again.

T.marmoratus: Fernando (aka Froggie), Alfonso, Esmeralda (aka Big Green Monster), Estrela (has a green star on her nose) and one so far unnamed.

A. opacum: Sal and Mandy

And our Horsfield tortoises: Tortellini, and 2 later additions Linguini and Risoni
