Although the definition can vary, exotic pets are typically classified as any animal outside of cats, dogs, and domesticated farm animals. If you have just acquired an exotic pet of your own—whether it be a hamster, lizard, parrot, or fish—you might be looking for the perfect name. Some people select a name based on their pet’s appearance, such as Blizzard for a white pet rabbit. Others might go with a name that alludes to the animal’s environment, such as Bubbles for a pet fish. If you’re stuck on selecting the perfect name and need suggestions, here are some exotic pet name options that begin with the letter B.

Tips for Naming Your Exotic Pet

It’s important to take your time to think about pet names before you settle on one. Your animal won’t mind going without a name for a little while. Certain exotic pets, such as some small rodents and fish, only live for a few years on average. But others, such as parrots and tortoises, can live for decades. So you’ll want to pick a name that you’ll be happy using for your pet’s entire lifespan. Yes, some animals might never learn their name, so they wouldn’t care if you changed it. But it still can be a hassle changing a name on vet records and other information, so you’re better off picking one that sticks from the start. 

Choose a name that you will be comfortable sharing with your family members and friends. It might seem fun in the moment to pick a somewhat risqué or otherwise offbeat name. But if there’s a chance you will ever be embarrassed hearing that name called in a vet’s waiting room, then that’s likely a sign you should select something else. In addition to an animal’s appearance, many people take naming inspiration from its individual personality traits and those of its species as a whole. For instance, you might select Bashful for a shy turtle or Bounce for a pet frog. Or maybe the right name simply starts with your favorite letter of the alphabet.
