Exotic pets are typically categorized as any pet outside of dogs, cats, and domesticated farm animals. Naming a new exotic pet—whether it be a fish, rat, snake, or parrot—can be fun. But sometimes it can also be difficult without a little inspiration. Some people choose a name that’s inspired by their animal's appearance, such as Dino for a pet lizard that resembles a dinosaur. You also can find naming inspiration from your favorite TV shows, movies, songs, famous people, and more. If you’re looking for a name that begins with a particular letter of the alphabet, here are some exotic pet name options that start with the letters D and E.

Tips for Naming Your Exotic Pet

Depending on which species of exotic pet you choose, you might have it in your life for a very long time. Some animals, such as mice, only live for a few years on average in captivity. But others, such as tortoises, can live for several decades. So aim to take your time to pick a name you’ll be happy with over the course of your pet’s life and comfortable sharing with friends, family, and your veterinarian. Although certain animals might not notice (or care) if you change their name, it still can be a hassle to amend an animal’s name on vet records and other information midway through its life. 

Moreover, when you take your time selecting a name, you can draw inspiration from your pet’s personality traits as you get to know the animal, along with its appearance and general species characteristics. For instance, you might want to name a particularly speedy little gecko or gerbil Dash or Dart.
