Are you the proud pet parent of a new animal? If you’ve just brought home an exotic pet—that is, anything that’s not a cat, dog, or domesticated farm animal—you might be looking at naming options. But finding the perfect pet name isn’t always so simple. Many people draw inspiration from their animal’s appearance or species traits. For instance, you might want to name a pet rabbit with lots of spots Freckles. You also can look for ideas in pop culture and pick a name from your favorite movies, TV shows, songs, books, and more. Or perhaps you simply have your heart set on a name that begins with a specific letter of the alphabet. If so, here are some fabulous exotic pet names that start with the letter F.

Tips for Naming Your Exotic Pet

Don’t hesitate to give your new pet some time to settle in before you select a name for it. Your animal won’t hold it against you if it’s without a name for a little while. And as you get to know your pet, you’ll be able to discover individual personality traits, such as its favorite foods or games it likes to play, that could lend themselves to a good name. For example, you might notice your pet parrot loves to sing along with guitar music, so you could name it Fender after the guitar maker. 

Exotic pets have a wide range of lifespans. Some species, such as certain small rodents and fish, live for fewer than 10 years on average. But others, such as large parrots and tortoises, can live for 50 years or more. And it’s ideal to pick a name you will be happy with throughout the course of your animal’s life. It’s true that not every animal will learn its name, and even the ones that do usually still can adapt to name changes. But you’ll also have to amend the name on your vet records and other information if you decide you don’t like it, which can be a hassle. 

An important determining factor in naming a pet is whether you will be comfortable sharing the name with family and friends, as well as with your veterinarian’s office. If you ever think a particularly risqué or offbeat name could embarrass you, that’s probably a name to avoid.
