Tips for Naming Your Frog or Toad

Frogs can live a long time in captivity, so be prepared for years of commitment. For example, a giant toad can live up to 24 years, and dart frogs can live up to 17 years. Think about a name that you will like for dozens of years. Classic names that describe a frog's natural movements or sounds could be one way to go. Or, perhaps you fondly remember a frog from your childhood. Also, remember when you go to the vet, they might need to call out your pet's name, so you might want to pick something that you're comfortable uttering in public.
