Sugar gliders are exotic pets that are just as smart as dogs. When it comes time to name them, call them something that's easy for them to understand. Usually, simple two-syllable names are your best bet. If you train them, they can learn their name and come when you call. Take a look at 100 names, including male, female, funny, and unique names for your mini pet marsupial.

Tips for Naming Your Sugar Glider

While a sugar glider might look like a rodent or flying squirrel, it is not—it's in the kangaroo and koala bear family. Since they can live for 12 to 15 years, think of a name that will have staying power. Baby sugar gliders are the size of a grain of rice when they're born; they're called joeys just like newborn kangaroos and grow larger in their mother's pouch. Some familiar names include Joey, Roo, and Ozzy (this could also be a nod to being native to Australia). When trying to come up with a name, look at its particular markings or personality traits.
