My New Boy

Recommended Posts

hi all,

 

yesterday i picked up my newest addition to my birds. i got him off Rah (fellow forum member). He is just adorable. He's still settling in so is still a bit shy. Need suggestions for names?

I normally name birds after their personalities or parentage, but sometimes it is hard.

 

A lot of people are going to go "he is green and gold, so name him ozzie" or some variation. Yes, he is green and gold, but to me, it is more of the green and gold we saw in the 70' and 80's, so I would go with a name that kind of comes from that era. As a little boy, you can name him after one of those great cricketers of that era, like DK Lillee, AB( Alan Border) or Boonie (David Boone), or even something like Retro. I actually like the name Retro. He has the whole hypercolour t-shirt thing going on, with him being blue but since he is a YF2, looking green.

 

After thinking about it, I say Retro.

hypercolour was heat activated and Supercolour were the water activated ones... Everytime I go to the shops I expect to see them on sale again... I hate 80's fashion!!!!

 

Back on topic though, I'm not really good with names but I like Dave's idea of going with an 80's theme... maybe Boy George would be good :rofl: I really have no idea...

He is very pretty, I am horrible with names LOL I always try to look at the color, maybe the month that you got him and the gem stone for it not sure what Oct is. You didn't mention quarantine but I assume you that is where he is but I like to put it out there for new members that quarantine is essential :D. Congrats!

I like the name Retro too. I also like Kaz's suggestion of Fresno, it sounds in my head like refreshing, outdoorsie type of name. I have no idea what Fresno is/means, but I think that's a cute name for your cute lil fella too :D :rofl:

I had a tough time naming my new feathered friends too! We decided we'd have a naming system for our future animals though!

 

We have naming systems for computers, we use planets.

 

But for the naming systems for our animals we've decided on the Phonetic alphabet. So I named the budgie I got yesterday Alpha :D

 

Just some suggestions to try and find groups of things you can take names from.

I like these three out of all the suggestions:

AB

Tangy

Mintie

 

All sounds very cool and original.

Never heard of him either

 

 

He's an american tattoo artist. I really like his work. The name is also very different which is partly why I like it so much.
