Animal names

Heard of someone naming their son, [name]Fox[/name] [name]London[/name] and thought it was a very cool name. Can you think of any other animal names and what do you think of them?

Crevan (Irish for fox)
[name]Leo[/name] (Latin form of Greek [name]Leon[/name], meaning lion)
[name]Leonard[/name] (lion-strong)

Interesting that two separate post were made because of one celebrity name ^^
Animal names are cool, I really like them, and have a few of them on my list…

for boys:
[name]Fisk[/name] (means fish, but has an amazing sound)
[name]Loewe[/name] (means lion, [name]German[/name] origin, I think it’s pronounced LOW-eh)
[name]Crane[/name] (but this one’s a bit odd)

For Girls:
[name]Teal[/name] (I’m sure it would work for a girl as well ^^)
[name]Bird[/name] ([name]Birdie[/name])
[name]Lark[/name] (I’ve heard this for boys as well)
[name]Leontine[/name] (underused in my opinion, it’s supercute!)
[name]Tabitha[/name] (means [name]Gazelle[/name])
Ylva (means “she-wolf”, Scandinavian name)

I’m sure there’s more with animal meaning, but these are the obvious ones… You’ll notice there are a lot of birds here ^^

[name]Robin[/name] - not the freshest of names since it has been used for a while now.
[name]Leonie[/name]/[name]Leona[/name] - [name]Lion[/name] for girls.
[name]Gavin[/name] - White hawk
Dracen, [name]Draco[/name], [name]Drake[/name] and [name]Ryu[/name] (Japanese) - All mean dragon.
Kaida - Japanese for a girl, means little dragon.
[name]Colt[/name] - a young horse. I prefer [name]Colton[/name] but meaning changes.
[name]Conan[/name], [name]Connell[/name], [name]Lowell[/name], [name]Rudolph[/name], and Leavitt - All mean wolf.
Tiburon - means shark.
Aponi, Eilir, Kallima, and [name]Yara[/name] - are all feminine names that mean butterfly.
Kamiko - Japanese girls name that means little turtle.
Hastin - Elephant
[name]Hart[/name] and [name]Herschel[/name] - Deer.
[name]Dyani[/name], [name]Naara[/name], [name]Ayala[/name] - Deer.

Oh, I thought of another one! [name]Mariposa[/name] means butterfly… ^^ It’s cute… [name]Papillon[/name] and [name]Butterfly[/name] itself could also be choices ^^

I also looked through the blog history and found some:
and so on…

For names that are related to or their meaning is some kind of animal, like [name]Tabitha[/name], Nameberry did a blog on it a while back… I think there’s huge difference between naming your daughter [name]Ursula[/name] (which means bear) and naming your son [name]Bear[/name] though… It’s just not the same!

For girls:


Well we went a little naturey with our names.
[name]Taylor[/name] [name]Rose[/name] -flower
[name]Willow[/name] [name]Payton[/name]- tree
[name]Raven[/name] [name]Kennedy[/name]- bird
[name]Ryker[/name] Woods- well the woods!

I used to work in the BBC in [name]Bristol[/name], where they had the Natural [name]History[/name] Unit. I remember one of the mad-professor-type Producers, called [name]Jeffery[/name], who was nuts about ornithology, and called his three sons [name]Robin[/name] [name]Peregrine[/name] and [name]Falcon[/name].

[name]Just[/name] found [name]Lissa[/name] means “bee” a variation of [name]Melissa[/name] but also stands alone as it’s own name. I’ve been wanting to find a name I like with the nn [name]Bee[/name]/[name]Bea[/name]. My name is [name]Lisa[/name] maybe it should have been [name]Lissa[/name] instead.
