    Sun conure name suggestions

    We are getting our baby sun conure next weekend - I promise to post lots of pics once we get home on Saturday from the breeders.

    I need some help with names. We won't know male or female until we dna test him. So I'd like some names that can go either way.

    I've tried going to websites with pet names and baby names, and nothing has just jumped out.

    So I am appealing to a better source of information - you guys!

    I want something that captures their fun loving clownish behavior.

    I like Hawaiian names - as they are bright tropical birds (I know they don't come from Hawaii)

    So send your ideas .. let's see if something strikes my fancy

    Re: Sun conure name suggestions

    I'm not farmiliar with a lot of Hawaiian names, but I like the name "Kona". I think it could be male or female.

    Do you like Mythological names at all? I personally love them. You could look up some of those if you're interested. Other names I like the sound of are Kai, Selma, Indy, Piper, Sadie, Orion, Lani, Quincy, Keira, Isla (eye-la), Ciara, Liora, Diree, etc.

    Good names - keep them coming ...

    I seem to like the harsh K words - whether it's in front or in the middle.

    Previous to this post, I found the following names that I liked:
    Kalauni - means clown (not sure how to pronounce it - I'd pronounce it Kah-lah-nee

    Lukah - bringer of light - which I like and says it's male & female

    Kichiri (can't remember what that one meant - but it sounds cheerful)

    My son was looking for mythology names - he liked Loki - but I already know someone with a Sun named Loki : ) (I like this name a lot though).

    Fanta reminds me of the soda! Fanta orange! it does make me smile!!!
    I'll check out the hawaiian site .. and some more mythology names

    Keep the names coming .. something will stick!

    Mo'o
    Lolo
    Manu - means 'bird'
    Ino Ino - means 'quality'
    AnuAnu , Ko'eKo'e , Hu'iHu'i - these all mean 'cold'
    Wela, Hahana - both mean 'Hot'

    Will try to find more later.

    Re: Sun conure name suggestions

    Skittles is a popular name and so is Mango.
    I'm naming mine Sundance. I get the bird early in April. I'm so excited.
    What about looking at a map of Hawaii or Hawaiian cities? My family lives in Mililani Town. Mililani sounds like a female. Maybe wait until you get the DNA. That only takes a week.

    Re: Sun conure name suggestions

    If you want a Spanish name for a sun conure, you could always consider "Caliente" which means "hot". Could use "Cali" for short for a girl and "Cal" for a boy. I considered this for my sun before I fell in love with the name "Cayenne" ( like the hot pepper) for my guy. I sometimes call him Cai for short. He's awesome!

    Thumbs up Re: Sun conure name suggestions



    I am getting a Sun Conure too sometime this summer! They really are beautiful birds. Names is in my opinion one of the hardest parts (and most important part) of getting a bird because the bird will learn it's name and you can't just change it if you find a better suggestion. I have been looking for a good name for my conure for a while but when I read this post, the name "Meli" really stuck out to me! It s short and sweet and just goes. Thank you so much you resolved my problem and the rest of these names are great ideas too! It is really helpful that you listed the meanings of the names which helped me find the right name also based on the meaning. Again, thank you so much!
