    3. Kirby - x.laevis albino female - (reminded me of the nintendo game character - all round and pink!)
    4. Lola - x. laevis reticulated albino female - (she is so pretty, all yellow and pink - reminded me of the song "her name was lola")
    5. Louie - x.laevis albino male - ( was originally named Lola (before he turned out to be male and Lola ended up being female) - then it fit after his situation with the snail, became "Louie ARMstrong" )
    6. Magellan - x.laevis golden reticulated male - ( is one of the most active frogs, always looks like he is exploring)

    You have some great names there that all seem to fit well.
    Aren't you getting married one of these Saturdays soon? I would assume the honey moon would not involve axolotis. lol But then again I can not travel without checking out petstroes.

    Are you doing CA or FL Disney? Been to both. Florida is way better. I assume you are flying? To hard if not impossible to bring animals on board. Driving though, now that is where you can do some shopping!

    Are tree frogs included in this discussion? I really hope so because I'd love to post mine's names! ><

    Bruce Campbell (Adult White's Tree Frog) -- Named after Bruce Campbell the actor from the Evil Dead movie series as Ash (he's also made cameo appearances in all of Sam Raimi's Spiderman movies) and a TV series called "Burn Notice" where he plays the main character's best friend Sam Axe.

    Bruce Wayne (Baby Blue Phase White's Tree Frog) -- Obviously named after Bruce Wayne A.K.A. Batman, I just LOVE Batman. ^ ^ (What a coincidence Jenste, I might be naming one of my frogs Harvey Dent in the future. XD)

    Apollo and Artemis (Male and Female Phyllomedusa Tomopterna) -- Named after the Greek God of the Sun and Goddess of the moon (they're brother and sister), because I just love Greek mythology. ^ ^

    Thanks for letting me share, even if this was for ACFs. >< I couldn't help it!

    Hi,

    I have 4 Pacific Chorus Frogs - Pseudacris regilla

    2 males - Alto and Niko
    2 females - Pako and Hilo

    My 4 year old son came up with the names Pako and Niko, and then it turned into a "theme", four letter words ending in "o". lol

    It works, and I came up with the other 2 names, Alto and Hilo. Alto is the definate "singer/croaker" of the group and the biggest male. And Hilo is the smallest female that changes colors the most often and she made me think of Hilo with it's beautiful gardens in Hawaii.

    Mickey and Mallory - Pair of breeding Ranitomeya ventrimaculata "Rodyll". Cause these two just rocks.
    Gretel (female) Melanophryniscus stelzneri. Cause they beat the witch.
    Hansel (Female) Hyla cinerea. Same. And we like to be confusing.
    Google (male) - Leptopelis vermiculatus. Cause I'm a web strategist and Google is my friend.
    Lilith and Link - Bombina orientalis. Cause it's one kick-a*s woman and one great game character.

    I'M getting 5 P. terribilis "Yellow" froglets within the next weeks. We will not name them. But they will be known as "The minions".

    Flip - a great name for a hoppy froggy.
    Flop - came three months later and what goes better with Flip?
    Sushi - a beautiful blue male betta whose tank is next to theirs. This fish is rather personable and nearly communicative and they rather seem to enjoy each other's company.

    I have a pretty blue betta on my desk at work. I named him after my bosses boss because of some obvious similarities. (pretty boy, thinks he's tough...etc..etc) Big hit around the office.

    I think I am enjoying the logic/stories behind the names more than the names themselves!

    We have Homer, Gomer, and Scrooge. The logic behind these names, and who they are stolen from:

    Homer (Simpson) - he's pretty oaf-like, and eats a lot.
    Scrooge (McDuck) - he's extremely aggressive and greedy.
    Gomer (Pyle) - he does funny things, and he's got a darker complexion.

    Froggie and Chance - White's Tree Frogs. Froggie was originally named... something else, but I just kept referring to him as "froggie" to my friend who is forgetful of my pet names (gheeze woman, I only own 200 pets!) and I did it so much that it became his name. It suits him, so I'm happy. Chance just came to me when I looked at him. /shrug

    Yogi, Olive, and Ninja - olive/green tree frogs. Yogi is because he has a screwed up leg that fails around occasionally, and when he gets bored he props the leg up on his head (back leg). Olive just came to me - I mean, yeah, she's olive colored, but she just looks like an Olive. Ninja is because he is REALLY good at hiding - so good, I was searching for a frog's corpse. -_-

    Solar and Lunar - ACFs. Solar is the albino one, and Lunar is the gray one. I'm one of those crazy new-agers, and I wanted a pair name for them, and that popped in my head.

    Bark, Leafy, Branch, Shroom, and Roots - firebelly toads. Yeah. I still don't know why. Why not?

    Toadstool - pacman frog. Need I say more?
