Echo… the Gecko.
I think I’ll probably do Speckles, Pebbles or Cola. Which one do y’all like?
I’m thinking about naming my Male gecko 🦎 George
I named my male Azymondias (Zym for short). Got the name from The Dragon Prince.
I might name mine Sunny from the beat novel series Wings of Fire. Starflight might be a good name for an eclipse or black hole leopard gecko. Clay is good for a leopard gecko who LOVES to eat. Glory for a pretty one. And Tsunami for a fierce leopard gecko. If I had 3 female sisters I would name them Blister, Blaze and Burn. Fjord for one that likes the cold. I would name a male and female leopard gecko who live together the male Mangrove and the female Orchid. A big mean black night leopard gecko could be named Marrowseer. All these names are from Wings of Fire.
OMG I LOVE the Wings Of Fire and I was thinking about naming my female leopard gecko Sunny and also great name ideas.
I don’t have a gecko just yet but I will be getting one soon, so leave some names.
Bagel, bagel is what I’m calling mine
GECKO123 Lmao that’s amazing
I have 4 – Bella, Runner, Blaze & I’m still deciding on what to name my newest addition. It’s between Spook, Stoner, Piper or Dozy. Which do you like?
Dozy for a girl, Spook for a boy.
I have, what I like to call, the “Z-Team”. Ziggy, Zelda and Zoe.
My gecko has blue around she or he’s eyelids. What type of leopard gecko do I have?
Lavender morph I think.
All leopard geckos have some blue around their eyelids.
I like pebbles, super cute because they are super bumpy C:
I’m deciding between GOD, Big Chungus, or Tennis Ball, but Hot Sauce is also really cute!
Two girls could be named Yanny and Laurel!
I would name mine Frodo and Sam. Any LOTR fans here?
I think you should add the name Cyrus for Female and Dino for male, but if I had to choose from the list I’d say Geico (:
I named mine Mango, I don’t know why because she’s an albino but she has tangerine blobs on her, lol, but I like the name August for a unisex leopard gecko.
I named mine Trixy cause she was tricking us all the time!
Nari is my leopard gecko’s name.
We have Chomper (Rainwater Albino) who always wants to eat and Chaco (Chocolate Albino). We still do not know if they are Male or Female… housed separately for now.
For a set of two geckos I think Shimmer and Shine is adorable!
That is adorable
My Leo is named Aerin (female) but we thought about naming her Senay or Dorthey.
I picked Happy and Loulou. Both from Petco in same tank. Wasn’t sure girl or boy so it was safe either way. I’ll be getting Sammy and Chatty soon.
Cool names :-).
Be careful though – you shouldn’t house two males together, as they will fight. Two females is usually OK. (Here’s a guide on how to tell the gender of a gecko)
I am going to name my leopard gecko Zeus and I think the name Zeus should be added to the list of names.
It. Already is
Casper, he’s an Albino Leopard Gecko.
I named my male Mufasa and my female Zarrabi. Anyone a Disney fan out there?
Pistachio would be cute, also Bubbles and Peanut…
Awwww! I love Lion King. AMAZING Names!

My friend said she’d name hers Stella or Peach.
I named my females Berry, Kiwi, Leaf and my males Cheeto and Commet (housed separated) : )
I named mine Kiwi and I think that could be a unisex name for the list.
I called mine Kiwi, Leaf, Commet and Berry
We named ours Gizmo, she’s a girl. She gets called Giz a lot. I want a male, what name would go with Gizmo? Kids said Tango x
My four are named Smiley male, Blondie female, Geico male and Charlie female.
Mine are Freckles male and E-lizard-beth female.
I like Geico.
I would name mine Dotty.
I named mine Sunny – shout out to you guys Leopard Gecko Land.
What about Liz?
My new geckos names are Skittles and Frosting!
My son named his leopard gecko Doctor Connors, from the Marvel comics. His character was trying to regrow his arm and was experimenting on lizards to do this. Long story short he turned himself into a lizard.
I named my beautiful boy Virgo – I don’t know exactly why, but I love the name and it got him well.
My bro is naming his ‘Darth Raider’ – it’s a cute name for a guy gecko.
Mochi, cuz they are soft and squishy.
Very fitting! I named my new male leopard gecko Mochi now!
I shall name mine Mochi now too 🙂
I love the name Yeti for a large white gecko. Sparky is cute for a fast little guy. Pumpkin, Gingersnap and Garfield for a Tangerine. Cheese is also adorable. Iris for a multicolored.
My name list… Titan, Jaws, Peanut, Mint, Pickles, Faith, Lucky, Mini, Winter, Zulu, Griffin, Sandy, Pebbles, Walnut, Yanny, Rain, Molly, Bubbles, Gracie
I named my Tremper Albino ‘Oona’ because her colors are the same as one of the characters from Bubble Guppies. My other one is ‘Nonny’ – another character from Bubble Guppies. I named after these characters because my little sister loves the show.
I like the name Atticus (like Atticus Finch).
For paired names you should put Alosi and Claude, Sebastian and Ciel — and Salt and Pepper.
OMG I love Black Butler. I would find this pairing cute for a black leopard gecko (Sebastian) and a smaller darker colored leopard gecko (Ciel).
I love the name ‘Checkers’ for a generic leopard gecko!
Luna is a good name for a female white gecko.
I’m naming mine Romer.
My grandson named his Elliott
I think the name Caspian is cute!
I named my leopard gecko Elliott after the dragon in Disney’s Petes Dragon
I named mine BBOP and Rocksteady.
I’m naming my leopard gecko “Gucci”.
You are a god to me.
My 2 are PP and Poopoo. My kid wanted 2 call them that, he’s only 4 and I didn’t want 2 upset him. But they are rubbish names.
My leos name is Jub-Jub.
I think the names Flame or Ember for a Tangerine Gecko is quite good as well.
No offense but these are terrible
OK – got any suggestions for names you don’t think are terrible..? 🙂
I named him Gecks.
I thought of Peaches and Spots, Nala and Simba and Bear and Daisy.
I added Banana Mango and Nova to my suggestions list.
