Are you looking for the best pet snail names?
Naming a snail is not easy. Snail names are not all over the internet like dog names or other pet names.
Today, we’re listing 125+ best pet snail names. From famous to funny ideas, you’ll find inspiration for naming your slimy friend!
How to choose a name for your pet snail?
I’m a snail mom myself. I’ve had giant African land snails for over twenty years. At the moment, I have many snails. Nevertheless, each and every one of them has a name.
Of course, snails don’t learn their names. If you call your slimy friend by its name, it won’t crawl to you.
But that doesn’t matter. Snails are truly fascinating creatures. Each snail has a unique personality, and snails deserve individual names.
For some reason, I like to give my snails names that end with -bert. I’ve had many slimy friends with a name like that.
There’s one issue about naming snails. Snails are hermaphrodites, so should you give them boy or girl names?
I’ve mostly ignored that. Some of my snails have boy names, some have girl names, and the rest have unisex names. I only pay attention to how cute I think the name is.
Having hermaphrodite pets is actually handy. I don’t have to care about naming them based on their gender.
