Why Does A Pet Need Name?

Pet Animals/ Birds are very fond of getting affection and what better form of expressing that affection other than calling them from cute, little, unique names that you give them with love. Apart from the emotional aspect, naming your pets helps them evaluate our (Human) Language and gestures better. Scientifically, animals have different ways to process information than humans, they love signs, symbols, and above all, “Sounds”. Here are some simple facts that you should know as a pet owner to understand various Pros to naming your pet.

  1. Helps them find a sense of belongingness:- As a newer member of the house, it’s utmost important that your pet feels like home. In short, they need to find a sense of belonging. A desire to be with you. Giving your pet a name that suits their personality, subliminally suggests to them the idea that they’re being noticed and all your pet wants is your attention and care.
  2. Increases receptivity :- This point is sort of oblivious, you don’t name your pet for the sake of it, to just name them and forget, if you really care about them, you’d call them a hundred perhaps if not a thousand times. Won’t you? JUST KIDDING, you routinely calling your pet will increase their receptive power, they might ignore, not notice you for a while but as time shall pass, they will get into a habit of recognizing the sound of their names as a command to reply back to you.
  3. Helps in Training:- Now that’s where it gets real, suppose somehow your birdie bird gets breaks out of his birdhouse, being a pet bird, one thing that’s set and stoned is, they will initially love the freedom but short after will get tired and would hop scotch from branch to branch to map their way back to you. Fortunately, there is a way to help cope such situations, a good bird training. It’s the method where you let your bird fly in a limited area of freedom and call them back into their rest house to help them develop the habit of listening to you. It also creates a sense of safety within your pet. One thing that you will need for this practice, FOR SURE is a GOOD NAME.
  4. Helps learning new sounds:- Their Name helps them build their instincts towards human language, it’s the gateway or in basic terms introduction to another new sounds and words you’re going to teach them. Suppose, for an instance you named your parrot as ‘rock’, them learning to respond to this sound might take a long span, but once they do, it will be easier to introduce them to new words like ‘hello”, ‘sit”, “stay calm”. Remember, they’re picking up on a pattern of sounds and not the Alphabetical accent we know of.
  5. Reduced reactiveness: Parrots are wild birds at their core, they aren’t and cannot recognise themselves as being part of a different specie community than theirs, giving their character a name, helps them become calmer and quite, it tricks them to believing that they are being attended, heard and seen as a part of the community. Not only does it helps induce happy hormones but also it decreases stress reactivity, especially when in the initial days of adoption.

Enough information about “why’s” right, but can be these prospected names we can provide them with?

As mentioned earlier, we’ll get you sorted with this as well. Here are some of the handpicked suggestions to name your Pet.

How to Name a Pet Bird

The answer to this question will come with a handful of tips and tricks, make sure you stick by and read thoroughly.

Even though you can choose the most random names and give them to your pets, we’d recommend not to jump in that fast on any conclusion. Here are some how’s for you.

  1. Choose a distinguishable Name:- Never choose a name that’s already been taken by any member around, choose something different, an uncommon name will help your pet recognize it for themselves easier and hence makes them relate to it even faster. Just for the instance, if you call one of your friends or brother by the name of ‘Ricky’ and you name your pet the same without realizing it, chances are that it can cause commotion later on. Your pet and friend will respond to the same names and this can lead to a situation of unnecessary hassle. Choose wisely, choose differently.
  2. Don’t reinforce any negative emotions:- You don’t want to name your pet after a “villian” in a story you heard when you were a child which left you traumatized for life, neither do you want to relate their name to any negative character in fictional and non – fictional world. This has got nothing to do with them, but everything to do with you. In initial stages of learning, you might need to call them more than necessary, you might need to pronounce the sounds over and again, after a certain period you wouldn’t feel so good about the word you’ve been reciting for so many times. Better to choose a name that induces smile on your face and instantly relieves as well.
  3. Options are endless:- This is more of a (fun) light – hearted tip, don’t be so focused on one genre or niche, try everything, you might like ‘fictional’ names but your pet might become a die-hard fan of a ‘cartoon character’ name. Keep your mind wide and perspective wider. Also, don’t shy away from doing a little research as well.
  4. Be more receptive:- Being patient is a virtue for real, you’ll know in a span of few days if your pet really likes the name you’ve given him or is he looking for a little more. Don’t force it, make changes, if you really like the name, try moulding some words here and there. We would recommend you to try and change the whole name. New approaches are always appreciated in all tasks, be more receptive to the needs of your pet as this the foundation you’re laying for rest of your journey together.
  5. Have fun with the process :- Last but not the least, have fun, be light, don’t take any failure or set back seriously. You’ve literally introduced yourself to whole another experience. Enjoy it.

These were some tips that we truly felt, were worth sharing. We’d love to hear your feedback about how you felt after reading the article. Our motto is to make sure that you don’t have to hustle so hard for all the good names that your pet deserves. We’ll keep trying to bring new and improved suggestions for you in the future as well.
