My first thought was to name it after the country in which it's native but unfortunately Veiled Chameleons are native to Yemen and Saudi Arabia. Saudi just isn't a great name and I could never support Yemen since the country's appetite for ivory contributes so heavily to the poaching of wild ivory-toting animals. Would have been a cooler idea if these critters were from Madagascar or somewhere!

Um... Liz (for lizard since chameleons are a type of lizard)

Helmut (for the helmet ridge on their heads)

Hmmm, next thought, I just looked up the taxonomy:

Order: Squamata
Family: Chamaeleonidae
Genus/species: Chamaeleo calyptratus

Squamata is a cool word - how about that as a name?

Hmmm... perhaps I should get back to work... I'm probably not helping am I? :o)

I'm always fond of names like Butch, Spike, Killer, or Bubba, because it's just the opposite of her true nature!
10/03/2006 09:18:37 AM · #58
I'm rather partial to DPC-related names:

Ribbonator
Bokeh
Flash (just as funny to me as Fluffy)
Elsa Cloaked
Grey Scales
Ess RGB...

(You get the idea)

Thanks everyone! Im going to look over these names and pick my top 5 and then we can vote on them! :P

Though there is some bad news... I went to turn off the lights for her today and noticed she had a buldge in her right eye and she was definetly frustrated (turned really dark green)..doesn't look good :(..I'm taking her to the vet tomorrow morning and hopefully she'll be ok..
10/03/2006 10:25:06 PM · #66
I hope she's okay, she's pretty cute. Looks just like that little dinosaur from the land before time - Duckie.
10/03/2006 10:25:39 PM · #67
And I think she should be named clover. Maybe she'll bring you luck. :)

Good luck for Sure! Have you had Chamies before? I can never keep the darned things alive, and I was manager of a pet store for 2 years! Other lizards are just fine...chamies are finicky though.
Good luck. Please keep us posted!!

Well, I think part of your problem is that a pet should have a first and middle names in addition to the family name.

The first name should be the personable name and the second name trait driven in some way:

(ie: Haku Blu is my snake's name. Haku is his personable name (derived from the movie "Spirited Away" which featured a bluish colored serpent dragon) and Blu due to his color tone as a Japanese Kunisar. I dropped the "e" so it related more directly to his first name.)

As for a name suggestion. I like "Calliope" as it sorta represents the variety and cacophony [of colors] she might be. Taking a name of yours, perhaps "Calliope Jade" or "Jade Calliope".
