                    Criteria for Choosing an Axolotl Name


                    Axolotls can live up to 15 years, so the name you will give your cute, smiling pet ensures it stands out among other pet animals.

                    Axolotl can appear in different colors, like green, black, brown, or dark gray. You can also find a white or pink pet axolotl (leucistic axolotl) and name them Pearl (a precious gem from the sea). 

                    Giving your pet axolotl a meaningful name can help establish a deeper bond between you and your pet. You can also look for a perfect name that is meaningful or important to you, like Cherry Blossom, Ocean, River, Pond, or Azure.


                    Observing your axolotl's behavior can inspire a fitting name. Who knows? Maybe your pet axolotl reminds you of your favorite movie icon, like Captain Jack, or a book character, like Frodo. 

                    For those who are into Greek mythology, you can name your pet axolotls Poseidon (god of the sea), Hydra (water serpent), or Nereus (sea god).

                    Nibbler and Picky may have been cute names inspired by the pet's behavior. In addition, Happy Gilmore can refer to a short-tempered but adorable pet.


                    Some unique axolotl names can come from Japanese, Latin, Greek, and other languages. However, you can also choose a common yet unusual name. 

                    For instance, you can name your pet Cupcake as a nod to your favorite dessert. The moniker Bubbles can also be a good option. 

                    Since this unique pet lives in water, we prefer naming our axolotls with water-related words. For instance, Mizu (water) and Nami (wave) are Japanese names connected to water, while Brook means small stream.


                    What is the most common axolotl name?

                    The most common axolotl names are Toothless, Salt, and Pepper, based on people we know who have axolotl pets. 

                    However, the best pet axolotl names we've ever heard are usually related by some of the most beautiful names from Japanese, Latin, and Greek.

                    What is the pink axolotl's name?

                    The pink axolotl's name could be Blush, Pinky, Cotton Candy, Strawberry, or Cherry Blossom.

                    This species is called leucistic axolotl, which usually has a light pink color and black eyes [1]

                    What do you call a blue axolotl?

                    You can call your blue axolotl Azure, Aoi, Sky, or Aqua. Blue axolotls do not exist. What you see as "blue axolotl" is either black or brown. 

                    The blue color we see in pictures results from lighting or photo editing.

                    Final Thoughts

                    Axolotls, Mexican walking fish, have short legs and feathery external gills. However, their most unique abilities are regenerating and healing parts of their bodies. 

                    They breed easily in captivity, fascinating the public [2]. Naming these enchanting companions has become a delightful process for any axolotl owner.
