    • You don’t have to do a flashlight , you lift his tail up and there’s so bumps on both sides it’s a boy if there’s to on both sides of the stomach it’s a girl

  1. i had named my norbert norbert is the name of hagrids dragon in the philosopher’s stone, so i thought it was fitting haha. i was shocked it wasnt on here

  2. We just got my son a beardie today. He named him Click-Clack. A character on the Netflix show “Dinotrux”. Not sure if we have a boy or girl but I think either way, the name will remain the same.

  3. I am disappointed that ‘Rocky’ wasn’t on this list that is what i am going to call my bearded dragon when i get him for Christmas.

  4. I named my male Hypo Het Trans Leatherback named Cheeto as he is orange. My female is a Het Trans, named Cherrio as she is different shades of grey, bit of orange and blue.

  5. My beardie was called Puff. Unfortunately she passed away.
    I’m getting a baby beardie soon, just can’t decide on a name.

  6. I am thinking of getting a bearded dragon one day. I have two friends that have one and their beardies are named Blackbeard and Bernard (both female). If I get one, I think I would name it: Shnitzel, Snickerdoodle, Fergalicious (Fergie for short), or Little Larimar.

  7. I named our first one Bruce,after Bruce Lee, whose nickname was Little dragon..
    When Bruce passed we named the New one Mr Lee.. we once had another we didnt know the sex, so we called it Jackie..after Chan or Jackie O..

  8. I got a Beardie on Feb 23rd. I named him Cheeto because he is an orange fancy. Thanks for the suggestion. BTW Chedder is a great name for a Beardie or a yellow fancy.

  9. i have to wait like another 4 years to get one, so basically after i move out, but anyways when i get the little dragon, I’m gonna qualify them to be my ESA (emotional support animal). but if it’s a little dude, he’s gonna be norbert from Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone, and if it’s a princess, probably, Minerva becuase Minerva’s a bada**, bossa** witch can you tell i like harry potter?

  10. I just got my beady and he shall be named Amadeus.
    New classroom pet, 4th gr, and I may let each new class rename him…but for now…Amadeus. 😊

  11. I have a seven month citrus beardie and his name is skipper, but my brother is going to get a male bearded dragon and does any name suggestions

  12. Our Spanish teacher got one for a classroom pet. We have to submit names for voting. Im stuck between three: Charizard, Zuko, and Azula.

  13. I’m getting a bearded dragon soon (I already have a breeder.) My plan is to pick four names, put food on four different plates, assign a name to each plate, and then let him go. Whichever one he eats from first will be his name!

  14. I got mine a year ago and his name is Mr. Pancake…he’s awesome…and those names are great if i get another one i’ll use one of those

  15. I’m got a bearded dragon and I named it bearded Rex ( for short Rex) I don’t know what sex it is yet but it fits for a boy and girl

  16. I’m naming mine either Mushu, Sunny, Simba, or Thor and I’m getting a baby beardie on June 5th at a reptile show I’m so excited!! My brother is naming his baby Gax what do you guys think of our name choices

  17. I named my bearded dragon Spike because where I got it from they told me it was a boy one day I decided to check and I found out it was a girl what should I do

  18. I have a beardie, i have no idea how old it is or if its a girl, but he does like to glass surf, which mostly girls do. His/her name is Puff, after Puff the Magic Dragon. My mother decided that she would call him Puff no matter what I decided to name him/her.
