Congratulations on your new pet turtle! Now it’s time to get to naming. We’ve gathered some great boy turtle names in one place to make the process a little easier.

Cool boy turtle names are generally everyone’s first stop in a name search, with The Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles making an appearance. Donatello, Leonardo, Michelangelo, and Raphael are forever favorites. Loaded with class and cartoonish spirit, you can’t go wrong with any of them. You can also try out Franklin, as in the children’s cartoon, or Filbert, as in the nerdy turtle from Rocko’s Modern Life. Other cool boy turtle names from media include Cecil from Looney Tunes, Crush and Squirt from Finding Nemo, and Pokemon’s Squirtle.

Cute boy turtle names are always a hit too. Often bearing a quirky cuteness, these male turtle names include adorable monikers like Kirby, Stewart, and Gus. You can also find action-themed names among them, like Flash, Flip, and Chase. Cute boy turtle names can mirror the U.S. Top Ten Boy Names, including modern darlings like Liam, Noah, and Oliver. These picks have a boyish charm you can’t help but love.

On the flip side, unique male turtle names help your new pet stand apart, with rare names like Seamus, Beasley, and Capps fitting the bill. These rare finds often have meanings that make for good boy turtle names, like Valentino’s “strong and healthy.” You can also try out Constantine, meaning “constant,” as in the turtle’s infamous pace in the race against the hare.

Other pet turtle names have ties to water gods, such as Poseidon. This ancient Greek god ruled the seas. You might also like his son’s name, Triton. His Roman god of the sea counterpart is Neptune, while his Hindu equivalent is Varuna.

We hope you find a favorite amongst our collection of boy turtle names.
