Human Names for Birds (and Vice Versa)

We consider our pets part of our family. When you choose your pet’s name, you will feel closer to them.

It is not surprising that popular bird names are also top choices for human babies such as Isabella and Ava.

The trend is interestingly reversed. We love to give names to our birds and we love to name our babies.

Many baby boys and girls have bird-inspired names, from classics like Robin to modern, trendy choices like Wren and Phoenix.

Need Pet Care?

You’ll likely need someone to care for your pet while you are away. Even though pet birds are not dependent on walking, they still require care when you’re away.

It’s easy to find one person who can care for all your furry friends, whether they are dogs, cats, or other pets. Rover is the perfect solution.

You can find the perfect pet match right from your smartphone and then go on the road.
