Frogs make great pets because they come in varying sizes, shapes, colors, and they’re relatively easy to care for. For this reason, I created a list of clever names and a name generator to help you name your beloved amphibian(s).
I suspect if you’re searching for names for your pet frog or toad, you’ve already got one; or plan to get one soon. Whether you’re searching for a cute, funny, or famous name for your pet, you’ll find it here.
Directly below this paragraph, you’ll find a frog name generator. Select Male, Female, or Both, and if you want the last name, tick the check box. After that, click the “Generate Names” button. The name generator will load 9 names. Should you want more, click the button again to load more!

Tips for Naming Your Pet Frog or Toad
Naming any pet can be a fun endeavor. This is especially true when naming Anura (frogs and toads). The reason it’s fun naming Anurans is that coming up with funny or cute names, with the use of puns, is quite entertaining! By combining frog-related words together, one can come up with interesting combinations.
For example, “Bufo” is short for the family Bufonidae, which are “true toads”. Toads have stumpy legs and tend to move in short hops. Combining the words with a twist can result in a silly name like “Bufo McHopperson” or “Sir Bufo Stumps”.
For this reason, I’ve created a list of frog-related words. Use this list to formulate some ideas. By the way, many of these ideas are part of the frog name generator above!
A list of frog-related words…
The table below contains the scientific names of some of the taxonomic ranks. An “order” or “family” is a taxonomic rank, a means of classifying or grouping similar types of animals.
|Frog||Frogby, Frogger, Froggo, Frogster, Froggy|

|Dendrobatidae||Dendro, Dendo, Denny|
|Amphibian||Amp, Amph, Phibby, Amphibby, Amphibber|
|Lily Pad||Lily, Paddy, Lily Paddy, Lil Pad, Lil Paddy|
Here I’ll elucidate some of the terms above.
- The order Anura includes all frogs and toads.
- The family Bufonidae includes all “True Toads”.
- Pollywog (or “polliwog”) is a another word for tadpole.
- The family Dendrobatidae includes poison-dart frogs.
