Frogs are small creatures that can be found all around the world and some people like to keep them as pets as well. As long as you build a proper environment you can easily keep some aquatic types of frogs in aquariums at home.
Regardless of whether you get yourself a real frog as a pet or buy a frog plushie, you will have to find the perfect name for it. I thought I’d make this part easier for you and designed a few lists of names, either funny or cute, that I believe would be perfect for a frog.
Lily: YOu might already know that frogs really like to sit on lily pads, in water. This is why the name Lily fits a frog just perfectly.
Pickle: The green color of most frogs makes them look just like pickles. So you surely understand why Pickle would be a cool name for a frog. It is a pretty funny name.
Plutoad: This is a joke around the name of the cartoon character Pluto and the word toad which means frog. Pluto is not only the name of a Disney character but also a planet.

Pluto is portrayed as the pet of Mickey Mouse. It was first a part of a cartoon in 1930 and it didn’t take long for it to become a known star in the cartoon culture.
Plutoad is especially an option if your frog stands out with its facial expressions because Pluto was very loved for his.

Below you will find a few ideas of fun names for a frog.
Lollihop: Considering that frogs move around by hopping, a pun around their way of locomotion really makes sense. Some of them are also colored, which made me think of a pun using those two words. This resulted in Lollihop. This is not only a great name for frogs but can be given to other hopping creatures as well, especially if they are very colored.
Hip Hop: A pun name made from the name of a musical genre would be great, especially for those that like both the music type and the animal itself. Hip hop works great for frogs mostly because they jump around.
Gwen Stefroggy: If you’re a Gwen Stefany fan, then why not give an homage to her with your frog’s name? It sounds really funny to call your frog Gwen Stefroggy, although it might be a mouthful for some people. This is not the only star you can use to name your pet frog. With enough imagination, the sky is the limit.

Hypnotoad: This is a great combination of the word toad and hypnotize. This was actually a character from the TV series Futurama. You will surely get a few smiles out of Futurama fans when they find out you named your pet frog Hypnotoad.
Your frog will surely have a memorable name if you name it after a famous fictional character that people love.
Trevor: You might have heard of Trevor if you’re a fan of the Harry Potter series. This was a pet frog that was given to Neville, from his uncle Algie, as a gift. Trevor will resonate in the ears of Harry Potter fans, but will have little to no meaning to someone that didn’t see the movie series or read the books.
If Trevor isn’t the name you were looking for, maybe these other famous frogs will have more interesting names:
Yoda: You have surely heard of the character Yoda from the movie series Star Wars. Even if you haven’t seen the movie series, his pop-culture popularity has surely reached your ears. Yoda looks just like a frog, which makes this name appropriate. He is known as one of the best Jedi Masters, despite him being small and having a weird way of talking. It is one of the best fighters in the movie.
Snoop Frog: You would surely turn heads if you name your frog Snoop Frog. It’s an homage to the famous rapper and world-known star Snoop Dog. The rapper is considered among the coolest people in the world, which would make your frog also seem cool by association.

Every individual finds a different meaning behind the perfect frog name. However, the names below are among my favorite frog names.
Ribbit: You’ve surely heard the sound a frog makes when trying to communicate with other frogs. It’s just that, a Ribbit. This is why the name Ribbit sounds like a way in which you are trying to talk to your pet. It’s very easy to pronounce and everyone will understand its meaning.
Kermit: Most of us have grown up with the lovely series that featured Kermit the frog as a character. Kermit was one of the Muppets that appeared in both Sesame Street and different Muppet productions. His first appearance on TV screens was in 1955, which makes this frog over half of a century old. The frog was used as the logo of the Jim Henson Company mainly because the character was played by Jim himself.
Kermit was not only a character but also the main host of the Muppet Show. This is why naming your frog Kermit will surely awake some memories in the minds of a lot of people.
One popular genus of frogs goes by the name Pacman frogs. It is a stage name, as their official genus name is ceratophrys. Their stage name comes from their resemblance to the popular characters from the Pacman game.
Paku-Paku: If you were to consider the nickname that these frogs got and their similarity to the characters of the Pacman game, a cuter version of the nickname would be Paku-Paku.
Prince Naveen: You surely know the story of a prince that was turned into a frog, but do you know the name of that prince? It turns out his name is Prince Naveen and the movie is called the Princess and the Frog was first aired in 2009.
