    Hi Guys!
    I need some help. My sister ( who lives all the way in Brazil ) is going to give me a pet sloth.   I just can't think of a name. If this helps it is a she and it's a three toed sloth. hmmmm...... Please tell me if you have any ideas. I'm all ears. hmm

      I think you should name him socks.  So that you can confuse all your friends. :-)

    Try this random name generator.  I got "Elfrieda Bienvenida" on my first try, it seems like a reasonable sloth name to me:


    Gender: Feminine
    Usage: English
    Means "elf strength" from the Old English element ælf combined with þryð "strength". The use of this name was revived in the 19th century.


    Gender: Feminine
    Usage: Spanish
    Pronounced: byen-be-NEE-dhah   [key]
    Derived from Spanish bienvenido meaning "welcome".

    Enteresting to have a sloth as a pet. How about the name Pogo? Have fun and good luck with your pet. I'm sure you don't have to chase it around the house.big_smile

    If your sloth is coming from Brazil, maybe you could choose a Portuguese word for its name. Something that means something to you, or just something you like the sound of.

    I like Quinta, myself.

    You may not want name your sloth Thursday, though. wink

    I like naming things after words that may be a joke/pun. Slugabed would be amusing for a sloth.. That or Nitro if you want to go with irony...

    How about " Molasses ", Sloth,s move as slow as molasses, re: thick brown syrup, that pours very slowly.

    I'm guessing by now the sloth has a name.  I can't remember the name of the sloth in Ice Age,.

    How about Ziggy (just different) or Speedy?  Ziggy sounds more like a lizard name, maybe.

    What a great thread!  Inquiring minds want to know if you've chosen a name!  And, yes, I want to know too - where DO you get a pet sloth?  Where do you keep it?  Interesting....

    I like the suggestions based on "speed" or lack thereof.  Don't sloths sleep in trees, hanging upside down?  How about "Topsy"  (for topsy-turvey)?

    Good luck - we want to see photos!

    Caryl Oliverposted 8 years ago

    I have read the whole thread and still need to know:

    Did the Sloth arrive?
    What did it get called? (it's not like you need a name you can call out in the park, is it?)
    How is it? (living comfortably under the couch or in a mansion in the yard?)
    What tricks have you taught it so far? (rush out and alert you just as visitors are leaving?)

    OMG a sloth?  They are the most adorable animals ever.  You probably named her by now, but I've always been fond of Margot.
