The Ultimate List of 770 Names for Your Duck

Some people think I am bonkers for naming all my animals. I say: THEY are the ones who are bonkers. Every duck has its own personality and their own good looks. Their waddling butts, fluffy feathers, antics, charm, and demeanor make them each unique.

There’s another matter to bear in mind, male and female ducks both get extremely aroused during the mating season. So much so that females will often mate with other females.

Mallard drakes – and others who are desperate – also often swing both ways. To date, I haven’t heard of any complete trans ducks yet. 🤭

For this reason, they each need a name that suits their looks and personality. But what should you name your waddling quackers?

From the dignified to the snobby to the super cool to the famous to the lighthearted, I have some great ideas for you to consider. I hope this article will help you with your naming challenge.
