Default My newest family member!

I am the proud owner of a crested gecko! Little guy lives in a live terrarium with real plants and everything. I had a blast building it. No name as of yet. He/She cannot be sexed this young without equipment I don't have. SO anyone have any good unisex names? The picture below does not even come close to his color when he is fired up. He is nearly pure black and orange/red. Perfect October colors.

I don't have any unisex names but I am so jellous, I've wanted one for a while now. My brother had one it was awesome!

I'm excited. I've only had him for a night now so no handling for a week or two... I will be strong!

Holy potatoes your terrarium is gorgeous! I love that you used live plants!

I can't think of any names, but I found this list of unisex names (some of them are questionable though haha):

Please update us when you're able to handle him/her

Thank you for the list! I'll be sure to check it out. I'm trying to stick with current theme for little animals which seems to be naming them after nouns, like Rose or Winter. I've liked a few. Granite, right now, is the top contender. I think I'll know more about him when he starts to settle in.

I've already seen him eat which is good because they can go on hunger strikes when first moved into a new setting. He's a little hider, loves being smashed between two leaves.

Interesting fact, like hedgehogs, there are more boys hatched in every clutch than girls. So for now, the he pronoun sticks.

Onyx? Kuro (Japanese for charcoal)? Topaz (for the orange colour)?

We talked about Onyx but it sounded to masculine to me. I mean, what if he is a female? Topaz I like! Definitely a contender now. I'm hoping that one day the name will just feel right.

I haven't had this hard of a time naming something since I named Penny. It took about month for it to feel right for her.
