Some feel it's best to wait and get a feel for your friends personality (and they do have them!). At the aquarium where I work we get kids to name them usually, unless we want it to tie in with a theme, for example the past school holidays we had a pirate theme so our octis were called "Cap'n Black Beak" and "Long John Slither" only HE turned out to be SHE and is now "Long Jenny Slither" :roll:

Other names we've had have been:

Harry (Houdini), Henry (the Wiggles), Mrs Henry (the Wiggles again only female), Dr Mike (Local GP), Plasma (Kids named), Trev (Kids named), Bob (kids named), Octavius (Kids named), O'Shea (in honour of Dr O'Shea's visit), Earle (in honour of Dr Sylvia Earles visit) and so on!

Cheers

Look at the List of Our Octopuses at the top of the Journals and Photos forum. You can see what names people have chosen for their octopuses in the past.
