List Rules Vote up the funniest, most clever names to give pet chameleons.

Whether you’re a first-time chameleon owner or a longtime cham fan, you know that finding the perfect name for your lizard is important. If you need chameleon name ideas, you’re in the right place. This list of chameleon names includes a wide variety of choices.

Rango is a great name for a chameleon – and an excellent movie. And if you want another potential pet chameleon name idea, why not go with Pascal from Disney’s Tangled?  If you’d prefer funny or punny chameleon names, there are plenty of those, too. Karma would be a great choice (from the song “Karma Chameleon”), as would El Chamino or even Cham Newton. If you’re going the celebrity route with names for pet chameleons, why not consider other chameleon name puns, like Chamuel L. Jackson, Chameleo Estevez, or even Chamron Diaz?

Of course, one way to pick clever and creative chameleon names is to choose a moniker that describes a pet. In this case, with a chameleon, names like Camo (or Camouflage if you’re going more formal), Rainbow, Tie-Dye, Patches, Prism, or Glimmer would all be appropriate. 

Hopefully, this list of good names for chameleons will inspire you as you choose your new pet’s name. Vote for your favorites, and add your own unique names to the list, too.
