List Rules Vote up the funniest names to give pet roosters.

If you’ve got a rooster roaming around, he needs a name, pronto. This list of names for roosters might help. It includes some cool and funny rooster names. You’ll find a new moniker for your new friend in no time flat.

Roosters are male chickens. They rule the, well, the roost. And they’re not just kept for mating purposes. Roosters help protect the female chickens, or hens, by warning (loudly!) of danger or fighting off predators. They also may gather or find food for the hens, alerting them (again, loudly!) when they do.

Some of the best rooster name ideas are the most obvious. Foghorn Leghorn is a famous cartoon rooster, and arguably the most famous of them all. The Kellogg’s Corn Flakes rooster is also famous and his name is “Cornelius.” That’s a great name for a rooster.

If you’re into rooster name puns, the possibilities are virtually endless. Some of the funniest rooster names include Gregory Peck, Russell Crow, Cluck Norris or even Henry Pecked (get it?). Other cool or creative rooster names include Dr. Pecker, Professor McWattles, or Randy Rooster.

Plenty of excellent names for pet roosters are born from their appearance. Does your rooster have a particularly pronounced comb or growth on its head? Consider naming him Spike! If he’s bright red all over, definitely consider Little Red or Big Red.

Vote up your favorite funny or punny rooster names, and feel free to add your own if they aren’t listed.
