List Rules Vote up the funniest, most clever names to give pet turtles or tortoises.

So, you’ve got a new pet turtle or tortoise, and you're looking for a name - but not just any name. You need creative and clever turtle name ideas. This list of turtle names might be just what you need. It compiles some of the cutest, funniest, and coolest turtle names around for your voting pleasure.

Of course, some of the most popular names for tortoises and turtles would have to be the fab four: “Raphael,” “Michelangelo,” “Donatello,” and “Leonardo” from TMNT. If you love the pop culture references, why not go for “Bowser” or “Voldetort” as possibilities? They’re certainly good pet turtle names.

Classically cool turtle names include “Speedy,” “Snappy,” “Zippy,” and “Turbo” - see a theme here? For the more philosophical turtle, consider “Aristurtle.” Or, if you’re literary minded, you can’t go wrong with “Mary Shelly” or even “Mock Turtle” (from Alice in Wonderland).

And now, it’s time to vote for the best pet turtle name ideas. Vote up the funny ones you really think would be great for your new pet - and feel free to add more to the list to help others who are also in need of perfect, punny turtle names.
