I'm not sure. Suggestions abound and everyone has their favorite. I kind of like Bunji because it's (an) aboriginal word for friend or mate (buddy kind of mate), but then I also found out it is slang for a type of Australian home made... don't know if I can say it here... but you can google. Anyway, I kind of like that double meaning, but it also sounds like bungee, like bungee cords. That could work if he's bouncy, lol.

Then my husband wants to name him something based on a Zappa song. And I don't dislike Zappa, but he's not my favorite. He did suggest 'Peabody', like from Peabody and Sherman, which I liked a lot because I like those cartoons and he's green like a pea.

Anyway... we are totally undecided and he may not have a name until we have him home for a while and see what suits him.

So, please share which Zappa song, inquiry minds want to know?
Love Zappa, saw him play at a small theater in RI. My hubby, boyfriend at the time went to URI & got us 1st row dead center seats. I could have touched him.

Re: Young Eclectus coming soon, help me shop!

My gold coin opinion, Bunji...I like the aboriginal term for mate...the double meaning doesn't matter. Are you in Australia?

I will have to ask him. He gave me a whole list of suggestions, lol. He's out of town right now. I will tell him about your concert adventure, I'm sure his head will explode. Personally, the only Zappa song I really LOVE is Joe's Garage.

Yep, that's a good one.
Actually, I was the one who got hubby into Zappa. So, he got the tix more for me. However, that show did seal the deal. We had every one of his vinyls back in the day.

Re: Young Eclectus coming soon, help me shop!

I went to visit yesterday and since they were running a little late I got to feed him his lunch. So that was cool.

I think we decided on a name. My son and I both said 'Beaker' at the same time and my husband loved it. Since we are all muppet fans and my husband and I are both scientists, it feels appropriate But we'll still have to see if it fits once he gets home.

Re: Young Eclectus coming soon, help me shop!

I like the name Beaker! I commonly call my boy Tucker "beaker peeker" in the morning when he wakes up. He climbs down from his high sleeping perch and peeks under the blanket I cover his cage with. Usually a little whistle or beep/boop noise to get my attention, sticks the beak between the bars for morning greetings, beak rubs, and of course, freedom from the cage lol!

Your soon-to-be baby is absolutely adorable! Congratulations!

Re: Young Eclectus coming soon, help me shop!

Congrats on your new boy!! My guy was born June 3rd or 4th (there were two of them so it depends which one we get). He will be coming home to me soon! I'm super excited as he is in another state and I haven't even met him yet but did get lots of pictures.
I have some toys that I bought and some toys that I made. I will be making a sea grass mat with different types of toys attached which I think will help me figure out what "type" of toys he likes.

You will love those candy-corn Beaker kisses...
