Pokemon Name Inspiration

Inspiration for good nicknames for your Pokemon can come from anywhere! Here are some places where you can draw inspiration for your Squirtle’s name.

  • Your favorite water Pokemon
  • Your favorite TV show or movie with a water theme
  • Water-type Pokémon moves
  • Famous people who have the word “water” in their name
  • Mythological creatures that live in the water

Help Choosing The Right Name

Here are some tips to keep in mind when choosing the perfect nickname for Squirtle.

Pick A Name That You Will Be Comfortable Saying Out Loud

Pick a name that you find comfortable saying out loud if you like to role-play with your friends or if you plan on showing off your Squirtle in online battles.

A nickname that is hard to pronounce can be frustrating for you and your friends.

Pick A Name That Is Easy To Spell And Pronounce

If you plan on showing off your Squirtle online, you want to make sure that other people will be able to spell and pronounce its nickname. Otherwise, you will just end up with a lot of misspellings and mispronunciations.

Avoid Using Inside Jokes

It can be tempting to name your Squirtle after an inside joke that only you and your friends know. However, this can make it difficult for other people to connect with your Squirtle.

Avoid Names That Are Too Similar To Other Pokémon’s Names

While it can be tempting to name your Squirtle after another water Pokémon, such as Blastoise or Vaporeon, you want to avoid using names that are too similar.

Otherwise, you might end up confusing your Pokémon.

Think About Your Favorite Water-Themed Characters

One of the best ways to find inspiration for a nickname is to think about your favorite water-themed characters.

These can be from TV shows, movies, video games, or anywhere else.

Some examples include:

  • Aqua Man
  • Nessie (from the Loch Ness Monster)
  • SpongeBob
  • Squidward
  • The Little Mermaid

Consider Your Squirtle’s Personality When Picking A Name

Every Squirtle is unique, so you want to make sure that you take its personality/nature into account when picking a name.

If your Squirtle is playful, you might want to consider names like “Bubbles” or “Splash.” If it’s more of a timid nature, you might want to go with something like “Nemo” or “Shell.”

Have Fun With It! Picking A Name For Your Squirtle Should Be Enjoyable

Don’t get too stressed out about picking the perfect name for your Squirtle.

At the end of the day, it’s just a nickname and it doesn’t have to be perfect.

Just have fun with it and pick something that you think is cool.


If you’re looking for the perfect nickname for your tiny turtle, look no further! We hope this list of 92 names has given you some inspiration. Whether you want a name that is funny, cool, or cute, we have got you covered.
