Hi everyone, I created this acount to ask you guys any suggestions on my new *not even 1yr* Hermann!
I will create a new acount which will be my actual acount with the tortoise's name

Any suggestions? Also a pic of him eating breakfeast- Attached File  534945_2858362712719_1669186722_1695133_1826191762_n.jpg   149.07KB   23 downloads

Posted Image to the forum, it is difficult name a tort when they can't really be sexed until four years old. I recently heard of a tortoise called Hermione, which would be a fantastic name for a female Hermann, it is a Greek name and means messenger. The male version of this is Hemes :)

I called my two Ollie (Cromwell) and Winnie ( Churchill) after tanks..because they barge around like wee panzers..so maybe Matilda, Sherman, Grant? Then again..now that I think about it ....you could name them after dodgy politicians!

Get to know your tort and a suitable name will just spring to mind.

I called Gigidy after Quagmire (in family guy who chases the ladies)
Nellie (the heffalump... my biggest)
Jazz, chilled and relaxed
Ami (permanant white nose from limestone flour)
Mia ( looks like Ami but has a smudge/smear on her markings)
Rolf , spent most of the time when he first arrived down under..
