260 Guppy Names For Your New Pet Guppy!

Guppies are one of the most commonly kept fish in the fish-keeping hobby and many people like to give their guppies individual names.

After seeing several people reaching out and asking for some guppy name ideas, I decided to publish this article going over the four main types of guppy names I see people requesting.

This article has suggestions for male guppy names, female guppy names, and names based on the color of your guppy.

Many of the names in these categories can have other meanings too so I’m confident that you will be able to find the perfect name for your new guppy in this article!

The vivid hues and patterns on guppies often inspire individuals to name their fish based on the dominant color of its body.

This is a very common naming strategy but some colors are far more common on guppies than others.

That’s why I have focused my color-based names on blue, orange, red, and yellow guppies as they seem to be the most common colors by far.
