Okay.  I just got a baby male Eclectus Parrot, he's not home with me yet, it will be a few months before he's weaned and ready to come home, but I'm trying to come up with a name for my new little guy.  I figured who better to ask for help than my fellow paranormal fans.  He's bright green (almost limey) with bright blue and red underneath his wings and a candy corn colored beak. 

Here's a few I was thinking of:  Jax, Brody, Stilwell (name of my fave dog trainer), and Mojo.  Not sure if I'm not in love with any of them, so I need some help.  

Any suggestions?

What's wrong with Eric? 

Not thrilled with MoJo.

I thought about Eric, but not sure how well it fits with a bird.

Yay, Kim you're back! How about Sebastian after the hero in your favorite IAD book?  I think that's a cute name.

Maybe a name from the light fae? Trying to think of Sookie's Grandpa's name, but I can't think of it right now...

LOL, that's so funny. I think you should use it!  How do you think your dogs will get along with the new addition?

Hopefully well.  The bird lives with two dogs while it's being weaned, so it should be used to dogs.  And I know a few of my dogs don't bother with my mom's bird, but this one's going to be a bit bigger, and going to be getting my attention as well.  Jealous little buggers might not like it...LOL

You might have a couple of books caught in the crossfire, lol. I do not miss the day when my dog would get jealous and eat my books.

Ricky can be a dimunitive of Eric.  And it is birdy.  Or ERRR- ric.  Kinda of like a chickadee call.  (Can you tell I had chickadees nesting near the window?)

Poopi, haha.  Sadly enough my shih tzu's nickname is poopa.
