I am needing to create a standard naming list for the turtles at my rescue and so I was hoping some of you could help me out a bit. All I need is for all who want to help to list 5 boy and 5 girl "turtle names" (or more if you wish) and this will be used to compile a list that will be applied to the turtles that don't have names now and the new ones that come in. Anyone who helps will receive a follow up image of the turtle that gets one of your names :D Thanks in advance.
PS: Ninja Turtles names are already taken by my pond turtles lol :p

Speedy and pokey :turtle:

Oops! Didn't read the above name correctly, I thight it was porkey and not pokey...
And @mgmine
LOL! My 2 adult boxies [ I no longer have them :( ], the parents to my babies, were named "Zippo" and "Speedy." Despite common belief, turtles are fast -- relatively speaking.....

BTW, @Marshall , not my contributions -- still thinking....

I have a Linux program that I made that will take all the names and randomly select one and also tell me who submited it so they get the credit as far as voting goes I have no problem with it if you all want to come up with a way to vote. I though about letting the engine pick 3 names and then posting the turtles pic to let you all vote for the name to use from the three?
