300+ Lemur Names [Best, Cute and Funny]

Did you become a fan of lemur by watching the Madagascar film franchise? Well, no doubt that it is not only you who did that! Are you looking for a great name for a lemur? Well, you have come to the right destination. Before taking you to the great list of names and a surprise in this article, let us have a basic introduction about lemurs.

Lemurs are indigenous animals belonging to Madagascar on the eastern coast of Africa. Research says that they are related to monkeys and apes. However, a recent study has declared them to be an entirely different animal with a superfamily consisting of 5 individual lemur families and more than 120 species.

By feature, it has been observed that lemurs generally have a strong sense of smell. They have pointy snouts and wet noses, and weird-looking eyes. Due to their weight and hairless nose, they are excellent sniffers. They are generally small in size, and you can often mistake them to be a mouse or a smaller-sized fox. Typically, lemurs have a bright skin coat, which varies depending on the species. In most cases, they are generally black, brown, or white. It has often been found that even male and female lemurs have different fur.

Sadly, the lemurs have been declared to be the world’s most endangered group of mammals. Among the 100 species of lemurs, the aye-aye is considered one of a kind with its rough black hair and white tips. It is also noted for its rodent-like incisor teeth (which help them to gobble up big barks of trees and hard nuts.) The best part of the aye-aye is their middle finger which they apparently use for searching and grabbing grubs. Along with that, they have superb sensitive ears (with which they help to locate the grubs).

They are now coming to the habitat which is preferable for the lemurs. Well, since Madagascar is the only place where lemurs are found, it is obviously natural that lemurs are best suited to the different climates of Madagascar (which has a high mountain range). Most lemurs spend their life being on the high trees, finding grubs feeding their little ones, and so on. They are known to feed on small things like fruits insects. In some cases, it has been observed that the larger lemurs tend to eat large fruits and huge barks of trees.

Want to hear an interesting fact? The Alaotran gentle lemur is far more intelligent than the other mammals. This is because it has adapted itself more suitably to the weather of Madagascar- in the wet marshland region in the eastern area of Madagascar.

For such a rare animal that is difficult to pet indeed, you must have a great name in mind. That is why we created this article for you. Not only are we providing a list of names but also there’s a surprise! Read on this article to find some fantastic tips and tricks that will help you choose the best name for a lemur.

How To Name A Lemur

Since lemurs are the least chosen for a pet, it is understandable if you face difficulties selecting the best name for one. If you still have not found the best possible name for your pet from the name mentioned above list, there is no need to freak out. With the help of the tips and tricks given below, you can be successful in the naming process. Make sure to go through the steps correctly.

Have An Essence Of Madagascar In The Name

Because lemur is only found in different regions in Madagascar, it would be pretty great to add a touch of Madagascar in the name. Now how would you do that? Well, as obvious it is, you need to research a lot. Let us give you an example. The name for a ring-tailed lemur in Madagascar is Maky. You can choose this name for your pet. Other than that, in colloquial language, Madagascar is often known as Maddie. You can select this name too.

Also, you can always make a name for a lemur based on the Madagascar movie. The main lemurs in that movie were King Julian, Morris, Mort etc. There is no harm in allowing these famous names to your pet.

Write Down The Names

If you thought that the naming process was just a piece of cake and you would complete it within one hour, well, dear readers, you are wrong. Think about it. Can you ever create a good name for a baby within one hour? No, right? Similarly, it is not possible to do so for your rare pet. Find out some time from your busy schedule, pull out the creativity within you and start to think out of the box. Wait, that’s not it. Do not just think about the names you want to choose for your lemur; instead, it is advisable to write them down. Otherwise, we assure you that you will simply forget the names within minutes.

Therefore, once you are done reading the tips and tricks in this article, put your phone down, get up and take a pen and paper and write down whatever name you think is best for a lemur.

After that, let us proceed to the second step that must be followed.

Eliminate The Bad Names

Eliminating the bad names will help you create the preferred list of names suitable for a lemur. Now how will you do that? It’s simple. Just take a name and call it out to the lemur. If it responds to the name properly and you find the name to be easy to remember and pronounce, congratulations! You have chosen a great name. In this way, find out the suitable names for the lemur and simply strike out those which are not fit into the criteria.

If luck is not in your favor and you find out that all the names are horrible for a lemur, please do not get demotivated. It is always okay to start afresh.

Do Not Choose A Long Name

Be it any pet, long names are absolutely terrible-especially when it comes to a lemur. Considering the fact that they are small-sized with weird-looking eyes and a strange middle finger, it would not really look good to have a long name for such an animal. Therefore, we advise you to find out the notable traits which the lemur has and make a name out of them. But remember to make the name within two words, and that’s it. Also, make sure that the name is easy to remember and pronounceable. Secondly, the lemur should find the name easy to respond to.
