“A sugar glider by any other name would be as sweet…”

-Probably not William Shakespeare


Chances are good that, if you’ve brought home a sugar glider from The Pet Glider, that little bundle of furry joy had a name.  As the primary person in charge of showcasing our gliders on the website, most of those names are picked by yours truly, the author.  Oddly enough, that process can be a surprisingly time-consuming one, and often the most difficult part of actually presenting a glider to the world at large. The methods can include researching lists of baby names around the world, plays on the parents names or physical traits, gut feelings (“This one looks like Erasmus…”), and quick polls of other Pet Glider staff (“Doesn’t he look like an Erasmus?”).  Everything else is fairly elementary when posting a glider...after all, it *is* a certain color, and it *has* an out of pouch date.  But *who* is this glider?  There, my friends, is the rub.

Of course, all of this is done with the expectation that you, the new sugar glider parent, will be changing that name almost immediately.

While there are certainly far more important aspects of sugar glider care such as what diet you should feed your glider, what toys to have in the cage, and how to bond with your glider, the name that you give your new friend can be the first step in that long-lasting link between human and animal.  As a quick wander through the Pedigree Program will show, there are an incredibly wide variety of glider names out there from the cute and quirky to the surprisingly formal.  For some, picking that perfect name is a breeze, but for others, such as myself from time to time, it can be quite the challenge.  That’s why I’d like to offer a few of the resources and methodology behind the naming of gliders here at The Pet Glider.

There’s nothing more rewarding about owning a pet than getting to spend time together learning about each other, and slowly adapting to each other’s ways. Not only does it benefit us as pet owners to be able to enjoy our pets in this way, our pets themselves experience the benefit of finding someone they can trust to take care of and protect them. It is for precisely this reason that we started a promotion last May to give away a free bonding kit, and the best part is, it’s been extended to August 31st!
