I name half my creatures after Pokemon, and I come up with witty or cheesy names for any other Dino’s most of the time. 

Two of my quetzals are named Laputa (the name of the castle in the sky in movie of same name) and Southeast Airlines (joke on Southwest Airlines and the fact I tamed said quetzal in the southeast part of the map)

I have a tapejara named Tom Haverford, just because I felt like it, honestly. My male daeodon is named Ron Swanson for his incredible appetite for meat, and I named my poop phiomia Jerry because it’s mostly useless.

I named my favorite Dimorph after my pet lovebird, Ginkgo, and I named one of my otters after one of my favorite animal crossing villagers due to their similar color schemes.

I was fortunate enough to get a basilo with an orca’s color scheme, so I named it Shamu.

I ALWAYS name my jerboas Muad’Dib, after the Fremen name for jerboas/kangaroo nice in Dune.

My favorite rock elemental, and the only one with a name, is called Rocky the Rock.

My boss battle Daeodon and yuty are named Napoleon (animal farm) and Leeroy Jenkins, respectively.

My first triplets (dimorphodons, naturally) were named after the furies: Megaera, Tisiphone and Alecto.

My first black wyvern with orange wings I called Amaterasu, a shoutout to the anime geek in me that watched too much of Naruto and the Amaterasu ability “black flames.”

My giga on my Center game I called Ereshkigal, after the Mesopotamian goddess of death.

And not mine, but my friend’s eagle that I just find clever and hilarious: Joan of Ark

I don’t know how many will consider it “clever” or just think I’m a nerd, but a huge slew of my pets have received mythological or cultural names, generally applicable to their role. My three gigas all were named for death deities, my first dimorphodon was named Hermes, etc. All my wyverns but two received names borrowed from deities, as have a bunch of my dimorphodons. As for “clever,” “creative,” or “nerdy,” you be the judge, lol.

Turtles named after gemstones - Sapphire, Topaz, Garnet, Beryl
Rex - Ruby (she's a beautiful red)
Brontos - (legacy) high level male is Bamm Bamm.....also had Fred, Wilma, Barney and Betty
Brontos - Tchaikovsky, Constanze (Mozzart's wife)
Doed - Emperor Seacrest (he was blue), Pebbles (Flinstones, and she pulverized rock)
Scorpions named after Shakespeare  characters
Equus - No Name, Derby
Pachys named after I Love Lucy characters - Ricky, Lucy, Fred, Ethel
Wolf - London (Jack London)
Therizinio - Sparkles, Shimmer
