156 Cute And Funny Penguin Names

Cute And Funny Penguin Names

If you are a kid who grew up watching the cartoons Pingu the penguin or Oswald, I bet you would have dreamt of having a penguin as a pet. Forget these cartoons, who wouldn’t want to keep those cute and chubby penguins?

For me personally, as a kid who grew up watching cartoons, I have always been penguin-mad. Their upright waddling, flappy arms, fluff-ball chicks & the way they toboggan to get around makes me badly want one.

As a kid, I remember asking the Santa for a penguin as a gift and crying on my birthday because I wanted a penguin. Though I never got one, I was all set with a list of penguin names. In this article, I will share a list of 156 cute and funny penguin names with you.

Technically it is impossible to keep a penguin as a pet because they are not anything like your common pets. Feeding them itself is going to cost you a lot and we believe you would be better off with a stuffed penguin! So let’s get going.

Pingu was known for being always hungry & for his weird house parties.
