250 Cute and Funny Red Panda Names

Red Panda Names

Red pandas are the distant cousins of the adorable giant pandas. Though red pandas do not resemble their distant cousins in appearance, they are irresistibly cute in their way.

If you haven’t seen a red panda, they are slightly larger than a cat yet furry like a bear. Unlike the giant pandas, these guys have a long furry tail and aren’t fat.

Owing to their irresistible cuteness, most people would want to keep a red panda as a pet!

But, it isn’t possible because they are endangered species, and it is illegal to keep them as pets. The only thing you can do is to virtually adopt a red panda through international agencies like the WWF.

But what if one day you get to keep them as pets? Or what if you have an imaginary friend who is a red panda? What will you name them?

Naming a red panda can be quite tricky, right?
