Help me with naming, pretty please, lol

So as I've posted I'm adopting a linnie mid February. He/she is just a baby right now, and I'm having a heck of a time choosing a name. I had chose one (dory) but I'm not loving the thought of it anymore. The breeder told me to try to think of one now so she could start calling baby by it. She's 3 hours away so I can't even go for a visit. The names I have so far are:
Joey or linnie, or stormy?? Any pretty names suggestions u have throw them my way! Lol. Thanks guys

If you must steal, steal away from bad company. If you must cheat, cheat death. And if you must drink, drink in the moments that take your breath away.

I hate trying to pick unisex names! You could do cute names like blueberry and call it BB or I think Rio means blue or something... food items tend to be cute and gender neutral. I knew someone who named their dog peek a boo and called it peeka. You could also call it boo. Lou is cute, call it lou or lulu.

I like Joey too... that's my blue budgie's name.

Lulu is a very cute name...I've always wanted to use it for a bird, but I already have a Juju so it seems a little redundant. Someone on another forum has a bird named Lou Lou -- he was named Lulu in a previous home, but they didn't know he was male. I really like the masculine form actually.

I have had linnies in the past named Linnie and Boo. Boo is actually in my avatar. I have a blue headed pionus named Rio and a white cap pionus baby named Lou Lou.

What about Quinn? I knew a girl named Quinn. I thought it was cute male or female and different.

Thanks for all the ideas guys! I love Joey and now Quinn, lol. So hard to choose. I keep waiting for it to just click, and it's not, hahahaha

I know what you mean Kim.

I've just gone through that same process re-naming my budgie, who I originally thought was a little girl, and named Skye, but now know to be a little boy.

I went through literally hundreds of names I found on the Internet, and in the end settled on Gizmo. What a difference, from Skye to Gizmo.

Cheers,

John.

I know what you mean. I has seveeal names picked for my linnie but none just clicked. I ended up naming her something completely different.
