Question Name Change????

I'm thinking about changing Harley's name (my Hahns Macaw) to Charley.

I think it would be easier for him to learn and for me to say -- rolls off the tongue easier.

What do you think????

Thanks!

I like Charley, but mostly because that was my grandpa's name, lol.
I like Harley too though, but it reminds me of Batman, hahaha.

Hey it's your bird! To birds, words don't mean to much to them unless it is taught. I don't think a couple of days calling him one name and change it to one that's close to the first one is gonna matter to him. If you like it, why not?

Oops! It's Charley -- I already have a name sign on his cage that says "Harley", so I just have to order a "C" -- makes it easier and cheaper! LOL!

You're just like me...I did this with Kiki, and then changed my mind AGAIN! Whatever you decide will be wonderful, Jo Anne.

One of my friends suggested I change his name completely, but I figure this would be easier to get used to. I'm old, remember!
