Good names for ducks are spontaneous and unique. My first male mallard (or if you want it could be a girl) duckling is named Armado, pronounced arm-uh-dough or if you want arm-uh-doo. My second female duckling is named Merci pronounced m-air-see. It means thank you in French. As you see mine are merely made up from my first thought from when they pipped! Merci took awhile to pip, precisely 28 days! When she finally had a pip, I thought thank you lord! and merci popped into my mind. With Armado, when he came out of his egg he looked like an armadillo in its little ball. (Now he is normal, I promise) So be spontaneous and remember what you first thought of!
