Not my style (none of the bird names are), but if Wren, Lark, and Finch work, why not Canary?

I would rather use either Amos or Arrow, the names of my two canaries. Well, for boys, that is. The birds were both male.

Just convention and social norms, but not easy to be one of the first with a name like this. I hear Sparrow, increasingly.

I don't really see what makes Canary any different than Lark or Wren.
