Fun fact: I'm from the Canary Islands♥

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

paulapuddephatt Says:


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

paulapuddephatt Says:


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.
