If you want to let your turkey pick its name (which is probably the best option), simply take a look at your turkey’s appearance and personality and see what clicks for you!

You can name it based on your favorite movie actor, character, your favorite book, or an Olympic Athlete. You can also name your turkey after a person that you know well.
