What is a turkey name generator?

A turkey name generator is a simple printed page that combines two funny words to create a fictitious “turkey name” for each person in your family.

Using the first letter of their first name and their birth month, your family members can find out what their silly turkey name is!

For example, my funny turkey name is Puffy Potatobottom because my first name begins with “J” and my birth month is November.

Here are the other silly turkey names for my five kids:

  • Fluffy Potatobottom
  • Puffy Gravytrain
  • Corny Featherpants
  • Silky McGobble
  • Salty Gravytoes

Funny, right?!

(FYI: The page shown above has a watermark purposely placed in the center of the page. The printable available in the Free Printable Library does not have a watermark!)
