Default VOTE! Help name the finches!

I've kept Lady Gouldian finches for several years. Back when I used to travel for a living, they were the perfect "pet" because, frankly, they didn't care if I was home or not.

So, I recently got some more finches to add to the flock here. I gave away Violet, my only girl, and its now an all boys club.

There are 4 new boys, and they all need names.

My old guys are:
Edgar (papa bird)
and
Joe and Joey (identical red headed)

The names I am considering are:

Gus (Lydia recently named her new dog this, and I LOVE it!)
Pie (the yellow guy reminds me of lemon meringue)
Jupiter
Harry
Winston
Buck
Jasper
Rex
Monty
Skip
Clint
Vinnie

4 names needed in total. Here are their photos

#1 looks like a Jupiter to me - he's so pretty, he's out of this world!
#2 Gus - my last sweet dog was named Gussie, so that's a favorite name of mine
#3 Pie (what else?)
#4 new guy 4 is so sophisticated, he must be a Winston

Good grief, I can't believe I'm having fun sitting here naming finches. I don't know anything about them, and certainly didn't know they came in so many colors! Thanks for making me smile so early in the morning, Diane.

PS: My dog Riley would love to steal Ernie's ball from him.

Monty (Full Monty), Vinnie (I'm Italian), Pie ( after Marta!), and Jasper cause it sounds cool.

How about Atticus Finch, after the lawyer in To Kill A Mockingbird? Or, Scout after the nickname for the daughter? My parakeet's name is Beau Peep.

Monty for the "full monty" or Monty Python? Either one works for me!

I'm keeping a tally... & love the new suggestions too! I think that New Guy #4 is going to be Atticus.

My son threw the name Galileo into the mix.

Atticus was a clever suggestion (Helen); and with Galileo now in the mix, this is now becoming more "intellectually" oriented. Hmmmm..... need to ponder awhile.

So, Rose, you have 7 birds all together? The cage must be getting crowded!?!
(I do think the 4-yr. old naming the twins Joe & Joey is too funny!)
