Owl Names: The 300 Most Popular Names for Owls

Own a pet owl? There are about 200 owl species on every continent except Antarctica and are know to be intriguing but lovable birds. Owls generally have super-powered hearing and have a strong sense of sight with their tube-shaped eyes which solely focus on their prey and boosts depth perception.
