Maybe try a foreign name or the word for frog in another language.
Grenouille (prononced jen-o-v) the word for frog in french is a good example. A place I've found to be useful is AllAboutFrogs.ORG, the site is a little old but they do have a good bunch of frog names.

The three I have are named Chloe, Orion, and Percival. Not that THEY know that.

Chloe, because I like that name.

Orion, because he has spots on his back in the exact formation of that constellation.

Percival, after Sir Percival, one of the knights of King Arthur's Round Table.

I used to have tomato frogs, named Garamond, Helvetica, Trebuchet, and Plunder. The first three were names of type faces. The last name was because that was what she did to crickets.

I had a European Green Toad named Blossom, because she was absolutely beautiful, like a flower.

You can name a frog anything which pleases you. They will not know the difference.

I will not name my frogs untill I find out their gender. My two baby Caatinga Horned frogs are unnamed right now. I like to name my frogs after characters from a pc game I like. Or a strong name, such as Bruno. That is my 7 inch male African Bullfrog.

I always name my frogs the opposite of what they are. A few examples: my huge Leptodactylus savagei was called "Poco" (small), called my Theloderma corticales "blatant" and "obvious" (because they had such awesome camouflage), my Phyllomedusa tomopternas were all named after big cats (other than tigers), I named all 12 of my Phrynomantis bifasciatus "outgoing" (because they were so shy), my Hypsiboas crepitans were all called "lost" (some call them map treefrogs) etc...I know its kinda dumb, but I enjoyed coming up with opposite names.
