The flamingos were known in earlier Mongolian naming as Нал дэглий nal deglii 'ruby heron'. The form Нил дэглий nil deglii 'violet heron' also exists.

The 2007 Ornithological List uses the word 'ruby' as the name of the bird, as in Ягаан нал yagaaŋ nal 'pink ruby'. The name дэглий deglii is reserved for the genus Ardea.
