1000+ Hamster Name Ideas: Hamster Names For Boys & Girls!

Being a pet owner, it can be a big responsibility for you to choose a perfect name for your little friend. The name you choose for your Hamster will say as much about you and your family’s relationship to your pet as it says about the animal.

I tried coming up with 100’s of names before I got the right one for my pet Hamster. I wonder that some of you guys might also be going through the same phase.

To help you get started, here are some tips on how you can decide on a pet name that everyone can happily live with!

Choosing The Right Name For Your Hamster

It can sometimes be a tough task to pick a name for your Hamster.

Listed below are a few things that you can keep in mind before keeping a name for your pet Hamster.

Get Inspired by Your Life

You can also name your pet based on your life experiences or inspirations. Sounds weird, right? But these will build even a stronger bond between you and your Hamster.

Lets say, you love chocolate spreads, then don’t you think, ‘Nutella’ will be the best option?

Or say chemistry is your favorite subject in school, then you can always go with ‘Nickel’.

Get Inspired By Your Hamster’s Appearance And Personality

You can definitely choose a name for your Hamster based on their appearance or personality.

To learn more about the personality of your Hamster you will have to observe them intently.

Let’s say, your Hamster looks much more like a mouse, then why not name your Hamster, ‘Mouse’.

Or say, your Hamster’s fur is brown, then why not name him ‘Brownie’.

Decide Whether You Want A Common Name Or A Unique Name

Deciding whether you want to choose a common name or unique name is one of the factor you can consider.

You can always go for common names like Ben, Tim, or Fudge or unique name like Neon, Sky, or Disco for your Hamster.

Ask Suggestions From Your Friends And Family

You can always ask the opinions of your family and friends for the name of your Hamster. Trust me, this will make your task much easier.

Create a List of Acceptable Names

It is suggested to sort out the list and pick out few of your favorite names from the list for your little furry friend.

After taking suggestions from your friends and family make a list of all the names that came across the conversation..

Making a list will help you settle your thoughts.

After you are done with the list, then you and your family may come to a common ground, and go on from there.

Learn to Compromise

It is very important that your family is happy with the name you have finalized for your pet.

As a parent you can finalize the name but it is suggested to always take suggestions from your family and friends.

When you pick a name with your loved ones, it ensures that everyone has a connection with your little furry friend.

I hope now you have a framework in mind by now which shall help you go through the list of Hamster names below and choose the perfect match for your little furry companion.

Here is a pretty cool sign board that I found on Amazon.

Do Hamsters Know Their Name?

Hamsters do remember their names. They understand and relate sounds from particular behaviors and responses.

Stick to one particular name if you want your Hamster to respond to you. Also, always try to call out the name in one tone.

Whenever you feed your Hamsters with treats, try to call out their names loud and clear.

Patience is the key, give your Hamster some time, such things cannot happen overnight.
