Names for Hamsters

Filed under: hamster names — Dr. Amber Reed @ 9:20 am

After getting a pet hamster for your little one, naming them is the next important step.

The name should be easy to pronounce. Determine the gender of your hamster before deciding on a name or else you might end up calling your female hamster ‘Alex’.

It is very important to pick a proper hamster name. It’s not a good idea to change it later. Changing your hamster’s name once it has grown used to it can confuse the little creature and it may not respond to your calling. Your hamster will learn its name with some training and will respond to it.

Hamsters have a lifespan of two to three years but they can live longer than that. Try keeping a name that your child can recall when cherishing the memory of his/her beloved pet. Below are a few ideas of hamster names that you can keep.
