Choosing Hamster Names
Part of the fun of getting a new pet is choosing his or her name, and Hamsters are no exception. You’ve set up your Hamster’s cage, you’ve given him a jazzy running wheel, the best bedding, and even a few little chewie treats and tunnels to play in.
Now, you just need to give him the perfect name.
We’ve got over 200 of the best hamster names available, and that’s a good thing because did you know that the process of picking out your Hamster’s new name is all a part of the bonding process?
So, take your time, get your friends and family involved, and find the name you think best suits your little fluff face best.
But is naming your Hamster just for you, or is it possible for the little guy to learn his name?
Here’s the deal. While your Hamster may not totally register that his name is actually his name, he can come to know the sounds register it as familiar. In fact, you can teach your Hamster to come when called by saying his name before giving him a tasty treat.
Hamsters actually have great hearing and a decent memory and can begin to associate the sound of their name with something yummy, which can often lead to your Hamster coming to you when you call him.
With that in mind, you may want to pick out a Hamster name that you are totally okay with repeating often, especially if you plan on trying to train your Hamster to come when called.
Alright, let’s get on with it! Let’s take a look at some of the best Hamster names of 2019!
