Naming animals can be a fun and amusing activity, especially when the said animal happens to have some unique characteristics. Dogs, cats, rats, mice, hamsters, rabbits, guinea pigs, and probably a few other animals now come in hairless varieties! For those that find them endearing (rather than hideous), a list of clever names may be in order (as they are like potato chips—you just can't have one!).

      I have had a bunch of hairless rats and their names were Chauncy, Blimey and Eegor. Eegor had tons of tumors I was constantly removing and walked really funny. His name was perfect for him. I miss my little Eegsie:(. Other names were Peat, Buddy, Rocky, and Max.
