Not ready for a dog? Hamsters make great first pets for children!

Naming Your New Hamster

You recently went to the pet store and “tried on” all of the animals that they had there. The birds were way too loud, the fish were all too boring, your stomach turned at the thought of feeding a mouse to a snake, and the other reptiles were just not cuddly enough.

Then something caught your eye: The motion of a wheel turning and turning and this adorable little ball of fur keeping it going. You watched in awe as this little thing shot off the wheel, dove into its tunnel, and squeezed its way to the very top to peek at you.

"That’s the one: the hamster," you said. The perfect pet. And now, the perfect name....

Hamsters make great pets because not only are they small and cute, but they're also easy to bond with, quiet, simple to care for, and not too expensive. Plus, since they are contained in a cage, so is any mess they make.

There are as many reasons to love that adorable little fuzzball as there are names to name it! When it comes to sorting through numerous hamster names, one will surely stand out from the others, ultimately becoming your hamster’s name.

Try looking through the following list of hamster names to see if there is one for your hamster!

Chongo
Beefcakes

Hamlet
Paul Bunyan

Funny and clever names are great for pets. Our favorite? Puns! You can't spell hamster without “ham,” so why not give it a name that you can’t spell without “ham”?

Male Hamster Names

 
 
 
Maximilian
Franklin
Teddy
Buster
Gus
Caesar
Lucius
Bernard
Pepper
Rex
Sparky
Tiny
Taz
Pablo
Jo Jo
Larry
Cooper
Ripley

A lot of people enjoy giving their male hamsters macho names, such as "Monster" or "Rex." Names like these are fun for boys, especially since hamsters are such rough and tough pets!

Female Hamster Names

 
 
 
Lady
Pearl
Goldilocks
Holly
Lily
Tinkerbell
Bonnie
Gretel
Honey
Cinderella
Peppermint
April
Magenta
Maggy
Cashmere
Precious
Dolly
Snow White

Females often have cute, sweet-sounding names and are often named after food. Sweet food, though, because girls are sweet!

Let Your Hamster Help Pick Its Name

And the list goes on. As you can see, there are a whole lot of names to choose from.

  • If you really can’t think of a name that goes well, or if you are stuck between a few names, take a paper plate and write some names on it, spacing them out well. Next to each name, place different foods: a piece of cheese, hamster food from the pet shop, maybe a cracker and a piece of carrot. Whichever the hamster goes for first will be its name!
  • Another fun way to let the hamster “choose” its name is to place it in a hamster ball if you have one, and place a bunch of sticky notes with different names on them on the outside of the ball. Whichever one falls off the ball first is the name!
  • If you have a really curious hamster that wanders into other rooms, assign a name to each room, decide on a time, and let your hamster loose for ten minutes. Whichever room the hamster is in when the time is up determines the name!

Deciding on a Hamster Name

Whatever names you are choosing between, make sure you take a long look at the hamster for a sign that it's a good fit.

If you're thinking about naming the little guy Bob, but he doesn't “look” like a Bob (and there’s a chance he won't!), then maybe the name Bob should not be considered for your hamster.

(Unless you really, really want to name him Bob; it’s personal preference, of course. I think you get the point!)

      I have 2 chinese male hamsters called Rocco and Tinsel! I call Rocco 'Rocky' for short an Tinsel 'Tinsey-too!' Love my hamsters, but had to be split up due to fighting which is unusual for this breed! Make sure you have enough time to keep one and try and get them out often, feed them but keep the food in the bowl until the last piece has gone so that they eat the good healthy nuggets as well. Aim to give them fresh water every other day (i sometimes accidentally skip this if i'm busy!) LOVE HAMSTERS! Peace!

      I have three hamsters but two of them are my sisters. Their names are (Chinese Dwarf Hamsters): Penelope and Miranda. I used to have one of those but she died like a week after I got her. (Fancy Bear Lysiarn Hamster) but I don't know her name? If the hamster is fat call it Big Mac or mrs big mac.

      My daughter had a really cutand chubby orange and white Syrian hamster and she named her Cheesepuff! (R.I.P our sweet Cheesepuff) I thought that named was very fitting. Now she has a small black and white Bear hamster that she named Oreo. And she plans to get this brown hamster we saw in the pet shop and she is going to name that one Reesespuff!

      I picked butterscotch because one of my hamster are a light brown and my other hamster's name is Snowball because it really suits her and she is a very energetic hamster, she goes on her wheel all the time and she is ALWAYS in her tube. and she is a pure white hamster and usually I call the fat one fatty or pumkin or hammy and I call the whte one sweetie or flash. I really like this sight and it inspired me to make my own sight about hamsters and pet names for all types of pets or any types of owners. Thank you very much for this sight and I will visit it again for more hamster names because I'm getting a third hamster for my 15th birthday. THANK YOU VERY MUCH!!!! :D
