Cute Hamster Names

You are probably going to be with your pet hamster for about 2 – 3 years. It is therefore important that you give him or her a cute name that you are both going to enjoy hearing during this period.

The name that you give your hamster should have special meaning for your household. It should be short, as hamsters don’t usually respond to their names like cats and dogs. A cute name like ‘Smalls’ will be perfect for a miniature hamster.
