Hi Everyone

My husband and I got a new hamster on Saturday and can't find a good name! This is our second hamster as we live on the second floor so it isn't fair to get cats yet. We were in the middle of moving to a house, so we left it 8 months from our last hamster planning cats in the new house. Last week it all fell through so we decided we missed having something around the house and we already had most of the things we needed.

We can't find a good name for him! He's very different to our last hamster in personality and habits.

Our old hamster was called Ninja which was a perfect name for him (plus a really cool name) as he was a dark hamster and nearly out of the box in the car when we first brought him home (all of a 5 minute drive) barging and tearing the edges, and he used to ram his ball into things and work his way out of the ball so often we had to tape him in!

So I want another pretty cool name for this one.

He is enormous, fluffy and cream with dark eyes and grey ears. The best cool name that we have come across is Thor due to being huge and light coloured fur but it's not the easiest thing to call him to get him to come to you - it doesn't exactly roll off the tongue. He is crazy meticulous about cleaning himself and loves digging like a mole - he disappeared under the sawdust in the bottom half of his cage the other day and re-appeared like a little mole - he is pretty well camouflaged into the sawdust. He also doesn't seem to realise how big he is and squishes himself into tiny spaces. 2 nights in a row now for no clear reason he has filled in the top tube with sawdust blocking himself from going to a lower level and using the wheel of having some water!?!

We have been thinking of film characters and book characters and have not come up with anything.

I know this sounds weird but... Teddy? I just feel like he's a Teddy!

Maybe Richard would be a different name :P or Ronald. Or Roger! Just thoughts! I know these are oddballs! haha

A good name if I'm right in the fact your hamster is a Winter white, rather than a Dwarf Russian white

I'm struggling with the fact that you are in your late twenties and have a pet hamster. Sorry, just seems odd to me, but each to his/her own I suppose.

I think he looks like a Gunther. No special reason, just the first name that popped in my head when I saw the pics.

Struggle all you like, I just asked for a name laugh

I said we can't have cats yet as they can't get outside until we move to a house and I'm allergic to dogs (plus we're not at home enough). And I like them. Look at his cutie face......

<<<<<<<<<<<My daughter called her's Major Fluffy, Destroyer of Toilet Rolls! He get's called Fluff Puff, Hammy Ham Ham, Little Fluffy. No wonder he's totally insane! Constantly trying to escape and has no sense at all!

Last night he was climbing upside down on the bars at the top of the cage until he was over his wheel, he then let go so he was lying on his back ON TOP of his wheel. Then the wheel start turning and he either falls off head first or tail first! Then he goes and does it again!! Totally nuts!

The other thing he does is climb up the side of the cage til he's next to his wheel then stretches across to his wheel so he's hanging by his front paws from the top of the wheel Eventually it will start turning and he'll fall off!

We think he's some sort of secret hamster agent!

Edit to add.....I think your hamster looks like a Sheldon!

I bought my first hamster with my partner when I was 20, we wanted a dog but our living situation made a hamster much more realistic. We called our first hamster Stewie.

We moved into a new house and got a puppy who we called Dexter but Stewie was no less loved (although less money was spent on him)

Stewie died a number of months ago and we got a new hamster and called him Sheldon. It's nice to have fur-friends, regardless of whether people think us in their 20's having such pets is stupid!

I call my pets after favourite TV shows - as you can see :-)

I like this suggestion. I think ridiculously long and grandiose names are cute for very small animals lol

or alternatively Hammy
