Boy Hamster Names
Boy hamster names usually are simple because boys don’t really have the need for elegant or cute names. That’s not to say that boys can’t have a hamster with a cool or unique name, but it may take a little more imagination to generate something different.
Personality and Attitude
Since boy and girl hamsters look almost alike, you may need to name it something more masculine, so coming up with boy names can be as simple as observing the hamster for a few days to pick out habits or personality traits. Sneezy for a hamster that sneezes a lot or Rolls for a hamster that likes to roll over are two examples of a simple name a boy may pick. Other names could be Puffy (for a thick body of hair, Fatty (for an overweight, but cute hamster), Quicks (for a hamster than sprints), or Clumsers (for a clumsy hamster).
Think of a recent movie you saw or something your son or daughter has an interest in. You might name the hamster Harry after Harry Potter or Ron after Potter’s friend. Transformers has been popular for decades, so Optimus, Prime, Bumblee, and Ironhide are all suitable boy hamster names. Musically, any of the Jonas Brothers make good names. Pet owners usually want to name their hamster something that reminds them of their favorite thing or that they have fond memories of.
