  1. sorry
    but i said that just the best name for hamster.
    now all of the names in here are good and i don’t know to choose what ???

  2. Excellent list of hamster names! I think it’s important to pick a good name to help owners bond, we name the things we love. These lists are a great place to start!

    1. Yeah I just think they shoukd have cinnamon on there then it wouldve been perfect! But amazing list!!

  3. I have 2 Syrian hamsters one her name is Lani the other is Tsunami she is a butterball we call her Nami for short but she responds to both. I also have 3 Robo dwarf hamsters Sonic, Bella and W.G short for Wonder Girl.

  4. We have a Tommy hamster and we named her Trixie… thanks for the help my 5 yr old son couldn’t decide what to name her

  5. I love this website you can take one name and create your own name from a name on this! Like I saw honey so I thought honey lemon!

  6. Ok so my hamster is brown and white and the names I like that I picked is precious, peanut, and kiwi. I DONT KNOW WHAT TO CHOOSE CAN SOMEONE CHOOSE FOR MEEE

  7. My hamster is brown and white and I chose these names Precious, Peanut, And Kiwi. CAN SOMEONE CHOOSE FOR ME I CANT CHOOSE

  8. I’ve had 4 hamsters and my brother has had 2.
    Male:
    Bourbon (after the biscuit) who my dad nicknamed Whiskey
    Maltesers
    James (my brother’s who I called James Bond 007 Licensed To Squeak)
    Female:
    Fudge
    Toffee
    Annie
    Strictly speaking, apart from Annie and James, they are unisex but the gender is of the hamster who the name was bestowed upon.

    1. Both great names Holly, we’ve got Whiskers on our list but I don’t think we have Jellybean, we’ll get that added, thanks!

  9. Hammy,sweetie,baby,titan all my hamsters all named on personality. As long as you love your pet name it what you like

  10. We just got 2 new hamsters. A boy winter white dwarf that we named Kirby, and a brown and white girl Syrian short hair that we named Cookie. Separate cages of course lol.

  11. I’m getting a winter white hamster and if it’s a girl I might name her Pebble if it’s a boy i’ll name it Kashmir because that’s an awesome name and it’s my favorite song.

  12. What should I name my female winter white hamster I got her a colorful cage and she is of corse mostly very light grey with a little bit of not so light grey and she Is very sweet and I kind of want her name to go along with her cage

  13. I just got a girl syrian hamster who is still pretty young (not a baby, but closer to that age). She’s adorable, sweet, shy, curious, etc. And I’ve thought of a few names, but even though I’m a creative writer I can’t seem to pick one that I really like (maybe I’m overthinking ). I want a sweet and cute name that matches her personality, that ends in the ee sound, and that is not a common human name. The names I like so far are:
    Everleigh or Evleigh
    Tiny
    Baby
    Eppie
    Lovie
    Sweetpea
    Shylie

    Any other suggestions? What do you think?
    Surprisingly I didn’t find any that I like for her from the list (unless they’re stated above), though they’re all great names!
