Pet Rats - Name ideas for your baby pet rats!

What to Name Your Pet Rats?

One of the problems I had when I first got my rats was what to name them! I got two adorable baby male rats, or bucks. Just in case you don't know (I didn't know), male rats are called bucks, and female rats are called does (doe with a S).

The problem wasn't a lack of names, but an overwhelming abundance of them! I finally settled to name them based on their characteristics. One of my rat's called Coffee because the colour of his coat reminds me of the colour of coffee, and the other rat's called Jump, because of the way he's so jumpy!

Anyway, here's a list of suggestions for both male and female rat names. It'll probably be quite helpful, and I'll try to update this list often!
