Who knew that naming a little hamster could be such a big challenge? Boy hamster names come in various styles, from appearance-based picks to out-there monikers. We rounded up some amazing contenders to make the job a little easier on you.

Funny boy hamster names are often favorites among male hamster names, including Ham- inclusive names like Hamlet and Hamish. These capture your pet’s hamstery nature in a cute and quirky way. Other pet parents adore funny boy hamster names that are seemingly the opposite of a cuddly little pet, like Bear or Napoleon. These picks are hilariously gigantic shoes for a tiny hamster to fill. On the flip side, picking a run-of-the-mill human name is popular too, like Kevin, Eugene, or Brian. They’re the last thing anyone expects you to say when asking your pet’s name, making them funnier.

Unsurprisingly, cute boy hamster names are also popular, fitting how adorable your new pet is. Cute boy hamster names often have a youthful air, like Jack, Franky, and Charlie. Names of famous rodents also fall into this group, like Cinderella’s Jaq and Gus and Disney’s Mickey. This group also contains good boy hamster names that are appearance-based, like Blue, Red, and Gray. Some of these are tied to your pet’s appearance in meaning, like Paavo, Petit, and Piccolo, meaning “small.” Other cute boy hamster names include Huckleberry, Iggy, and Andy.

Unique boy hamster names offer a fun way to stand apart. Nicodemus is one of our all-time favorites. Hailing from Mrs. Frisby and the Rats of NIMH and a biblical pick, this name is grand yet rare. Rich in nicknames, he’s also super versatile. You could opt for Bowie for rocker vibes, or you can try out Cinco for word-name styling. See Esau, Duff, and Boris for more unique boy hamster names.

Check out the rest of our boy hamster names collection and see which fits your new hamster friend.
