I never knew rats would be kept as pets until I watched the movie Stuart little. Since then, I have seen so many people pet rats, and they seem to be excellent pets. I went to visit my friend someday and found him having two pet rats. The funny thing is he had not named them. So, we had to get some proper names for them. It got me thinking that there are probably other people stuck in the same situation. That is why I decided to compile a list of pet rat names to give you some inspiration when choosing a name for your pet.
I know naming pets can be a problem at times because you are supposed to get a name that will not be boring after some time. The name should be fun, brilliant, and original. Names are an excellent way to help you bond with your pet. It easier for the pet rat when you get a simple name.

Naming Your Pet Rat
I think the reason I never thought rats would be kept as pets is that I only knew wild rats. The wild rats have a bad reputation which is why they have no place in people’s hearts. On the other hand, pet rats are a different case. They are clean, smart, intelligent, and affectionate.
They are small, which means they don’t need a huge place to survive. It is a plus to most pet rat owners. These are characters worth a great name.
To name your pet rat, you need to check on the rats’ characteristics. Now that I have seen many pet rats, I can tell you that each has its qualities. They are all different and brilliant. They can quickly learn their names but to make it even easier for them, you can try short names and names with one or two syllables. Also, try to learn your rat’s quirks and temperaments. Be creative and do not leave your interests aside.
