Talking

I need cute Degu names!!


I have 3 little degus that need names and I'm clueless! I have 2 little boys and one little girl. The boys will be with their dad Nibbles (the one bites like his daddy too), and the girl will be with the mom Squirt. They all act pretty much the same and they're hard to tell apart still (except the one that bites). I'm looking for some suggestions so I have a few ideas! I'll try to get pics of them if I can get them to stay still! Thanks in advance!

Ok, here are some pics of the boys. I didn't take a pic of the girl because I don't know which one we'll keep yet
Also, all of their noses have the little orange/black spot on them like the first pic of the second brother (it's not just him ).
Thanks again (in advance) for your help with the names!

Purplebunny - Thanks for the tip! I'll keep that in mind when considering names!

Luciana Mottola - Thanks

Sammy H - Beebee is a cute name. Beebs would go well because sometimes I call the dad (Nibbles) Nibs for short. Thanks for the idea!


I'm still looking for a few names so anyone else that can help it would be appreciated! Thanks again!

What about "brown" names like Sienna, Cinnamon, Fudge, Amber, Cocoa, Rusty, etc.

Thumbs up

JennLin22 - The brown theme is a good idea. I love the first 3 names you said (Sienna, cinnamon, and fudge). Fudge is really cute! Thanks for the ideas!

Sammy H - My friend is coming this weekend to pick out 2 of the girls so I'm not sure which girl I'll get to keep yet. The boys act a lot alike, there are only a few differences that I've noticed so far.

The one boy is a little more shy, smaller, and he bites (like his daddy Nibbles) I was thinking Nippers would be a cute name?
The other boy is a little bit bigger and he explores more.

Most of the time when I have the boys out I put them in the cage with the dad (the cage they can still escape from!) so mostly they're climbing out and I'm putting them back in constantly (Maybe I could name one of them Ninja - quiet, sneaky, and always up to something naughty!). When they aren't with they're dad, they're with their 3 sisters and mom in a room and its hard to tell them apart from the girls while they're running around and playing.

So far my options for boy names are: Nippers and Ninja (I was looking around for Ni- names to be like they're dad Nibbles), and Beebs (I call the dad Nibs for short sometimes)
So far my options for girl names are: Sqeak (Squeeks) and Squeakers (Squ- names like her mom Squirt), Sienna, Cinnamon, and Fudge. (I'll probably pick a name for her when I know which one I get to keep!)

What do you guys think of these names? Any other suggestions?

I picked two names before I got the Degu breeders's home, because I knew they were 2 boys: Bobby & Niblet : )

What about comic book names?

One piece of advice would be to have 2 names that sound different, then you might be able to train them to come to their names Nipper and Ninja are cool, but sound fairly similar.

I can't see the pics for some odd reason, but I still have some name sugesstions. How about Boo, Joy Belle, Bobbio, (That's my hamsters name ^^) Gerkin, Ryce, Sadie, Starry, Kacky, Muffin, (That was my old rabbits name)India-Rose, (That is my sisters horse's foals name, I got to name it!) Fluffy, or Bear? Those are cute names. I could go on forever with names like these. I am havng trouble with naming my baby female ones that are coming in July because I have so many choices!

i named mine Mo, after Mo Farah, and Tony because he is blind and lazy, like my late grandfather. you could think of what you love and name them or buy them and then name them on how they act or how they look. i was going to name one Titan, or Samuel, after samuel.L.jackson or Llionel after Llionel richie as we love the song "hello".
