some inspirations to name your hamster

• If you are stuck between a few available names, take a paper plate, write some names on it, space them out well. Place different foods next to each name. Whichever your hamster goes for first will be its name!
• Place your hamster in a hamster ball (if you have one), and place a few sticky notes with some names on them on the outside of the ball. Whichever one falls off the ball first will be its name.
• If your hamster is curious and likes wandering into other rooms, you can assign a name to each room, let your hamster loose for like ten minutes. Whichever room your hamster is in when ten minutes limit is up will be its name.
