Sometimes it's not so easy to name a rat. You want a name that sounds good, and maybe has meaning. Or perhaps you are looking for a group of names that go well together, like from a book, TV show or a particular culture (past themes for me included Red Dwarf, Redwal, and Hogan's Heroes).

The first two links below contain lists of names that I like, I have used (marked with a *), or someone I know has used (whether submitted or gleaned from forums, The Rat Report or the Rat & Mouse Gazette).

Keep in mind that the "gender" assigned to each name in the list is just a suggestion. "Male" names can work for females, and vice versa. Be creative!

Other Name Sites
These links will take you to some other name sites that are out there. I tried to collect interesting sites; ones that go above and beyond the "baby name" sites, and offer more intriguing and different names, including cultural and ethnic names. "Normal" baby name sites follow the more interesting list.
