Names for Chinese Dwarf Hamsters

Use these cute Chinese names for your hamster!

Chinese Dwarf Hamsters have unique looks and temper to offer. Here are some names to match such a special creature!


Chinese Dwarf Characteristics

Chinese Dwarves have a long tail compared to other pet hamsters (about 1 inch long). They are longer and slimmer, as well. They are usually gray or brown. They also have a more ratlike appearance, from head shape to tail length.

Chinese names are a lot of fun when translated. For example, I nicknamed my family dog "Fai Ju", literally meaning "Fat Pig". But not literally, it's a cute, affectionate (and funny) nickname meaning similar to "Chubs" or "Chubbie".

If you're not sure if a Chinese name actually makes sense, ask a friend or you can post below. Someone might have an idea!
