If you recently obtained a pet or intend to get one soon, it will require a name in addition to a home, food, and toys.

Tips for Naming Your Gerbil

Gerbils have a life expectancy of 3 to 4 years, which is somewhat longer than that of a hamster. They may not appear to live very long, but for a youngster who is obtaining a pet for the first time, this will be a formative memory. Consider a name that has personal significance or consider your pet's distinct characteristics. "Tucker" can be a suitable choice if your pet is a major napper. If your gerbil zips around its cage in a tizzy, names like "Chaos," "Speedy," or "Scamper" can be appropriate. Allow the pet to represent its owner or you. So, if this pet is mostly for a younger child with a favorite movie, go ahead and name it after one of the movie characters.
