Read About Ferret Names

Ferret Names must be chosen with care. These names should be authentic and appropriate to the pet and at the same time easy to pronounce and remember. Here's everything you need to know about them.

Ferret Names -- How to Choose

  1. Type of Pet:

    While naming your pet ferret, you should keep in mind its temperament and other qualifying traits. For example, if your ferret is lazy, you cannot name it 'Bouncy' or 'Peppy'. It would be better to call it 'Lazybones' or 'Slug' in that case. The name which you select should suit some or the other characteristic of the ferret.
  2. Suitability:

    Obviously, the name must be suitable to the animal, or it won't be remembered by the people who hear it. You can pick out suitability aspects from several factors. The name that you select must be simple to pronounce. You can select a unique name in a different language, but make sure that you know what it means -- don't go just by the sound of the word. Also see that the name is short and easy to remember. Long names will finally be shortened to nicknames; so it is better not to go for long names.
  3. Personality:

    Your ferret's personality can be a good indicator of the name it gets. You need not see the personality as a whole; even a single qualifying trait from the personality could inspire you to get a good name. Refer to a good list of pet ferret names to get a host of names based on personality. You can select one among them depending on what the personality of your ferret is.
  4. Physical Traits:

    Ferrets are beautiful creatures, and there is no taking away from that. So why not name a ferret according to some of its beautiful physical features? You will need to look at your ferret with appraisal, and the first thing about it that strikes you as beautiful can become the ferret's name. It could be 'Fuzzball', 'Blue Eyes', 'Pearls', or anything that relates to your ferret.
  5. Heritage:

    You can delve into your own heritage to pick out a good ferret name. If you are French, then you can give the ferret a name that is from your own heritage -- it could be 'Belle', 'Roi', or something like that which comes close to your ferret. You can also borrow from other cultures. 'Bindi' is a unique female ferret name. It is borrowed from the Hindu culture, where it means an adornment of the women's forehead.
  6. Popularity:

    Your ferret name will become popular only if you make it known. Call your ferret by the name often, especially when friends and relatives are around. Slowly the name will catch on. Even a unique and unusual name will become popular. Who knows, you may start a new fad in ferret names!
  7. Inspiration:

    If you are searching for inspiration in naming your ferret, then the movies or popular story books will be good choices. You can even name your ferret after popular celebrities or superheroes if you have the inclination.
  8. Making the Choice:

    Finally, making the choice from a selected list of chosen names is the most daunting task. You need to show the list to several people before making the final choice. Try calling the name out to the ferret and see if it responds to the name.
