Hello everyone! ^_^ My name is Mana, and I am a soon-to-be rat owner, longtime rat lover. I've been lurking around this forum for a week or so, after doing some research once I decided that I wanted to finally get a rat (although it didn't take long for me to change that to rats). When I was younger, my mom would never let me get a rat because she didn't like their adorable hairless tails. Then one of my friends got a rat, and I melted and fell in love with her and had to have my own! You'll probably see me around asking some questions until I get my girls, and then I'll gush and post lots of pictures ^_^

Oh, and I was wondering if any of you had names picked out for your rats before you got them? I have some in mind, but I'll probably have to get to know my rats before I decide for sure ^_^

Hi, Mana! Welcome to the forums!
I think it's easier to decide upon a name for your rattlings once you get to know their personalities.

Most of the time I've had a name picked out before I got the rat. And most of the time the name never fit the rat.

I think I'd recommend getting the rat and seeing how you feel you should name them. THen you can always have some in standby just in case.

Hi Mana, welcome to the forums :)

I chose the names for our rats after we bought them, hoping that something would come to me once I knew their personalities a bit. It didn't work! :lol:

I named my rats long before I had them. (I still don't have them for another 3 weeks or so! :D)
I named them after my future roommate's internet names. Kinda stupid, but oh well.

I spent much time agonizing over Bert and Bastians name but Odin came right to me. It fit cause he only has one eye >_> And that was better than Cyclops lol. I don't even nickname him that.

But he is also called Winks. My animals tend to have several names.
