I recently sent 5 of my rats to a rescue and they renamed all of them...which is slightly irritating because 3 of them were responding to their names frequently

"Sasha" was vicky
"Peaches" was storm
"Amber" was peaches
"Bailey" was cookie
"Bree" was lilith
I know I don't really have any say in how they deal with them now but.....is this normal?

Yes it is quite normal actually, i know they do it with dogs and cats in case they suffered any abuse/neglect while attached to that name. I think it's just something that happens to most animals that enter shelters now. The new adopters will most likely rename them again so i hope they find new homes fast to stop them getting too confused and i'm sorry you had to part with some of your rats. x
