Houdini - Because he escaped his cage within the first few hours I had him home
Ryker - a friend actually named him... something to do with it meaning a speedy runner (or something, I forget)
Alfie - he came with it
Sinead - she's a naked with attitude!
Evaleen - I was looking at celtic/irish names and this one popped out at me
Isabeal - likewise ^
Phoebe - A friend named her, but it totally fits. We had been watching "Friends' on netflix, and the little rat was being spastic and kinda ditzy.
Pipsqueak - She's the smallest of my girls, and she had a URI, so was squeaking a lot.
Anita - Named after a character in my favorite series. She's fearless and has no qualms about jumping five feet from me to the cage, or back to me. Much like the character in the series.
Inuyasha - Named after an anime. He's a blue hooded dumbo, and about half an half color wise. Much like Inuyasha is a half demon
Sesshomaru - A blue berk, and Yasha's littermate. He's quiet, and I immediately compared him to the anime character. Mostly blue (you can see no white on his belly unless you turn him over), and when I first brought him home he was reserved (not so much anymore).
Shippo - Same anime. He's the spastic hyper goofy one. And he's an agouti rex and freaking adorable.

and I have other girls but I have yet to name them.. :(

Lupin - after Prof Remus Lupin of Harry Potter, partially because I like the name/character and partially because I feel there is too much animal in such a small body!
Albus - he is a calm, slower Himalayan (so mostly white such as Albus' beard/hair) despite being young. I feel it fits him well and he will be a great lap rat when he matures
Lily - cute name for a shy, reserved girl yet confident with the boys just like Lily Potter

Baby-I adopted her and her mother and no matter how many names I came up with none of them fit. So I called her The Baby and it stuck!

Duke-He came with it and it fit.

Hartley-He was named Stevie and I have an Uncle Stevie so that didn't work lol. So I noticed a heart shape on his but and came up with that.

Cheshire-It was the first name my sister said and I fell in love.

Renegade-He is a wild child. The urban dictionarys definition was Rebel/outlaw and it was perfect for him. He is a big troublemaker. =)

Well Louie is what I named mine.. bc I was thinking of the fat, hungry rat for ratatouille. Plus he was kinda bigger than the siblings so fat louie really stuck out. Later discovered Louie is actually a female... so now she is Louie or Lou Lou. She responds to Louie and it still suits her.

I adopted 4 females from a rescue and 1 neutered male. Then I adopted two more girls from someone else. Four of my girls are dark brown with white on the underside. Pretty hard to tell apart.

The first 4 were rescued and three of them were pregnant (when they got to the rescue). One of the brown girls I named Shy Mama because she seemed shy, the other brown girl has some white up on her side so her name is Checkers. The other two are named Misty who is a blue/grey Berkshire (like a misty day), and Mercy who is a tan hooded, not sure why I named her Mercy.

The neutered male is a pink eyed white (PEW). Since his eyes are red, I named him Rojo which is red in Spanish.

The younger two I adopted are also dark brown and white berkshires like the older two females. They are sisters. One is called Latte the other Chip. Chip has a piece out of her ear, hence her name. Her sister I named Chocolate so both of them together are Chocolate Chip. Latte comes from Choc - o - latte.

Nameless - Me and the hubby tried deciding on a name for him for a week, but all attempts at a "proper" name were stopped when our little furball started responding and coming when called to Nameless.

Nugget - He came with this name, but it fits him so perfectly! He is our fat little Nugget, and is also gold (gold nugget... haha) so it stayed.

My albino rat was 5 weeks old when I brought her home. I set up her cage with some Carefresh and a blue plastic igloo. She was terrified from a 10-hour car trip across the state, and from being separated from her brothers and sisters. So she barricaded herself in the igloo using the Carefresh. I called her Nanook of the North as a joke, since she wouldn't come out of her igloo. Plus she's all white like a polar bear :) Later I tried to think of a better name, but what's more original than Nanook?:D

Blueberry- we call her Blue mostly. When I picked her and her sis up I fed her Blueberries in the car ride home and she LOVED them. So I called her Blueberry. Also it's cute. Meelo- I'm a nerd and it's the name of a character from Legend of Korra and I like it and it's cute and fun to say. I had a list of character names I wanted to use from multiple shows I love and Meelo just fit her the best. Turns out Meelo; pronounced as it sounds/Mílo, is the Greek pronunciation of the word for Apple. So I have Blueberry and Apple. Now I feel like I have to continue the theme with my next two rats.

Sugar- because she is the most affectionate rat I have ever met.
Spice- because she is always hogging and stealing food from sugar and she is still a great rat, but is not as affectionate as sugar
