I was going to go with a To Kill a Mockingbird theme as my son is called harper, the rats were going to be Atticus & Radley, but I went with a Firefly theme we have Wash & Mal, hopefully getting a third soon to be called Jayne :)

My theme was villains :) . I have two rats Dagon and sinestro. Dagon is an elder god from lovecraftien lore, and sinestro is a villain from the green lantern/DC universe. Thinking of picking up another rat and naming him Dexter after the show.

I don't know if plants count as a theme? haha I named my oldest girls Holly and Ivy because I got them near Christmas time.

I named my newest girl Silver......because her coat is kinda silver.

How creative am I? :rolleyes:

My fiance is a huge Chicago Bears fan so in order to convince him that we NEEDED rats (which of course we did) I bribed him with players names - Tillman and Perry. It should be easy to continue - I think Hester will be next. I'm even ordering some Chicago Bears fleece to make a cage set. They also live in the Bears themed "man-cave".

If Kitty has babies we plan to use a baby animal theme. I am not allowed to post the names I have in mind because is bad luck. But if one looks like Kitty you can probably guess her name!

No theme for us, but all our kids have unusual names,not just the ratties... Our four girls are called Frost (after the British comedian actor Nick Frost) Oreo (as she is white is a brown/black hood), vanilla (as she is white with a minx hood) and finally, Aslan who is champagne (as she was a brave little bugger and when we first got her she jumped onto my hands for hugs even before we had brought them)...then our boy gerbils are Shadows,Rev and Syn (after the metal band avenged sevenfold) the girl gerbils are called midnight and oasis... And finally our little girl who is a winter White Russian dwarf hamster is called Absinthe (coz when we got her she was small with a deadly bite-she doesn't anymore tho) xxxxxxx

I don't have a theme for my boys, way too many personalities in my rats to stick with a theme. Typically it's what ever comes to mind and fits them.

Charles got his name because I like that name. Einstein got his name because he was smart. I have no idea why Storm got his name, but it did end up fitting him quite well. Soda got his name from Soda from The Outsiders, and he still fits his name in being hyper. Bentley got his name because Bentleys look good in black (and Bentley is a Solid Black rat). Liam and Niko got their names because we like those names as well.

"Old Lady Chic." It isn't really a theme, it's just what I like and what seemed right, and they all happen to be names from another generation. I really like the idea of a pioneer matriarch just taking care of business and not messing around. I had to wait a long time for some of the names to show up. I have Ruth (Ruthie) and Louise (Lulu) and the itty bitties, Frances (Frannie) and Eleanor (....Eleanor. She could have been Nellie but she just isnt). Frances was almost Gracie. But she's just Frances.

Condiments! Right now I have Tabasco and Sriracha. When I get males I'll name them Heinz and Frank (I'm originally from Pittsburgh; Heinz ketchup and Frank's red hot).

We decided to name this pair after the brothers (Sam and Dean) in the show Supernatural. We were trying to think of brother names and with their bright pink eyes I thought the Supernatural theme was only fitting.

My rats name are condiments ! Sugar & Pepper. I know it's normally sugar and spice or salt and pepper but we decided to mix it up a bit. Sadly pepper passed away at 2 but sugar is still alive at 2 years & 6 months. She is happy and healthy! We soon hoping to get male rats and call them Alvin, Theodore, and Simon after Alvin and the chipmunks! Lovely to see how many unique names there are out there;)

I don't feel quite so bad for naming my little hooded girl Eleanor. However, she doesn't really fit her classy name. Rambunctious little scamp, she is.
