Winter White Dwarf Hamster – My New Baby

On December 11th, 2008 I found my new little baby at PetSmart in Orem, UT. He is such a cutie and so incredibly soft! His fur will change color with the seasons. Well, I got him home and him settled into his new home and emailed my family asking for suggestions of names. I found them to be creative and some hilarious and I want to post them on here for all to read.

Hamster name suggestions:
chipmunk
food
rosie bosie
byu cougars
happy face
junior high school
Griffin
Squirrel
heart bowl
computer head
tape
bc
Able
To You
head bowl
foo-foo
fluffy
ralph
dale
fuzz
fuzzy
hambone
Sleepy
Dopey
Doc
Sneezy
Snowball
Hammy

The age range of the name suggestions was from about 64 years old to about 4 years old and everything in between. 🙂 Some of my favorites were “rosie bosie,” “heart bowl” and “Snowball.”

In the end, I chose a name for my beautiful hamster that kept coming to mind over and over. His name is officially Olly. I have always liked the movie A Lot Like Love, where Ashton Kutcher’s character’s name is Oliver and they shorten it to Ollie sometimes throughout the movie. I don’t know why that name stuck, but it sure did. So Olly it is. 🙂

And here is my baby:
