Some consider them to be rodents, some raise or hunt them for their fur in order to make various clothes and accessories, while there are some who also keep them as pets. These are the chinchillas, who are more robust and slightly larger than ground squirrels, and are found mainly in the Andes mountain in South America. The number of these rodents has gone down drastically as they were hunted for their fur, which was used to make clothes since the 16th century. The fur of the chinchilla was famous for its soft feel and color. Hence, it was mainly used to make the lining of larger-sized garments, although sometimes a large garment was also made from around 150 pelts.
Be it a boy or a girl, everyone loves to have a chinchilla as a pet, and although taking care of a chinchilla is a tough job, kids are ready to face that just to keep their pets safe and healthy. However, when it comes to names, they face a problem because if it's a male chinchilla, then he should have a name that sounds more masculine and if it's a female, then her name should sound cute and adorable. Given below are some chinchilla names for both boys and girls.
These names are just there to help you if you cannot come up with any. If you can think of something else, then you should go with that. Sometimes, the chinchilla's color and personality will help you come up with some new names too. Choose any name from this list or mix some up to create a new one. Just make sure that it suits your pet.
