Naming your new pet gerbil is a significant step in bonding with it and so needs a lot of thoughtfulness. A gerbil is a friendly, loving mammal that belongs to the rodent family. Also known as the desert rat, a gerbil is about six to twelve inches (150 to 300 mm) long, including a long tail that makes up nearly half of its total length. It is an easy to look after, hygienic, and sociable pet that bonds well with its owner. The best way to gel well with this adorable pet is to give it a nice name that sounds good and has a meaning to it.
Gerbil names can be inspired by a multitude of sources like cartoons, television shows, and even baby name books. In most cases, people like taking names from anything to which they relate the most, like a character from their favorite book, a movie, and even a place like a restaurant or location. Though these are a few easy options that come to our minds while naming our pet, the best way is to wait for a day or so, observe its behavior, and play with it to see if it has some quirks or personality traits that you can name it after. This way, you will come up with some great names that will not only be unique but will also reflect your pet's personality. Like, Speedy for a fast gerbil or Jumpy for a gerbil that likes to jump.

To bond well with your new pet gerbil and to make it comfortable in its new home, you should name it within the initial few days of bringing it home. Unlike other pets like dogs and cats, gerbils do not instantly start responding upon hearing their names. Hence, just be patient and consistent, and once your pet starts responding to the name, don't forget to treat it to its favorite food.
