125 Unique Names for Pet Ferrets

There are more and more people who decide to adopt a ferret as a pet, and it's no surprise, as this animal is friendly and playful. It is believed that humans started to domesticate ferrets at least 2500 years ago with the purpose of catching rats and rabbits. Keeping a ferret as a pet requires specific care. You must be familiar with the best diet for a pet ferret and how to reduce its odor, among other aspects of care. As any other pet, this intelligent mammal needs to receive a name. Although many people are not aware, ferrets can be trained, making a name even more important.

How to choose the ideal name for your ferret

It's important to choose your pet ferret's name correctly in order to be able to catch its attention. It will help make sure they understand you in a clear and simple manner. To do so, we recommend looking for a short name, best as a monosyllabic word.

If the name is too long it will be difficult for the ferret to register. This means it will take longer for the ferret to internalize the name, if they ever can. When using the name, it's preferable to use high-pitched sounds that will easily catch its attention. This is due to the ferret's better ability to register higher pitches.

You'll be able to quickly identify when your ferret is angry, as they will emit hissing sounds that are similar to those of a cat. On the other hand, ferrets make a "dokdokdok" sound when they're happy. Communicating with a pet ferret isn't difficult at all. It will also helps us to look after the animal if they have any health issues or need to be better educated.

I guess I've been naming my babies wrong the whole time. I've always picked silly names for ferrets according to their personalities, and usually hyphenated. Here's my current woozle family.

Woozle-May (female)
Koda-Bear (male)
Dopey-Herschel. (male)
Cinnamon-Stoat. (male)
Hershey-Squirt (female)
Alice-Ermine (female albino)
Husky (male)
Nugget (male)

NOTE: we're not intentional "hoarders." We (unintentionally) found ourselves in the unique position of breaking the incessant cycle of
unwanted ferrets being passed from home to home in our area. Some of our babies had 2 or 3 different homes in their short lives. Some neglected. One (Alice-Ermine) was dumped off with insulinoma, requiring lots of care and only a year left. I'd rather not have so many, but I know they're safe, spoiled and happy in their "forever home."

Hi Dook,

You're not 'wrong'! Short names are best, but ferrets are not always the best at responding to commands (although it is possible to do very basic 'tricks'). This means your names are completely valid, as well as fun, inventive and idiosyncratic. Thanks for sharing.
