Yesterday, I filled the void that was left after I had my tortoiseshell and white banded short haired female put to sleep.
Here he is:
I was thinking Oso (bear in spanish) or Osito (little bear) but my mother (I'm only 16) thinks it sounds like 'arsehole' with out accent blush One of my friends suggested that I pronounced it Ozzo but I'm not so sure...
I was also thinking maybe Pablo/Tyrone (I like unusual names)
I've already got a Benji, Daisy, Boris, Harry and Wesley in my current collection of pets and I've had many others in the past too.

Do you like any particular TV shows? Films? We have Ghibli and Farscape rats in this house! grin

Is Spanish particularly special or would "bear" in another language work?
According to google (which probably isn't accurate!), it can translate to:
Japanese - Kuma
German - Tragen
Arabic - Dubb
Chinese - Xióng

He's very cute!

I dont really watch much TV. Especially since I'm in the middle of my exams. I was thinking spanish because I speak quite a bit of spanish.

Wilfred is a lovely name smile DD has just got her first hamster, she's a rescue so already named Harriet and it seems to suit her smile

I used to have a lovely hamster called Fidget x
