This could get long lol
Ben - Because it suited him, and we were watching Supernatural at the time and Dean's son is named Ben. I name all my rats after Supernatural characters.
Hughie - Because he looked like an old man, all sick and shriveled up when I took him home. I live in a mostly Irish/Scott area, so Hughie is a popular old man name.
Twitch - Was Jose, but I switch to Twitch because he would twitch from his ammonia poisoning at the store. He doesn't stop moving now.
Spidey - He was blue and red, my fiance named him after Spiderman.
Freddy - My friend Jenn named him when she bought him for me. It was Fred, but I liked Freddy more :)
Nixon - Named by his previous owner :)
Sheldon - I just went through 3 weeks of Big Bang Theory after ripping all the tendons in my foot and being bed ridden... so I named him after a character.
Monkey - Because he used to perch in the sponge bob house window, like a little monkey. He couldn't swim so this was how he watched us and got away from the bottom of the tank.
Gadget - My son named him this, after Inspector Gadget.
Jack - Jack Frost, winter name.
Kris - Kris Kringle, another winter name.
Gage - I wanted a strong name for our new PK who's still with his rescuer until the weather warms up. Gage was the other name I chose for my son.
Chaise - I took him home recently, and bought a new computer chair too. I wasn't supposed to go to the pet store! So we spent the whole night building the chair and taking care of our new Betta... so I named him Chaise which is the French word for chair. It's said like Chase :)
And all the girls have Japanese names that reflect their color :)
