List Rules Vote up the funniest, most clever names to give pet rats.

So, you’ve got a new pet rat. Do you need a cool rat name for him? This list of rat names may prove useful. From funny rat names to clever or cool rat names, they’re all here - and you get to decide the coolest of them all with your votes.

Many cute rat names reflect these rodents' personalities. They squeak a lot, so “Squeakers” would be perfect. So would “Scamper” or “Pipsqueak” (you could call him “Pip” for short). And any creative rat names could include cheese (a rat’s favorite food); “Cheddar” would be ideal.

Looking for more clever rat names or rat name puns? Hollywood can provide inspiration. Some of the most famous cartoon characters in TV or movies were rats. Remember “Templeton” from Charlotte’s Web? And who didn’t fall in love with “Remy” the rat-turned-chef in Pixar’s Ratatouille? And for the Harry Potter fans, why not name your pet rat “Scabbers”? If you’re into literary rats, “Ratticus Finch” makes a first-rate punny rat name.

From “Rat Lauer” to “Rats Domino,” this rat name list offers up some prime name choices for your furry friend. Vote for your favorites!
