Their personality may inspire a few name ideas in your brain. Any active degu is called zippy or flash.

The one with an attitude can be called sassy. A shy degu can be named a shadow or daisy.

Favorite characters

Once everyone has written down their ideas, narrow them down by selecting a name or two. If the whole family is picking its own name.

Then hold a vote, and pick up the most familiar one. Otherwise, just pick up the one you like the most.
