I need help naming my new babies.

They did come with names but I'm not overly keen on them. (Remy and GusGus)

They are both males, 4 months old.

The mink boy seems to be the shyer one but as they get more used to me he also seems to be the more cuddly of the 2.

The white boy is the more outgoing and happier to be off on his own exploring.

They're both very sweet.

I'm tempted to name the white boy Hannibal because of this faint sound he makes sometimes. Other than that I'm lost.

It can be longer than a normal call name, I wouldn't mind something ironic or pun-tastic.

Whoops... after giving filthy smelly white boy a bath he's not white... I think he's a champagne hooded. He got shy as soon as I pulled the camera out but I'll upload some now.

This is the hooded boy GusGus)
Best photo I have to show his colouring.
I pulled the camera out at the same time I opened up the lower level of their cage for the first time so naturally... he couldn't care less what I was doing.





And Mink boy (Remy - that name is growing on me... it does suit him)
He was much less interested in exploring the new space and more content to just hang out and stare at me.





Quinn is fascinated with them. I watch her carefully because she's likely to get too excited and poke or paw them without thinking but so far, she's been pretty nice.

I love the name Atticus but I don't think it suits these guys.

I think we've fallen on Lecter and Ronnie
I was going to suggest Lecter (because, you know, Hannibal Lecter), so yey! :D

They are both adorable.
