Default Re: How do you come up with your hamstery name?

Vectis is the Roman name for the Isle of Wight, a place I spent many family holidays. Before my first trip as a young child, I imagined the Island as being somewhere near Antarctica and covered in snow, ice and penguins! Soon after starting to show hamsters I fell in love with black-eyed white Chinese hamsters and knew I wanted to work with them in future. With that aim in mind, I just had to name my hamstery after the Isle of 'White'

It has caused a little confusion with people thinking I live on the Island, but I'm not too far away and visit often so Islanders who have wanted hammies from me haven't found it too tricky.

Like Metallica, I was going to be Wessex Hams, but couldn't be
