I had gerbils as a child. We named one wolf because he bit the store employee and made him bleed when we got him. We named the other one Tiger since he had Wolf we decided that we needed a another BIG name.
I loved them to peices but with two cats and two roommates in a 3 bedroom townhouse, I think the cats will have to do for now. When I win the lottery you can guarentee there will be gerbils back in the house because it will be much bigger
