Dio, but it can only be referred to as "Ronnie James Dio", otherwise all bets are off.

Another vote for Tony "The Cat" Martin, but you have to go for Dio, or maybe Padanova for the cognoscenti.

Dió means "nut" or "walnut" in Hungarian, which is kind of cute for a rodent, I think.

Thanks for your input, guys. That is, indeed, a pretty crazy amount of responses. I will share pictures as soon as he is in my care on Saturday.

Also – hamsters are awesome. My last hamster, Lemmy, was a total bro. That's why I'm getting this one from a breeder. Hamsters don't really have any trouble breeding, obviously, but the breeders breed them for cuteness and personality. And, of course, metal cred.

He is currently in the "terrified of everything" phase, so I haven't really been able to grab a good photo yet.

Dio of course means "god" in Italian, though Ronnie said he got the name from a Florida mafia guy named Johnny Dio. There happens to be a brief appearance of a Johnny Dio in Scarface. Just don't name it after Born Again vocalist Ian...

it is indeed Ozzy. He's still a little hyper, but he's settling in nicely. He enjoys climbing on the walls and ceiling of his cage.
