I got gerbils.

One black one, one albino.

Their names are Chaos and Nyx.

In Greek mythology, Chaos or Khaos is the primeval state of existence from which the first gods appeared.

According to Hesiod's Theogonia, Chaos was the nothingness out of which the first objects of existence appeared. These first beings, described as children of Chaos alone, were Gaia (the Earth), Tartarus (the Underworld), Eros (desire), Nyx (the darkness of the night), and Erebus (the darkness of the Underworld).

Ovid, in his Metamorphoses, described Chaos as "rather a crude and indigested mass, a lifeless lump, unfashioned and unframed, of jarring seeds and justly Chaos named".
