How'd your bunny get his/her name?

Bailey:  No fancy reason - Just because I thought it was cute, and I was saying a few names over a few days and she just seemed to respond to Bailey.  Don't know if she REALLY did, but it just seemed to fit.

Jack: That was his original name he had when I saw him at Animal Care and Control.  I guess that was his original name too.    He was just this big bulky boy, and he reminded me of  a Lumber Jack, so it fit, plus he responded to it.

Rucy:  Rucy's name was Ruthie when I adopted her from the House Rabbit Society.  But it didn't really fit, and she didn't seem attached to it.  She was sort of a goofball, so I decided to name her Lucy.  But I kept getting tongue-tied between her old name and her new one, hence - the name Rucy was born.    She responds to it when she wants to.   She 's very independent.

Not too original I'm afraid... we asked the lady in the pet store what his colour type was called and she said "Sable"
Hey, we thought, that's a neat name for him. We try to use his name but we usually just call him "Bunny".

I love Rucy's naming story, sounds like the name suits her too!

First off I would like to introduce myself, my name is Robin and i am a proud owner of a 3 month old mini-lop named Kupo.
Her name was a result of my finance's love of Final Fantasy games and in the game there are these moogle things and their catch phrase is "kupo" Our bunny is so cute and I always thought the moogles or mogs were cute so we named her Kupo.

Tallullu - Ah!! Boo sounds very cute!   That is wonderful that you rescued him!  How did that all come about?  I mean what made you decide on a rabbit and then to adopt one from a shelter?  

My rabbits are also from shelters/rescue groups. (I have three)  Two of them do have health problems too, so I understand.  How wonderful it is of you to give Boo a loving home.

Welcome Kupo!  Now you're entered into the drawing for the bunny goodies!  

What a great name. My husband and I also love to play video games.   We haven't played the Final Fantasy series though, I'll have to check it out.

Kupo sounds very cute.   She's right at that 3 month mark though.  Has she gone through her hormonal changes yet?  If not, don't be surprised if she starts acting a little goofy soon - maybe even a little aggressive in certain areas.

Again, WELCOME!!

THANK you he is a little gem. I have always wanted a pet since i was a little girl but my mother has bad asthma so that just wasn't possible so i promised myself when ever i move out i would get a pet of my own i didn't care what. I have been a member of the sspca ( scottish society for the protection of animals) since i was 15 and they stress the importance of rescuing unwanted animals instead of buying one from a pet shop or breeder. So the day after my graduation me and my boyfriend went to the local shelter and looked at all the animals. Boo had been there a long time and he was scruffy looking and because he had health problems he was always overlooked so i decided to take him. There is also a 11 year old spaniel  who i loved too, so as soon as i get a bigger place im going to go back for him.

welll.... Hareiette was in and out of the rescue for close to a year and knew her name. I really am not sure it's a name I would ever pick for a bunny - but since she has such strong opinions and attitude it suits her.

Pandora's name was also a shelter name - and it really suits her.

Viktor was only at the shelter briefly but they named him Soot. We didn't like it at all and neither did he. So through one of our other volunteers who can talk to bunnies - we went through a series of names with him and he liked Viktor the best. Then I asked him if Krum could be his middle name. He liked it because it made people smile at Viktor Krum :-)

Ok, this is a good story: So when I got a bunny I wanted to name him Fufu; not because of little bunny fufu, but I call everything that I can't think of a name for a "fufu." Ya, I know I'm weird. So my boyfriend and I were discussing a name, and then I thought of Joe! Joe Cavalier is a teacher at our school that we are in love with; a truely amazing man. So we decided to name the bunny Fujoe- after fufu's and Joe! Fujoe's original name was Pedro, we adopted him from a woman on craigslist. But he's totally not a Pedro...he's a Fujoe. It was great cause at the first trip to the vet the nurses were calling him Fujoe Fabio (my last name) and were laughing so hard. I'm happy with his name

I love that story!   

And now I am so happy I have a word for all of the things I can't remember the name of.  That always happens to me - drives me crazy, but I haven't been that creative.  It's always been...."that thing, the thing thing, thingie, thingamajig!"   But I really like "Fufu" much better.    It will at least make me laugh and fend off frustration when I can't remember.

my bunny got her name because she is the color of orange juice so that is what we named her.

hummmmmmmm.. Lets see. Well Midnight got her name because she's all black, Kensey is named after my favorite nascar driver, Matt Kenseth, but i had to make it girly,  Lexus, my husband named, he likes cars and Dusty was already named when we got him but he's sort of a gray and white mix so it fits.

My bunnies names came from bizzare movies and cd's my husband owns. I have 4 rabbits 2 of which were adopted from a shelter.

Nino - Was the male character out of a french movie called Amelie. It seemed to fit to him perfectly.
Jasper - Came from Jasper out of the Simpsons. That old man character that lives at the retirement village with Grandpa Simpson. Jasper was adopted and he just reminded me of an old man.
Ziggy - Came from David Bowies song Ziggy Stardust. She's a crazy little bun who "zigs" everywhere, PERFECT!
Pepper - Well Pepper is my other adopted bun. She's all black, pretty obvious name really!

OMG so I'm not the only person who turns to the Simpsons to get creative names.

I've had hamsters named Bitey (the monorail episode), Rudiger ("I didn't do it" boy episode).

My first bunny was Bobo (after Mr. Burn's teddy bear - plus she was brown).
My second bunny was Jubjub (after Aunt Selma's iguana.)

My current bunnies are Hugo (The halloween episode where Bart has a twin "It's loose!  Hugo's loose!"  We love saying that to him when he jumps out of his cage, haha)

One of my girls is Mabel (Very obscure, one episode starts with Bart and Lisa sitting at the kitchen table, reciting the first line from The Great Gatsby word for word: "So I sez to Mabel, I sez..."

My other girl is Bungelina Jolie, our only non-Simpsons name, because my boyfriend came up with it on the way home of picking her up from the foster home, and I was laughing so hard. 
Also we've pretty much tapped the Simpsons dry at this point for names - and no I was not going to call her "Snowball II".
I think you can guess who's namesake she is after.  (She just had Brad Pitt's baby). 
Now we just call her Bungee, or  Bunga-Bunga-Bunga, after Marsha-marsha-marsha!!!

Am I really  as crazy as I think I am?  Feel free to let me know!!

Hello, love this site!
My bunnies names.
Pepper cause she is mostly black with some speckles of brown and grey, not my idea the name, she was/is my sisters bunny I got her when my sister moved in with another sister who has a rambunctious terrier. My sister asked for the bunny for her birthday before she was planning on moving and I got it for her, was my plan that I would end up with it all along though. MUHAHAHAHA.
My bunny is Boofa. I do not know where that came from I had her almost a week and just called her bunny till one day Boofa just stuck in my head. I got much protests from several friends and family members about that though. So I told them they could call her BB short for Boofa Bunny. So mostly she gets called BB but her name is Boofa dang it!!! LOL

My new foster got his name Spike because when we first got him he was blowing out his coat and his hair was spikey...
Tippy my bun got his name because of the way he always tips over to one side when he stands on his back feet...
