    Default Your bunny names

    So what was the story behind your bunny names? Some members have some really different names and always wondered.

    Toby and Maple I just liked those names and are pretty basic. Joe said no Toby at first as it reminds him of a name of a horrid chubby posh kid at a private school. I said that's perfect then. Toby would definitely still your lunch money. He's such a brut at meal times.

    And Dennis my mum named he was bonded to Barry and she likes human names. She also had a rat called Dave at the time

    'Hillian' - aka Henry and Lillian came with their names and I'm not a fan of changing rabbits names. If that's part of their past, regardless of what they were called pre-rescue centre, then so be it. I feel that remains part of their identity. My bridge buns Max, Sam, Ben and Genrogina...well, Georgina was called George by her former owners after Rainbow charachters (that's Rainbow the itv childrens lunctime programe). But when we got Georgina, I quickly discovered George was female so we named her Georgina. That really suited her. At that time we already had a single black rabbit that we found roaming round the streets where we lived. He was jet black and we couldn't find a suitable name for him. Then, walking back from town one afternoon, we talked about Coca Cola which I then shifted to Pepsi but Pepsi seemed a bit inapropriate so I then linked it to Pepsi Max and then shortened it to Max. We lost Max and got Sam from a rescue centre. We chose his name going with the 3 letter theme from Max. He was Georgina's hus-bun for about a year/18 months and then he died suddenly and we went to the rescure centre again to find our dear bridge bun Ben - sticking with the 3 letter name. Ben was adorable and formed such a wonderful loving deep bond with Georgina. We lost them close together last September/October and now have Hillian.

    The first rabbit I had as an adult was Sooty, he was an otter Rex I think.he was a rabbit I bought at the first and last rabbit show I ever went to. The kids called him that and the name stuck!

    The second rabbit was Miffy, a white lion head rabbit. In fact the third one was also a white lion head and she was called Miffy too, again this were the kids choice, after the books!

    Fluffy Ginger and Apricot Sundae (ginger and apricot for short ) were named by my daughter, they were gingery lion head sisters.

    Dandy and Beano were already named by the rescue, they were half Wildie brothers and they really were comic characters so the names stayed.

    Boots was already named by the rescue and the name just suited him

    Frosty was called Bruce Lee by the rescue on account of a big rescue involving police, rspca, mental health services, his owner had him on his shoulder whilst brandishing a samurai sword Bruce Lee was a mouthful and so we called him Frosty on account of his frosty point colour. Aka Mr Frosty or Frosticles. Hubby often calls him bun bun

    Binky free at the bridge Boots, you will never be forgotten xxxx

    Joey cos he persicoped loads & reminded us of a baby kanga, Boo cos she looked like a ghost & spooks a lot, Mouse cos she has a pretty face & big ears & is timid

    Love the explanation about how you got to keep Tobys name

    my other bunnies were all mine & I didn't have to consult about their names like I have to now. I just chose them cos I liked them - apart from Angel (I don't really like that name which was taken from my fave DJ Dave Angel). There was also Ralph, Kitty, Noodle & Myrtle

    Current rabbits

    Bonny, Bing and Bluebell - chosen by my children.
    Theo - came with the name and we liked it.
    Buffy - 'fluffy Buffy' my choice.
    Blossom - we said at the time that she was now able to 'Blossom' into the rabbit she was supposed to be.
    Loki - because when we got him he was small and evil (he's not anymore, well still small, but not evil).
    Thor and Skye - to match with Loki (Skye is from Marvel Agents of Shield).
    Spud - my dd said he was like a little potato.
    Dottie - for obvious reasons.
    Ziggy - chosen by the children.

    I liked the name Atticus from to kill a mockingbird, and my mum chose Clementines name kinda, I really loved it but I often ask her what she thinks about names haha, she also named Gus the hamster, as we didn't know what to call him and she said he looked like a Gus and it stuck

    I have a list of names I love tho, some pretty out there and with previous animals I've always just known what to call them

    My OH who didn't want bunnies fell in love with the picture of Archie before we got there. He was named before we saw him as Archiebald Montgomery Barnicle by my OH.
    This is because he looks like a grumpy old bun who would look dashing in a tweed jacket and monocle. Lol

    However he is only called that when he is being naughty.

    He quickly became Boob, because he's clumsy and a bit of a Boob. But this has now become Boobles. Or Archie Boo.

    Pretty sure he also named Pippin when we got there. Just because it suited her.

    She is more often called Pip, Pip Pip, Pipsqueak, Squeaker or my personal favourite.....Squeakathon.....lol

    Neighbours must think we are bananas.
