Rabbit Names: How To Pick A Name For Your Bunny

Updated on July 16, 2008

What Will His Name Be?

Choosing a name for your bunny is one of the fun things about getting a new rabbit. But sometimes its just so hard to come up with any inspiration. Your bunny's name shouldn't just be cute, it should also be easy for the Rabbit to understand. Easy names to understand are those that sound a little different from everyday speech. It helps if the bunny's name is one that is fun for you to say, or makes you laugh, as the tone in your voice will also influence how quickly the bunny learns its name.

If you're having trouble coming up with a name for your rabbit, you can ask friends or family, or look up in a book of baby names. Sometimes the best names come to you when you're not even thinking about them. There's no need to be in a rush to name your bunny either, you have plenty of time to get to know your bunny and see what kind of temperament it has before deciding on a name for good. Alternatively, it can sometimes be nice to let someone else name your bunny, like a brother or sister.

If you're still stuck thinking about what to call that cute little bunny you have, here are some fun bunny names, ranging from the classic to the unique.

Abba, Alvin, Ace

Bandit, Boo, Bouncer, Brat, Basil, Binky, Barney, Basil, Brutus, Biggie Smalls

      I'm extremely young, I'm only 10. I just got 2 bunnies. My brother named the male (Lionhead) bunny, and I get to name the female (albino Lionhead) bunny. I just can't decide on a name. I don't like names to do with color like Snowball, Snowbell, Blizzard, etc. But I want a normal name (Not food) like Stella or Winnie or something. Any ideas?

      I had Rosie, Nibbles, Oreo, Hershey, Rocky Road, Cinnamon, and Chocolate Chip personally. My mom had Coconut, Corky, Konan, Stuart, Teddy Bear, and Socks. my brother had Floppy. my sister had Thumper and Kelsi. We got them all used to their names and humans before they even went to another family and that was from birth. Oreo and Rocky Road were the sweetest babies. Stuart was half blind and Socks and Rosie really hated carrots. Teddy Bear was an escape artist.

      Those are all awesome names! Our bunny's name is badoing because when he hops he goes badoing, badoing! The kids wanted to call him bugs bunny but thought it should be more original ....so his full formal name is Bugs Badoing Chin-Chin Bunny! Chin=Chin because he chins everything in site and when he flops on his side....he looks oriental.....he is sooo cute.

      I named my bunny Ember. She's a dutch so she has a blaze, but Blaze is a male name. Ember always struck me as a female name, and because they both have to do with fire, they are related. In short, her name is Ember because she has a blaze.

      I might be getting a bunny and had some name ideas, but you can use them if you don't have them already and like them.... if I get a boy I was planing on either Tiny Tim, Percy, or Thumper. I had some trouble with girl rabbits names, I'm not quite sure that i like these, but honey, autumn, or rose. If you have any name ideas for me, please post a comment saying boy or girl and the names. Thanks!
