What to Name Your New Guinea Pig

So you are getting a guinea pig? You must be squealing just like one with excitement! Who wouldn’t at the news that you are getting one of the cutest, cuddliest, and most lovable little fuzzy animals alive?

Guinea pigs make wonderful pets and are low maintenance. They do not require a whole lot of space, their housing requirements are minimal, and it's a lot of fun to build them a little play area! They enjoy the company of other guinea pigs and really form a bond with their owners. You will love them for their entire five to seven year lifespan, and they'll love you right back.

So, do you have any idea what you will name your guinea pig? Meeting your match at the pet store is the easy part, but giving it a name might not be so easy. If you are lucky, the name will just come to you as soon as you chose which one to take home. Most are not that lucky, and, therefore, need to do a little research.

To make this matter a little easier, I have compiled a list of the best guinea pig names that I could find or think of. Scroll down to find different names in separate categories.

Boy Guinea Pig Names

Male names often sound more “fierce” than girly names, but whether your guinea pig is more of an attention-hog or a shy piglet, there’s a name for all!


Girl Guinea Pig Names

Girl names commonly have a “girly” feel to them and often reflect the foods we eat! Why? Because girls are sweet, so is food, and girls love food. That’s not all that is on our list, of course, so check it out!


Cute Guinea Pig Names

Guinea pigs are adorably fuzzy little critters. These cute pets deserve a name as cute as they are! Check out these cute guinea pig names, great for males and females!

Stud Muffin
Cuddle Bunny

Funny Guinea Pig Names

It's easy to come up with a funny name for your furry friend. Pick a name that plays on their species or their small stature, for starters.

Ginny Pig
The Hulk
Bam Bam
Pork Chop
Jack Hammer

Picking a Guinea Pig Name

There are plenty of names to choose from, and hopefully you have already found one you like by this point, but if you haven't, not to worry!

Whether you have a male or female guinea pig, try assessing its personality and outer appearance to help you pick a name.

  • Does it run to you right away, or is it still a bit skittish?
  • Is it loud, or does it make little noise?
  • What color is it and what “hairstyle” does it have?

Answering these questions can help when deciding between two or three names, too.

Let Your Guinea Pig Help Decide

Still don’t have a name? I’m a fan of letting my animals help in this process just because I am so indecisive when it comes to these things, not to mention the silly memories that it makes. There are a couple of ways a guinea pig can “help” choose a name.

  • If you have an outgoing piggy, have a few friends sit in a circle, assign a name to each person, and place the guinea pig in the middle. The guinea pig takes on the name of the person it goes to first!
  • Write different names on a few index cards and place them around the room with some guinea pig food; you can even do this in the cage if it’s big enough. Whichever card it eats off first is the name that the guinea pig chooses! Easy, right? I think so!

Whatever you do to figure out the guinea pig’s name, have fun with it!

      Twizzler the Guinea Pig 3 months ago

      Little Adventurers ROCKS!!!! And my advise to JJ_S is let her spend a lot of time with them if you're talking about her and people. But if it's other "Pigs" then hold them at the same time and feed them together. When Maggie realizes that she is just going to have to get used to it she'll adapt. watch them carefully though, make sure they aren't bulling her! "Pigs" show dominance by standing up on one another, if they are consider adding separate food and water dishes, toys, and beds. If this dose not work, separate, but hold together. Hope I Helped!
