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!

 
 
 
Princess
Daisy

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!

      Noah, my seven year old, just got two males a week ago, a white red eyed rosette and a smooth white with black head and eyes. He named them Super Guinea Pig Barney (rosette) and George Williamson (smooth). Super slinks like a cautious rat and George is a watcher. When he sits down they come running to climb on his lap (free range the master bath and the outdoor enclosure). Around everyone else, they are very hesitant.

      Hi! Don't make your guinea pig suffer by only getting one, get TWO, they are very social animals and no other animals speak the secret guinea pig language (wich by the way, is adorable!)

      The information you've given is absolutely WRONGF. They do not have "minimal space requirements". They need lots of room and space to run because they are constantly active, and sleep four hours in a twenty-four hour period. This is absolute misinformation, and I cannot believe this is on pet site. Do NOT believe a word this article says if you want to get a guinea pig! They are are hard work, and take a lot of time, energy, and patience! I have six guinea pigs (four girls, one boy), and they require a lot of time, and effort. IF YOU ARE TO GET A CAGE, DO NOT GET ONE AT THE STORE. The pet store cages are advertised for them, but they do NOT have enough room for them to be happy and healthy. They MUST have enclosures. Look up "C&C Guinea Pig Cages/Enclosures", they are so cheap and can be made any shape or size to accommodate your little guy. FOR THE LOVE OF ANIMALS, DO NOT LISTEN TO THE INFORMATION IN THE BEGINNING OF THIS ARTICLE!!!!!!

      I had a grey and white Mini rex (rabbit) and a copper colored American Longhair guinea pig. Aptly named Energizer and Duracell.

      "Miss Pig" as we sometimes referred to her had shiny human hair-like fur and looked like a mass of shiny pennies running around. I sometimes called her Sugar as her sense of smell was very high. When my mother's glucose level was getting too low or too high she could smell the difference and would sound the alarm. She'd then quiet down after hearing the lancet click but if nothing happened after the beep of the meter she would then raise hell till a wrapper (of a syringe or candy) was heard.
