Choosing From the Best Names for Rabbits

Aug 11, 2008
When you bring home a pet rabbit or two, you want to give your new bunny a name that will be easy for it to learn to recognize as its name. Some of the most popular names for rabbits are:

- Flopsy, because of its big ears

- Hoppy, or some word that has "hop" in it, because that is what rabbits do

- Cottontail, because of the size and shape of its tail

- Velvet or other words to describe the feel of the rabbit's fur

- Brownie, which has to do with the color of the fur.

Although you might have a beautiful and unusual name chosen before the rabbit even arrives, it is important to note that rabbits have their own personalities just as dogs and cats do. If you wish to wait a few days to get to know the rabbit, you may be able to discern some personality trait that will lead you to choose a name that suits the way the rabbit behaves. A rabbit that runs around and is often hard to catch could easily be called Racer. One that is very shy and tries to hide away could be called Shy Bunny, hidey or Hideaway.

You certainly will want to train your rabbit and one of the first things you do need to train it is to come when you call its name. The name should be one that is easy for you to say. Start this training by finding out whish food the rabbit likes best and use this food to get it to come to you. Each time you hold out the food, say the rabbit's name. You will have to do this many times before the rabbit will respond to your command without the food. Once the rabbit knows its name you can start using other commands in combination with the name. This is why you should choose a name that does not rhyme with any of the command words.

Choosing a name for your rabbit is one of the fun and exciting parts of obtaining a new pet. Sometimes it is hard to come up with a name that is not commonly used for other pets. You might want to choose one that will make you laugh. You do have to like the name because if you're not particularly fond of the name, the rabbit will pick up on the tone of your voice every time you say it. It should also be something that will not embarrass you when you use it in front of others.

There is nothing wrong with looking at a list of baby names. There are tons of these lists available in books and online. You can choose a name for either a boy or a girl rabbit or one that is generic in that it will suit either gender. You can even ask others to help you name the rabbit and hold a sort of competition to see who comes up with the best name.
