    Meet my new friend! She needs a name!

    So my friend surprised me with a guinea pig today. I had absolutely no idea she was going to be doing this. She IS a petco pig so I will be bringing her in for a vet visit to make sure she's healthy. I immediately went out and purchased food (Oxbow), hay,a hidey, and a food bowl. Luckily I already had a spare water bottle. Right now she's housed in a critter nation cage, but I will be switching over to a 2x4 C&C cage VERY soon. I'll also be switching over to fleece bedding. The towel was just the only thing I had on hand to put on the bottom of the cage. I had zero prep time for this new pal.

    As soon as I'm sure of her sex, and have the appropriate cage set up I will be getting (adopting) her a friend as well!

    But right now, I've had her about 8 hours and she doesn't have a name! I'm taking any and all suggestions! So far my roommates have suggested Butter and Pork Chop so food seems to be on their brains xD

    Here's some reading material for new pig owners. But the first things to know are that no pet store cage is large enough for a guinea pig, and she needs a buddy.

    Thank you for the resources! However I do know this I've kept guinea pigs for 10 years, and have been a long time browser of this forum!
    The reason the cage is not a C&C cage at the moment, and she's alone is because my friend surprised me with her without me knowing beforehand. I'll be picking up my old C&C cage from my mothers house this week (it's a 2x4) and watching my local shelters for listings once I'm 100% she's a girl.

    I just had to gather what I could for the next few days. Had I more time to prepare, I would have had the C&C cage from the start and made sure she had a friend.

    Some suggestions:

    Pepper
    Hedwig
    Artemis
    Shadow
    Figwit
    Pebbles
    Luna
    Miffy

    Those are the first that leapt to mind seeing her

    If her personality turns out to be smart and spunky (and you're a Game of Thrones fan) you could name her Arya.

    Are you into human names for your animals or other names? I'm usually best at human names.
    Anya
    Ayla
    Raina
    Sammy
    Serena
    Juno or June Bug
    Sage
    Celia (Cecelia)

    These are just the names that came to me from looking at her sweet face. She looks like a gentle one.

    Re: Meet my new friend! She needs a name!

    Oh! I really like Pebbles or Sage
    However, with my roommates insistence on the name Porkchop I may not be able to escape that.

    She looks a little bit like a little silver fox. Foxy Roxy
