    Re: How Did You Name Your Piggie?

    Phoenix and Godric both had different names before I got them, however I'd have to search through tons of different papers to find out what they were. xD I named Phoenix because of the fact that she is really a Roan pig, and Phoenix are a sorta red color. Godric got her name from a character in a show, he had really white skin because he was a vampire, and black tattoos, Godric's fur is white with black markings, so I thought it just fit. Fus and Ro Dah used to be Checkers and Bingo when they came from the rescue, but I don't really care for those sorta generic type names, so I named them after something in Skyrim. (A video game) The words "Fus Ro Dah" when shouted, create a power that attacks the things it is directed at (Kinda hard to explain, you would have to play the game to get what it means) So I named mommy pig the first half of it "Fus" and baby pig the second half "Ro Dah"

    Re: How Did You Name Your Piggie?

    When I got my two at first sight I called my Longed haired piggy Rex, I don't why as far as I can remember it was because he looked like he had just been hit by lighting the way his hair was sticking up. The other one still had no name when we got home, you see I said my little brother could name one but all he could come up with were names only a cheeky little boy would want. Then we were having dinner and my brother was blowing bubbles and just randomly I said, " How about Bubbles?". And of course my brother said yes, I was waiting for you too say that, that's why I was blowing bubbles. Haha, yea right.

    I love your pig's names! I had tried watching Hellsing before but for some reason it just too graphic for me, though most of the time that kinda stuff doesn't bother me. If I get any more pigs in the near future, I plan to name them after characters in Naruto.

    Oh yeah, I agree Hellsing isn't for everyone. It's a pretty crazy show! xD Thanks though! FullMetal Alchemist is my favorite anime ever, and I might have to try that theme again in the future.

    Re: How Did You Name Your Piggie?

    Our pigs were a 5th birthday gift to our son Cannon. He has been saying he loooves guinea pigs since he was 3. He named his pig "George". I don't know why. The second pig was named by our oldes daughter. She chose the name Flutterbee, which I kind of disliked and the smaller children were having a hard time saying it, so I gently suggested naming her after a Fraggle. She chose the name Moki, but then Moki turned out to be a boy, so she changed the name to Gobo. If we get any more pigs in the future, we will stick with the Fraggle theme, and then move on to Muppets if we run out of Fraggles. I just think Guinea Pigs look Muppet-y.

    Re: How Did You Name Your Piggie?

    I got my guinea pig from a rescue and her original name was Anastasia. I met her a few weeks before I actually adopted her, and they told me she was very independent and sassy. I actually heard them call her "Little Monster" because she was only a couple months old and was already not getting along with other guinea pigs and just being her sassy self. Well, the "Little Monster" fell asleep in my lap and that was it; she was mine!

    I had picked her name out before I even went to go bring her home. I decided on the name Millie because it means strong and independent in French or some other language. I thought it fit her personality perfectly! It was one of those names that clicked the second I found it. She still my sassy little girl, but she LOVES to cuddle with her humans!

    Re: How Did You Name Your Piggie?

    I have a black and white pig and a white, tan, and brown one. I was going to name them Oreo and Hershey but it didn't feel right, and Oreo seems to be over used when it comes to black and white pigs.
    So I named the black and white one Panda. The brown, tan, and white pig used to bully Panda a lot, he would mount him, nip, and even steal his food. I named him Loki as in the Norse god of mischief because he was always causing trouble.
    Ironically when they grew up Loki became the calm submissive one while Panda became destructive. :P

    Is really hard, but we always found a perfect one for them.
    Malteada was named by my little brother, I thought it was a very sweet name.
    Juan Carlos simply fit with his face.
    With Olivia was very simple, is the name of one of my favourite songs and fits perfect with her.
    I don't really have a big story with names, I choose what I think it goes with them.

    I named mine George because I wanted a G name so I could call him G_____ the Guinea Pig.
    I've also been really into the Tudors lately, and George was a popular name in the Tudor era, so I thought it was perfect. I think it suits him pretty well.

    Dulce came with her name which I never changed.


    Elephant got her name because when she was a baby she had huge ears, and she kind of looked like an elephant shrew . I call her elle though.

    Cher Lloyd has always been my inspiration, and her fans call her Cher Bear so go figure, I named my guinea pigs Cher and Bear!

    Re: How Did You Name Your Piggie?

    @unaspirateur and I adopted Quee from a friend whose family moved out of state and couldn't take her. She never really had a name until we took her in, and we're not good at coming up with names. So, we decided on Quee because of the noise she made when she heard the bag of hay rustling. A month or so later, we bring home Kwee...thusly named because we had not grown any more clever, and she made the same noise as her older cagemate.

    Re: How Did You Name Your Piggie?

    When I first got my piggie, I named her Pork. [Because she is a pig...get it? *nudge nudge* ]
    I took her home, and her name was Pork for a while until I started feeding her different kinds of veggies. Her favorite veggie is greenbeans, so I decided to change her name to Bean, sometimes I call her Beanie.

    We got B&B from a rescue, and their names were Bingo and Brownie. We couldn't think of any good names, so we kept Bingo and Brownie.
