What Was The Rabbits Name from Alice in Wonderland?

Alice in Wonderland at Disney World

Alice in Wonderland was one of my childhood favorite books. Thinking that a girl could fall down a rabbit hole and the adventures that she would have. As i was reading Alice in Wonderland to my daughter i suddenly realized I had forgotten what the rabbits name was. Well to my surprise the rabbit's name was The White Rabbit. Now you would have thought with the role he played in the book that he would have had a more exciting name than the White Rabbit. With that being said it is still a wonderful classic book for all young people to explore.

According to the book Looking Glass Wars, his name is Bibwit Harte. Which is an anagram of the words White Rabbit. But then in that book, he's not really a rabbit, he's an albino with really large ears who is super intelligent with really great hearing. The book, truly is not as cheesy as it sounds!

In the book, Alice's Adventures in Wonderland, the white rabbit's name is White Rabbit. His house even has a brass plaque "with the name `W. RABBIT' engraved upon it."

In Disney's 1951 animated film he is also referred to exclusively as the White Rabbit or Mr Rabbit, but in Tim Burton's 2010 film, he has been named Sir Nivens McTwisp.

(People sometimes think that the March Hare, who was at the mad tea party, is a rabbit, but hares and rabbits are actually different animals, though very similar. In the book he is called March Hare, but Tim Burton has named him Thackery Earwicket.)
