Help Me Name My New Bunny Rabbit!

    wordscribe43posted 5 years ago

    Okay, so not too long ago I posted a similar thread asking for help naming my new dog.  I got so many great responses and ideas, I thought I'd throw this one out to the community as well. 

    Anyway, I've dreamed of having a rabbit for many years and it finally came true for Christmas. 

    She is 4 months old and is a Dutch mix.  As you can see from the picture, she is orange(ish) brown and white with beautiful blue eyes.  I just cannot get a name I like for her.  She's very funny, constantly doing her little binkies all over the place.  She likes playing with my cats, believe it or not!  They rather like her, too.

    Anyway, any good name ideas?

      Oh i just read your post, if she is really orange and not green (my monitor might be broken) then name her Pokey.

        Pokey has a very rude meaning in the Philippines which may apply more to your cat if you get my drift!! lol

          Since Ive been gone, I bought a little house. My salary got cut so far I qualified for a 1% down mortgage thru the housing development authority.
          I found a place for under $40,000! I can totally afford it. And they are starting to restore the pay they cut.
          So Im smiling!!!

          Hows your little guy doing?

            Congrats on the house!  Wow, maybe we should move to Michigan, man real estate is so expensive here.  We want to move, but it's almost impossible to sell a house right now.  sad

            Great news about my son's Coates disease.  He had eye surgery a while back and it was very successful.  They did what they could to zap his leaky blood vessels, and they did a great job.  Although he could relapse any time, he hasn't so far.  There has been permanent damage to the retina, but not so bad that he can't have a normal life.  He will be able to drive and all that. 

            We're optimistic it might not ever come back.  Generally speaking, it does, but the doctor is encouraged so much time has elapsed without any more macular problems. He has to go see the Ophthalmologist frequently, but we can live with that.  Thanks for asking!

              Great news! smile  Ive been wondering how he is doing with his eyesight.

              I paid less than half of what the previous owners paid when they bought this house. Thats pretty typical for this area it seems.

              I told them at the closing that I felt bad about the huge loss they had to take, but getting this house kept me from sleeping in my truck. Or moving 300 miles north to sleep on my moms couch!!  lol

      Topsy was one of the names Beatix Potter chose for the little bunnies in her books, wasn't it? It's been awhile since I read her stories, but I believe Peter Rabbit's brothers and sisters were Topsy, Mopsy and Cottontail. Or was that Flopsy? Topsy, Flopsy -both are very cute, just like wordscribe43's new bunny!

    Thumper?

    Does she thump?

    I got shown round a local rabbit farm here recently and it was a huge barn filled with rows upon rows of tiny cages.
    I walked in and was met with a drum roll of thumps. I looked around and each TINY CAGE - maybe 3 feet square each - contained about 10 rabbits each in all stages of development from babies upwards.

    They were gorgeous, but every single one of them was terrified and thumping away like mad things.

    They looked like pet rabbits, not wild rabbits.

    Then the farmer asked me to choose one for the pot! You gotta be kidding!!

    Guess I learned what a rabbit farm is, that day. (I thought they maybe supplied pet shops).

    I never eat rabbit, not because they don't taste nice, they do, but because I used to keep them as pets and could never eat one.

            I accidently took about 2x recommended dosage in the span of 5 hours. I should have read the instructions. I still haven't even read them actually. I don't care any more because I am never going to touch NyQuil ever again.

            And no, I would never intentionally harm my mind or body. (Never use dangerous drugs.)

      Yes, we're in the process of litter training her.  Funny thing, she's doing really well except for one place:  our BED!  The second she jumps up she poops and more often than not pees.  I can't keep her off of the bed, really. Any thoughts?

      1. profile image60
        Handsonexperienceposted 5 years ago in reply to this

        I would try putting a litter box on the bed but, seeing that she is young, not is not uncommon for them to do that when they are jumping around. Also, try putting her IN her litter box before she gets in the bed and secure her there to see if she will go to the bathroom before she gets on the bed. I think she is just excited and is still a little young to control herself!
        Another thing you can try is get the plastic side rails that you can put on a toddler's first bed so they don't roll out and put one or both up where she is jumping up on the bed....just some thoughts! Hope they help! They are wonderful pets!!!

        1. wordscribe43 profile image92
          wordscribe43posted 5 years ago in reply to this

          Great suggestions!  I've thought about putting a litter box on the bed, will try that.  I can also try to put her in her litter box before she comes up, but often she's just suddenly UP here without me having any pre-warning.  She just loves the bed for some reason! 

          You're right, she just gets really excited and can't control herself.  I'm hoping she'll get the hang of it the older she gets.  It's not a huge deal, really.  I love her so much, I can easily put up with it.

          You're right, they are great pets.  I have a new appreciation for how funny they are.  She found a soda can the other day and started throwing it up in the air like a dog!  It was hilarious!!! 

          I hope she'll get accustomed to us picking her up, she doesn't love it.  She scrambles around and tries to get away at first, but once I finally get control of her and start petting her, she calms down.  But, she's pretty darn hard to catch!

            Glad you liked the suggestions! We have a rabbit like that - not too fond of being picked up and especially if she is running loose! I have found with her and our others that once you pick them up, if you cradle them like you would hold a baby that they will calm down. Also, usually you will see their head tip back and they go to sleep or get in a trance. Funny but so cute!
            Our rabbits love to move their Pellet dishes around. We have one that literally picks it up and tosses it in the cage! The more you hold them and spend time with them, the closer they get to you. Ours watch TV with us and love to sit in my lap. I make sure they all get quality time with me and/or my husband. Have fund and keep me posted!

              It's so fun to talk to another rabbit owner.  I'm so glad you joined HP when you did!

                    I'll have to do some rabbit research first. Things like:

                    How long do they live?

                    Do they know not to draw to an inside-straight?

                    Do they like M&M's?

                    Etc.

    Hazel-rah. My favorite rabbit in all of literature. If you haven't read Watership Down, the name probably won't click with you.

      Oh yeah, I am familiar with Watership Down.  That's another name to add to the list...  This has been so helpful.  I'm trying to narrow it down to the top five.  Thanks!

        So, what are your top 5?  There's been some really cute suggestions.  My top 5 seem to be : Pebbles, Trixie, Thumper, Checker, and Biggs.  I am not sure why I like Biggs, but it just seems cute for her

    Yes they can.  I owned a rabbit that used his litter box all the time.  Rabbits are smart animals and catch on very quickly.  Of course it is easier if they are fixed.

    Okay, so the decision is final...  A HUGE thank you to everyone for the great suggestions.  We've mutually decided on (drumroll, please)...

    TRIXIE

    Thanks, Sunforged.  It just fits her in so many ways.  Makes me think of the Trix cereal commercial, too.

      oh, I love it! How cute, and how sweet it was sunforged. I remember a while back when he came to the forums when he was trying to find the perfect name for his soon to be born daughter.
      Trixie is perfect!

        Oh, yeah!  I remember that, too.  Funny, sunforged and I must have similar tastes in names because I remember liking a lot of the names he liked for his baby...  like Eva, Eve, can't remember the other ones. 

        I'm so glad she finally has a name. It's been driving me crazy calling her "bunny".

      I used to have a big white goat called Trixie, well her full pedigree name was 'Chantellaine Trixie' but we just called her Trixie. I went on to buy a horse called Dixie, and we already had a cat called Pixie, so we literally ended up with three pets whose names rhymed perfectly. Pixie, Dixie and Trixie, and it was a complete coincidence smile

        That's funny!  When I was a kid we used to have guinea pigs named spiffy, sniffy and iffy.  But, no coincidence there.  Next rabbit name?  Bonnie, it was my runner-up!

          Just buy a male rabbit as a companion to Trixie and in no time at all you'll be able to use all the name suggestions on this thread!

          Why not buy her a companion (the same sex) and call her Bonnie! Rabbits like to have a companion to cuddle up to when they are in their cage.

    how about PoGo,  or P.S. for pogo stick.  Those were suggestions from my kids.  Other suggestions were hopscotch, licketi-split, or twitch.

    surely you've named the bunny by now?  If not you better hurry up, it will get a complex, being unnamed.  I still think Humper (Humpy for short) is a great name and appropriate  too!

      wordscribe43posted 5 years ago in reply to this

      Yes, I named her Trixie.  It just suits her perfectly, thanks to Sunforged for the suggestion!
