Female rabbit names can be cute and girly, elegant, or tough and feisty. These are our 100 favorite female rabbit names to suit every taste:
Choosing Female Rabbit Names
Choosing a name for a pet bunny is difficult, especially if there are multiple opinions involved. Some people like to wait a couple days to get to know their rabbit’s personality a little better before deciding.
Others have a name prepared before they even bring their bunny home. Whichever camp you’re in, there are no rules when it comes to picking a name.
Naming your pet is more an action of bonding, as giving something a name means it is important to you.
Naming a bunny can also be helpful in communication because, believe it or not, bunnies can learn their names as well as simple tricks.
The Test of Time
Though bunnies won’t care what you call them, you’ll be using their name for years to come, so it is important to pick a name you won’t get tired of.
For instance, when you’re young you might think a certain name is great, but when you get older it either becomes silly, childish, or even embarrassing.
A name that comes to my mind is from HBO’s television series, Game of Thrones. When he’s a toddler, Rickon Stark names his direwolf “Shaggy Dog.” I imagine when he got older the name was much less appealing to him.
As you can see, the best name for your bunny is one that you will continue to love for their entire lifetime.
We hope this article will help you in your endeavor to find that name.

Fun Facts About Female Rabbits
How much do you know about rabbits? We’ve put together some fun facts for both new owners and bunny-veterans alike.
Female rabbits are called does, whereas males are called bucks. Baby rabbits are called kittens.
Rabbits are crepuscular, which means they are most active during dusk and dawn.
Healthy domestic rabbits can live longer than 10 years. This is why it’s important to keep your future bunny in a clean habitat and feed her a healthy diet.
It is estimated that only 15% of wild rabbits survive their first year of life. Luckily, rabbits copulate three to four times a year, producing litters of between three and eight babies. This helps ensure their survival.
Rabbits teeth never stop growing, which is why they need wooden toys to chew on and an endless supply of timothy hay. Without these things, their teeth could grow too long and become painful or even inhibit them from eating.
It is normal for rabbits to eat their own poop. This sounds pretty gross to us, but rabbits can get nutrition from the droppings that they may not have gotten the first time around. These droppings are called cecotropes.
Are Rabbits Good Family Pets?
Bunnies actually aren’t great pets for young children. They are rather fragile and still have the instincts of prey animals, which means they are easily stressed out by improper handling, and may bite your child if they feel threatened.
Rabbits are very social animals, and thus tend to do better when adopted in pairs.
Believe it or not, rabbits are actually a relatively common find at animal shelters. In fact, they are the third most commonly surrendered animal after dogs and cats.
Congratulations on your new female rabbit, and we hope our article was able to help you choose a great name.
