Welcome To Our Complete Guide To Rabbit Names.
Rabbits make wonderful pets.
They are intelligent, playful and can form really strong bonds with their owners.
If you are thinking of bringing a new bunny into your life, then you will want to find the perfect name for your new pet.
Bunny names can come from anywhere.
There is no baby rabbit names rulebook to tell you what is appropriate.
Which is great, beause it gives you loads of scope to choose the best rabbit names. But can also make things tricky, because you have literally a whole to choose from.
Naming your rabbit
You probably won’t be teaching your bun any tricks, or getting her to come when she’s called. But you will still want her to have a name that she can recognize.
My bunnies know when it’s there turn to come and play, or have some treats. If you use their name every time you interact with them they will soon learn.
So in this regard, short and simple names can be good bunny names.
But that doesn’t mean you can’t have fun thinking up the perfect style of name to suit your rabbit.
Boy rabbit names
One tried and true way of naming pets is with traditional names.
Boy bunny names can be based on names that could fit as well on a human as they do on a rabbit.
But finding male rabbit names on a baby naming site or in a book can be a bit of a task. This is because lots of names that sound great on humans, don’t fit so very well on our pets.
Shorter names are generally preferable, and so are those that have a bit of an added cute factor.
Here are some of our favorite boy rabbit names.
From male bunny names to female bunny names. It’s time for the girls!
Female rabbit names
Just like with the boys, girl rabbit names can sound great when they are more traditional.
But they don’t have to be boring names, by any stretch. You can choose modern names, old fashioned names or more unusual names.
These girl bunny names give you a range of ideas to choose from, or to help you to get inspired about finding some of your own.
Good rabbit names can be traditionally human style names. But they can also be descriptive.

With a variety of gorgeous patterns from tuxedo to spotty to striped, there are lots of ways a rabbit can have a black and white coat.
