Rabbits are the most popular “small furry” pet out there, and it’s so easy to see why. They’re intelligent and bond very closely with their owners and rabbit group. Picking a name that fits your wonderful new pet is always tricky, but rabbits are so unique in character and appearance that it can be quite a challenge!

Luckily, we’ve brought you the best, most adorable, popular choices of names for your bunny so you can choose a name that will suit your rabbit perfectly. This list has a name that will suit every bunny, from the smallest dwarf to the largest, longest giant. So take a look and see which names you’d pick.


How To Name Your Rabbit

It’s often easy to think up cute names for your pets on the fly, but it can suddenly get much more tricky when you meet them. For example, you might have been considering a cute, fluffy name. However, you might’ve discovered they love nothing more than tearing around their enclosure, throwing toys, and acting more like a gladiator than a ballerina!

Finding a name that suits your bunny could be based on many factors, such as personality, coat color, fur type, or even size. The key is to find one that you think suits them best.

Sometimes, the best name could even be the opposite of what’s true (like naming a Flemish Giant “Tiny”). Ultimately, if you can whittle a list down to a few names, try them out on your new bunny. Your rabbit will likely take to one over the others!
