So here he is.... The beautiful young bun who has stolen Bunnygirls heart..... She is looking for a name.

I suggested Apollo who is the greek god of sun and light.But there are many other names out there so please offer up your ideas.

Personally, I love Apollo

Oh, my!!! He's so incredibly adorable!!!! How old is he?

I like the name Apollo. I love the names Artemis and Rain for a bunny.

I think he is about 3-4 weeks right now. He's still with his mum obviously, I go up and handle him and that's how I got the picture!

With his coloring, I'd go with Artemis, goddess of the moon (in later times), and animals. Artemis can be a boys name too

How adorable! I love using Greek names for bunnies I like the idea of the moon for her coloring. Selene is another Greek option. Or Luna for the Latin equivalent. She needs a really adorable name. She has an adorable face.

I believe it's a boy.... But neutral names might be a good idea. It wouldn't be the first time a breeder or a vet for that matter got it wrong. Artemis is good too. It could be Artie for short.

He's so cute! I dropped Mythology because the professor decided to change the course and not teach us this stuff so I'm pretty bad with the greek gods things. I like all the names suggested. Artemis is cool cuz you could call him "art" for short

LOL! Boy bunny. Ok then. Apollo is good. Hercules, he's so tiny it's ironic. I like irony. Or Atlas, the god who carried the earth on his back, again with the irony.

Had a quick look on the net and found this "Apollonia ... Latin feminine form of the Greek male name Apollonios, from Apollo. Mythology ... Apollo was the Greek god of sunlight, music, and poetry ... [10]" in the event of gender confusion "Polly" could also be used as a back up

"Luna" is beautiful too....

I have a Luna but in this case it is short for Luna-tic

 

Although she is still commonly referred to by her other name "Osama Bin Kitten"

My friend and neighbour spent the first few months referring to her as "That thing possessed". Luna was born at the vets and spent the first 12 weeks of her life in a 1mx1mx1m cage with occasional free runs in the back room of the practice. I went down on the Easter weekend (2007) to a stall my Mothers seniors club had in a local park. She new I had seen Luna and her Mum at the vets and told me that all the others incl Mum Cat had been adopted and Luna was there alone (because she had hurt her foot and had been kept out the back of the surgery) a quick call to the vet to tell them to wait for me and off I went. I walked in the doors and there she is, a young chap was sitting next to her cage talking to her and Luna was hanging upside down from the top of the cage with a newspaper bow toy in her teeth her head spinning like something out of the exorcist. I walked up to the counter and announced I was there to adopt. 20 minutes later Luna was home and running completely amok. On a later trip to the vet when she sprained her leg again stampeding like a mad thing the vet nurses were crowded round giving her cuddles and kisses. I mentioned her nickname OBK and my vet just smirked. The sod knew what I was getting myself into. He knew all along!!!! I love Lunatic regardless and she adores and is adored by my other pets. We have regular Sunday morning chats over coffee in the front courtyard. Luna is quite the conversationalist.

Aww! That's adorable...but a bit freaky! But the weird ones are always the best! I spoke to the lady again today, my name is going down by my little Apollo, he is officially mine! Yay! I am SOOOOOO excited! Only 4 more weeks till he's old enough to leave mum, and maybe that same amount before he's mine. But it might be 6 weeks till he's mine. But he's a little sweetie and I can't wait! More pics when I get him, promise!

P.S Say hello to Luna for me! and Piglet...and all the other animals (Still learning names! Hehe!)

Tzatziki! Sorry, I couldn't resist. :p  Apollo is a cool name. Roly Poly Apollo. : )

He is super cute bunnygirl! He looks like I imagine my Rumball would have looked like, only in a different colour. <3

I can't help but notice the cages in background of the last picture you added. Please tell me they let them out of these on a regular basis.

Oh yes Jerseygirl! The cages are twice the size you can see in the picture, and they all get time on the floor everyday. She blocks off the entire car port and they run about separately each for about an hour. Either that, or she gets out her 4 xpens and 4 different lucky buns get run time. Don't worry! I wouldn't buy from her if I didn't trust her. She takes great care of her buns. The only fault I can give her is that she supplies a mix of straw and hay for their bedding, they don't get hay separately (not that bad I suppose, encourages foraging!) and her feed mix isn't that brilliant. Chaff and pellets and little bits of corn. Ill be weaning Apollo off that mix straight away!

Thanks. I know I shouldn't judge too quickly just from one picture. I'm glad to hear they get exercise time.

The hay+straw combo is not so bad. They probably eat the straw too and it's a great insulator against the cold.

Roberta -- LMAAAAOOOOOOO. That's gotta be the BEST story ever! Your Luna and my buns! Hmmm... maybe I should name my next one the same thing. Luna-tic. We all know how these Tans are! ;0

I'm so excited for you, Bunnygirl! I screamed with excitement when my name went down next to my babys name on the website. Literally, screamed! It's sooo exciting and baby buns are SOOO cute and playful and it's so much fun watching them grow and their personalities REALLY start to come out after a few months! AHHHHH --- sooo excited!

I know! I went up and she'd drawn up a list in her car port and she was just like "So which one did you pick?" And I was like "We'll, could I possibly take the little chinchilla male in the hutch down there?" And she was like "You're sure?" "Yep." "Ok then, ill just write your name here." And she wrote it. He's mine only 4 more weeks. Sheesh....I need to start getting stuff together! Omg...I haven't got long at all...ahhhh!

Haha oh dear! Isn't 3 tans enough? You want quadruplets? You'd have to make the condo bigger, and have about 2 extra pairs of eyes to watch them all during playtime! Haha! Ill keep you updated with plenty of pictures of my little baby! I'm really looking forward to bringing him home. It'll be wonderful! Ahhhhhhhh! x

Excuse his weird looking back leg, I had my arm there before so he felt secure, but I had to move it for the picture. Sorry if you didn't feel safe Apollo!
Hahaha Bullrider! 8 buns is a lot, so I'd agree, you're a hoarder! Haha! Don't go buying anymore or you'll be a petting zoo not a hoarder! Haha!

And yes, 4 would be a lotttttt.  But it would be soooo worth it.  I've wanted him for MONTHS.  And he's a lilac Tan.  Absolutely gorgeoussss.  UGH.. I seriously stalk him on her website like every single day... OKaaaay, like 9 times a day.
