I had a hard time coming up with a name for Oren. His mom's name is Hugs, his dad is Ho Ho Mr. Chips. So I thought I better come up with a desent one LOL. He is a lop, so what you see first are his ears. He is a Holland Lop, the Holland folk speak Dutch. His name is Oren de Zomer. In Dutch, it means Ears of Summer.

My son wanted a lop-eared rabbit for his birthday (11) and so he decided after much research that he wanted a Holland Lop and would name her "Holly". Well we ended up with a mini-lop, thought it was male and named him "Zach", after 3 days we discovered she was a girl so naturally she became "Holly" . At Thanksgiving (3 weeks later) my bil was here and started laughing at her name and said Bunny Holly - how funny!  Her full name now is "Bunny Holly" and her nickname is "Holly" which we call her all the time - or just "Holls"!  Does anyone else have multiple names that they call their bunny, like we do?

WELCOME TO BINKYBUNNY PETLOVER.   I know there are a few bunnies here that have multiple names.  The one that stands out is right now is Brian BubbleBum.  Love that name. 

I love minilops!   I don't know what part of the world you are from, but if you are in the U.S.  Then I am guessing you are talking about the lop that is bigger than the Holland lop.  (in other parts of the world, the minilop is actually considered something else)

I think minilops are wonderful, and the fact they are bigger can make it actually better for kids, since they are a bit more sturdy. 

So what is Bunny Holly like?

We are in Ohio, and yes our mini-lop is larger than a Holland Lop - but we love her to death! She is about 4 1/2 months old and our once loving, cuddling, and lap bunny has now become slightly aggressive and chewy - especially toward feet!  I am thinking it is hormonal and am contemplating having her fixed.  She weighs 4.5 lbs. and has doubled in size from her size at 6 weeks.   She loves to run around the house and do binky dances.  She also loves to be petted on the side of her jaw and around her ear.  She even cooed like a pigeon the other day.  She will sit for 15 minutes at a time to be petted, just not in our lap anymore!  Holly is litter trained, however, lately she has been urinating on the carpet so she is limited to running only in the kitchen for now! Again, I think it is hormonal!

Hi Petlover,

Here's the line to the discussion about full names:  http://www.binkybunny.com/FORUM/tabid/54/view/topic/forumid/6/postid/2174/Default.aspx

For anyone who wants to post a past discussion. You can click on search (upper right corner of forum) put in a word or words that may match what you are looking for (example: "full names"  It will come up with stuff that is also not relevant, but usually you can spot the one you want or you have to refine your search.

Then just copy the address of the location from the address bar, and paste it in your post.

Nibbles - I got her on Valentine's day 3 years ago from my boyfriend who his "pet name" was Nibbles... so I decided it fit her for that reason. Also because she does in fact, nibble on everything in sight. So it also has a literal meaning as well!

Well, our Hercules was named cuz he was the biggest bun I had ever seen. Hence, Hercules. lol When I look at my buns, names just come to me. Chocolate, well, cuz she is a black bun. My Butterscotch, well, he's multi colored. Bugsy with her gray lop ears... And my daughter named Cotton Ball. lol Needless to say, Cotton Ball is a white dwarf.

Cowie is pretty self explainatory, here is a picture so you can see what I mean. When I went to the animal shelter the second I saw her I was just like "awww, she looks like a little cow" it was pretty funny. The people who had here orignially named her Baby, but really I can't stand that name, so I just started calling her Cowie, and Cow for short, she does respond to it.... when she feels like it. I'm still not sure if she's kinda stupid or just really really smart, like oh I hear you calling me but I'm just gonna continue chewing on this wall because that's what I wanna do and you can't stop me! Ya know that kind of attitude. She's pretty sassy, and she has occasionally lunged at me if I'm doing something in her cage that she doesn't like, for example putting the litter box back where it goes, after he has decided she wants it on the other side of the cage for the time being, you know stuff like that. Overall she's a very good natured bunny, and she has all these little quirks that are just too funny. When I got her, I never would have guessed that rabbits had sooo much personality, I was very very pleasently surprized.

I currently have 4 bunnies, 1 Who was going to be meat, one who was bred at the store by accident and one who was marked down because he was "mean" I am not certain how old each is. Which really stinks. Any how how i got their names.
Firefly-Hes my 1st bunny. I got him from the store and he was oh so mean. Misunderstood is what i think it was.Later while looking up bunnies on the net I discover hes a silver martin. They are small bunnies and man when i let him outta his cage he is like a speedy gonzolez. I decided to name him fire fly from the little burst of the orangish red color on the back of his neck behind his ears. His eyes are so big and cute.
Ladybug- Grubs mom. She is basically Just a light grey. Kind of like a storm cloud. Since we had firefly we figured we would keep a bug theme and she was such a sweet lady.Ie:ladybug
Grub- She is the baby from the mother we got from the store, shes 3 weeks old now, her colors are black with a peppered grey on the top of her coat. Dubbed grub because she is super cute as a button. Bunnys tend to live underground in the wild and since her nose is so short she just looked like a little grub pulled out of the ground.
Last but not least i have Junebug.
June bug was in a reptile store for feed. I couldn't let that happen to such a sweet rabbit I was told by the owner of the store she is a Hex mix so I am excited to see how big she gets.If you can immagine when you think of a Junebug she is pure black her eyes are a light brown, she is such a sweetheart. so that is the end of my themed critters of my affection

My babies (River and Simon) are named for characters in a TV show and a movie- Firefly and Serenity. They are the first pets that my SO and I have had together, and we both like the show! Plus, the characters were siblings, just like the buns.

Reni - welcome to Binky Bunny :-) It sounds like you've been a wonderful bunny champion. I am sure that Ladybug, Firefly, Grub and especially Junebug appreciate it.

Megsabelle - welcome! I love firefly & serenity too :-) I hope that your bunny River isn't quite as explosive as the one from the show!

Welcome Reni!  Wow, what a big heart you have!   Sounds like you really care so much about them and they are so lucky to have you and live with love.

 Welcome Megsabelle!  What Beautiful bunnies.  I got your pictures.  Adorable. I will be out of town for a bit, but as soon as I can I will put them in the gallery.  I will email you when I've put them in there.

i admire all of you that decided to adopt a bun. i found my bun on recycler and i guess the person i got mine from was a breeder but the mother of my bun was her house bun so maybe not.... but anyways, when i went to see her buns, i immediately fell in love with the two i got. both of them were so calm compared to the others (they were trying really hard to get out of their cage). to boot, my black one had such a cute face i couldnt turn her down and the brown and white one had only one lopped ear (SO CUTE). when i first brought my bunnies home, my boy friend immediately made up names for my buns. emo for the black one and armagendon for the brown and white one. - -" (he still calls them that too). i wanted to give my brown and white bun a sweet name because she is so sweet. she rubs noses with me and when i sit cross legged on the floor, she hops into my lap (when she is not playing catch me under the futon) and basically looks up at me so i can pet her. so i went through many sweet names but nothing really worked. however, at that time i was thinking of a name i had a craving for something called Mochi (ice cream ball coverd in a gummy type dough with powdered sugar around it, yum) and at that same time, she rolled into a ball on my lap. BINGO!!!! Mochi it was. my brother's girlfriend was supposed to name the black one and she wanted to name it something sweet just like mine. she came up with pocky but then thought it was un original and then i mixed mochi with pocky and got pochi (p-ochi). Mochi Pochi. =P very cute huh? well pochi didnt really stick with me nor the bun. however, emo seemed to be taking over. =P all she does is lounge around in her house and look at you.... (not very playful) so now we call her emo. that is how my buns got their names. =P


my name is Carolyn and my precious babies are 2 holland lops named Mochi and Emo and a uhh uhh not sure what he is.... but his name is Moogle

WELCOME xliddobunnyx!     Your bunnies sound adorable!   I think that no matter how anyone got their bunny, a committed loving human who will give them a forever home is to be admired.
