130+ Cute Bunny Names That Are Completely Ear-resistible

Adopting a rabbit? These adorable, clever and funny bunny names will have you and your favorite fluffball hopping with joy!

Some companion animals have special skills: Cats hunt mice and deter pests, dogs can help you feel safe in your home, and fish, well … we guess they’re decorative? But some pets bring joy and happiness into your life simply because they’re adorable. We’re talking about the fluffiest, floppiest, whiskery-est, most nose-wiggling hop-along cuties it’s possible to share a home with: bunnies! And the only thing sweeter than having a bunny as a pet? Giving your cute bunny one of the cutest bunny names!

When it comes to names for rabbits, the best names that come to many people’s minds are the classics: Peter, Bugs and Bunnicula. We grew up with these famous fluffballs, so those names have a special place in our hearts and minds. But they’re not the only types of names out there: Just like with hamster names, you can choose something super sweet, and as with fish names, bird names and any other pet names, you can also go for the pun and a serious dose of irony. Trust us—your bunny won’t mind as long as you give it loads of attention and snuggles!

What should you consider when naming a bunny?

The name you give your bunny will be the first thing that forges a connection between you and your pet. Can rabbits learn their names and really bond with you? Yes! “Rabbits are intelligent creatures that can be trained to respond to their names, use litter boxes and even perform tricks,” says veterinary surgeon Kathryn Rosalie Dench, BVMS, who works with small animals, exotic pets and dogs. “They are also highly social and thrive in the company of their human companions. Spending quality time with your rabbit, such as gently petting them or engaging them in interactive play sessions, can greatly enrich their lives and strengthen the bond between you.”

That, of course, makes choosing the perfect bunny name even more important, right? Sort of. Dr. Dench notes that what you name your rabbit doesn’t matter as much as how you care for them. “I encourage you to create a safe and stimulating environment for your rabbit, providing them with plenty of space to hop, explore and engage in natural behaviors,” she says. “Regular veterinary checkups, a proper diet and mental stimulation are also crucial for their overall well-being.”

With that in mind, here are the best bunny names to choose from for your silly, social, super-sweet rabbit. Enjoy the cute bunny pictures while you’re at it!
