Seriously considering Marley! ThanksI also have a hard time naming them. I have a new buck that is still called "New Guy" . . . I had a litter for sale that were of age at Christmas, so they all had Christmas names "Sparkle, Tinsel, Cocoa, Nutmeg, Eggnog, Marley, Tiny Tim"
I wanted to keep 2 does (well, 3, but one turned out to be a buck LOL) and they were named "Paisley" and "Nutmeg" but I didn't like "Nutmeg" and since she has a white spot on her forehead that is shaped exactly like an arrow, her name is now "Pocahontas" ... not the best name, but I couldn't think of any other 'Indian / Native American" name.
Then I realized that they are both "P" names, and maybe it would be a good idea to pick a letter and name all the rabbits from that litter with the same initial letter so I could more easily keep track of which ones were the same age. All the ones with the same letter are the same year. This would work for 26 years LOL
Good luck with the names, and keep us posted.
I will definitely keep this in mind when I start breeding!To start out with, we named each kit in a litter alphabetically, as in A, B, C, D, E, and F. When we decided to keep one, we chose a name based on the letter she received as a kit. Our original breeders also came with names, which we kept in honor of where they came from. We tend to name any kits that we think we might keep with something generic so that it is easier to talk about them. If we decide to keep them then we work out a name that reflects their personality and something about the nickname they had before. Our breeders now are named:
Sand (in your eye)
Allegory (of the cave)
We have two bucks that we aren't sure if they will be keepers or meat, so for now they are named Black Boi and Brown Boi. If we end up keeping either of them then they will probably get upgraded names.
I don't know how people have like 50 rabbits. It just doesn't sound fun at all. And all of them are named after their ear numbers or stuff like that
Thank you for that list! And holy!! How much time did you have to spend cleaning?Here is a big list I found a while back! Looks like the names of all the rabbits they've had at their rabbitry. Förslag på djurnamn - Teddytassens Kaningård
We name ours on a theme. A litter of 7 was named for each day of the week. A litter of 9 were the planets (+ Pluto). Other litters were characters from movies, baseball teams, pastries, etc.
We peaked at 52 rabbits all at once last summer and I named every single one of them. It helps that no one else knew their names so believed me no matter if I grabbed the correct rabbit or not LOL. The litter named the days of the week were all black and looked identical without intense scrutiny. I just would pick one up and introduce it as whatever day it happened to be
Thank you for that list!
How much time did you have to spend cleaning?
I’m thinking Lulu, Lily, Maggie…
