Rabbit names are an important part of raising bunnies! Focus on a name that fits your rabbit's personality! At least that's what most bunny owners are doing according to a poll conducted by Chewy.com.
"We polled more than 9,000 small animal pet owners, more than 2,000 of which were rabbit owners. The following are the top names for all rabbits. A few extra are in there, as some names were a tie."
Here are their top ten rabbit names and some inspiration for other names too if you don't love what you see on their list!
3. Bun/Bun Bun/Bunn Bunn
4. Coco/Cocoa/Co-Co and Daisy/Daisy Mae/Daisy May (tie)
8. Baby, Bella, Bugs/Bugz/Buggs/Buggz/Bugsy/Bugzy, Marshmallow/Marshmellow and Lillie/Lilly/Lily (tie)

We know that rabbits make great pets but they do require daily monitoring! They also make excellent indoor pets and live longer if kept indoors. They also need regular vet care as they can hide illness well which makes it difficult to determine when they're ill. They are also easy to litter box train!
