Unintentionally, I've started calling some bunnies by different names. For example, I had a German Angora rabbit I named Fritz. I think I was trying to remember the German word my grandmother used for boy, when it hit me: bub (pronounced by my grandmother as: boobp). Then I started doing squeaky, cutesy bunny voices to him and called him my little bub (boobp). He, for some reason, seemed to really react positively to it and he became: "My Boopy" or just "Boopy".

A different bunny, a big Enlish Lop, named Butterscotch (not the Butterscotch we presently have) became ButterBumble, BumbleHead and sometimes just Butter. It's silly.
|A certain Little White Bunny at age 8 or 9|
One bunny, an albino dwarf, was a sweet frisky little guy who lived a very long life and only recently just passed away. He was a bunny we could not think of a name for. For the life of us, we tried and tried. Nothing seemed fitting. So for several weeks we discussed him descriptively. He was "The Little White Bunny". Not sure why, with so many good names out there, we couldn't think of any. He just decided to take the name "Little White Bunny" because that's what we always called him when talking about him, caring for him, feeding or petting him. That's what he became because he just started responding to it. It just became too late for any other name. We started calling him LWB in conversation because we felt a bit embarrassed over that name. But for 11 years, he chose Little White Bunny and always, always answered to it!
We do have other bunny nicknames, but I think those will keep for another day. Please share what your bunny's nicknames are or any great stories! Please share in the comments below!
