Are you in the market for a new bunny rabbit? Have you recently bought a brand new rabbit and have no idea what to name him/her? Well, my friend, you have come to the right place. Because we have compiled a list of 50 rabbit names, some unique and quirky, some classic and elegant, that we know you will love! Surely you will be able to find some inspiration here!
Rabbits are able to learn their own names, so it is crucial that you give them one that they can be proud of! Here are 50 names that we (hop)e you might consider for your new floppy-eared friend!
- Fu Manchu
- Cadbury – Like the chocolate company
- Mary Hoppins – we particularly like this one

There is no baby bunny name rulebook to tell you what is appropriate. This is great, because it gives you loads of scope to choose the best rabbit name for your new friend. So if by chance you don’t like any of the names above, you can always look for inspiration elsewhere in your life. Do you have a favorite celeb, a favorite author, or a favorite movie? It can be fun to name animals after these things.
It is helpful to make lists of different categories of names. For example, you can have names based on food like ‘Cookie’ or ‘Oreo’. You can even make separate lists of candy and treats. Rabbit name lists based on sporting heroes and celebrities are also quite inspiring. If all else fails, maybe you can name the rabbit based on their appearance. Are they white and fluffy? call them snowy! are they brown and cute? call them Cadbury!
Rabbits are often featured in literature. Books such as those by Beatrix Potter and the Watership Down series can help you draw inspiration for your own rabbit’s name. Similarly, you can base your rabbit names on video games (there are a few up above).
