Name That Piig!


Piig really needs a name

The new piig is having a real identity crisis! I have put all the name suggestions–and there are a lot of them!–in a poll on the right side bar.


Piig and friends

Pig even had some friends over and couldn’t introduce himself! He was so ashamed he tried to hide under one of his guests.

Please vote using the poll in the right side bar!

    Holy MOLY that’s a lot of names!! Have you consulted with Piig? Does he have a preference?

  • Chanda Bellick

    He is the cutiest piggy I have ever seen ๐Ÿ™‚

  • Aliza

    Thats so crazy! I told you guys about how Piig looks like my Munkey — but not that my other guinea pig is Rolo!!! And its on the list!! Sweet! Regardless of the result whatever name she’s given she wont lose any of that ADORABLENESS ๐Ÿ™‚

  • Marty

    Looks like an Oreo to me

  • Sara Beth

    I took one look at him when you first posted the photo and he just looks like a Walter, so I’m glad Wally is one of the choices. Also like Winston a lot. They are all cute names though!! … and a lot of choices!

  • jen

    #42 Mortimer!

  • He looks like a Graham. Yes, definitely ๐Ÿ™‚

  • Steve Hart

    I think his name should be Lilliput with Gari as Gulliver. ๐Ÿ˜‰

  • Ginger

    Albert Swinestein goes along with the rest of the menagerie I believe

  • Laurie Coppola

    Made my selections, though it was not easy to only choose three!!!

  • Vickie

    Wonder why my suggestion didn’t make the list?

  • Oh my goodness, so many names to choose from!

  • Nic

    Did u get the bumblebee name from transformers? Cause he looks as cute as Bumblebee.

  • Honeybell


  • mischievous Capybara

    Great Butt….GB for short

  • Rat

    Oh, Humbug, definitely!

  • Ashley

    I like Wilson :)I had a pig that looked just like him and his name was Mr. Blue ๐Ÿ™‚ when we rescued him he came with the name, but I loved it ๐Ÿ™‚

  • Ann M. Bednarek

    Melly, This little guy is absolutely precious!!! We can only suggest names for him. Since you get to see his cuteness daily and know his personality I am sure you will choose the best name from the list. If you have a hard time choosing, why not let him choose. Pick all the names you like best that suits him and write them on individual little pices of paper, then surround him with the names and let him walk to the piece of paper with the name on it and there you have it…..a name he chose. LOL Just another crazy idea. XOXOXO Ann from Buffalo Give Gari a hug and kiss!!!

  • Katie S

    ZOMG! Albert Swinestein is so great–if I ever have a boy pig again that’s what I’ll name him…then again I think Rosettes are a must for and Albert Swinestein…maybe you should call him Pig-cola Tesla, Fritz Zwicky, Carl Pig-an, Pierre Squeek-ie, Richard Feynman…etc.

  • Robin

    I like Jeffrey because that’s my husband’s name. So, I’m partial to that. No, he would not mind having a guinea pig after him – in fact, I think he would be honored. Winston is a very nice name, elegant and sophisticated. And Marble is just really cute. I look forward to knowing what it is. ๐Ÿ™‚

  • Nina

    I like Albert Swinestein! Then in the very British way, you could call him Bertie!

  • Flora

    He looks like quite the distinguished gentlepeeg! Sir Albert Swinestein!

  • Matt

    Winston! ๐Ÿ˜€

  • Kelly

    Someone else mentioned Oreo. I think he looks like an Oreo!
