Guinea Pig Names

When you get your new guinea pigs, you’ll need to think about what you are going to call them. With so many names to choose from, this can be a little daunting but we have over 400 good name ideas to help you decide on the best ones that will suit your small pet.

We have included favourite names for boys, girls and pairs as well as popular Disney characters, names that are super cute, and names that are based on the colour of your guinea pig.

But before you start, here are some points to consider when naming your guinea pig:

  • Do you want a name that suits their hair colour?
  • Do you want a name that suits their hair type or breed?
  • Should their name be cute, funny or unique?
  • Do you have a favourite Disney or movie character you could name them?
  • Do you want a very traditional human name (these can be super cute too!)

We’ve created some guinea pig adoption certificates in different designs and colors that you can buy and download to print out at home. You can enter their new name and information on the certificate so you have a record of when you first brought your new guinea pigs home.

If you’ve adopted your guinea pigs, they will already have names. If you don’t like the names they’ve been given it is perfectly ok to rename them to something you prefer.
