Studio Bunny Has a Name!

It wasn't easy choosing from Minky, Fleece, Chenille, Barkely, Bilbo, HoneyBunny, Fiver, Alice, Snowy, Casper, Stitch, Stump, Zipper*, Button, Spool, Mr. Silkie, Chester, Dillon, Charlie, Oreo, Winston, Moire, Snuggle, Dusty, Hare E. Potter, Hare E. Etta, Mo Hare, Mr. Palestrina (Pallie), Stitches, Buttons, Snapp!, Marie Antoinette, Marianne, Tonette, Annie, Fluffy, and Fancy!

*I used to have a bunny named Zipper. He was the hare-of-my-heart and he died tragically and at a young age. I couldn't choose that name, as much as I like it, because there will only ever be one Zipper.

The name Mo Hare (think mohair) was entered by a "friend" who suggested that, reminiscent of the Three Stooges, I could start calling myself Curly. I will get even.

One entry included names suggested by the children of the adult entrant. I suspect that these little ones have been watching re-runs of Gunsmoke as two of the names entered were Chester and Dillon!

After carefully considering Studio Bunny's views on life (we have talked for hours), and his love of parties, I have decided, with his agreement, to name him Bilbo. Congratulations to Skye for naming Bilbo Bunny! We haven't decided whether to add Baggins.

Skye, if you will send me your snail mail address I'll get your silk perle on its way to you.

Bilbo and I wish to offer our heartfelt thanks to everyone who participated. Your names were creative and most bunny-like.


  1. Bilbo Bunny is cute. If you get another though - which I think you should, so Bilbo won't be lonesome. Well, I won't tell you what name I think that bunny should have - something that rhythms with Bilbo though.

    I did like Captain and Chenille. I thas two little turtles in college and I named them - Wild and Crazy - hmm - fits two little box turtles don't you think.

  2. Oh - I see Bilbo Baggins is the protagonist of The Hobbit.

    So bunny will be Bilbo Baggins is the protagonist of The Robbit?

  3. Geo, I believe you must already have pet punny. :)

  4. Oh, Zipper. I remember Zipper. Your new bunny is really cute though, and I love the name. Can't wait to meet little know, one of these days, if I ever make it home!

  5. Donna, I created a blog - don't know what I'm doing yet. Check it out. I could use advice.

  6. Hey, what cha up too? I like to view your bloggy friend's blogs - they give my spirit a boost. Are you being creative?
