There are a few animals that children will at some point beg their parents to adopt, and rabbits are definitely one of them. They’re the perfect size for cuddling, and they’re incredibly soft, and, of course, insanely adorable. Their cute faces and relative ease of care make them a popular pet for both children and adults alike.
If you’re thinking of adopting a bunny (or already have), and you’re looking for a cute name, you’ve come to the right place. We’ve come up with some of the most adorable names and separated them by theme so that you can find exactly what you’re looking for.
Adorable Rabbit Names Based on Food
I’m not sure that anyone can explain why humans find food names to be cute, but we do. Food names are often used affectionately between lovers, as well as from parent to child, with honey and pumpkin being some of the most common (in France, they like to say “my little cabbage”).
Clearly, we think food names are cute and also enjoy using them to refer to beings that we find precious. Therefore, why not give your bunny an adorable food name to express your affection?

The Basics of Bunny Care
If you’ve had bunnies before, then you might already know exactly how to care for them. If not, you’ll definitely want to do a bit of research to be sure you’re providing your bunny with a safe, healthy, and stimulating lifestyle. We’ll help you get started by briefly touching on some of the basics of bunny care.
First of all, you’ll need a cage and a bunny-proofed room. Rabbits should not live in outdoor hutches because they are prey animals and can actually die from fear! Extreme fear can cause heart attacks that lead to death.
Your bunny should be let out of the cage daily to roam around and get exercise. It’s important to remove or block electrical cords or anything else you don’t want your bunny nibbling on because they love to chew.
Many people love the idea of getting a rabbit so they can pick it up and hold it in their arms. However, bunnies don’t typically like being held. If you do need to pick your rabbit up, it is important to provide proper support. You should have one hand holding the chest area and the other supporting the rump.
This will help your rabbit feel more secure. Because rabbits have light skeletons compared to their body mass, their bones can fracture more easily. If a rabbit struggles and jumps out of your arms, it’s possible that it will break something.
Rabbits may not like being held or carried around, but they are social animals. If you interact with your bunny regularly and form a bond, she may just jump into your lap. It’s perfectly fine to cuddle with your bunny on the floor, and it is a much safer option.
The majority of a rabbit’s diet should consist of hay. They are vegetarians and can also have some fresh vegetables and even fruits. However, these should be given in moderation as the hay will make up the bulk of their feed, and they should have hay available to them 24/7.
They should also have access to fresh water 24/7, either in a dish or a sipper bottle. Avoid giving rabbits foods like seeds, nuts, grains, or bread.
It’s important that you handle your rabbit often so that she will be comfortable with grooming. Rabbits have nails that need to be trimmed regularly. It’s also good to brush your rabbit weekly to help remove shedding hair.
You should check their bottoms daily for poop as it can sometimes get stuck. If it isn’t removed, it can form into large chunks on the rear end that are tough to get off. Keeping the cage and litterbox clean will also help prevent this.
Adorable Names for Adorable Bunnies
Rabbits are adorable so it makes sense to want to choose an equally cute name for them. Luckily, there are tons of cute name options available. Food names are basically a go-to when looking for something cutesy, and flower-inspired names are both pretty and precious.
Of course, you can always choose a cute male or female human name, or go for something punny. The sky is the limit when it comes to naming pets, bunnies included!
