I have recently adopted a couple pigs from co-workers and really the names just didn't fit for me.

The first pig was named Cheech, she had a cage mate named Chang but she died, kind of the reason I got Cheech.


Anyway, I am in my 20's and me having a pig named Cheech would kind of make me look like I was a stoner because of Cheech and Chong. So my husband renamed her Miss Piggy.


And my most recent adoption was named Hershey but he is MASSIVE in comparison to my girls so I renamed him Hershey Bear and just call him Bear now.


For more ideas I listed my other pigs names:
Loony Luna Moon Ears (she has white spots on her black ears)
Anna Banana (the vet staff LOVED her name)

My first pigs when I was young were named Cinnamon and Patches.


Hope my names give some inspiration!

*Haha feels stupid now, just read the post above.* =(

I've always been hesitant with changing names, I generally alter the existing name a little bit if its not my preference. I guess i just think of it like if you change a boats name its bad luck and i consider that a little with pets too.
