She is a cute piggy.
Why one though? Pigs are social and do better in pairs.

My sister regretted getting one, and we are going to get another one tomorrow.
And i'm not sure about the name, lol. My grannie thought of it, she also thought of Bucko.

You also probably need a bigger cage -- minimum recommendation is 7.5 square feet for two piggies, and they can be prone to fighting when they're not given enough space.

Making would be a LOT cheaper. Cubes and coroplast work, or cubes and whatever solid material you can come up with. And if she'd skilled in wood working she could make her own using wooden structure and 1/2" squared fencing.

To the best of my knowledge, there is only one pet store cage on the market that meets the minimum, and it's the Midwest Guinea Pig Habitat. I've never actually seen it in a store, though, everybody I know that has one has ordered it online.

Ah yes Wal Mart or Target sells the cubes. I recomend staying with Walmart because target changed theres and now the squares are too big. the piggy will escape. We made a nice one for our bun bun, I do recoment the coraplast tray though we use carpet squares and thats nice but it does not stop the dropping from beign pushed out. O ya congrats on the nice looking pigglet.
