The Ultimate List of Silly Guinea Pig Names

Good day to you, silly guinea pig owners! I certainly hope that’s you, because if it’s not, you’re about to be very confused.

Today’s topic, both grandiose and trivial, delightfully low-stakes globally, yet hugely consequential within your personal life and social circles:


Guinea pigs are arguably one of the silly pets to own. They’re food obsessed, a little ditsy, have funny hair, and still garner our undying love.

With the loftiness of today’s blog, I’d like to state now, that this list is going to be ever growing and evolving. Please add your own names to the comments, and they’ll be added to the body of the blog periodically.

In the meantime, here are a few names to get you started:

Today’s celebrity honorable mentions go to: Will Ferret and Scarlett Johampster.

Always ripe with comedic effect, let's look at some animal names that present a contrast with our cute little cavvies (or just make no sense at all):

Our guinea pig’s name is S’more because he’s white and black, like the chocolate and marshmallow filling in the namesake campfire snack <3


Borrowed these Alien ideas from a British TV documentary about a veterinary surgery: Pigley Scott and Pigourney Weaver.


used to have a guinea pig named Poivron, which means Bell Pepper in french. Her sister Cupcake who is still with us, misses her a great deal. Cupcake is a real wild piggy. One time a fighter flew over our house in the forest and she got really scared, so scared that she jumped the fence of the old Pig Parc and ran away into the forest for 2 weeks until our neighbor caught her trying to eat her cucumbers in her garden. 🤣🤣🤣

We have a Honey Chestnut (the baby of the bunch)
Bella (oldest)
Minnie Mouse Mountain Goat. (Middle)
We formerly had a Mr.Nibbles … but she was a Girl. She passed last year after 9 years. I miss her.

My boys are Angus, Gerald, Tìmido (Spanish for Bashful) and Vinny. Angus was adopted as Buddy and got a name change before we even got home. Tìmido was named Chancho which is a derogatory name for a human pig. Bashful suits him much better. Of course they all have nicknames too (Laddy, Fuzz butt, Tìmi and Vin-Vin/Vincent.
