Getting a new guinea pig is very exciting and one of the first things you'll want to do after getting them home is pick a good name that will suit your pet. We have literally hundreds of names for boy and girl guinea pigs as well as names categorised by colour to help you choose!
You can base their name on their colour, fur type or their personality. However, if you have a pair of guinea pigs (which we hope you have as they do need a friend! - check out our adoption page here...) you could choose a famous double-act that you like such as Wallace & Gromit, Laurel & Hardy or even go for popular food pairings such as Fish & Chip, Salt & Vinegar or Chocolate & Mocha!
If you have adopted a guinea pig who has already been named, you might want to give them a new identity. We re-named Mr Jaffas when we adopted him... he was previously called Graham! Whether you're looking for a cute, funny, unusual or unique name for your pet, you will be spoilt for choice with our vast collection on guineapiggles!
