A prickly and snorting pet appeared in the house? Take care of the arrangement of his cage, the presence of feeders, sawdust, a tasty treat. And most importantly - do not forget to choose an original name for the hedgehog.
Don't give your spiny pet a cat or dog name, but rather give it an interesting, extravagant, or just funny name. If by his habits he reminds you of an aristocrat, give him one of the trendy exotic names, for example, Harold, Hercules, Zoey, Oscar, Patrick, Petruchio, Stewart.
Some ordinary male name would be quite appropriate. You can name a hedgehog in a Western manner, say, Alan, Arnie, Gunter, Joe or Joseph, or refer to your favorite Russian names: Bogdan, Boris, Fedor, Gleb, Zhorka.
If you want to get down to business with a bit of humor, name your pet one of the names of famous people in history, for example, Balzac, Irwin, Columbus, Archimedes, Mohammed, Mozart. The names of various characters can also be entered into the category of witty nicknames for the hedgehog: Baloo, Beavis, Zipper, Captain Morgan, Klaus, Nafanya, Iago.
Observe your pet's behavior and activity. Perhaps it is these indicators that will become the basis for choosing a nickname: Acrobat, Khrustyash, Fugitive, Runner, Tramp, Perforator, Grumpy, Zhmurik.
If you find it difficult to dwell on any one name, call the pet a diminutive from the word hedgehog, say, Hedgehog, Yoshka, Yozhenka, Hedgehog (with an emphasis on the first syllable). Or connect your imagination and come up with a name that is consonant with hedgehog whispering, for example, Shusha, Zhuzha, Fufik, Shurik, Pyzhik or just Uf.
But what if your hedgehog is a female? Choose a name based on the steps above: exotic (Deborah, Leela), the name of a famous beauty (Audrey, Marilyn), a historical personality or heroine (Bonnie, Margot), an original female name (Gina, Jenniffer), or any other depending on your fantasy (Blackberry, Fenka, Businka, Fru-Frou, etc.).
There are also universal names that are equally suitable for males and females - Bonya, Buka, Kate, Rocky, Michelle, etc.
