Default Hedgehog Nicknames~

My boyfriend and I named his Hedgehog Mr. Needlemouse since Sonic was overused and we wanted something unique, so Sonic's original name was perfect. Anyway, this is a topic about Hedgehog nicknames if you give your Hedgehog any nicknames and if there is a reason behind the nickname, I would like to know as well.

Our Hedgehog's nicknames are:
- Poopyfeet
- Grumpy
- Needles

Reason for Poopyfeet was actually from my boyfriend after Needles went on his wheel for the first time when we got him and we saw his feet were full of poop.

Reason for Grumpy was because his grumpy face is really silly, and one day I accidently woke him up and he wasn't happy with me at all.

Reason for Needles was because it's shorter then Mr. Needlemouse.
*Needles huffing and puffing* Me: Ow, Needles you prick!

Link's nickname is Mr. Grump-a-butt. He is always huffing until he gets settled lol
Oh, and Stinky Link. I think it's obvious why.

Navi is mostly just Bits or Little Bit. He is so tiny, I can't get over it lol.

We called our hedgehog Preson ( the daper boy he is) but some how over the weeks i ended up calling him Presto for really no reason, his other nickname is Sir Sass's a lot.

One of Zannah's nicknames is Smidgen. This is because she was a rescue and they were calling her that before she came to me because she was so little. She's hardly a Smidgen anymore (she's probably right around average now, I would say) but it's still cute, although I haven't been using it as much now that she's grown so much.
The other night I was calling her something that seemed really cute and fit her a lot but I can't remember for the life of me what it was. It's been driving me crazy.
Other than that I just call her sweetie, missy, honey, love, and baby girl (or baby) a lot.

Anubis' nickname is "Newbie" - because it's cute and gives her an -ie name to match Zombie, who she's bonded with.

Vendetta's nickname is "Dodo Bird". Because she's tweety, and because Nick is weird. XD

Pseudonym is called "Nym", which also became "Nymph" because she's so petite.

Cerberus is "Kerby" - Nick is responsible for that one, too.

Serenity is "Wren".

Delilah is "Bean" from "Vanilla Bean" because she's an albino.

Archimedes is "Ares", which is just his secondary name - not really a nickname, it's just that both of them are his name, if that makes any sense.

Litchi was nicknamed "Madame Squee" (Mrs Squee) or "P'tite Squee" (Lill' Squee). Squee was just a word that looked right for somthing cute.

Buffy gets called Grumpus, Brat, Prickly-Pear and Buffster on a regular basis. My mom calls her Bonny because she gets the two names mixed up
