Does anyone call their hedgehog by the name that they chose for them originally?

I named my two, Charlotte and Wilbur, after Charlotte's Web. But I stopped calling them by those names long ago.

Now they are Smarties and Dilly Bar. I don't know why/when/how this happened!

I'm sure they don't mind, but I find their new names somewhat amusing :lol:

For a while my name for Wilbur was Mr. Dill Prickle which I think is a fantastic name for a hedgie. But he became Dilly Bar anyway. Oh well :)

Inky goes by Inky, Inky Pie, Stinky Butt, and Mr. Chicken. :lol: The last was coined because of his little chicken legs- he looks like a potato with toothpick legs!

Winston gets called Winnie and Little Huffer. My boyfriend calls him, "Little Winston" in a sing song voice (along with his English accent) and it's hilarious :) Sometimes he mocks my "Little Huffer", but that isn't as funny... ;)

Quigley usually gets called by his name but sometimes we call him Quigles and grumpus. Recently he stayed with his "aunt" and "uncle" and they started calling him Squiggely.

Re: Nicknames
I still call Ender by his name, but I do call him Stinky quite a bit. He's not, but he manages to stink things up a bit.

Billa is known as Hedgie, Hedgums or Mr. Poopyboots. I too stopped calling him Billa unless he is sleeping.
