Default Nicknames

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

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. 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.

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.
