Default One week in & still no name!!!

I've had my little girl (my hedgie, that is) for a week now & for the life of me cannot settle on a name. Previous owner called her "Baby", but I'm not sure I want that name. Anyone have any suggestions?? She's about 3 months old (I've rehomed her) & at this point seems to be more of the shy, leave-me-alone kind of hedgie, but I know it's still early. Some names I've been tossing around are below, but none of them have really grabbed me. Any input on these or any additional suggestions???

Calypso (Greek) = she who hides
Chiquita (Spanish) = little girl <-- (which is what I've sort of been calling her at this point)
Luna (Spanish) = moon
Shyla (Hindi) = daughter of the mountain (she has nothing to do with mountains, but I just like the name)
Koko (Native American) = night
Piglet
Squirt
Cricket
Bashful

I, personally, favor Shyla out of all the ones you provided. Since she's shy and quiet, it seems to just fit her in my mind and it's a very pretty name.

I like Calypso and Cricket best, because I think they are pretty (in Cricket's case it's just too cute) and also feminine.

For a little girl I really like the name Clover. Or Flower (from Bambi), she was pretty shy.
