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.

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.

i hardly ever call any of my pets by their real names, Turbo has only been called Turbo about twice in the week and a half weve had him.

He gets called cute stuff, short stack, lil one, cutie pie, mr poopy, poopy feet, little menace, naughty little boy, my baby, the list is endless, anything but his real name basically ha.

I still call Turbo by his name, but for some reason I started calling him Booger too. Not sure why. My fiance likes to call him Turdo or the Turdmaster since he poops so much. *shrug* oh well :)

Finally getting around to posting :)

Of our six past and present hedgies, most nicknames have been versions of their names, with one exception. Ruby, our albino, was a very determined girl and would go charging around the apartment expecting everything and everyone to move out of her way :lol: . So Ruby became Rubysaurus Regina (Regina being the feminine of Rex), which was then shortened to Saurus.
