Choosing a name for your future pet guinea pig can be the hardest thing. A simple word that will stay with them for the rest of their lives and will be constantly used when talking to friends and family about them.

Guinea pig names not only need to be unique and meaningful but also should fit their character, gender and appearance.

Whether you opt for a funny, cute, or badass name, it should be something that you can connect with exciting and beautiful memories.

Below we have complied a list of over 450 guinea pig names for girls, boys and even pairs that can have black, white or brown fur. Some really popular option including giving your pet a food or movie inspired name.

When going through all these options, take notes of the ones you like most and carry them with you for a few days. Do they sound natural, do they remind you of something positive and can you imagine giving them to a sweet loving furball for the rest of their lives?

Female Guinea Pig Names

When thinking about a name for your girl guinea pig, imagine her temperament. Is it sassy, cute or dreamy? Especially food inspired names fit females so well and can be matched with their fur color.

A white, adorable guinea pig could be called Coco or Cotton while a brown one could be named Hazel or Caramel. Did you know that females are also called sows?

Guinea Pig Names for Pairs

Guinea pigs are extremely social little creatures that love having company. In the wild, they can live in groups of up to 10 guinea pigs.

It’s best to get cavies of the same sex. So girls with girls and boys with boys are perfect especially if they are siblings.

This part actually made me the most fun to put together. There are endless possibilities when it comes to finding a name for your guinea pig pair.

You can collect lots of more options by thinking about your favorite tv shows, meals, or colors. Books and games are filled with unique characters that might be fitting for your pair.

Badass Guinea Pig Names

Guinea pigs can definitely be badass and so can their name.

Doesn’t matter if you choose a female or male guinea pig, a cool and badass name is timeless and more unique compared to most pet owners that rather choose a cute name that screams “fluffy” for their guinea pigs.

My personal favourites from this list are Jaws and Rambo as they are just so fitting.

Black Guinea Pig Names

Smooth, shiny and dark fur definitely looks mesmerising. Not only is it so pure and reminds you off the night sky but it’s also the perfect color for name ideas.

They can be mysterious, beautiful, cute, or serious, whatever comes to your mind. I sought inspiration mostly from nature, stones, and the sky.

White Guinea Pig Names

White or albino guinea pigs carry the colors of the snow, clouds, and cotton. Whether you have a completely white, white patched, or cream-colored guinea pig, all of these names will work and live up to this gorgeous fur.

Brown Guinea Pig Names

Even if your guinea pig only has small brown patches on his body, take the chance and give him a sweet color specific name. There are a lot of deserts and beverages in different brown tones and shades.

You can really make a deep dive and match your pet’s fur tone with a similarly colored object. If you have a Teddy guinea pig why not actually call him Teddy to also incorporate his breed.

Movie/TV Inspired Guinea Pig Names

There are thousands of movies and TV shows that include even more actors, stars, or animated figures. I have already mentioned some iconic TV pairs above but there are many more that would exceed any list.

If you want to get more than two guinea pigs, you can even call them after the whole cast of your favorite show. But also games created popular characters that might fit your future pet.

Food Inspired Guinea Pig Names

The majority of a guinea pig’s day is spent eating or looking for food. So choosing a food related name isn’t that far fetched.

You can even opt for food that your guinea pig is eating on a regular basis like basil or rocket. Human food or even beverages make for incredibly cute names such as Peanut, Maple, or Nugget.
