How to Select a Name for Your Pet Hedgehog

It’s time to pick out the perfect name for your new pet hedgehog. Gather around the family and get a pen and paper and we’ll guide you through picking the perfect name.

Brainstorm

Write down every cool, funny, or quirky name you can think of. Use our list to inspire you or flip through a baby name book.

Use your new pet as an inspiration. Think of pokey names (like Spike, Prickles, or Blade) or a name that matches the color of your hedgehog (like Snowflake or Cocoa). Observe them and think of names that match their personality (like Flash or Shadow). List all of these names out, no matter how silly or strange.

Narrow Down the Names

Cross out any names you don’t like until you’re left with just the best of the best. Try to narrow it down to under five possible names for your hedgehog.

Pick the Best Name

If your hedgehog is a family pet, gather everyone around and have them suggest their favorite name from their list. Everyone can discuss and debate and then vote on which name is the best. Once you agree, that’s the name of your new pet!

If you’re the only one to decide, keep narrowing your list down until you’ve found the perfect hedgehog name.

Can Hedgehogs Learn Their Names?

While there is some debate in the hedgehog community about the intelligence level of hedgies, most owners find that their hedgehogs can’t learn their names. Instead, hedgehogs learn to recognize their owner’s voices and can be trained to respond to gestures.

If you want your hedgehog to come when you call, train them to respond to a gesture along with their name. Usually a gesture like putting your hand on the floor or tapping is easy for your hedgehog to recognize and respond to.
