her name is...


Just, Pig.

And Kathleen, you are the winner for offering that suggestion first and simplest. Though I did love (and consider) Hazel, Petunia, Natalie Porkman, Portia, and Sue). Email me Kathleen so I can send you a signed copy of Chick Days! And thank you to all who entered!

Congrats Kathleen! Pig's a good name for a pig. One day, when I get a dog, it's name is probably going to be Pup.

Love it! Our parakeet's name was "Bird". We called him Birdo, though.

Congrats, Kathleen! Greta name. I always called ours Porkchop and Bacon and Ribs. Now I have to think up a new name for the new pig. It might just be The New Pig.

Hehe, that's totally unfair because you were already calling her "Pig"


Congrats on winning Kathleen!

We used to have a mouse named Mouse-Mouse! And the rabbit is Bunny Foo-Foo.

Oh, wow! That is such a great name - it is so original! It's almost like you didn't even need to have 200+ people trying to come up with a proper name to give her the respect she deserves...

lol, good name, I just had a name pop into my head after thinking about it for a few days, but I see I'm too late. I would have suggested "Serendipity"

I think it's never a good idea to name your food, but Pig certainly works, as it's a description as much as a name!

Truthfully I have no problem naming my food-destined animals.
It helps you to keep in mind that they're living things too (like any of us really haven't thought of them that way anyhow).

As long as you remember that they ARE for consumption at some time in their life, I've never had any problems with it.
