Tips for Naming Your Hedgehog

If you think about it, coming up with a name for your hedgehog can be simple. What does it look like or act like when it's in its cage, in your opinion? If it doesn't work, consider a favorite actor or character from popular culture and expand from there. Hedgehogs have a short lifespan of three to five years. So, if the name you pick is popular right now, it should be appropriate throughout the rest of your pet's life.
