Our Favorite Southern Pig Names
Need a name for your piglet? Here are a few of our favorites.
Southerners love pigs. And we show our affection in different ways. We frequent our neighborhood Piggly Wiggly, read Charlotte’s Web to our kids, or adopt and bring them into our families.
Although not as common as cats or dogs, pet pigs are not completely unheard of across the South. While most pig owners opt for the smaller breeds (Teacup Pigs, Micro Pigs, Pocket Pigs), some homes end up with larger pigs. That’s the thing with pigs, you never really know how big they will actually get. So before you rush out to your local pet shop and purchase a little pig that fits in the palm of your hand, remember that the cute piggy can get pretty big.
But if you’re prepared to bring one home, then you're going to need a fantastic name for your pink pet. And there’s nothing funnier than the idea of a mud-covered and pleasantly plump pig with a fancy name, such as Princess or Charlotte. That is, unless you would prefer a wimpy name. There are plenty of pig puns, historical references, and even famous pigs from literature that provide plenty of inspiring ideas for naming your pet. Here are some of our favorites.
