    I have just reserved a trio of pedigreed American Blues that I will be picking up in the middle of January along with a pedigreed rex buck to go with the rex doe that I have! Soo... I have decided that it is time to register my rabbitry with the ARBA! The only thing is, my rabbitry does not have a name yet... I was wondering if y'all could help me come up with a good name!

    Some facts about me and my rabbits that might help inspire you -

    •My name is Gypsy.

    •I have a double lot yard in town that I am actively making into a backyard homestead and I keep rabbits and chickens, I'm soon to add muscovy ducks and quail.

    •I love mythology from all around the world.

    •I am an avid bookworm.

    • My first rabbit was an American White named Roger that I got for 4H when I was 11 years old (many years ago).

    • My current herd started with a "buck" named Hoss who turned out to actually be a doe. Her name was changed to Hosta. She is a huge broken blue NZ/Flemish Giant, and is the sweetest rabbit on the planet. She thinks she is a dog.

    •Since this is my first herd of colorful rabbits I am becoming facinated with color genetics and the endless color possibilities.

    •I am selecting my rabbits for the ability to finish out well on natural fodder and try to feed them a healthy diverse natural diet.

    Ok guys, any creative rabbitry name suggestions?

    @Baymule ,
    I live near the Finley River. I have several useful native trees on the property - Hawthorn, pawpaw, honey locust, black walnut, and elderberry. I have five varieties of blackberries, and a large Rosa rugosa thicket.

    When I came up with Tale of Tails, it was because I was a fairly active blogger as a homeschooling mom and I believe everyone has a tale to tell. I started another blog solely for my rabbitry—my tails—to share my tale, keep a chronicle of how I went from being a meat breeder to a show breeder, record some my good and bad experiences, help educate about practices to keep rabbits healthy, offer charts and keep some transparency of the well being of my own rabbits, promote Silver Foxes specifically, and add thoughts along that journey. However, it has its downside because is rather common for people to mess up the spelling, especially a show secretary or two (shhh, even me sometimes)!

    Actually, even though it may seem too familiar to you, I really like the unique name of Gypsy. So...hmmm. Sometimes the simplest names are the best like Gypsy's Rabbits or Gypsy Rabbits.

    Or maybe just my initials (GG's) instead of my name?
