Black Guinea Pig Names

If you have a black or a very dark coloured guinea pig, you may want to name him or her with something that matches the shade of their coat. 

We think we have the best and longest list online for black guinea pigs with over 100 names! But let us know if we've missed any.

There are some very obvious names which are on our list but some more unusual names too including food-based, precious stones, nature, animals and much more.
