Hope Apple Blossom


Mia Snuffles; Lily Bubbles; Poppy Pig; Tom Rocket; Jack Wigglinson; Lucas Scamp


Thank you so much to all the entrants. We really enjoyed reading all your suggested names!

They were so good we’ve named them twice! (We have decided to give each piggy a first and surname.) We decided on a theme of giving the piglets a first name that is in the top 20 for most popular names in the UK so that as many people as possible connect with the names (and hopefully the piglets) and giving second names that are more descriptive and well, piggy!

The winner for each name will receive one of the fabulous piggy hampers. Where lots of you suggested the same name, we have picked one winner from a hat – all the runners-up will be getting a small piggy gift on the way to them too! 

Please share - and shout out that you are a winner!

If you want to adopt the pig you have named – this will be available soon and we will email you with a link.
