Name This Pig!

Name This Pig!

Tags: Lucy Pig, Pigs, Babe, Wilbur, Charlotte's Web, Factory Farming

One of the saddest things about animal suffering is that all of the animals are completely voiceless they don't vote, they can't speak our language and as such they cannot object to society's cruel treatment. But that's all about to change...

Animals Australia and Unleashed are about to embark on our biggest factory farming campaign ever an Australian first and we need your help to name the cute little pig who will be the face of this campaign. Everyone knows the cute little pig from the movie Babe, and Wilbur from Charlotte's Web. Well this pig is going to be next in line of pig fame. Though not a movie star, the work she'll be doing is so much more awesome she'll literally be changing the lives of her brothers and sisters who are stuck on factory farms.

So get those neurons working and let's rename this Jane Doe to be the best ambassador for the biggest anti-factory farming campaign Australia has ever seen. This larger than life costume pig could have your name all over it, and when you see her at supermarkets or in the street (very very soon), you can tell your friends "I named that pig." What's even cooler is that she is the only one that exists in Australia (and the world) who is being made specifically to combat factory farming!

Comment your suggestions below. The winner will receive:
1) A free hug from this one of a kind pig
2) Kudos from Unleashed
3) Envy from all other Unleashed members


(The above illustration is our artist's impression, the "real" pig
will be much more awesome and cute!)


--

UPDATE! It's official! "Lucy" has just made her debut and is presently on the campaign trail to end factory farming! Thanks for all the GREAT name suggestions everyone!!

How cute!

How about Patricia the Pig. Patricia means "little noble woman" in latin happy

'Felicity'.. happy

It's of latin origin and means 'happiness' or 'good fortune'

so basically, lucky happy

And why wouldn't she be lucky, she's going to be the pig representing animals australia in the biggest Australian fight against factory farming!

'Azime', It means 'determined'. As she would be..freeing her brothers and sisters. Just as we all are.

'Nadina' Is german..and it means 'courageous'. Sticking up for all of the factory farmed animals in australia you'd have to have some guts on you. happy

And my last suggestion..
'Aviva'..It means 'innocent' Because she, just as all the other abused animals in Australia, Is innocent..yet they all get punished for nothing..

What about,

Liberty


it means:
1. freedom from arbitrary or despotic government or control.
2. freedom from external or foreign rule; independence.
3. freedom from control, interference, obligation, restriction, hampering conditions, etc.; power or right of doing, thinking, speaking, etc., according to choice.

I think her name should be Heidi!
The name Heidi is of German origin meaning noble, serene, kind and one of exalted nature. I think this cute little piggy suits this name and the meaning.

Zircon
It's kind of unusual, but here's why:
It's a gemstone of the element fire (air, earth, fire, water). The element fire is associated with the ability to take positive action toward a desired goal, passion for freedom, confidence, drive.
More specifically, Zircon brings energy into a sharp focus, it helps uncover lies and deception.
I don't know, it's kind of a strange name.

I reckon' 'Page'.
Everyone could take a "page" out of the innocent, loving demeanour of this little pig. (:
I'm fairly sure it also means 'attendant', and is this little piggy not attending to the issue of factory farming? (:

Whynston!
No famous pig that is destined to be famous should ever be named anything but Whynston.
It's a strong name that can be echoed from the voices of the broken.
It doesn't have some secret logic to its pronunciation, like other names might have.
It is known for what it is. Like everything we see and feel.
But,
The curious concept about this name will be, that because of one animal and a whole lot of people who care, this name will be made into something more.
And be remembered for something great.

I thought about it so much, but the only name that kept coming back to me was Patience

'Patience the Pig happy"

i think patience is appropriate because think of everything these animals have been to it might not be the right word to explain it but they have been "Patient"

so my suggestion is "Patience The Pig happy"

Trumble. Means strong and powerful.I  reckon it's cute. and it suits. Trumble the pig happy  

or

Ruth means compassionate and beautiful. That suits, compassion is of , if not the main reasons behind these campaigns.  Ruth or Ruthie the pig.

But if we're looking for something which starts with P, Philena the Pig. Philena means lover of mankind.  All the pigs I've met have been so loving towards humans, so it's suits. happy

Hmm just a few names to throw into the hat happy

Sasha seems to suite a pig. How about brooke? These names don't mean purity or anything, but we all know how pure and intelligent our pigs are, so how bout a name that just fits this little piglet to a 'T'.
Sweety (pork chop lol)
Purity, Constance, Hope, Love, Chastity, Helen (as in the face that launched a thousand ships) or Aphrodite?
Ella, Sooty, Briella, diamonds (because they are a girls best friend) of greta?
Boys names: Silas, Seth, Serius, Stan or brian? Any one will do. peace_out

"Pink"
I think that Pink would endorse that name as she would never eat an animal. Who knows, you could even get her to help out with the campaign. Why not coinsider it with her concert tour of Australia. Now that would get media attention for the campaign.
On the other hand why not get any vegetarian celebrity to kick off the campaign and name the "pig after them??
We need the media attention to make this really siccessful
