Guinea pig has a name

After a long list of names were discussed, and after a lot of contemplation, I have decided on a name for the guinea pig. His name is Gwydion.

I'm sure Kero would like to read posts from Daisy and Millie, and if today is anything to go by, I'm sure Gwydion would be mor than happy to discuss food with Angel.

What an adorable little guy! We had a guinea pig years ago and every time we would open the fridge....it would know and make that loud squeaking noise they make.

I was wondering how you pronounce that? Gwin'-dee-un? I like it because it is different. Nice! :)

Gwydion... I like those welsh names. :)

I had a guinea pig that squealed when the fridge opened and expected a piece of lettuce and usually got it!

I see Gwydion is a magician, and is the brother of Gilfaethwy and Arianrhod, and the nephew of Math fab Mathonwy.

*giggles*

Thanks! :)

Yeah, they often do things like that. My brother had a guinea pig who would do that whenever the back door was opened... "just in case" LOL!

Rita:
It's pronounced "Gw-id-ee-on". It's an old Welsh name, not very common these days though. Which is one of the things I like about it. I also like where it comes from. Plus it was the name of a boy in a show and book I know from my childhood.

Iggy:
I expect that will be the case with Gwydion. LOL!


Yes, that is correct. Gwydion is also the name of the boy from "The Snow Spider" which I have always loved.

Toasty:
Thanks. :)
