Name That Rabbit!

So, my classroom now has a class pet. It is a dwarf rabbit, a bit over a year old, and is very sweet and cuddly! My district has a science learning center that has many animals to loan to classrooms--snakes, mice, rats, gerbils, guinea pigs (my mentee teacher got one of these for her room), tarantulas, hedge hogs, ferrets, etc. These are all animals that were once pets and are no more for whatever reason.
This cute little rabbit was in a kindergarten room last year, so it very gentle and used to kids. My kids are middle-schoolers but are severely cognitively impaired. I plan to use the rabbit in a calming therapeutic way for my students when they need it, as well as help them take part in a feeding and cleaning routine. I hope it works out well!
My plea to anyone reading this is name suggestions! What would you call the little girl?

Cherish would be a cute name.

Based on her colouring, I would call her Nutmeg!

That is a very cute bunny, and knowing how kindergarten age kids can be- since I have one at home- I am sure that bunny is used to all kinds of handling! I bet your students will really enjoy having a pet.
