These names will work for both boys and girls, and some of them can be considered unisex.

Funny Food Squirrel Names

Wild squirrels are foragers and opportunistic feeders. Just because your squirrel is no longer living in the wild, doesn’t mean that he won’t still love eating. The foraging behavior is a part of their DNA. It’s not unusual to see a video of a pet squirrel stashing or eating human foods of all kinds.

That’s why I think some of these funny food names would work perfectly for your furry pet. These names can be used as a name or as a nickname.

While I don’t advocate having a pet squirrel, I know how popular they are and how many people want one. Before getting one, it’s important to check the rules and regulations in your state. If you do decide to get one, good luck with giving it a name and hopefully, this list helps get more creative ideas flowing.
