Is it Fuzzuary already?
February 12, 2013 2:39 AM   Subscribe

Homemade bunny-themed calendar seeks bunny-related alternatives to standard month names. Bunuary and Fuzzuary have already come (and gone), but we've got 10 months to go and more than a few particularly ill-tempered months to rename. Can you help?

April has been declared Hopril and June is tentatively scheduled to be Bune, but March, July, August and the -bers are proving to be more of a challenge. I've been told that Hopril is non-negotiable, but all the rest are open to suggestion. Any general words that also apply to rabbits (like the "fuzz" in Fuzzuary) are also welcome.

To spring off of Mizu, I think October should be Loptober.

These are great suggestions. Loptober is wonderful, I'm thinking we'll probably go with that one for October. Nosevember is also really good. Keep'em coming everybody.

Really annoyed there's nothing I can do with "binky". Or lagomorph.

Nosevember, as suggested up-thread, is a recurring theme at CuteOverload.com, along with Tocktober (tock is short for buttocks).

I'd call March "Hop"

As a reference to the verb "to march"

The two I most need suggestions for now are September and December. If it helps, I like changing the first part of the word and keeping the end the same. I'm not sure it's possible with these two, though, so feel free to mix it up. You folks are the best.

Doecember is no good? Because of Ocdoeber? I might go with Docember and re-up on October. Pawctober!

You could also do Rexember for September.
posted by hannahelastic at 1:32 PM on February 12, 2013


Spotember?

I like Septemb-hare also, as per the -hare suggestions above.

Also, where can I get this calendar, please?
posted by mccn at 1:37 PM on February 12, 2013


Doecember isn't terrible but it's related to breeding, which, for reasons I won't go into at this juncture, isn't what we want to think of when we look at the calendar.

So far the semi-firm list is:

Bunuary
Fuzzuary
Munch
Hopril
Hay
Bune*
Chew-ly
Pawgust
Snifftember**
Loptober (I originally considered Hoptober, which I see was very popular, but didn't want to use hop a second time)
Nosevember
___________

*Bune is one we came up with but I'm not totally satisfied with it because it repeats bun from Bunuary.

**Snifftember is good but I may have to change it because I'm getting some pushback from home about two nose-related months being so close together. :D

(Re: the calendar. We borrowed some bunny pics from the net for home use. I'd hate to distribute it and get in trouble with the folks who own the rights. Maybe I could get some of the artistes around the house to draw some bunnies to go with the months. Who knows?)

Final update: Snifftember was finally approved and December is the only one we're debating from the available suggestions. Thanks everybody, you were fuzztastic. :D

(Note that even though I marked the question resolved and picked best answers, if anybody wants to make another December suggestion, feel free to post or Memail.)
