First thing to consider is a Guinea pig does not have the ability to recognise its own name, unlike cats and dogs do. Nevertheless, a simple name of 1 to 3 syllables is the most practical and the name should suit the Guinea pigs personality and/or their physical colouring. Here are the most popular pet names of 2021

It is important to note that Guinea pigs have created their own language through sounds and body movements, and it is worth learning their vocalisations in order to better understand them. Understanding your pet guinea pig-a guide to behavioral patterns

Also, Guinea pigs have some particular habits and traits, so you might want to base their name on one of those. For instance, they like to hop repeatedly when happy and excited, so Tigger or Kanger can be an apt and fun name.

And when you name the Guinea pig, make sure  it is a joint family decision, as they are social creatures and benefit from interaction with all members of the family.
