We're re-watching all seven series of Buffy the Vampire Slayer through from the beginning to the end. It was a brilliant show and well worth seeing again. Anya, the former demon, is scared of rabbits and this is carried through all the series from her early appearance dressed as a bunny for a Hallowe'en party. When we rescued our rabbit (seen above posing in front of our Buffy collection) from the SSPCA animal welfare centre, we had already decided to call her Anya in honour of Anya from Buffy. When she was naughty (which wasn't often, she was an adorable lovable bunny), we called her Anyanka, which was Anya's demonic name in Buffy.
If we had had a male bunny we thought of calling it Bishop Brennan after the character in Father Ted, who was scared of rabbits. Well it seemed to us as good a way as any of choosing a name for a pet. I'm glad we got a girl rabbit though.
(Anya sadly died earlier this year)
