I was always told (in the horse world) that re naming a horse is bad luck.
That's carried over to my gliders, and other pets.
Abigial will always be abigail.
For one, I grew up watching an animated movie about animals, and the main character was a squirrel/ mousey type critter named abigail. And she fits the characters persona to a T.
And for another. I feel like if valkeriemome ever wants to look us or her back up here on GC it'll be easier for her to follow
Just my two cents
+ I am a little kooky anyway
