We mostly cherry-pick names from literature,TV, and movies. Ours are all rescues so some do come with names already--Cosmo and he really fit the name so it stayed and Hopscotch became Mr Hoppes. We also have a Peter, and Bunnicula from "The Celery Stalks at Midnight",Bambi, Hutch which is from Wallace and Grommet's "Curse of the Were-Rabbit. We usually go with our "gut" feeling.

Welcome to the forum!

I'd suggest waiting until you get to know your bunny a bit so the name can suit his/her personality. They really can have such varied personalities.

Do you have any favorite movies or books? You can use character names from those.

Or you could choose names based on a theme:

You could consider plant names like Basil, Pepper, Pumpkin, Rose, Daisy, Ivy.

Food names like Latte, Mocha, Snickers, Peanut, Burrito, Coffee, Popcorn, Cinnamon, Honey.

Or "sky" names like Orion, Pluto, Neptune, Draco, Galaxy, Nebula, Venus, Galaxy.

Or rock names like Quartz, Malachite, Copper, Clay, Diamond, Silver, Marble, Slate, Coal.

Or weather names like Blizzard, Volcano, Storm, Dusty, Sunny, Cloud, Rain, Frost

Or based on color (depending on color of course) like Ginger, Cinnamon, Onyx, Vanilla, Cream, Snow, Midnight, Shadow, Cocoa, Butter, Spot, Speckles.

I had never heard about "The Celery Stalks at Midnight". I just looked it up and it sounds amazing. The subtitle says "beware the hare"! There is even a quote from Neil Gaiman about it : "Bunnicula is the kind of story that does not age, and in all probability, will never die. Or stay dead, anyway..."

I have to buy the whole series, now... Can't believe that was never translated in French, I have to start a campaign to make it happen!
