World, Meet “Cochon.”

Thanks to everyone who submitted name suggestions for our adopted baby boar.

We’ve been overwhelmed, (in a good way), by the amount of feedback received through our Facebook page, email and Twitter accounts. It’s been a wild ride!

As you’ll recall, we adopted our little piglet a few weeks ago when he wondered away from his mother. Since then, we’ve built a very large pig pen out back for him, complete with his own “house,” running room, treats, and belly rubs throughout the day. He’s certainly been a hog for attention!!

The only thing needed to truly welcome this guy was a name of his own; and you all came to the rescue!

Some of the top names sent in were “Wilber,” “Porkchop,” “Cutie Pie,” and “Nola.” We had a team meeting and selected the top two for a run-off:

Nujac” (The word “Cajun” spelled backwards.)

Cochon” (Cajun French for “pig.”) and

In the end, Cajun French won out, for a memorable, fitting title. There were a few variations, but the one word name, “Cochon,” won out over its counterparts.

Pronounced “kosh-on,” the moniker was suggested by two of our Facebook fans. Each will be contacted shortly to receive their thank you gift of a FREE tour for two!!

Stay tuned for more pictures, news, and holiday fun from the team here at Cajun Encounters. Make sure to pay a visit, and meet our handsome new family member in his new home!
