A Scots rabbit lover has proved she really is hopping mad - after changing her name to Bunny.
Sharon Finegan, 28, from Stenhousemuir, Falkirk, has become Bunny Sharon Alice Finegan, after dreaming up the hare-brained idea while taking care of her 15 rabbits.
The animal enthusiast was originally given the 'pet name' by her fiance Morgan Green, 36, who helps her run a rabbit sanctuary from their home.
The bingo hall worker already uses Bunny in Scotland, where laws allow anyone to change their name without the need for deed poll.
But she will officially undergo the change in the rest of the UK when the pair tie the knot at a ceremony in Grangemouth on September 1.
Sharon said: "I am really looking forward to saying 'I Bunny Sharon Alice Finegan' in my vows on my wedding day.
"It should be a lot of fun and it seems the right thing to do as my friends have called me Bunny for a long time.
"The idea came around when we were feeding the rabbits. Morgan suggested as a joke that I should change my name to Bunny as that is his pet name for me and I thought it would be a good idea to do it properly.
"I love animals but rabbits have always been my very favourite pet so the name Bunny suits me through and through."
