Not really. My bf's pet name for me is bun, and I just thought that bunnicula was a funny play on my pet name. The first time that I used bunnicula as a username I got a lot of compliments on it, and that's when I found out about the book (I had never read it). Now that I know the premise of the book, I like the username even more (I usually just go by bunnicula, but I had originally registered with a hotmail address, and I couldn't change it, so I need to re-register as msbunnicula-I hope that's okay). One of these days I am going to have to read the book because it sounds really cute/funny.
