Piglin Beast Naming refers to a community vote held by game developer Mojang for an official name for Piglin Beast, a new Minecraft pig mob. In the days following the vote announcement, multiple submissions referencing offensive and vulgar words, such as "Pigger" and "Brap Hog," were submitted, with voting raids organized by users on iFunny and 4chan. On October 19th, 2019, Mojang[14] announced that the beast will be named Hoglin.


On September 28th, 2019, Minecraft developer Mojang announced the upcoming addition of Piglin Beasts, a new hostile mob found in the Nether.[1] On the same day, a poll for an official name for the mob was launched on the feedback section of the Minecraft.net website.[2]

On the same day, forum user urielsalis submitted "Pigger" as a potential name for the mob (screenshot shown below, left).[3] Within two hours, several posts on the /b/ board of 4chan were made by anonymous users, urging other users to vote for the submission (posts shown below, center and right).
