Real name: Lulu
The nicknames there that are variations on her name are used almost exclusively by Dada, while “Mush-Bug” is mostly used by Mama. Lulu answers to just about any of them, but then, she answers pretty much any time she hears a human saying anything, because humans mean belly rubs, and possibly cardboard boxes that can be shredded.
