"Bunny Tennington", a member of the Rutherford Family and 15th Baron Tennington, is a character in the Tarzan novels of Edgar Rice Burroughs. He marries Jane Porter's best friend, Hazel Strong.

Philip José Farmer's Tarzan Alive adds further information, identifying Bunny as the son of the 14th Baron Tennington and as a cousin of Tarzan, based on references by Burroughs indicating that Bunny is related to Tarzan's mother. According to Farmer, Lord Tennington was killed in the North Sea during World War Two.

By Tarzan's own account (sent to Farmer following the publication of Tarzan Alive, which book it contradicts in certain notable and deliberate aspects), "Extracts from the Memoirs of Lord Greystoke", Bunny Tennington was the 'colonial official' who originally told Burroughs the story of Tarzan.
