Hedgehogs get their name from being extremely territorial about hedges (hedges being their equivilant of currency). A small garden hedge is worth about 40p in human currency, while the hedge maze at Windsor is worth around forty billion pounds. From this, we get the term hegemony.

A hedgehog can also refer to a topiary swine.
