This puppy has everything she needs, except a name.

We just adopted this 8 month old female Pekingese
from a shelter in the midwest. We started out working through Buffy-verse names, and got excited about Fred, which we long-formed first to Winifred, then decided that sounded like a middle name and tried to think of a very generic first name, like Lady.
We ended up with Lady Winifred and we call her Fred, but the grandparents object, and we're open to choosing something different, since we chose it before meeting her.

She has fun stripes and spots, a surprisingly giant mouth
and makes some pretty ridiculous chirping and honking noises.
Aside from Whedon related names, names from swing era jazz are fun - but Ella just doesn't seem like it has enough consonants, and appropriate though it might be, we can't call her "Plunger Mute." Names relating to her fun coloring or over-all similarity to a monkey are also appealing.
