Help me name my beagleman
August 8, 2006 5:56 PM   Subscribe

I just adopted a puppy who looks like a Dobeagle or Beagleman - a doberman beagle mixture. She has the body of a beagle with the exact coloring of a doberman. She is so calm and sweet.

I have two directions for the name:

1. Beagleman - This sounds like a Jewish last name so I thought it would be cute to give her a Jewish name like Ada Beagleman or Esther Beagleman. I seem to be partial to names that start with Ad- or have a Z in them.

2. We were talking about her being part doberman and one of us referred to her as 'a dobie' like Adobe. I thought that as a puppy she could be an Adobe Acrobat. This seems a bit too commercial but I think it's really cute.

So now I open the floor to you. What do you think?

I think that a photo would help immensely.

I'm partial to human names for pets (I don't know why, but a "Hubert" has more personality than a "Fluffball"), so I particularly like Ada and Esther.

Agreed, though: we need pictures!

Dobies always make me think of Zelda.

How about Ruby Beagleman? Or Bathsheba Beagleman?
AdobieGillis? (Like Dobie Gillis but with Adobe... eh nevermind.) How about just Mrs. Beagleman? Then you can shout things like "Stop chasing those squirrels/digging that flowerbed/pooping on the lawn, Mrs Beagleman!"

I can't comment intelligently without first examining the evidence relating to the question being raised.

Dog pic! Dog pic!

Bagel. I'd call the dog Bagel.

Ada or Esther Beagleman is wonderful. Mrs. Beagleman is freakin' awesome.

But yeah. Cough up a puppy picture, or we really are gonna make you name her Photoshop Beagle McZedstein.

Why not just call her "Dobie"? She could totally be a Dobie. Little Miss Dobie Beagleman.

She's very cute, congrats!

Thanks for your help! I think we are down to two options:

Mrs. Ruby Beagleman
Mrs. Adah Beagleman

What do you think?

I'm all for Ruby, but you knew that.
posted by cior at 8:04 AM on August 10, 2006

If you go with Adah, I'd suggest doing Ada instead.

Another vote for (Mrs.) Ada (Beagleman), if only because the repeated "B" sound in "Ruby Beagleman" sounds a little...awkward. To me, anyway.
