back to article Name that donkey: Barbarella battles Bathsheba

We at the El Reg Iberian bureau's Donkey Affairs Department are very much obliged for all your suggestions as to how we might name the latest member of our asinine fold – the splendid jenny seen here* yesterday challenging kittens in baskets for a slice of the 2012 cute creature calendar market: Our unnamed jenny seen yesterday …

My vote...

... is for Booty, a fine name for an Ass methinks!

As for the fourth dog why didn't you name her "Wellard"?

in Finland..

..it's normal for a child to be given a 'working name' until the real name is chosen, usually at the "Christening", some 6 weeks later.

My missus chose "Toivo" as the working name. It means "Hope".

The '-ton' bit at the suffix of a Finnish word means "-un". Naturally, I immediately named him "Toivoton" - hopeless.

Lester, I pray You don't make the same error!

Best regards to You and Your ass. (Maybe I should rephrase that...)

Bucephala is accurate actually

Sorry to get all pedantic here but Bucephala is in fact the actual name of Alexander's steed in greek. The duck was named such because of its big/puffy head which is what bucephala literally means (boffin humour perhaps?).

Fails on gender tho :)

Please read the article, title is not chosen yet, that's the whole point...

My vote is for "Bottom" (shades or Shakespeare, and it is an ass after all)

Hmmm...

If those are the choices, I'd have to say that I like "Bathsheba" the most.

To think that a little commentard such as myself may in some small way influence the naming of a donkey that is far away from my own part of the world...this is The Power Of The Internet(tm).

Bellamy should be out then

as technically it's masculine.

Now Bella, or Bellatrix, would go nicely on a bit of SQUEE! like that. Bathsheba would get my vote too, but could the Spanish pronounce it?

Re: balance a guiness on her head

Good idea. Teach her to play snooker and she can be Beer-tricks Potter.

Too bad the letter K was out of consideration

Kim Kardashian would have been a perfect name for an ass.

Since that's out, my vote is for Barbarella.

Since we're in Spain

Better not say that you wish you were hung like a donkey - you might find yourself on a one-way trip off a church tower.
