Typographic Dog Names

I know this is silly but it made me laugh. It's a graphic of designers' dog names and I noticed that some were related to typography.

One day I will get a female Newfoundland and a male Pyrenees and name them Yin and Yang. But if they have a kid, what to name it?

Naming pets after fonts would be nice, but the wife would never allow it, so I'm twisting it round and naming my next font after the cat.

We bought a puppy April 2013 and named him Typo. My husband and I were typesetters and graphic artists years ago and we wanted a typographical name for a puppy.

Simon: Mutton could work, for a mixed-breed. Or a Komondor.

Based on "handles" some persons used to cover their real identity: Apostrophe, Character. I can't recall the rest, but there were were quite a few during the wild west era at alt binaries fonts and elsewhere 15 or 20 years ago.

Postscript and Truetype might work as dog names.

Actually, there is Dao.
Or, if they’re not resolved, there is Taiji.

Ooops. I got ahead of myself in Eastern philosophy. I overshot and reached Nothing before stopping off at Dao and Taiji.

For a dog with a nippy temperament, Interobang.
For a dog that twists around, Ampersand.
For a German shepherd, Fraktur.
For a dog that stays close to home, Kerning.
