Each year a unique contest is held in Petaluma, California to determine ‘The World’s Ugliest Dog’. Owners seeking a name truly fitting of an ugly canine might consider those of past contestants and champions. Mugly, Gus, and Archie are a few historical winners. Other unsightly ideas can be borrowed from fictional creatures. Yoda, Gremlin, Modok, and Ren are fitting titles. If fictional ugly doesn’t do the trick, another popular route is to trace up the old family tree. Many names that were common in the past are often viewed as repulsive by today’s standard. Beatrice, Gertrude, Myrtle, and Dorcas are some that have typically been discontinued. Another valuable resource is the thesaurus. A name could be derived from descriptive words related to the visually unappealing. Grisly, Mangle, and Surly are a few ideas to kick-start the brainstorming.
