Heads up for anybody thinking of using this name: "Beener" is a derogatory term for a Mexican.


We had been wanting a dog for a while and always planned to use this name, but when we got a pup last weekend and introduced him to a coworker we were informed by them about why this may not be the best name choice...

Neighbors growing up named their dog Peanuts, but the kids all has lisps. I was always so confused why they named their dog that when they'd be shouting for it to come home. Kinda made everyone in the neighborhood uncomfortable. ROC

haha I read the name biner and made no connection to the negative connotation that may accompany the name beener! May want to avoid that one!

Hilarious! I could just imagine the awkward look they'd get taking their dog to the park.

Its all in the spelling (which would be beaner, I believe).

Mine was named Peyton when I adopted him. I was constantly asked if it was after Peyton Manning. So I changed his name to Piton... He never noticed.

I think human names can go either way. I know a dog named Richard, and it's perfect. I also know a Stanley. On the other hand, naming your dog "Matt" or "Ashley" is just weird.

I know a dog named Prusik! Also, FlipFlop. & I like "Whipper".

I met this guy on a winter mountaineering course on Rainier. He thought he was badass cuz he dragged his girlfriend up there to propose, back in the day in the summer. She got altitude sickness and was vomiting on the summit. But he knelt down and spilled his guts out and she cut him off, said yes, and got the hell out of there. So he's telling us this story, and about how his dream is to climb McKinley and be a mountaineer so badly, to the point that he even named his daughter McKinley (afterall, his marriage started on Rainier, right?). We were on the course for a week and a lot of guys were training for McKinley, or should I say Denali. Yeah, the RMI guides made it clear that no self respecting mountaineer would ever called Denali anything but that. McKinley's dad had no comment, poor dude. Maurice Chaunders

My hounds name is Jumar. Originaly there were three posible names: Jumar, Piton, or Poop Tube. Ultimately the deciding factor was how the name sounded when you are yelling across a sleepy campground. Poop tube seemed pretty fitting but didn't have the same ring as Jumar.

Sad but true (it's been over 30 years). I knew a woman who named her dog "N-word" -- not the PC version, the actual epitet. She'd say "Gimmie five N-word" for shake, and "Get down N-word" for lie down. I also knew a guy in Cali named Philo who named his dog "Phidough". Do not repeat.


If possible, I would name my dog Faithful Dog. As in "Save that baby, Faithful Dog".

Buddies of ours had a pair of mutts, Hex and Stopper.

And yeah, avoid "biner." No matter how you spell it, it still sounds the same. I had the same thought briefly while living in an area of NW Denver that was home to a number of Hispanic folks, both good and not so much. As soon as I spoke it out loud, I decided against using it.
