Port Vila, Vanuatu (PressExposure) August 17, 2009 -- It can be an absolute nightmare finding that perfect name for your dog. However, when American film director decided in his latest film, to call a dog Anwar Sadat, after the late Egyptian president, he ended up with a bigger dog fight than he could handle.
A character in the film said the dog was named Anwar Sadat because it resembled the late Egyptian president. Sadat, the political and military leader, was shot and killed by Islamic militants during a military parade in Cairo in 1981.
Sadat's daughter has called for the romantic comedy film 'I Love You Man', to be seized and removed from all local theatres.
She is suing the producer of the film, the actors and the company which distributed the film in Egypt. She has also filed a complaint against the Egyptian Minister of Information, Anas el-Fiqqi, for allowing the film to be released in Egypt. "The film is insulting to the memory of my father. It undermines Egypt and its leading rule in the Middle East", says Rukiya Sadat.
One of the most heavily researched items on the Internet is what to call your dog. However it is important to make sure a name fits a dog. Try yelling it out and see how it feels. The day will come when it is the name you have to yell out loud in a park somewhere, for all to hear. You also need to ensure the name is not insulting to anyone.
In case you are running short of some ideas, here are a couple of suggestions. You could try Mister Bubbles, or Bruiser? For a bit of real confusion call your dog something similar to one of your kids, such as Spruce, or maybe Moose, if you happen to have a son called Bruce.
There are of course dog movie stars such as Lassie and Beethoven, but you could consider calling your dog Brad, Marilyn, or Schwarzeneger, or is that Tinkerbell? You could also try names like Hitler, Genghis, or Nero.
A recent guest at a hotel picked up a stray dog and insisted on calling the black and white mutt Pompom. "No Pompom, No Pompom", was heard all day long. A dog left behind by a gardener was named Police, so âthe policeâ are frequently called in that neighbourhood.
For a last piece of advice you need to consider if the name you choose will suit the dog for the length of the dogâs life, as it is very hard to change the name. Stay out of dog fights If you donât want to end up like the American film director and need to stay out of dog fights and donât want to turn an entire nation against you, donât call your dog by the name of a president.
