“Justice,” “Anthony Scarapoochie,” and More—Your Best Ideas for Naming Elizabeth Warren’s Puppy

Donald Trump Jr. Tried to weigh in. Your suggestions were better.

After Sen. Elizabeth Warren announced she got a new puppy, we asked you to suggest some creative dog names for her. And wow, did you respond.

We also heard from Donald Trump Jr., who tried to troll us on Twitter, but your suggestions were far better.

Here are just some of our favorites: 

  • Thurgood. No one fights for justice/equality quite like Elizabeth Warren & no one fought for justice/equality quite like Thurgood Marshall.”
  • “Rebel”
  • “Tuffy because she needs someone tough by her side.”
  • “Raza, it means hope. We need hope and Elizabeth Warren is, for me, the mother of hope. 😉”
  • “‘Spero,’ which is Latin for ‘hope’ and also an awesome doggo name!”
  • “Consumer watch dog”
  • “Dodd Frank”
  • “Anthony Scarapoochie” 
  • “Dogged Pursuit”
  • “Endeavor”
  • “Hope” 

“Percy,” short for persistence, and “Justice” were two of the most frequent suggestions. 

Still no word from the senator on what she’s decided to name her pup, but let’s hope she takes some of your suggestions into consideration. 

IT'S NOT THAT WE'RE SCREWED WITHOUT TRUMP:

"It's that we're screwed with or without him if we can't show the public that what we do matters for the long term," writes Mother Jones CEO Monika Bauerlein as she kicks off our drive to raise $350,000 in donations from readers by July 17.

This is a big one for us. It's our first time asking for an outpouring of support since screams of FAKE NEWS and so much of what Trump stood for made everything we do so visceral. Like most newsrooms, we face incredibly hard budget realities, and it's unnerving needing to raise big money when traffic is down.

So, as we ask you to consider supporting our team's journalism, we thought we'd slow down and check in about where Mother Jones is and where we're going after the chaotic last several years. This comparatively slow moment is also an urgent one for Mother Jones: You can read more in "Slow News Is Good News," and if you're able to, please support our team's hard-hitting journalism and help us reach our big $350,000 goal with a donation today.
