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.

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

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.

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.

When Yin and Yang resolve there is .... Nirvana

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.
