I know a girl that has a dog named Mogley. I asked her why she named him Mogley. She said he was named after the character in The Jungle Book. The character’s name is spelled Mowgli, so I asked her why she didn’t name him Mowgli. She told me to shut up and go to Hell. Maybe I was rude, but spelling mistakes bug the shit out me, especially when it comes to names. Names are important. You shouldn’t give anyone or anything a name that you can’t spell correctly, especially if that name comes from a beloved classic. She could have spent thirty seconds looking up the correct spelling online, but instead she butchered it and Mogley’s suffered ever since. It’s kind of sad that the first thing she did when she got her dog was to make a mistake that she never bothered to correct. Poor Mogley. Poor Rudyard Kipling. And poor English skills.
