Carnegie Mellon names its Scottish Terrier Mascot

The name was chosen by a survey of students, faculty, staff and alumni.

This is why they tell you never to create something based on a focus group. You go to the focus group afterwards.

  1. I like the name Scotty =). In fact, my own Scottie is named Scottie. I don’t think Scottie minds, given there aren’t a lot of Scotties running around. Also, you could give a lot of good nick-names to Scottie, like Scottie-O and Scottie McScott. Any other ideas?

  2. In the final analysis, I guess Scottie’s not such a bad name. I just find it funny it took so many people to come up with it.

  3. If they think Scotty is too wimpy, how about Diehards? As in: ” The breed’s stubbornness often translates into bravery. In the nineteenth century a military man, George the fourth Earl of Dumbarton, had a famous pack of Scotties. These dogs were so brave in battle that they were nicknamed “diehards.” George’s regiment, the Royal Scots, were called “Dumbarton’s Diehards” after the dogs. Today that bravery has a different application in home protection, but the nature of it hasn’t changed.”
