In Any Case, Camille's Hebrew Name Is Easier Than Reilly's; And...

"Camille Dominique"—per "Mimi", "perfect chosen one of God"—is...

  1. מושלמת ("Mushlemet")
  2. נבחרה-לאל ("Nikvarah-L'El") 
  3.  מושלמת נבחרה-לאל ("Mushlemet Nikvarah-L'El")
  4. Literally, "Perfect, she was chosen for God"
Google Translate, Milon, etc. helped "Auntie Nicole" greatly—nonetheless, coming up with Camille's Hebrew name was hard—and "Mushlemet" or "Nikvarah-L'El" might have sufficed, and "Mushlemet'el" may be controversial. As for Reilly's name...for starters, had "Momma" known that "Rose" is Vered...

Updated: Maybe it should be (שליחיה(ו—"Shliachyah(u)"—or (נביאהיה(ו—"Nevi'ahyah(u); or  "נבחרה מושלמת"—"perfectly chosen". Then again, Reilly has a middle name; though "Auntie Nicole" ("Momma" to Reilly) does not want to imply that Camille (or Reilly) is perfect, since only God is perfect.

(PS Speaking of names, "Momma" still won't reveal the name of whom she thinks her helpmate and Reilly's "Daddy" is. He'll have to confirm or deny "Momma"'s suspicions before she reveals it.)

One Reminiscence Over Two Pictures, A French-Bulldog Video, A Laugh Because Of A Maltipoo In A Picture, And...

The story of Dixie Mirabelle Madeline Dominquie Camille Dominique (Wierzbinska Czerniecka Czarnecki)* comes to mind to tell. Like Reilly, except not like Reilly:

  1. Camille was going to be "Dixie Mirabelle"—and you can guess why that one, and any name with "Dixie" in it, was kiboshed!
  2. "Mirabelle"
  3. "Madeline"
  4. "Madeline Dominique"
  5. The dark apricot one, "Mimi" thought
  6. The black one, "Auntie Nicole" thought
  7. One of the boys in the litter
Camille Dominique ended up being a girl after all—and her human family should've known that she is the light apricot one, as she is the unique one in the pictures—and she ended up being related to Reilly!

Joyce sent "Auntie Nicole" these photos of the yet-to-be-named Camille upon "Auntie Nicole"'s request

"Mimi" took the pictures of "Auntie Nicole" meeting Camille, whom came home on June 10, 2015

No automatic alt text available.
Camille developed a rapport with her human family.

Camille had been home for about a month and a half by this time.

Meanwhile, some things have yet to change—for example, Reilly and Camille still don't have Reilly's "Daddy"/Camille's "Uncle ___[?]" in the picture. Also, "Momma"/"Auntie Nicole" has "just" Depression, ADD, &c.—as opposed to Hypothyroidism—in any case, she's not as good a "Momma"/"Auntie Nicole" as she could be.

* "Mimi" is going to kill "Auntie Nicole" for this. Incidentally, Camille was captivated by an electric-violin version of "Hatikvah" on YouTube minutes ago.

Besides What "Momma" Mentioned Re Naming Reilly Before...

"Momma" wanted a cat.


"Momma" then wanted a Golden (really, a Labrador) Retriever named "Bernie".

"No...a small dog..."

Then "Momma" wanted a French bulldog.

"No...". "Mom-Mom" wanted "Momma" to get a mixed-breed dog.

Momma still wanted a boy dog named "Bernie".

"No...a girl dog..."

After researching and considering breeds, "Momma" decided on a Maltipoo; and "Momma" and "Mom-Mom" reached an agreement on naming the puppy "Reilly Rosalita" for a friend's recently-deceased "Reilly" and Rosalita McCoy Reilly, and Rosa's daughter Alice Reilly Allen.

The rest is history—as "Momma" wrote down thanks to one particular person and other people whom inspired "Momma" to write about Reilly and other subjects.

Somewhat Offbeat: The One-Year Birthday Girl & More About Naming

The sister of a certain Camille just turned one years old on October 20th, meaning that she's a "bark mitzvah"! At least in Gregorian terms, she's a "bark mitzvah"—since one human year for Maltipoos equals 15 dog years—and she was an actual "bark mitzvah" in between 9-10 months—11.3-12.5 years, though one could count whatever's between 10-11 months for 12.5-13.8 years.

Like her cousin and her sister, Shelby tends to not like the camera when she is tired.

As for naming (though, by the way and as far as I know, Shelby won't get a Hebrew name), I'd already talked naming any human sibling that Reilly ever has. I will now talk about what I'd never name pets:

  1. "Donald", unless the "Donald" or "Donnie" or "Don" in question is not named for Donald Trump or similar Donalds. ("Bannon", "Kellyanne", and "Katrina" are no-go names in certain cases, too.)
  2. Any person whom is known or thought to not want a pet named for him or her
  3. Decedents whose names aren't worth carrying on. 
  4. As in Case 1, a name of any living person whose name is not worth continuing in either his/her lifetime or lifetimes after that
  5. Crude names (no matter how funny some of them might be)
  6. Other mean names—e.g., a cat that a neighbor bought was originally named "Lump Of Coal", as in "I guess it's better than a lump of coal." "Lump" or "Lumpy" might be mean as well, though "Coal" would be okay for a black cat or any other black pet (as a neighborhood couple named of their pets)
  7. Charged names—e.g., "Dixie", which someone wanted to name his or her pet until that idea was kiboshed
  8. Derogatory names—as charged names are bad enough
In other words, use common sense when you name a pet!

Somewhat Offbeat: "Momma" Will Name Any Human "Siblings" Of Reilly That She Has (God Willing) Like She Named Reilly

As "Momma" has written:

"Reilly is a Patrilineal Maltese (Patrilinealtese?) and a Matrilineal MaltiJew (and you can definitely see what I did there in terms of the talking about the Matrilineal Poo[dle]), whereas Camille is a Patrilineal Maltipoo and a Matrilineal Toy Poodle. Thus, she's a MaltiJew on her dad's side. Meanwhile, Reilly's "Momma" identifies more with her Jewish heritage (and Reilly was even named in a shiyum shel haminhag Ashkenazi), whereas Camille's "Mimi" identifies with her more-remote French heritage (Incidentally, at the reunion, I found that the DeBoys are of Jewish heritage, anyway—not to mention that "Mimi" inadvertently named Camille Dominique after Great-Great-Granddad's paternal grandmother!)"
Of course, this far from rules out shivum shel minhag HaSefardim—after all, for example, Reilly's "Great-Great-Grandaunt" Agnes took the name "Mary Rosalita" when she became a nun (and when Reilly's "Great-Three-Times-Grandma" was still alive); pause here—Reilly's "Great-Three-Times-Grandma" Rosalita "Rose [or "Rosa"]" may have been Sephardic after all, as her first two siblings were "John Henry" (which was their father's English name—since his dad was born in Lisboa, and he was likely an Anusi) and MaryAnn (which was their mother's name), and Sephardim will name their children after parents.

Here's are some example names that "Momma" would use:

  1. "Alexandria Alice" or "Alice Alexandria" after another "Great-Three-Times-Grandma" of Reilly, whom had Sephardic heritage & named one of her own daughters "Alexandria Alice". She also had a grandchild named "Alexandria Rose", presumably for her and for her daughter Celia's alive-at-the-time in-law mother (So, here, Ashkenazi and Sephardi custom likely played a role.).
  2. "Xavier Joseph" after quite a few people: Reilly's "Great-Granddaddy" Francis Xavier "X." Allen (with "Xavier" being carried on as a middle name for one of his sons, two of his grandsons, etc.); one of the people whom inspired "Momma" to write about Reilly, one of her uncles with that middle name, Reilly's "Great-Four-Times-Grandfather" Joseph Andrulewicz (although his namesake "Susi" was, from what "Momma" heard, was a real somebody), and other relatives and friends
  3. "Rosalita Reilly" or "Reilly Rosalita" (though, in all seriousness, to name a child after a puppy, even a beloved puppy—whether or not the puppy is still living, might be highly insulting)

Offbeat: On One Person Whom Particularly Inspired "Momma" To Write About Reilly—And Whom Is Anonymous For Right Now

Out of the people whom inspired "Momma" to write about Reilly, one in particular will always stand out to "Momma" and have a special place in her heart—no matter what, since especially that person inspired her to begin becoming a full-time author. In fact, as "Momma" recalls, she wrote and sent Reilly's first real full biography to the particular person—whom she thinks about every day, and about whom she's told Reilly.

When Reilly first came home, "Momma" wrote a biography on Reilly—though that biography was nothing like this biography:

Part One of A Short Biography Of My Puppy, Reilly Rosalita

I own a very-unique Maltipoo puppy—"Reilly Rosalita" by name, and "Reilly" by nickname (along with other nicknames). Born on March 25, 2014, Reilly was fittingly named after my Irish-American great-grandmother—she was, after all, born only a week and a day after a favorite holiday of my great-grandmother, Alice Allen nee Reilly. She was, meanwhile, given the first name of Nana Allen's mother—Rosalita "Rosa" Reilly—as her middle name.

With Reilly's unique name comes her unique personality—a sweet, firey, JIrish personality (with the "JIrish" part coming from her Jewish-Irish "Momma"—me—and perhaps from her "Momma"'s great-great-grandmother Rosalita, who may have been a Patrilineal Portuguese Jew. Incidentally, this reminds me that I jokingly call Reilly a "Malti-Jew" and a "Matrilineal Poo".).
As for Reilly's looks, they come very much from her sire—a four-year-old Maltese named "Oobie-Wone"—and from whomever Reilly's dame—six-year-old Apple—inherited her recessive genes, which she passed down to Reilly. Much of Reilly's personality also comes from "Oobie-Wone"—a quiet one—and Apple—a, as Reilly puts it, "reclusive", "sweet", "good mother". Oddly enough, by the way, Apple reminds me of, with her coloring and demeanor, Nana Allen (of whom I've seen pictures and about whom I've heard quite a bit) and Nana Reilly (from whom, as I understand, Nana Allen inherited her own looks and demeanor. Perhaps like Apple, as a canine, doesn't and does, Nana Reilly, as a person, "didn't like children, and she kept her girls to herself"—after all, Apple keeps to herself and keeps her offspring close to her).



Incidentally, "Momma" hopes and prays to reconnect with that person
—whom had and still has a huge impact on "Momma"'s life, and whom will hopefully meet Reilly—someday.
