British singer Adele draws on life experiences like breakups — and make-ups — to inspire her soulful songs. But finding inspiration for her dachshund's name? Not quite as simple.
Adele, says that her first choice for the male pup's moniker was Britney.
"He was born on the night I went to see Britney Spears at the O2 in London. I almost called him Britney even though he was a boy. [But] it only lasted a few hours until my hangover stopped."
Other options included Aaron Lennon, one of the singer's favorite soccer stars, but once the pooch started howling along to a Louis Armstrong record, Adele knew she had to name him Louie — with an "e."
We're glad you didn't go with Brit, bb!
Louie is a good boys name, Britney is what you should call a…. female dog.
