Ada

Mi first choice was Hypatia but that name is reserved for the cat, so she remained nameless for a few hours. The abandoned mutt with a head wound, two months old, dehydrated, flea-ridden and with a few ticks was anonymous from the moment I found her abandoned near the car to half hour after the vet cleaned her up, injected her antibiotics, wrote a prescription and gave us advice.

It had to be the name of a mathematician and a woman.

Meet Ada Augusta.

    Cuando ví la foto en el msn, como es pequeña y estaba sin gafas, creí que tenía un moño morado, al entrar a la página y ver ya la foto real y la explicación, las pupilas de toda la tribu se mojaron, un pequeño ser que encontró amor, la vida es muy linda y siempre nos dice algo.

    Thanks mon ami. I'll post more photos in a few days.

    Aye, Hypatia is much better for a cat. This wee one looks a little bit more of an Emily Noether. Perhaps the name could reflect the fact that she is going to have a quite easier life than poor lassie Hypatia. At least, from now on.

    I must confess that “Emily Noether” meant nothing to me until now. My ignorance is bottomless and that's why I love it: I can fight against it every single day. Unlike Ada whose only fight from now on will be to get some chocolate.

    And Lanark, is that your Scottish accent I feel?

  • apoloduvalis

    Are you referring, perhaps, to Emmy Noether?

    By the way… the crowd is demanding more photos of Ada Augusta. A webcam live feed would be ideal but regular pictures would suffice for now… ;)

    I thought so because she fits the bill. As her name is “Amalie Emmy” maybe “Emily” is just a lapsus-inspired choice :)

    Oops that was quite a quantum superposition: Amalie + Emmy => Emily?

    Could well have been Ammy, and if my memory continues worsening, will be Millie.

    Thanks for the correction, herr Duvalis.

    You're right, it works. She is so cute! Are you teaching her in English?

  • apoloduvalis

    Nichts zu danken, herr Lanark. in the contrary, thanks for make me learn about such an interesting character.

    And there I was, thinking that Wedgie was something else entirely :D

  • http://www.adapar.net/ adapar

    English was only used to keep the spirit of the page but we should teach her more languages. I am thinking English, German, French and Klingon. What do you think?

    And now I realize that the spirit of the page would have been better served by Scottish. Du'h!
