Thread Name: Origins: 'Dony' / Doney
Subject: RE: Origins: 'Dony' / Doney
I'm wondering if GUEST,YT1300 confused the Irish word "dubh" which means "black" for "dun". I realize that was the word that I was thinking of when I wrote that "dun" meant the color black (in some other language)

But if that's the case, why did he (or she) think the name "Doney" was an obvious name for a dog that is the color black and that was adopted by a person who loves country blues and old time music?
