There are several other naming conventions for pubs. Either describe an animal in a different grammatical form (such as The Hog's Head, from ''Literature/HarryPotter'', from the barrel volume hogshead and the UK pub chain of the same name) or have "The Adjective Noun," without referring to an animal (such as The Salty Spitoon, from ''WesternAnimation/SpongebobSquarepants'') or linking two random nouns with a "&" (Elephant & Castle).

This is OlderThanPrint, going back to the European High Middle Ages. You obviously wanted your pub to have a name, so people can say "Join me at Alice's Tavern," instead of Bob's Tavern down the path. But since literacy wasn't that big a thing back then, just writing "Alice's Tavern" on a sign would likely lead to someone not knowing that you've got a pub here. Instead, you'd paint a picture of, say, a red duck on the sign, and then people could say "Meet me at the sign of the Red Duck."[[note]][[Main/BritishPubs This remains useful today for those who cannot read, such as those who just got quite blitzed and now need to call a taxi.]][[/note]]
