A beagle.

Etymology

edit

From Middle English *begel (begles (plural)), of uncertain origin. Possibly a corruption of Middle English bedel (beadle) in the sense of "constable, detective" (for change of d compare Middle English bugge from Old English budda; Middle English -inge from -inde; etc.); or alternatively from Middle French beegueule (one who keeps their mouth open), whence modern French bégueule (a colloquial insult said to women of low status and accused of stupidity, who always have their mouths gaped or open; a prude); from Old French beer, bayer (to gape, gawk) + Old French gueule (gullet). The modern French bigle (beagle) however is a borrowing from the English.
