EtymologyEdit

Unclear, but likely from Cornish porth (harbor) + bugel (shepherd), with the latter element either influenced by English beagle or in fact formed from it, with only the first element truly being from Cornish.

NounEdit

porbeagle (plural porbeagles)

 
A porbeagle.
  1. A large pelagic predatory shark, Lamna nasus, of the Atlantic.
    • 1983, Richard Ellis, The Book of Sharks, Knopf, →ISBN, page 59:
      In English waters, the porbeagle is considered the premier shark to catch, but in other parts of the world it is considered a nuisance, or at best a poor substitute for its more glamorous relative, the mako.
