As a part of their fresh start in LA, Prince Harry and Meghan Markle have reportedly adopted a dog, but some people are finding something rather funny about their unusual name choice...
Since his big move to LA, the British public have been mourning the loss of their favorite royal, Prince Harry.

Never before had such a popular member of the royal family stepped down from his royal duties...
via: GettyAnd, ever since his big move, royalists have been keen to get a glimpse into his new life... Including the name of his and Meghan's new dog, which hasn't sat too well with some.
Now, the Duke and Duchess of Sussex worked tirelessly together to fulfill their royal duties...
via: GettySince their highly-publicized wedding in 2018, the couple took part in many royal tours and visits all around the world.
Naturally, the world fell in love with the new Duchess.
via: Getty ImagesHer beautiful looks and elegant demeanor captured hearts all around the world, and her work for feminism and women's charities has set an excellent example within the royal family.
Cracks began to show early, however...
via: Getty ImagesMeghan was quickly criticized upon her entrance into the royal family, and not all the complaints were because she "wasn't royal enough." A family feud with her father, Thomas Markle, was quickly made very public and, when he didn't attend the wedding, the heat was turned onto Meghan.
Meghan has also been branded a "diva" by numerous sources since she became royalty.
via: Getty ImagesReports came through that Meghan was extremely high-maintenance in the palace and servers who worked for her had reportedly even quit their jobs due to her behavior. Of course, none of these reports are reliable, but they certainly made their way through newspapers around the world.
And, of course, there were reports of her supposed feuds with Kate Middleton...
via: ShutterstockIt was reported that Meghan left Kate "in tears" after a strict bridesmaid fitting for Princess Charlotte. But, despite many claims that the sisters-in-law are actually very close, tabloids in both the U.K and the U.S. like to state otherwise, saying that Kate is "fed up" of Meghan's high-maintenance attitude.
Meghan's parenting style has also been criticized.
via: Getty ImagesShe was repeatedly mom-shamed after paparazzi snaps emerged of her "awkwardly" holding baby Archie - a struggle that any new mom can totally relate to. Shaming a new parent is completely uncalled for, and this made it very obvious that the press were desperate to stir hate.
Meghan's eventful life was something that the papers simply loved to pick apart...
via: Getty ImagesAnd it seemed that British tabloid paper, The Mail on Sunday, took things a step too far when they published an intimate and private letter that Meghan wrote to her father earlier this year.
The Duke and Duchess had no choice but to take legal action against publishers of the Daily Mail...
via: Getty ImagesThis decision came as Prince Harry made a highly personal attack on the British tabloid press over the treatment of his wife, saying that he could "no longer be a silent witness to her private suffering."
And it was following from this scandal that the couple made their shock announcement.
via: Getty ImagesThe royal couple announced via their joint Instagram page that they were stepping down as senior members of the royal family. "After many months of reflection and internal discussions, we have chosen to make a transition this year in starting to carve out a progressive new role within this institution. We intend to step back as ‘senior’ members of the Royal Family and work to become financially independent while continuing to fully support Her Majesty The Queen," the post read.
The couple explained how they planned to split their time between North America and the UK.
This was a huge deal.
via: Getty ImagesAnd, obviously, their decision shook things up. "We look forward to sharing the full details of this exciting next step in due course, as we continue to collaborate with Her Majesty The Queen, The Prince of Wales, The Duke of Cambridge and all relevant parties."
Twitter exploded with reactions to the news, and they were certainly mixed.

Others praised the royal couple for the move.

Apparently, the pair didn't tell anyone about the news, instead opting to break it through Instagram.BBC, no other senior members of the Royal Family were consulted - including the Queen - and Buckingham Palace is "disappointed." The report also claims that senior royals are said to be "hurt" by the controversial announcement.
But can they really blame Meghan and Harry for making this decision?
via: Getty ImagesThe couple, especially Meghan, have received an unbelievable amount of negative press and comments over the years - which is enough to drive anyone mad.
The couple have now moved to LA with their son, Archie.
via: ShutterstockMaking it across the border mere hours before it closed, Meghan and Harry are reportedly riding out the coronavirus pandemic in a secluded compound in Malibu.
And, thanks to the move, things have changed for the better.
via: Getty Images"Meghan’s thrilled to have escaped the chaos of London. She feels like a new person," a source close to the pair said. "On top of not being hounded by the British press 24/7, Meghan reportedly likes that she doesn’t have to worry about following outdated royal protocol anymore."
She can now live a normal life.
via: Getty Images“Meghan can go out in yoga pants and not be criticized for not following a dress code. She feels more relaxed and loves walking around fresh-faced with barely any makeup on."
And, a part of their new "normal" life includes a dog.
via: GettyYep, reports have been claiming that the couple have adopted their first pet together, a labrador.
The news comes from the recent bombshell biography about the couple, Finding Freedom.
via: GettyThe book revealed that the pair had adopted, and also disclosed the name they had chosen for their pup.
The name was allegedly inspired from their trip to the African country, Botswana...
via: GettyTheir first official outing as a royal couple.
Are you ready for it?
via: GettyPula. In Botswana, Pula is the official currency, and also means "rain" in Setswana, which is considered as a scared phenomenon.
But, despite the heartwarming sentiment behind the dog's name...
via: GettyThe people all the way over in Romania have been laughing.
Yep, it turns out that Pula means something else entirely in Romania...
via: GettyAnd, let me tell you, it doesn't translate to rain.
Romanians have been quick to point out the blunder...One social media user from the country commented: "LOL, I wonder if they know what that word means in Romanian," while another wrote: "This word is famous in Romania."
It turns out that the name has rather rude connotations in Romania..."There'll be a whole lotta laugh if they visit Romania with the dog and start calling him out in any public place."
Are you ready for the grand reveal?In Romanian, Pula translates to d**k.
Let's just hope the couple never take little Pula to Romania!
