Google's Gu Ge is no Gou Gou in China

Google’s new name, Gu Ge which loosely translated means harvest song, is getting a lot of feedback and most of it is negative. In a recent poll by Sina.com, 85% of those responding were opposed to the Gu Ge name. Gou Gou (dog dog), already taken, was favored by most as a more appropriate name. Other suggestions in order of popularity are Goule (enough), Gugu (auntie), Gugou (ancient dog) and Gege (elder brother) according to the website Noguge.com.
