We've talked in the lousy labels thread about terrible labels that send the wrong message about a beer. I think as a field dominated by men, there is a fair bit of crudeness in beer naming, or inside-joke kinds of names that just seem dumb to anyone that would be buying the product. So what words should never be used in a beer's name?

Here's a few I've been thinking of:

Slobber
Knocker
Dog
"PG" Swear words like ass, bitch, etc.
Drool
Hair

Anyone else?

Light or the also popular Lite.

Reminded me of another word: Pabst. Not because the beer is bad, but because that word sounds vaguely like something to do with the gynecological field

Color descriptions don't really give you much information other than just the color, they could be left out or exchanged with more descriptive words.
Red Ale
Brown Ale
Black Ale
Blonde Ale
Dark Lager
Amber Lager
