Turns out Peabody, mother to Sweetpea, is called a peahen, not a peacock. In my defense, Wikipedia states that “In common English usage, however, “peacock” is used to mean any peafowl.”

Doesn’t this beg the question, why the rather masculine-sounding “Peabody”? Why not “Penelope”, “Petunia” or “Prudence”?
