A jennet, jenny, maud, moke, mule, Rocky Mountain canary or neddy. "Ass" or "jackass" can also be used, because the terms were used long before anyone thought to use them as a form of swearing or an insult. People would often define a male or female donkey by referring to each as either a "she-ass" or a "he-ass".

French = âne

German = esel

Spanish = burro

Portuguese = jumento

Italian = asino
