Caleb - khaf - lamed - beit


Explanation:
I agree with the spelling above, but please... who wants to tattoo "dog" on themselves.

Kelev is dog in Hebrew, BUT

Caleb is a Biblical figure who
spied with Joshua (i.e. Numbers 13).
"...from the tribe of Judah, Caleb the son of Jephunneh".

Both renderings have the same characters,
but with different pronunciations,
therefore with different meanings.
