Have you thought about mixing the family initials and the dogs initials?
maybe I will try that, haven't done mixing the two together.

I like the first and last ones!

I have also thought about creating a kennel name at some point- and I already have my name. I'm just not sure how to go about actually creating one. But, I'm not looking to get another dog for a few years from now anyway.

I thik the kennel name should be short and mean something to you.... but I also think it should be easy for people to say and spell... if you are planning on breeding someday and having your own line then that is something to consider... if at this point it is just for your dogs that is different.

Personally I like the first one and I would perhaps take the word Lane off of it ... it shortens it up and if you move it still works....

I do like the last one but there is a golden dreams kennel... but also my concern would be that people will massacre the spelling... i know I would honestly... also in kennel names it seems that irish dogs have irish kennel names, italian dogs have italian kennel names, goldens have english/scottish kennel names, etc etc.. not that you have to stick with this convention of course but it does seem to be the norm....

I personally don't like anything that ist he persons name as the kennel name... reminds me to much of byb'ers, and I dont typically like the world golden in a kennel name...

I do like Jeweled.... that could be my favorite actually because of the above.... easy to say, easy to spell, short enough to add a registered name to it... sounds classy.... yeah I think of those above i do think that is the best for practical reasons...

you just pick.... and then you go to OFA and k9 data and other places and do your due diligence to make sure someone else doesn't have it... a web search etc. Then you can set up your website with your name if you have one or when you get your next puppy include it in their registered name a voila it is yours... once you do clearances etc, it will show up on their name and you have yourself a kennel name... thats it... unless you are actively breeding often you won't have enough pups to have it be an AKC registered kennel name... mine is not AKC registered, I don't breed enough... but thats it... it really is not a big process... just find something that you like and go with it...

My son came up with "Celebration" when he was 7, because, he wanted part of my Laney(Mandell Marlenes Celebration UD RA CGC) to be in the rest of out dogs... So I get trying to come up with a name that ties in your current dogs....

Janice and The Celebration Gang -
"Samantha, George, Tiki, Emily, Mick and Basil" Gone but not forgotten, Sally(Windjammer's Ima Country Girl CDX CGC), Laney(Mandell Marlenes Celebration UD RA CGC), and Cookie(Starseeker's Kissmas Cookie CDX RE CGC).

Of the ones you've listed I liked Carriage Lane the best -- but it is long -- need to think about how much room it will take up. Maybe just "Carriage" -- but does that really mean something to you?
Don't like anything with "gold" or "golden" in it -- too obvious
The last Italian one -- it is pretty, but nobody will spell or pronounce it right.
Going with the jewel theme, how about "Jeweltone"?
Another consideration is buyers may or may not put an 's at the end of it, how does it sound both with and without the 's?

I like them too..I want to be different but not too different. I like the last one but I'm having a hard time saying it myself..lol I'm not too fluent in Italian just thought could maybe pay homage to it.

I like your name...just wish this was easy but it has turned out to be anything but! Lol

i agree too. I want it to be something that people can remember . And if I do have a litter that its not much to use on the front end.

Personally I like the first one and I would perhaps take the word Lane off of it ... it shortens it up and if you move it still works....

im on the fence about removing the lane part.. Also moving it? I'm not exactly sure how to visualize doing that..

I do like the last one but there is a golden dreams kennel... but also my concern would be that people will massacre the spelling... i know I would honestly... also in kennel names it seems that irish dogs have irish kennel names, italian dogs have italian kennel names, goldens have english/scottish kennel names, etc etc.. not that you have to stick with this convention of course but it does seem to be the norm....

yes and my other thought was geographically don't want to confuse anyone lol

I personally don't like anything that ist he persons name as the kennel name... reminds me to much of byb'ers, and I dont typically like the world golden in a kennel name...

yes I guess you are right ..should probably nix those ideas..

I do like Jeweled.... that could be my favorite actually because of the above.... easy to say, easy to spell, short enough to add a registered name to it... sounds classy.... yeah I think of those above i do think that is the best for practical reasons..

just Jeweled... Something to think about..

Thanks for all your help!
.
You guys are awesome!
