We have had all of our dogs live here, except for two of them since they stayed at my parents and we've had our kids here.. S I lots of memories have been created here..
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"?
hmm.. That sounds nice.. Something else to ponder lol
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?
thanks.. Have to remember that!
Keep the suggestions coming!

Interesting topic. I like Jeweltone best. The others are too long, hard to pronounce, or similar to what's out there. I think Jeweltone would be very pretty-I can imagine a website with some gemstones on the entry page!!

I don't like any name that begins wiht or ends with the word Golden... to common, to much like a BYB.... honestly I think if you stop thinking about it, someday it will come to you... Golden Dream has 12 letters in it... that is 13 letters/spaces taken away from a cool registered name.... remember you are going to be associated with this kennel name for a very long time to come so make sure it is something you really want....

See to me having golden or gold in it doesn't sound like a Byb, there are so many breeders/kennels with gold or golden in it. It just boils down to that they are a good reputable breeder who does something with their dogs, does clearances and are there for you for life. The Byb breeder i got my first dog from did not have golden in it, but Lilly comes from breeder Goldridge..

I have a bit before i set anything permanently just wanted opinions on it before i decided as I'm not a creative person.

Thanks for the help so far!

goldridge one word does not have the world golden in it.... remember that your kennel name is different than your website name

for example my website might be milbrose goldens but the kennel name is actually the one word milbrose.... (which by the way is a combination of my husbands grandparents first names ambrose and mildred and the name they used to register their holsteins under when the farm was a working one) so any dogs registered under that name are like Meir for example Milbrose Duck n Run if you think about my natalie she came from kennel name O'lugh to my kennel Milbrose so her registered name is
O'lugh Milbrose Dare to be Different so think about how you will use the name and that might help you narrow down your choices.

so consider that as well....

Just putting in my 2 cents. Years ago when I was starting out,I chose a name that unbeknownst to me was very close to a long time breeder from Texas.I caused a huge problem and she called me up screaming at me, that she was going to sue me for using part of her name. Legally there wasn't anything she could do becasue she didn't even have the name legally registered as a business. However I chose to take the high road, and although it made me angry that she was so aggressive, I changed my kennel name.I figured it wasn't worth her bad mouthing me to everyone she came across. SO good luck in the pursuit of a name!

this is a really good point... you really do want to be careful about getting to close to anothers kennel name I know of breeders whose kennel name was deliberately stolen. I am sorry that you got a nasty phone call... but it is scary to have someone take your kennel name and your reputation along with it... although sugar vs. vinegar usually wins

My $0.02 worth:
1. Keep the prefix short and to the point. The longer your prefix the less space your puppy people have for naming their pup. Like others have said, you can use *** Goldens for your kennel presence, but only the *** part has to be used in registering. The BYBers tend to use things like Hanks Goldens Joey, etc., including the word goldens and a family name.
2. Foreign language can be fine--especially if it has meaning to you. Mine is Sterre which is a derivative of the Dutch word for star--ster. So it connects to my heritage, but also gives an idication of my hopes for my dogs.
3. Steer clear of anything close to a current or historical breeder. If they are reputable, using something too close it it can be interpreted as trying to ride on their reputation, and if not reputable you can be mixed up for them! :/ Aside from k9data, another good list to check is the prefix listings in the GRNews, which includes current and historical kennel names. There are some scummy breeders now using some of the retired historical kennel names, which makes me a bit angry!
4. Try to come up with something fairly unique and there will be less chance of it getting confused for someone else's--there are an awful lot of Golden kennels using variations autumn, amber, etc.
