Need help with kennel names

Hello all.. Let me just start off by stating not jumping the gun on creating a kennel name..this is going to be a lifelong endeavor, just need help with choosing a name. I have a hard time being creative and I don't want to risk being too far out there or potentially having a name close to some one else's and then getting someone mad at me.

I was looking at a few names, but I need to hear if any of them are doable or just not good.. I don't want it to sound too corny.. Ya know!

1) Carriage Lane Goldens (there is a Carriage Hill goldens- so not sure if thats ok to do with it being so close??) we live on Carriage lane hence the name
2) Slice of Golden (part of our last name)
3) jeweled Goldens (my 1st golden was named Julie Jewel)
4) jeweled Lilly's goldens (playing off both my goldens names)
4) lights action Golden (playing off Lilly's AKC name)
5) Dreaming Golden (playing on how much i have dreamed of doing this)
6) Sogni D'oro - golden dreams in Italian..part of my heritage ..

Any of this ok? Yay or nay? Fee free to add things.. I was trying to come up with something from either All my dogs initials which are RJRCSLT ..not easy or my families initials JAEJ.. Again not easy lol

Hmmm...out of all of them, I do like the 1st one the best. I always try to put a full registered name with the kennel name and see if it sounds weird.

I know how you feel...it took me a long time to come up with one! Do you live in a subdivision? Street name? Area? Things you like to do or interest?

Let me ponder a little on some of what you like and see if I can think of something. Here is a cool website to look at:

I am not good at coming up with names either but one thing that came to mind is that you would not want to make the kennel name too long. When people register their dogs they usually list the kennel name first and if it is too long it would be difficult to add more to it to come up with a name. Does that make sense?

The one name I don't care for is "Slice of Golden". The others seem OK.

I don't envy you trying to come up with a kennel name. I guess I would choose a name that has the most meaning and connection to you.

I like the last one best. I don't know how people would combine it with the puppies names if you require the name be used.
Have you thought about mixing the family initials and the dogs initials?

I like the last one best, unique and short enough for people to add their dog's registered name.

i kind of too but do you think it would be an issue with there being the other name so close?
I know how you feel...it took me a long time to come up with one! Do you live in a subdivision? Street name? Area? Things you like to do or interest?
my development is actually called carriage lane ..lol it is has a little sign an all. We have my road carriage lane and then one other one that leads from the main road called pleasant drive. I live in Dover but also near other towns/places called either Camden or Rising Sun. Also another thing our area is called murderkill. Not exactly a good one to use! Lol

yes that's what is one of my problems. Not too long.

yeah not caring too much for that either lol

its just hard because of all the little things I have to make sure it has or that no one else has it..I've checked it's of them out and only 2 or so are close to someone else's .

Thanks all for your replies.. I like the last one too. Do you think having the Italian name in the US be confusing? I think it's pretty too. No one has the name, that I'm a aware of.

If anyone has suggestions I'm all ears..ehh eyes!
