As others have said, the breeder of the dog is going to have some say in the matter, and you have to do what you're comfortable with as well. In my area it is pretty common for people to add their kennel name into the name of a dog bought for performance/show purposes. The two pups that I have out co-owned with friends both start with my kennel name, but include their kennel name. Baron is Sterre Texas Tycoon at Lynwood CD WCX SH, Sterre being mine, and Lynwood being my friends, and little girl Widget is Sterre Blastem Widgeon Widget, with Blastem being my friend's prefix. My Breeze, who I got from Marge Trowbridge of Trowsnest has my Sterre prefix included in her name. My oldest two only carry their breeder's prefix as at the time I got them I was just getting started in competitive venues and did not have a prefix yet. But their mom carried both her breeder and owner's prefixes as Nancy got her from another kennel.
