I'm on the fence about it. Mostly as I have given it some thought.

You'll want to check with your breeder and their contract. My boys have in their contract that the breeder's kennel name is to be the only kennel name in the registered name.

Many people burn out of this hobby. I don't think that I am one of them, but that is what everyone says. If people generally last 5 years, it just adds to confusion in kennel names IMO.

I think kennel names speak for breeding programs and 'where' to find the dogs. If you aren't going to have more than one or two dogs at this point, I'm not sure about it.

I personally do not use my kennel name in any registered name if I did not breed the dog, not even "at Nitlelite". It is used only if I bred the dog.

Hahaha

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.

I'm in the same boat as you and have had my "kennel name" picked out and registered with GRCA for some time. Slater and Harvin are the first two to bear the name since my dog is the sire (closest I'll come to breeding since I only have boys).

I have a kennel name if I ever breed anything. It's very premature since our girls are still too young, but we chose it for future use. That being said, I really don't like the idea of putting my kennel name on a dog I had nothing to do with breeding. It feels like I would be taking credit for someone's hard work. If I took a stud fee puppy out of a litter sired by my Jack then I would feel differently, and may put it in there, but none of our dogs have our chosen kennel name in their registered names since I had nothing to do with breeding them.

Yes, I think I agree with this, as I said in the OP. I guess I haven't changed my mind.
