I have yet to register either of my pups. The Corgi has one picked out and she is Patties Devil in Disguise. But can not think of one of Abby.

With the horses I have use the bloodlines in their names but over time have somewhat gotten away from that. I will say that most of the regitered names with dogs are really weird. Although I supose some say the same thing about the horses althoug some are really arigingal. A friend of mine is really good at picking really different and neat names.

Some of my favorites are Boot Scoot and Dully, Pearl Handled Gun, An Apple a Day just to name a few. They are darivatives from their sires and dams with a twist. Like Apple's sire is Doc's Perscription.

The name Goldy was chosen by our daughter (5 at the time), and we chose "Mina's Golden Boy" as his registered name.

Our daughter also chose our new puppy's name - Freddy, and we chose "Mina's Mister Rogers" (after Fred Rogers from Mister Rogers Neighborhood - the kids show)

My son had already given him the name Brooks. I decided to use my son's name (Scott) and then the word Golden just seemed to flow nicely,
Scott's Golden Brooks

He was Thor first because we wanted a strong name for him. For his registered name we wanted something to suit his personality. Thus, Valentino since he's such a lover and Forester because he loves sticks. Thor Valentino Forester.

We chose the name Phoebe from the series Friends...went out to celebrate and I jokingly told my daughter we should register her as Smelly Cat (there is an episode devoted to Smelly Cat). My daughter loved it. I did ask the breeder if she would mind that as a registered name, the breeder yelled to her daughter, "is it okay if they register this puppy Smelly Cat?", her daughter yelled back, "As long as they name her Phoebe!" Phoebe's registered name is Smelly Cat.

Oaklys call name had been picked out well before his birth. My love of woodworking and the fact I had named my previous dogs Cedah (Mainer version of Cedar) and Arby (Short for Arborvitae, Latin for Cedar) Oaklys AKC name is just {Kennel Name, Call Name, My Last Name}.

I feel kinda guilty now since, at least on his dads side they had kept up such a continuous list of kennel names.

Oh, and I meant to add...LaurJen, I think Leap of Faith is a wonderful registered name!

Oh dear, why did you have to bring this up? I completely regret my dogs names.
1) Loewen's Princess Buttercup- from the movie Princess Bride. Now I'm regretting it because I plan to hunt with her, and I can just picture myself out in the reeds hollerin' at my dawg: "PRINCESS!!!!!!"

2) Atta Boy Macgyver- I wanted to use Macgyver, but I had to have more to the name, so I pegged on "Atta Boy!" since we said it to him a lot.....kinda tacky. Needless to say, we call him "Mac". But now I can never watch CSI:NY without picturing my dog.......
