I guess that I've always found it rather humorous how pretentious-sounding registered names can become (especially if you have no intention of showing or breeding your fur baby). Thus, I've taken a couple of swipes at "the system" over the years.

My first AKC dog was a white german shepherd named, "Sparky's Purouvpah Rowdy." Long story short: Rowdy was a family name for our dogs (3 human generations of 'em); Sparky was a nickname at work; and "Purouvpah" was a funky spelling for pure-of-paw.

Lacey, on the other hand, has a simple name. After deciding on the name Lacey, it became Lacey Bloomers. I wanted to call her Lacey Underpants but my wife PG'd the PG-13 name. Of course, she's just Lacey around the house.

Gee, am I alone in finding humor in all this naming stuff?

Earl

Sir earl Simba got his name (Simba) from the daughter of the people I got him from and the Earl came from me being a Texas redneck and I just wanted to be able to say ---GET IN THE TRUCK EARL. The Sir just put a regal sound to it.

Good luck!

Our litters all have themes, and the registered name is given based on the theme, with call names having something to do with the reg name.
We really enjoy puns and play on words, so do a lot with that. I don't like pretentious names, either, so we tend to keep things humorous.

Hahaha

One of my favorite parts about being a spectator at a dog show, is buying the show catalog and reading all the registered names. I especially like people's ads they take out when specialling. I like seeing the registered name then seeing the twist in the call name. Some people are just so creative.
