How Did You Pick Registered Name?

For those of you who have registered your dog with the AKC or other organization, what name did you choose and how did you come up with it?

We hadn't gotten around to naming Augie because we couldn't think of a good name. My husband thought maybe "Augustus" should be part of it, but that was pretty limiting. So we made some lame attempts and basically did nothing The other day I said, "You know, you like Bruce Springsteen... let me pull up an online list of his songs and we'll pick one." So that's how Augie got to be:

Chien D'Or's Leap of Faith

For us--we gave Julie a mixed name reflecting her parents names--Her father's name was Sir Maxwell Cox-and her mothers was Lady AnJuly -- ergo the name Lady Julia Maxwell. Of course that is a mouth full so we just call her Julie.

I wanted a name that would fit in with Chase's parents names, "At Your Beck N Call" and "Push Comes to Shove". My girlfriend and I tossed names about, I asked for ideas on forums (like here), and went through baby name websites. Finally one night my GF and I were chatting on Google Talk and Chase came up as a good choice...then it was a matter of finding a few words to match. "Cut to the Chase!" was perfect because it even throws in a bit with my favorite pastime, watching movies.

It came to us quite easily, actually. When I first went to pick out a puppy, they were all running around and one came up to me so I picked him up, then he fell asleep almost instantly.

My mom said "aw look, he's all tuckered out now"

And voila... there was his name and registered name

We didn't choose a special name for Shadow. When the papers came back someone nicely named him "our last name with 's, Shadow. When we re-registered Tucker, we just included the breeders kennel name and his name is Broadway's Tucker (and our last name). Not very original at all. However, we do have a funky lastname.

When we got Dusty I knew I wanted to give him a "weather name"....so far in our lives we have had stormy, mistie, rainy, sunni.... As the first boy we came up with Dusty.....we live in kansas....which always seem to have a wind blowing....hence...Dusty Kansas Winds.

We kinda just picked names out of the air. Hailey was already named when we got her.

Jake Be Darned
Dixie's Golden Sunrise
Sweet Scent of Jazmine
Sweet Hailey Rose

Money will buy you a pretty good dog, but it won't buy the wag of his tail.
