Jake was "No Fake Jake" because he was the real macCoy - LOL

Griffyn - I'm not sure yet but he will probably be
"Twisted Spell of Gryffindor" because I "twisted" round the Y in his name. ;)

Carson is going to be 'Liberty's Golden Nugget'. I've told this before but we wanted to have his parent's names in there somewhere. His mom's name is Jodee, but she's related to Pres. Fords golden Liberty. His fathers name is Nugget...so there you go.

Jazzy's registered name is
Dichi's All That Jazz ----- Dichi is the breeder and since her name is Jasmine and we call her Jazz her registered name came from the musical All That Jazz

Sunny"s registered name is Cin'mon Hill Roses In Sunshine. She was sitting in our dog run when I decided she did not at all look like a Rosie, which is what we had been calling her from birth. She was now 8 weeks old. The sun was shining and she became Sunny Rose - registered name Roses in Sunshine

Our pup came from Sunshine Goldens -- that's the breeder (wonderful place!!) And we liked the name Maya because we honeymooned along the Riviera Maya in Mexico. Hence, Sunshine Riviera Maya! We call her Maya, but the puppy stages are definitly NOT a honeymoon!!!

I had a couple call names picked out that I liked:

Quiz
Cash
Spin

... and I really like when the call name and registerd name go together. When I got Quiz, I'd been on the wait list for a Border Collie out of a litter in Chicago (Wildfire Border Collies). When the bitch was x-rayed, it showed that she was only carrying three pups and I was 4th on the list. I was going to name the BC "Spin" and register him as Wildfire Spin City which would tie back to my former life in public relations.

When the BC didn't happen, a Tabark Golden became my back up plan. When I met the pup now known as Quiz, he just didn't strike me as a "Spin". I really liked "Cash" and would have used Tanbark's Color of Money ("Golden" -- get it?) or Tanbark's Show Me the Money, but as it happened, the owner of the stud dog kept a puppy whom she named Cash. So then we were down to "Quiz". I was originally thinking he'd be registered a Tanbark's Pop Quiz but then I started thinking outside the box and decided I wanted Tanbark's Number Two Pencil, 'cuz you can't take a quiz w/o your No. 2 Pencil!

I have a little list of call/registered names on file for potential dogs...

Quick Draw - "Sketch"
Zero to Sixty - "Hot Rod" (has to be a Whippet!)
Off Road Adventure - "Jeep"
Art of the Deal - "Trump"
Black Tie Required - "Tux"

Thanks! I love coming up with call and registered names... especially when I can find clever ways to tie them together.

Oh - another fave on my list:

Moving Violation - "Ticket" or "Rush"

The kids of the kennel owner had named Miss Nikki "Nikki". Her Mom's name is Missa, so I called her Miss Nikki. Her registered name is Ruger's Rainbow Promise named after my first golden Reggie's Golden Gun Ruger. I got her after he went to the Rainbow Bridge.

We are naming our puppy Clover because my husband is Irish. Our last name is Clancy. I kind of want to come up with a Kennel name in case we do breed her after her clearances are done. We live in NC, hubby loves the tarheels, I watch Guiding Light and work for Robert Newman who plays Josh. We love the beach and we love the show 24. Those are just some ideas on things the name could come from. Any ideas, anyone?

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.

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.
