If your dogs had registered names...

What would they be? :D And why?

Just a fun thread to daydream a little bit, about all our mutts (or not!) having those fancy-smancy registered names. ;) Who knows, with the new AKC Mixed Breed performance events, we might all find ourselves actually using these names sometime!

I'd start my registered names with the name of my homestead/farm, which is Hoof and Howl Farm. I know this a carryover from kennel/breeder names and sooooo not necessary for a speutered dog, but hey! It sounds "official" and cool!

So here we go!

Willow - Hoof and Howl's Amazing Grace - her name in her previous life was Grace/Gracie, and I think "Amazing Grace" fits because she is so blessed to still be around, having been pulled from the pound just hours before being euthanized. (Plus, I must have a lot of grace to offer her because I continue to live with such a spazzy dog. LOL!)

Bandit - Hoof and Howl's Heart Bandit - does it have to get any more obvious? Bandit has wrapped his paws into my soul unlike any other dog I've known. Since getting him I have learned the real meaning of a "heart dog".

Jasper - Hoof and Howl's Jazz Music - his nickname is Jazz or Jazzy, and he indeed makes beautiful music (howling!) so it fits nicely! Plus, it's kind of like improv jazz, living with this boy. You have to be able to think on your feet and go with the flow - with Jasper it's like one big dance and requires a lot of creativity.

So what about all of you? I can't wait to hear everyone's ideas and reasons! I think we'll learn a lot about each other's dogs this way too.

Neat idea for a thread. Lacey's registered name is Soluri-Bournes Lacey Von Heike...and boy that's a mouthful.
Lily, I have no idea...I think it'd be hard for me to pick a name I'd stick with, since we end up moving so much.
keep in mind that AKC opnly allows 35 Spaces for letters and spaces
How about if our dogs do have fancy smancy registered names?

My current dog is:

Call Me Work N Some Magic

Call me = Kennel name

Work N = is taken from his grandfather, Olman's Work N Class Man

Some Magic = ties into his call name.


Previous dog:
Call Me Desperado Blue Ace

Call Me = kennel name

Desperado = tied into his call name of Bandit

Blue = he was blue in color

Ace = no reason it just sounded good at the time.

Frankly some of my dogs going back a bunch of years I would have to think hard or look up their registered names. I remember all the call names though.

First dog I named.

I got him for Christmas when I was seven. Named him myself. Funny I can still remember sitting at the dining room table with my father filling out the AKC paperwork.

That dogs name was:

John's Lad with a call name of Laddie

As I got older I tended to call him Lad.

I had to put him to sleep on my 21st birthday. Funny how life goes.

Nell is already registered, Whiteroad Nell
Not sure what I would have for Chloe.
As for Sonny, he's going to be Sonny de-Light, because he's so bright and cheerfull all the time.
I have always tried to come up with something fun for Bridgette, but never have.

I read somewhere (kennel name's) Jedi Knight and the call name was Luke. Also (kennel name's) Pocket Change and the the call name was Penny. Those always stuck with me because they're really fun!
My dogs' AKC registered names are:

Carousel's Devine Design
Call name: Madoline, or Maddy
aka The Diva, The Devine Miss M

Britmarc's Grand Slam
Call name: Beau

Aris Total Eclipse of My Heart
Call Name: Lucia

And Luc, well, he's just Luc! (French spelling for Luke) His previous owner got him from a puppy miller, and was "registered," but not w/AKC.

Lucy is registered with the CKC as Avalonia Martinique.

I don't know what Ursala's registered name would be. Once I get to know her better I may well come back to this. :)
Harry is registered with the british kennel club name of ( I didn't choose it :) )... Beautiful Farrah Princess
That's an easy one. Max would be Maximum Overdrive. Pretty self explanitory. LOL
Past dogs:
Blue (a collie): Blue Shadow's Highland Blue. Blue Shadow was the sire and he was a blue merle collie.

Misty, a Keeshond: Misty Dawn of Gyzalaar. she was my pet store dog. The name was due to her coloring and the breed's foundation.

Brady, Collie: Sun Country Beau's Cabaret. Sun Country was the kennel name and Beau the sire.

Shane, Collie: Sun Country Snowy River Snowy river was part of the breeder's theme that litter

Major, a GSD Malamute mix: I'm not sure but maybe I'd have named him something along the lines of "I am not a wolf" LOL. With his long legs and amber eyes people often though that he was a wolf.

Up coming pup *fingers crossed* will either be "StarFire LoupGarou Gratia Plena (Grace) or StarFire LoupGarou Our Gang Comedy (Rascal) depending on which sex I end up getting. This pup will be a Toy Fox Terrier. If a girl, grace is after her Grandmother. And, if a boy, it's to be named based on the breed's personality.:)
my rottie I had to just put down's registered name is
Gretta Kathleen roman King
My doberman's registered name is
Zeus roman's King
We only get 16 letters for racing names. So far the only pup I've named is Fast Fluffy. Fluffy is used as a "generic" name when talking about a random/unspecific racer and I always knew I'd name my first racer fluffy-something-or-other. I liked the aliteration of Fast Fluffy.

Our second puppy I hope to name Battleship Bob or Runnin Recon in honor of my dad...but we won't submit names for another few months.

Our other dogs already have names and I use their racing names for their performance names in case anyone wants to look up their lineage:

Pin Oak Halley - the racing owner names their dogs Pin Oak <something>
Crunchtime Casey
U Too Navy Blue - the racing owner names all their dogs U Too <something>. I'm guessing the "Navy Blue" part is because she's a blue greyhound.
Fast Movin' Mary
Jetabb Catfish - racing owner names all their dogs Jetabb <something>. This litter happened to be named after different kinds of fish.
KGB Bonnie Girl - racing owner's initials are KGB.
Dana's Black Ink - Part of her mom's name (Grand Dana) and her color (she's black)
Tame Rocky - Part of his dad's name (Tame Game)
Lightning Lee - Part of her dad's name (Brett Lee)
Denim Days
Rights to Riches
My Queen Theresa
Da Big Guy

Actual Registered Names:

Shundo's Renegade: call name Reno

Contessa Vom Mittlestadt: call name Tessa

Vom Mittlestadt's Jazz Man: call name Chazz

If he were registered, I might choose...

White Knight to the Rescue: call name Buck
Let's see...registered names:

Evensong Prometheus (Sweep)
Wabana's Bit O'Spring (Bibby)
Bearstream Am Bernard (Viggo)
Evensong Little Bit O'Soul (Caillou)
Evensong Katmandu (Sparrow)
Tavlsborggaard's Estrella (Cakey)
Berncroft Blue Pirate (Pearl)
Lyneholme Muddy Ghillie (Ghillie)
Berncroft Early Morning Rain (Penny)
Evensong No Regrets (Jack)
Rondix Yazoo (Basil)
Fall Flight's Southpaw (Lefty
Fall Flight Touch 'Em All (Spike)

The only one we didn't get to name was Viggo, who came with that name. Our other imports (Basil, Cakey and Ghillie) had litter themes but we had some input. Anyone with Wabana, Evensong or Berncroft were bred by us, and the Fall Flight boys are Viggo's youngest kids.

My dogs have registered names:

Mudville's Edendale Slugger (Toby) - I'd change this one in a minute if I could. He'd be Edenrock's Tahoe Blue or Edenrock's Tobias Rufflebutt.

Keepsake's Take a Chance (Cameron)

Both dogs came from the Edenrock kennels although neither one has the Edenrock name. I really like the breeder. So if I could change their names they'd both be Edenrock.
Their names with the AKC are just:

Belle Arina G_______
Penny Candy G_______
Mine have registered names as well

Registered name: Hide your heart
Call name:Eli

(think 1970's rock--three dog night song)

I've got two of each.

Registered Names:
Jaia - RaJaia Vom TeMar
B'asia - Velma Vom TeMar

Dream names for the other two:
Cara - Enchantment Villa's Carmelita - We live in a small New Mexico town and we often call her Carmelita.

Mia - Happy-Go-Lucky Zia Mia - She is the happiest dog I have even known and the Zia Sun Symbol is on the New Mexico Flag and it rhymes with Mia.
If Matrix had a registered name it would be (imaginary kennel name) Decipher Me.
He was supposed to be a guide dog, but was disqualified as he has epilepsy and hip dysplasia, so he doesn't have a kennel name.
