Might mean something in the show ring, means little if what you want is a sound pet. Confirmation showing is political. The more popular-sounding or "legitimate" sounding names gives headway. Other than "prestige", means nothing if you're looking for a pet or a sound K9.

Don't get caught up in names - look for the qualities you specifically need or want.
Are you kidding? They are just words in German, they have a meaning just like any word in English. It's doesn't mean anything other than the meaning of the word: from, of, or of the. There is absolutely no prestige attached to using a prepositional phrase, lol. Trust me no one walks into the show ring and get's a heads up because of the prepositional phrase in their dog's name!


The difference between von/vom depends on the gender of the noun in the prepositional phrase. The words mean the same thing but should be used correctly or you/the breeder looks pretty silly.

Mr Mister - Kyrie [HQ] - YouTube

It's actually a little more complicated than that. Each consecutive litter has its puppies names beginning with a letter of the alphabet.
Hans is from the "n" litter, so his registered name had to begin with an "n".
I chose Norden because it means "North" in German, and he came from north of where I live.
Hans is his call name-- what he is called at home.

So he is Norden Hans von Narnia, and quickly growing into such a lofty name, LOL.

It seemed too much at 9 weeks.

SQUEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEAL!! !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

eeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! WHAT A FACE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! And I LOVE HIS NAME!!!!

Yes, I LOVED the Mr. Mister song....but having been raised as a Catholic I remember the Kyrie Eleison as I was a child. I'm now Episcopalian (Anglican, really, but Episcopalian here since the Anglican church doesn't exist here, not really) but I have fond memories of the Kyrie.
Also, in Greek, it means "mister" so really, it's either lord or mister.

More than anything I love the sound of the words...kyrie eleison....

Anyhoo, yes, the name has been picked for quite a long time.

Most serious breeders have a kennel name that will be included as a part of the registered name of every dog they breed. Many breeders of European lines follow the European naming conventions that correspond to their lines. This is partly a nod to the breeding tradition of the lines they have, and partly to help people distinguish what lines they breed. A dog with an American sounding kennel name is likely American lines, whereas a dog with a German style kennel name is likely German lines.

There is a lot more to it than "status" or some sort of elitest attitude as one poster implied. And while I agree things like conformation showing are political, having a "legitimate sounding" name has nothing to do with it and the idea that names are picked for that reason is totally incorrect.

One valuable tool that kennel names and naming conventions, such as the alphabetical litter letter system used by the Germans and many German line breeders in the US, serves is to make research into the health and accomplishments of bloodlines and relatives easier. This is very helpful both for breeders and for those looking for a pup who wish to research the bloodlines.

No, Haus Juris is correct. Our kennel name is reversed as it is intended to be a play on words, not just a reference to our last name. If only referencing the last name Haus Wild would be correct grammar.
