Hey guys!
Random opinion question.
I show performance horses, so I'm used to show names like "I Want That One," "TNT Prime Asset," "Heza Hot Image," etc. so I went the same route when registering Felix.

His registered name is "Dressed for Success," which has nothing to do with his kennel, his parents, or German! I just love it's rhyme, and Felix means Success in Latin. Plus, he has a little bow tie mark on his chest! (He's a sable, almost 5 months old.)

In your opinion, am I frowned upon for naming a German Shepherd something random, in English? Haha. :P I love his name and probably won't change it, I just like opinions.

Depends on what you do with him....and what his breeder was (ASL, BYB or Euro breeder)

I know what you mean about horses - so I understand that...I had Sheer Fantasy - dam of Sheerly Spectacular and Heir of Dreams.....

But do Euro working line dogs and follow the traditional SV (German style) naming protocals....

If you are doing IPO sport - the dogs all have the traditional type names and will get some head scratching as the name tells one nothing about the dogs background....if you are not doing anything competitive then it does not matter....if you do AKC Rally or OB - it still won't really matter...
