AKC Name Help


I got my German Shepherd puppy, Hallie, about four months ago. I have high hopes for her in the future as far as using her as a working or sport dog, potentially even breeding her. The problem is that I have been holding out on filling out her official AKC papers because I cannot come up with any creative names that go along with her common name that are go with the German vibe, especially because my last name is Italian...Pulia.

I was just curious if anyone had any tips on how you came up with your GSD's AKC name. Also, any suggestions for H-Allie, not Haley...would be greatly appreciated

My dogs' registered names don't have anything to do with their call names. You literally can come up with anything you want. Some breeders have themes for their litters, others just want you to use their kennel name.

We had no theme for Carly's litter: Lauremi's No Reservations
Sage's litter had the letter "Z" in their names: Lauremi's Whim Z v Jakmar

~ Diane ~

SCARLET ..... Lauremi's Almost Wasn't
CARLY ......... Ch. Lauremi's No Reservations (AKC GCh pointed, HIC)
RUSSELL ..... Lauremi's Paix
and absent friends... SAGE ~ Lauremi's Whim Z v Jakmar ~ AKC major ptd, HIC ~ 2010-2015

You might want to ask the breeder for the protocol on naming. The registered name doesn't have to match the call name, or your last name, at all.
