Awesome, those are my favorites anyway! Thank you for your input. Since you speak German, can I ask you what I would do about traumfänger, because obviously when I get a domain name I will not be able to use the umlaut in the url. So should I just leave it out (traumfanger) or do I spell it traumfaenger in the url, and just use the umlaut when I can? Is it interchangeable? Not sure how to handle that if I use that one.

if it's not taken yet, I'd use traumfaenger or vom-traumfaenger or zwinger-vom-traumfaenger, zwingervomtraumfaenger, vomtraumfaenger, traumfaenger-german-shepherds, traumfaengershepherds...

any of these would probably work BUT to make it easy for Americans I'd use traumfanger instead of traumfaenger.

What's the difference between "von" and "vom?"

I tend to prefer the names that are preceded by vom.

Okay, how about www.vomtraumfanger.com? So you're saying just leave out the umlaut on the url and the "e", right? I like that better anyway, simpler. But I will still use the umlaut in the text on my website because it's awesome

I like vom better too. Even though it isn't really just a matter of opinion . . . it actually depends which gender the noun is . . . feminine gets "von" and masculine/neuter gets "vom"

Yes, that is perfect. I'd get that registered right away before somebody else snatches it away. And yes, It's simpler for the english speaking population, so I'd leave it at traumfanger

Okay, I bought the domain name. So the web address is mine anyway, but how do I register the name so no one can take it from me if I haven't had any reg'd litters yet? Is there any other way to claim it if you haven't started breeding yet?

I like vom Eisenraben or vom Traumfanger best as well. I agree the meaning of the other names just doesn't seem appropriate for a kennel.

While I like the sound of the second, if it were me I'd probably go with the first due to the special personal meaning.

Also keep in mind that that umlaut won't just be a problem with website addresses, but also on AKC papers. You can't use an umlaut in AKC registered names, so you'll have to either leave it out or turn it into ae, which can get confusing to people when they see two different spellings of the same name.

So I don't have much input on the Kennel name, but I love Big Star! I have a cottage up there I bought from my Aunt a couple of years ago. My parents have a cottage up there...all my summers have/are spent up there! I just stopped up their yesterday to drop a trailer off, they got quite a bit of snow up there! I love your Hypothetical kennel name

I am friends with a German college professor and we were making up hypothetical kennel names for me, mine is "zum Großen Sterne". Ever summer my family goes to Big Star Lake which we just call "Big Star" (everyone drops the "Lake"). It's my favorite place ever, very important to me so I wanted that as my hypothetical kennel name and that's what he came up with. He said place names can use "zum" and adding the "e" to "Stern" makes it sort of old fashion dative noun.
