Default Kennel Name Help?

Okay, I have received much grammatical input from AbbyK9 so before I go on, I just want to say thank you!

But I feel bad about just bugging one person so I decided to post and see what you all think. I am trying to come up with/decide on a kennel name. I am down to these ones, and I'm going in circles What do you think is the best, and why or why not the others? Any and all criticism is welcome. Here are some of my ideas in no particular order:

Vom Eisenraben (iron raven -Two dogs who meant a great deal to me were named Iron Rail and Kobe's Nevermore aka "Raven")

Von Besessenheit (obsession)

Von Berauschend (intoxicating)

Von Fantasie (fantasy)

Vom Traumfänger (dreamcatcher)

I like the last one, it's cool in English, easy to say even if you don't speak any German, and how can you have a German kennel name without an umlaut?

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.

Where will the Kennel be located? My opinion is that the name should be easy to figure out how pronounce especially if you hope to get word of mouth referrals.

Liesje, that is a lovely name! I think when a name has meaning to you it makes it come alive.

I agree, which is why even though I love Besessenheit, I think if I said that to most people they would hand me a tissue. It will be in Pennsylvania.

Von Fantasie is probably the easiest to say.

Have you checked to make sure none of these are in use already?

Definitely, I've been diligent with that. I hope I haven't missed any, but I've searched google, ofa, pedigreedatabase and several different gsd kennel lists and they are all clear as far as I can tell.

None of them are in the SV SW database

vom Eisenraben or vom Traumfaenger are the only ones that I'd suggest. The others are just not... what I'd consider as a Kennelname (I'm a German as well).
