    Bare in mind too the dogs name cannot exceed 30 characters.

    This includes the kennel name and spaces.

    So, "Kennel Sookie Loves Bill" would contain 24 characters.

    I love True blood - can't wait till season 4 to see what happens. I'd like to see Sookie and Eric live happily ever after.

    Sookie would be a cool name. Unique too.

    OK when you purchase a pup from a registered breeder, your pup will be registered by the breeder with the Australian National Kennel Council (ANKC) and you will be provided with a Certificate of Registration and Pedigree (most commonly known as pup's pedigree papers) which list your pup's pedigree including parents (Sire & Dam), Grand Parents on both sides and Great Grand Parents on both sides. There are two different types of Registration, a Limited Register and Main Register and majority of pups that will be pets only will be registered on a Limited Register. Pups that are destined for the show world and breeding will be registered on the Main Register.

    As part of that registration process, the breeder will have to provide a registered name for each pup and that registered name comprises of the Breeder's Prefix (their kennel name) and a name of their choosing, sometimes with the help of the puppy buyer(s) and this name normally is comprised of a theme. Example of this based on my youngest Lab who I purchased from Driftway Kennels and his registered name is:

    Driftway Charmed I'm Sure

    The prefix (kennel name) is Driftway and my breeders chose the "Charm" theme for naming the litter my pup was from as their mother's registered name is:

    Driftway Magnetic Charm and her father's registered name was Grand CH Driftway Magnetic Storm, so you can see that the theme "Magnetic" for my boy's mother (Dam) was also part of her father's (Sire) name (my boy's grandfather). The Grand CH before my boy's grandfather's name means Grand Champion as my boy's breeders show dogs and have many show champions in their lines.

    My boy's normal name is Tana and this is the name by which he goes by. His registered name is just that and is only used when his registered name is required and not for every day use.

    The names your breeder has asked for is to probably give them some idea for a "theme" for your pup's registered name and they probably will only use one of the names as part of that registered name. The name you choose for you pup doesn't have to be anything to do with the registered name.

    Hope that explanation helps and congratulations on picking out your gorgeous new pup. I am also a huge True Blood fan too.

    Thanks Labsrule. It doesn't seem like that from her email. She just said I need two names for her papers incase one is rejected and that's it. No suggestions or anything I'm so stumped as in what to do...this whole thing has confused me.

    Ok it sounds like breeder wants you to decide on the registration name of your pup and to give her two different options in case one is rejected like Crested_Love posted below. Also I have quoted another one of their posts below with regards to maximum no. of characters allowed in the registered name.

    Coming up with a registered name is part of the breeding process, so some breeders that want to include puppy buyers in the registerd naming process of their pup forget that when a puppy buyer is buying a registered pup for the first time, the puppy buyer is not always fully conversant with the whole Registered Name/Pedigree Papers process. The breeder can tend to confuse a puppy buyer new to the process by not outlining exactly what is they want the puppy buyer to provide them with. If you need clarification/guidance on what the Breeder wants, then just go back to them and say you are bit confused as to what they want and can they please provide clarification on exactly what they want as this is all new to you and you need further guidance. This might make them make it a little easier next time round for future newbie puppy buyers of their registered pups.

    A lot of breeders choose the registered name for their pups based on a theme like I described in my original post, so puppy buyers are in most cases, not involved in the registered naming process at all, a method I actually prefer. I find it is hard enough to come up with an everyday name for a dog, letalone their registered name.

    Quite often a name will be submitted and rejected so you need to have a back-up name.

    So you could have:
    "Kennel Sookie Lala" as your first preference and
    "Kennel Sookie Soda" as you second preference.

    It doesn't have to have anything to do with the pet name either. I have one whose name is "Kennel Get the party started" and his pet name is Brody.

    Well we can't decide. I think we will use Sookie for one name and DH has come up with Praline (sp?) like the Choc seashells? For the other so any suggestions for names for her??

    Praline is cute...and yummy... oh I get it, because she is a choc lab. LOL.

    I've always loved the name Evangeline. So hard to call out though, how do you growl at someone with a name like that? LOL.
