I thought it would be fun to ask a question and see what kind of answers people have. I'll start. The question is, what made you choose your kennel name on SD? Is it your RL kennel? Symbolic of something? A name you made up? What does your name mean to you?

I chose this name because the first English words I remember reading were on the sign for an obedience school with a beautiful black GSD. The name of the school was Paws with Poise. I learned how to train dogs there, but unfortunatly, the owner retired and has since passed away and the school no longer exists. I thought the name was fitting for a group of show dogs. happy :)

Mine is the username I used on websites when I was a teenager. I didn't understand that the username was the kennel name at the time, so now I'm just stuck with a weird kennel name. Too late to change it now! haha.

My first paid account I shared with a friend, I didn't have a dig at that time so we used part of her fab dogs registered name that account was PrincePompade with an affix of PP

Eventually we ran out if room to both breed our own breeds how we wanted so I got a new account for myself and moved my breed over so I called my account PPVallhunds PP so I could still keep the affix

Little Sureshot" was Annie Oakley's nickname and I had always planned to do Britts in the game so I wanted something for gundogs that reminded me of sharpness and accuracy.

In addition to Paws with poise, I also have this kennel, which is my last name and Calibre K9, which is my RL training business. I chose it because I think it's a cool name, and I want to train dogs to the highest calibre. happy :)

I live in Washington DC and I came up with my name based on the "Little River Turnpike" which is just outside of the city. It sounded interesting, so I went with that! Little River Kennel.

Boodie (BOO-D not BOO-TY razz :p) is my childhood nickname that my family still calls me. My mom said it looked like I didn't have a butt when I was a baby so she came up with the best name.? I still question her naming skills lol.

My original kennel was named after a favorite pet (Laffy-Taffy Kennels).

The other paid account I had before that is hugely in debt is .Troubadour. cause I am in love with the Country singer George Strait.

As for current ones...

Y'all are gonna laugh but I got back into SD so I had something to occupy my time til my fiancé returns home (he's serving a 2 year mission for our church and is nearly 4 months into it) and my wedding dress is lace. Lol

And then .Alexandrite. was my Afghan prefix so I decided to move all my Afghans so they could have their own kennel. Contrary to popular belief it wasn't a spin on my name (Alexandria) it's a stone that changes color depending on the lighting which I thought was so neat.

LD Winners, my basic, is just an abbreviation for Lace Dreams. It was honestly the first name I could think of lol.

I've had the prefix Amethyst since I started breeding Dachshunds...it's my birth stone and my favorite gemstone.

Alexandria

You took too long to type and got logged out.
SD no longer remembers who you are but accepts the post anyway and you become the anonymous basic (lol).

Happens a lot.

Pearl City - A nickname for the city/street (well the street is called Queen City, but I dub it "Pearl City"wink ;) I grew up in. I kinda pinned the nickname among my friends and it's stuck. It's so crazy. I no longer live there but damn.. My teenage years were wonderful and I appreciate everything and everyone in that damn city. It made me who I am now. I was a freshman in high school when I made an official kennel and Pearl City just made sense..

The rest of the kennels that I have, I was taking care of them and eventually they were handed to me. I didn't have a choice in the naming. i.e Shadowstorm Kennels and its junior.
