Hi guys,

we are still looking for the "perfect" AKC name for our future puppy. It's gonna be a Golden girl! The breeder said that we have to choose a "to be registered" name and a calling name. That's awesome (!) but we are having a hard time finding the right one :(

How did you come up with the name for your hunting dog or did the breeder name your dog?

is there a "theme" for the litter? Do you have to have the kennel name in the registered name?

Sorry forgot to say that there is no theme and it has to have Tidewater's in it :D

I never thought this would be so hard...

what are some of your interests besides dogs? Sometimes it helps if you have a call name first too.

Take a look at the sire/dam pedigree for your puppy. You might get some ideas.

Don't really have many interests besides dogs hahaha.

I work with dogs all day long! The only thing I really like besides dogs is photography, dog photography to be exact :D So not sure if I could use that.

Father: Windrows Ducks in a Row "Rowan"
Mother: Tidewaters Lady of Leisure "Leia"

The calling names on our list are:

Jamie
Willow
Wendy
Josie
Sophie
Amy

but the registered name doesn't necessarily have to have anything to do with the calling name.

If anybody has more "calling" name suggestions is welcome to share them :)

Congratulations on your new pup!, especially a Golden Retriever :)

Something like Tidewater's Golden Girl (to paraphrase your description of her in the OP) and a call name to tie into that. Look at the names of both parents and see if you can use them to give her a registered name.
Welcome to the Golden side :)

If you wanted to go the photography route you could call her Tidewater's Picture Perfect... call name "Pic"

We're having to come up with a name for our new puppy right now, I feel your pain!

Picking a pup up this weekend. We came up with the name Ten Bears Welcome To The Jungle. Call name Axel. We had a lot of fun trying to come up with a name and thought of a lot but always came back to this one. Good luck!
