    Still haven't decided on anything and it's driving me crazy because I want to make a webpage that I can showcase health testing records, titles and other accomplishments even if we don't breed in the future.

    Here are ones I like so far:

    Blue Zoom Koolies - obviously because of Zuma, I'd love to have her tied into this somehow.

    Kalyara Koolies - Kalyara means quick in Aboriginal Australian (problem is that it sounds/looks like a lot of other koolie names)

    Alacer Australian Koolies - Alacer is Latin for quick

    Something with Velox, which means swift in Latin

    Open to any other suggestions, I like things that mean quick, swift, excitement, etc. Words that describe winter or water would work too because we live in Minnesota. Pretty much anything that encompasses the koolie personality.

    You didn't list my favorite.

    ETA: Stop thinking ahead! I get hives every time I try to think of a kennel name!

    That's because it got veto'd when it was deemed "cutesy". Also, I'm a chronic planner, you know this. I can't not think ahead. The idea of not planning everything gives me hives.

    Zoomin Australian Koolies ?

    Would also make for entertaining kennel names without pigeonholing people.

    Zoomin Zip Tie
    Zoomin Bazinga!
    Zoomin Zoink
    Zoomin Spotty Tree Squirrel

    etc.

    Nivala = ice water

    Stiria = icicle

    Alsia = frosty, chilly

    Caeruleus = dark blue, the sky

    Aerius = blue, flying in the air, airborne

    Unda, Undae = wave

    I'll try to think of some more. It's been a few years since Latin class and I lost my dictionary.

    Well, Zoolie, obviously. Zoolie Koolies :)

    I do really like Alacer though, very classy sounding.

    :rofl1: Zoomin Spotty Tree Squirrel. I'm trying to not go for the cutesy side of Zoom, it's really tough to do.

    We don't have any rapids in our rivers unfortunately, just plain jane rivers and lakes.

    Oooo I like that!

    Ok, this totally made me laugh out loud and there was someone in the waiting room. Pretty sure I got a funny look.

    So many of these made my short list or so super close to one that was on the list:
    Aeolian Australian Koolies
    Tailwind Koolies

    I like Williwaw, love Whiteout, Rime is interesting!

    Someone come up with something that has Frost in it. First Frost? Frost Wind? I really suck at this.

    Home Page:
    Yuki Koolies (pronounced yoo-key, almost rhymes with Koolie, and is the Japanese word for snow)
    Calyx Koolies (okay this was mostly a joke, as a calyx is a structure in the kidney)
    Genki Koolies (pronounced with a hard "G", it's Japanese for "lively, enthusiastic, energetic". I'll stop it with the Japanese names now :D)


    Wait, what was your favourite? Just being nosy xD

    Love Frostline! I like the idea of Hoarfrost, but like you said, funny looks. Also, Frikkin made me laugh again, speaking of funny looks.

    I'm scared to use Japanese words because there are a lot of Japanese disc players and I would hate to be pronouncing it wrong and look like a dork. I love the idea of Yuki though!

    Keep them coming, you guys rock at this!

    Zoom Bye Koolies. Like "come bye" in herding but Zoom instead. It was called cutesy by a friend and ruined forever for me.:rofl1:
