    So we had picked a really cool reg name for our puppy, but..the breeder decided they wanted a specific word in it..so we are on the hunt for a new one and would love some ideas!

    So the litter theme is the spice litter. And the name has to have the word spice in it.

    Puppy's call name is Quinn. He is a red/white Ibizan Hound. Quinn means wise, or a counsel.

    So the name needs to be something along the lines of...

    kennel name spice of life, kennel name dreaming of spice.

    Any ideas?

    Too bad it has to have the actual word "spice", because otherwise you could use "sage", which is both a spice, and a synonym for wise.

    Quinn is handsome. I love ibizan hounds! So glad there's one on this forum to admire. :)

    Umm, the word "spice" is pretty limiting, eh? Random brainstorming:

    Twice the Spice / Thrice the Spice
    Spice(d) Right
    (With) Extra Spice
    Spice(d) Wisely

    It can have names of spices as well as long as it has the word spice too.

    I think i need to give you guys the kennel name to really come up with this name, cause the kennel name can make many names sound funny lol :)

    This is a mixture of 2 breeders so both kennel names are on it

    So the Kennel name is Aliki's Notanuff.

    Our original name was Aliki's Notanuff Thyme to Dream.
    I would really love to keep the word Dream in his name.

    im going to say that its a jerk, controlling, out of line move for the breeder to demand you name your puppy 3/4 to their choosing. "aliki's notanuff blabla spice" is 30 letters right there. so with the kennel name, and the word spice, you get a grand total of SIX LETTERS to use to name YOUR DOG. its reasonable to ask buyers to stick with a theme, breeders do it all the time. A names, or M names, or a theme of SPICES/HERBS would be totally reasonable, and give you a ton of fun leeway and wiggle room, you could even go into some far fetched stuff like spice brands or spice names in other languages, or latin plant/herb/spice names

    demanding certain words that pretty much take up all of your spaces? boooooooo

    /rant


    i vote for "he who controls the spice" but of course it wont fit

    Breeder didn't say anything about a limit on the lettering, I know that you can buy more spaces when you register. And we do not have to pay for the registering, the breeder does it, then AKC mails me the paperwork.

    Also I don't know how many people on this forum are in or near KY, but there will be tons of beezers in Louisville next month and we will be there with Courtney picking up our little boy :)
