Personally, give the registered name a try.

My pup's name is Arraka... she is named after her sire Arrak. I'd judged several dogs out of his father, judged him, and he was the reason that I picked a pup from that particular litter. I'd told his owner that I'd really be interested in a pup if she bred him.

It was fortuitous, because I still count him among the top 1, 2 or 3 DD males I've ever seen.

Second, try to pick a name starting with the same letter as the litter... my first DD was registered as Emma. We picked Elsa.

Third, look at the diminutive of the registered name... some German names are tough sounding but the diminutives have a neat sound, for example:

Adolph becomes Dolpho,

Brigitta becomes Gitta,

Brunhilde becomes Hildi,

Josef becomes Sepp,

etc., etc.

Last, pick a name ending with an "a", "o", or"i", I think that dogs respond to the sound a little better.

Good luck, have fun,

I like one syllable names that do not sound at all similar to one of the common used OB commands e.g I would never name a dog BO because it sounds just like NO. I have had a Gus, Fritz, Zack, Rip, Zeb, Mack, Hank, Sam, Jack and now Spud.

Of all the ones I've heard, my favorite was a lab puppy named by a 3 year old boy. " 'ol biter" cause she likes to bite.

I used the registered name as I could not come up with anything else. He was a C litter so his name was Cabo. Actually they misread the breeders handwriting and put him down as Cobo.

Best name ?
Try "Dammit"..........Because you'll be saying, "SIT Dammit", "HEEL Dammit", "HERE Dammit" etc.

Yup, I'm all for "dammit" or "sh@t head" because those certainly will become his go to names.
I just hate seeing birds die of natural causes unless I'm that natural cause.

Can't go with "dammit" last HZP I ran the judges thought my pup's name was "Good boy".

Couldn't even say anything with this one because I was crying. She left nothing on the field...

+1
It also depends on the name of the other dogs I have at the time. I try not to have the 2 names sound alike. I will go 2 syllables sometimes but they get chopped. Stormy gets called Storm a lot. Also has to be something I'm willing to yell in public..... My family once wanted to name a puppy Romeo. I told them he was 'Buck' or we weren't keeping him. Buck was with us for quite a while.
