Naming help??Pic added pg2

We've been working on a name for the new boy for days now. Needs to be included is "Pequeno" since he's carrying the Y chromosome all the way back to Juan Pequeno, who is the first dog on anyones pedigree, and we just want to keep Pequeno in the name.

I had wanted to name him Don Juan Pequeno, but Pam just won't go for it.

The little boy has everything we could want in one, so the best we've come up with that looks okay for a registered name in Spanish, and with a call name we like is:

Starborn Pequeño y lo tiene Todo

, which translates to "small and has it all", with call name of Todo. Todo translates to "everything". We both like Todo fine. We like short and easy to say call names.

Any comments or suggestions are appreciated.

Thanks. We don't speak Spanish, and are just using Google translate.

How about "small with it all" Pequeno con Todo

Google Translate either has to add an s on pequeno or says it means "small yet". ?????

Pequeno con Todo means small with all... not really what you want to say. Maybe that's why google translate doesn't get it.
But Pequeno con Todo en ti... means small with all in you.

We're looking for something that sounds like the words flow easily when someone who doesn't speak Spanish hears it (and they can come close to pronouncing it correctly without effort), while still being proper grammatically in Spanish. small with all in you, sounds a little oddly phrased to us in English

maybe

Starborn Niño Pequeño con Todo

small boy with it all ( a little longer than ideal, but not bad) We actually like this the best so far.


or

Starborn Perro Pequeno con Todo small dog with it all

It's not easy.......

Not easy... Maybe there's another Spanish speaking member around here that can give more ideas. 'Todo' has it all...that's great. Where is the picture? haha

Thanks for your help!! We needed someone to bounce ideas off of.

Yeah, we're WAY behind on taking pictures. I'm already a couple of pages behind on our website. Nike is almost a year old, and she doesn't even have a page yet. We've said every day we need to take some pictures, but this has been a busy place for the past couple of weeks with several other types of projects going on in the area that people want our input on, and people in and out of our house day and night. Pam spends at least half her time on the phone.

Hopefully things will slow down some next week.

Awww I love your original name, Don Juan Pequeno!!!

I don't speak Spanish so I don't have any additional suggestions but just had to say that I think that Don Juan Pequeno would be a *great* name! (Especially if you are going to show him and then possibly stud him out... hahahaha )

Why not Starborn Pequeno Amigo (or would it Amigo Pequeno??).

I don't really speak Spanish...my family is from Portugal and that's what I'm fluent in, but it's pretty close to Spanish...I just don't really know the sentence structure of speaking Spanish...
