AKC Name idea - feedback please?

Hi all, I've been wanting to send in my registration for a couple months now and I just can't decide on a name.

I was thinking today about how rabbit-like Toby (and certainly most Havs) is when he's running/hopping around outside and I thought of "Wascally Wabbit."

What do you all think? Too silly? Should I keep thinking?

Thanks in advance!

That is cute. Another idea... I have a friend and her dog's name is Toby and I thought she came up with a cute registered name- chocolate, honey, and almond nougat. Like the Toblerone candy bar!

Well, since a toby is a sort of "mug" how about Glass Half Full for registered name? Or "Mug of Fun."

Nothing is too silly! In fact, sometimes the catchier the better. Is Toby going to be doing any AKC competition - conformation, agility, rally-o, obedience, etc.? If not, no one will ever see it except you and the health testing results, if you plan to do those.

Just make sure that you check your contract with the breeder to see if there are any requirements on the name (like adding her/his kennel name as a prefix).

Frankly, I think Wascally Wabbit or Wascally Won/One (something that just came to mind) is really cute.

Thanks for replying ladies.

Amanda, Darn! I like your friend's idea, but I wouldn't want to steal it.

Amy, interesting. I'll have to add for consideration. I'd completely forgotten about Toby mugs. How about Ugly Mug (as in face), but then call name as Toby sounds like a Jeopardy answer huh? "This is an ugly mug" "What is Toby?" LOL

Kimberly, I had checked w/ the breeder to make sure she wanted the kennel's name first and she said it'd be nice if I used it (though it wasn't in the contract).

Or how about "[Kennel]'s Mugshot"! That's interestingly appropriate because I study eyewitness memory/identification!

Ani, I think your ideas are fantabulous. I'd go with his personality or something funny and clever. Mugshot is cute, or Most Wanted

Oh, I think (kennel names) Mugshot is really cute since it says something about you too.
