Name the Litter Competition

Post by blufawn » Sun May 09, 2010 5:50 pm

I am not very good at thinking up themes for my litters so this time (just for something to do) I will let one lucky person name all my puppies.
Everyone think of a theme for Zuul x Jackal litter and I will choose my favourite 3 and then I will create a poll an allow the public to vote for the winner.
The winner can then choose a name for all the puppies once they are born in two weeks. :) They can also win a print of the puppies they have named (I will take a nice picture and print it on good glossy paper) and a Tamaskan badge.

Remember that the pups will need 'Blufawn' at the start of the name.

Have Fun and Good luck :)

Heehee. I've got lots of ideas for litter themes. Unfortunately I don't think I'll ever be able to use any of them. :( One of them was a Star Wars theme.
Ex. Blufawn Coruscant, Blufawn Nar Shaddaa, Blufawn Taris, Blufawn Tatooine.

Oh No! I wasn't going to say anything but that would be the Theme if/when we have a litter! With all the funny noises the girls make, Brad is desperate to have a Chewbacca in the family!

hmm this is hard... I have some ideas in mind but I want to use them myself.
What about an Inuit/Eskimo Gods theme:

Blufawn Akna
Mother goddess of childbirth.

Blufawn Aningan
The moon, brother to the sun whom Moon chases across the sky. Aningan has a great igloo in the sky where he rests. Irdlirvirissong, his demon cousin, lives there as well. The moon is a great hunter, and his sledge is always piled high with seal skins and meat.

Blufawn Keelut
Evil Earth spirit with the appearance of a dog.

Blufawn Sedna
Goddess of the sea and creatures.

Blufawn Torngasak
The good spirit, representing everything in nature good and helpful to man.

etc.

Rainy Pass? Better hope that one doesn't have a housebreaking problem! haha. Just teasing. I'm keeping some ideas to myself for the day when we have puppies--someday... *anxious*
Do you have favorite herbs or flowers? How about all the bunnies in Watership Down? Their names are cool: Blufawn Bigwig (just kidding). Hazel, Fiver (hey, that'd be cool if you had five pups!), Clover, El-eflayrah, Hysenthlae (spelling?), Silver, Woundwort, Chervil, Buckthorn (the smart one), Dandelion (the storyteller), Campion...
Or how about constellations? Blufawn Great Bear, Blufawn Orion, Blufawn Draco, Blufawn Cassiopeia, Blufawn Gemini, ...
But I bet there are cool placenames around where you live...what about those? That's how I came up with our kennel name: Hawthorn Ridge is a Girl Scout Camp that I went to as a kid. Beautiful place! haha.

I do like claireyclaire's idea :D

doesn't it need to start from the same letter ? Or is it only if the breed was recognized ?

No. They don't have to start with the same letter, they don't even need to stick to a theme, but it does make it easier for breeders to remember who pups are. We all know the little litter, the wolf litter etc so we can easily recognise which litter the pups are from, just by their names.

I have only had one Tam litter and that was X-Men themed.
Blufawn Wolverine
Blufawn Gambit
Blufawn Storm etc

It doesn't matter if I use the same theme as another kennel has before as my affix, Blufawn, will make it different.

In the past I have had 4 lhasa apso litters, a Virigina Andrews books litter (petals in the wind, flowers in the attic) a bernard cornwall books litter and a stephen lawhead books litter and the final litter gave only 1 pup who was called Blufawn Lone Ranger.

I also had a litter of Deerhounds based on Troy (achillies, ajax etc)
