Hey guys I know some do it by pedigree and kennels but how do others pick out a formal name.
I've picked out the name Tripp as the call name for my 8 week old Boykin in picking up tomorrow. It's a male. Dad's name is Covey and moms is Lilly. He's from Athens and we've got to make a road trip from Savannah to pick him up so hence the Tripp part but figured I'd be formal with it and make a full name.
Any suggestions? We pick him up tomorrow. Super excited to get him!

Some breeders like / want / insist that their kennel name be included in the name that will be registered with the AKC / UKC. So that may give you a start to work in Tripp off of that.

Boykins are a ton of fun to name - because of their color, their size, their "turf" and not least their coat.
You could always match Tripp up with something like "Once You Go Brown You'll Never Go Back" or "Touchdown Jimmy Brown Goes the Distance" - I personally have always had a football motif with Boykins thus Bear Bryant's S.C. Biscuit and Brown Dog Blitz etc.
Be imaginative and have fun at it - and if you're thinking about having your Boykin run hunt tests, where its name will show up on Entry Express and in HT catalogs, be extra imaginative at putting a formal name on it.

When I first got an AKC dog I was where you are. I was unawatre of the "tradition" of putting the breeding kennel name in the pups registered name. SO I came up with my own.

Winterhawk came from an outfitter I ran into while elk hunting in Colorado.

I found a formal name for my dog by going back through some of the great outdoor writers books, articles etc.. My guys name was Kinkade (kennel name) Gunners Dawn (an outstanding book by one of the greats: Roland Clark) Riley (call name). Just how I did it...

Some kennels want you to, some only will give it to approved pups. Both my males I went with hunting Names that matched there call name.
