I've been thinking a lot about barn hunt and the closest trials I've found are about 3 hours away in NH on June 11th. So I want to try to sign her up for those and see how it goes.

I think the first step would be registering her with the Barn Hunt Association.

I have no idea what to do for a registered name!

I'm also hoping to compete in agility at some point in the next few years, so I'll have to register her for that too, if that makes a difference at all.

She's a rescue so no kennel name or anything.

She's a toy fox terrier. Pretty crazy, high energy, high prey drive.
My boyfriend came up with her name from the Grateful Dead Song, "Brown Eyed Women" and I also like the song "Hey There, Delilah" by the Plain White Ts. We call her Delilah Jones and Miss Jones a lot, after the Grateful Dead song. Idk if that would be a good registered name though.

Lol if anyone has any creative ideas that come to mind after reading this thread, please share! I got nothing.

can't you just register as Delilah? I like that name.
are there some special customs when it comes to registered names?

@mathilda I don't know, maybe I could! But that's technically her call name, and I think they have to be different. Like you know how show dogs have the long fancy names but then they have a shorter normal name they call them?

It's to differentiate between individual dogs, otherwise there'd be thousands named Jack or Sophie or Harley and that would get confusing! So the longer registered names are for competing and breeding so that every dog has a unique name.

I have to say whenever I read a post about her I am mentally singing "Hey there Delilah" in my head. Lol.

Delilah its what you do to me
Lil' Miss Brown Eyed Girl
Lil Miss Jones
Ms Delilah Jones

I'm not very good at coming up with registered names.

I'm terrible at coming up with names. I'm glad Levi's came with him :p

I like @jclark343 's suggestion "Lil' Miss Brown Eyed Girl"

I like the Hey There Delilah or another like from that song personally.

@mathilda it is sort of a custom to have a long fancy name for dog shows or sports. It's not necessary but the fancy names make it so there aren't 36 Jacks or Bellas competing in the same trial. Or even in past shows. I don't know if it's different in Germany but typically with purebreds they have to have their kennel or mom/dad's name first to dictate lineage and family connections and then their individual name. So even if it is simple it could be 'Woodland's Jack' and then 'lightning Jack.' For Stella's registration I used her shelter name first.

My boyfriend really likes the "Brown Eyed Girl" idea- he suggested "Brown Eyed Woman" but I told him I'm not calling a dog a woman. She can be a girl, lady, or bitch. lol

He also suggested "Jonesy Girl"

I'm leaning towards "Brown Eyed Girl"

Yeah, I might add something else to the name to make it a little more unique!

She doesn't have a kennel name so I'm not sure what I could put in as a prefix type thing like a lot of dogs have.

Another idea I had is "Every Simple Song" or "A Simple Song"
Part of a line in "Hey There, Delilah"
"If every simple song I wrote to you
Would take your breath away
I'd write it all"

Back in the 1980's there was a song called 'Modern Day Delilah' : )

But in sticking with the more biblical theme to that name.

What about something like:
Shears
Betrayer
Temptress
Wicked Woman
Sweet Talking Woman (also references a ELO song...lol)

Alright, I think the finalists are:
Brown Eyed Temptress
Lil Miss Jones
Every Simple Song

I'm really leaning towards Lil Miss Jones- it's the simplest but I think it suits her the best.
