When I started I used silly names. And I didn't care if they were inbred.
Now I'm hooked on low and/or even gens, some I breed from AP catches others from CBs I caught. The CBs I now name after their codes. Everything that follows will get names after their parents, if at all possible.
But I also have some projects going, so the naming there is different.
Examples on my scroll:
http://dragcave.net/lineage/nPHs the green is from the AP, the CB pink named after the code (and yes, I made a gender mistake with the pink...)
http://dragcave.net/lineage/c4nh found on the AP
http://dragcave.net/lineage/SeHH the two white 2nd gens and the pink 3rd gen found on the AP
http://dragcave.net/lineage/7LIL named after the father and grandfather
http://dragcave.net/lineage/K0Xt not much choice here...
http://dragcave.net/lineage/D85j found on the AP
http://dragcave.net/lineage/rp8S love this one, found on the AP
http://dragcave.net/lineage/AJn8 both 2nd gens found on the AP
http://dragcave.net/lineage/63to looks like a spelling mistake :-)
http://dragcave.net/lineage/9tB4 found on the AP, thinking up a project for this with whites and valentines maybe?
I have many more 2nd gens like that, I collect whites from CB white and metal or valentine or Christmas, you get the picture...
And one of my dog forum friends whom I introduced to dragoncave is continuing my ideas for naming. These two of hers:
http://dragcave.net/lineage/aicg She found this one on the AP and just had to name it like that, several siblings are also named after the theme
http://dragcave.net/lineage/hFV1 here she just stopped the naming scheme for the vamp. The 3rd gen red, vine and autumn and the 2nd gen winter she got from the AP, just the two purple CBs are hers. Unfortunately it's sibling that went on the AP died.
