|In German Shepherds, the registered name is usually something short and sweet, corresponding with the litter letter (the first litter the breeder produces are all A-names, the second B-names, etc) combined with the kennel name of the breeder. Titles are added on as the dog achieves them. Examples:
Dino vom Schaferliesel (call name Dino, bred by Schaferliesel)
Goldi du Chenil Belge (Call name Goldi, bred by Chenil Belge)
Some American show kennels use longer names, that don't include the dog's call name, such as Sonoma's Man'O'War Timberline (you'd never guess his call name is "Finnegan" from that registered name, bred by Sonoma, owned by Timberline, or possibly co-owned by both kennels, I'm not sure of the specifics.)
But since Shiloh is a shelter dog and you don't know her breeding, and presumably don't have your own kennel name, it might be a bit presumptuous to give her a fancy name.
It looks like USDAA doesn't really care about that anyhow, all their Hall of Fame listings only use the dog's call name, plus their owner's name.
