Option A: You can choose one long name. It can be any random names in any order and many owners will make sure that the common name that they call their Yorkshire Terrier is in there. For example, the Yorkie name that your puppy is registered as may be: Rowdy Rocking Cowboy....And then Cowboy would be the name that you commonly call your pup.
Option B: You may choose to have an "also known as" in the official registered name. This is shown as the common "AKA". An example of this would be: Living Life To the Limit AKA Cuddles.
Option C: You can have numbers in the name if you choose. These can be Arabic numbers such as 1, 2 or 3...or you can spell them out. The first option would look like this: Smiling Each Day AKA Smiles 5. The other option would look like this: Smiling Each Day AKA Smiles Five. When numbers are used, it is most often done by breeders who will choose similar if not exact names for each Yorkie puppy, but then change the number that follows.
Can I Put Any Word Into My Yorkie's Name?
No. But almost! One of the most important rules is that you may not put the word "Champion" in the name. This is reversed for dogs who have won at AKC show events.
A Yorkie name cannot be simply "Yorkshire Terrier". No dog may be registered as the name of the breed that they are, or any other official breed for that matter.
Swear words are not allowed.
The following words are not allowed to be any part of a name (no matter how long or how short): male, female, bitch, stud, dam or sire.
