All 4 of my basenjis have call names that are related to their registered names. Maybe the registered name you or the breeder comes up with will help with the call name.
Bejeweled (registered) = Ruby (call)
Genesis Sui = Brando
Chosen One = Aaliyah
Black Sabbath = Ozzy
I'm partial to Oakley. Makes me think of Okey-Dokey, Okilly-Dokilly. I'll stop there. :)
Funny you should ention that, Kipawa !!! My Ochre, (pronounced O'Kar), has the above nick-names, as well as a few more… Okey-Pokey, Okar-Pokar, Miss Poke/r and a few others that I best not write here :D
I agree, I wait to be around a pup for a bit and then often pick a name that ties to the registered name;
FoPaw's Designated Driver "Sober"
FoPaw's Little Bit of Luck "Clover"
FoPaw's Oh My God "Odin"
FoPaw's Makes U Wonder "Stevie"
FoPaw's Lead Singer "Diva"
there are many more but these are a couple that come to mind, owners have picked similar matches. Jordan Reed has chosen some very clever names as well.
Atarasi D'Lucks Edition "Eddie" (Clover's brother)
Atarasi About Face "Sarge"
Atarasi All About Me "Mimi"
I love playing with names like this. I like Oakley myself but I think you'll be surprised to know exactly what his name is when you get him home.
Good luck with the new baby.
