What is the difference between z y vom von etc. in kennel names?
Working on a kennel name . . .

Why not choose a word or subject that means something special to you, and build a kennel name and your future reputation on that, instead of trying to sound as though you come from/von/vom Germany ?

I took German about 60 yrears ago, but which word is used depends on the gender of the next noun. This was discussed years ago, but the member gives a good explanation.

newbiegsd - I don't think that is correct. Z is used for all kennel names except those starting with "S"
For example ze Stasi but z Ceboku -
whoops this is czech kennel..... not slovak, but since once was one country, might still applie to Slovak.

'z' also gets used by some German kennels as an abreviation for 'zum'. An equivalent article as explained by Bob-O in that link Fantom posted above. (Like when 'v.' is used to give a short form of von / vom).

I forgot about noun gender and the associated articles and endings in non-English languages ;-)
I think I've figured out a name (definitely not pretentious), but now I need to do all the intellectual property and state paperwork. Paperwork. There's always more paperwork [sighing emoticon]
