Is there a reason it added all those funky shapes and letters? I’ll have to pester the AKC on that I guess, they’re not on her printed papers.

I don’t know how to even make those funky shapes, will she be deleted again if I don’t make the funky shapes?

Firelands Shepherds,

I sent you a e-mail on this.

Yeah, something's wrong with the AKC's site, then, because there's no way they would allow anyone to register a name with symbols in it.

@ QMan : Bob, you serious ??? Why on earth would anyone ever try to ban YOU (even once, never mind 3 times !).

Hundmutter no one tried to ban him, there's a glitch and the site is not working properly at the moment.

It seems they do allow the various symbols but do not put them on the Registration Papers.

American Kennel Club

Dog Name Check

Click below to determine if your dog’s name is eligible for registration. Choose the breed of your dog (names are breed specific), enter your last name, and what you would like to name your dog.

Dog Name Check

The person who owns the dog at the time the application for registration is submitted to the AKC has the right to name it. Names are subject to AKC approval and the following guidelines:

  • Name choices are limited to (50) fifty characters. Spaces between words, apostrophes and hyphens are counted. Note: An additional $10 fee will be incurred when more than (36) thirty-six characters are chosen.
  • All letters in a dog’s name are limited to the standard English alphabet. Diacritical markings (accent grave, accent acute, umlaut, etc.) are not printed on Registration Certificates in a dog’s name. When Registration Certificates are printed, all letters are capitalized.
  • A Registered Kennel Name cannot be included in a dog’s name unless its use is authorized by the owner of the name.
  • Roman numerals must not be included at the end of the dog’s name. The AKC reserves the right to assign roman numerals for identification purposes.
  • The AKC permits thirty-seven (37) dogs of each breed to be assigned the same name.
  • Words and phrases that may not be included in a dog’s name:
    • Champion, champ, sieger or any other AKC title or show term, either spelled out or abbreviated.
    • Obscenities and words derogatory to any race, creed or nationality or transliterations of such words.
    • Kennel(s), male, stud, sire, bitch, dam and female.
    • Breed names alone.
    • There are no restrictions on arabic (1, 2, 3), cardinal (one, two, three) and ordinal (first, second, third) numbers that are spelled out.
  • An imported dog must be registered with the same name under which it was registered in its country of birth, except for the addition of a Registered Kennel Name.

The name of an AKC registered dog may be changed provided the dog was whelped in the United States. Further, in cases where the litter owner(s) first individually registered the dog, the litter owner(s) written consent shall be required. A dog name containing a Registered Kennel Name cannot be changed without the written consent of the owner(s) of that Registered Kennel Name. However, no change in name will be recorded by the American Kennel Club after the dog has produced or sired an AKC registered litter or has received an award at an AKC-licensed or member event. Any name change must comply with all AKC requirements. You can download a Dog Name Change Authorization application from our Web site. The fee for changing a dog’s name is $25.00.

Sorry Mr Darcy, guess I should have added a smiley face or '/s' or something to that post; the question was purely rhetorical !

by hexe on 11 May 2018 - 00:05

Yes, the AKC does allow dialect symbols such as the "ã", but that's not a character in the German alphabet, so it sure doesn't belong in the German translation of the kennel name "Firelands".

But they most definitely don't allow the 'scarab', which is what that "¤" is called. The scarab is a typography character used to indicate an unspecified currency--either because the correct character for a known currency isn't part of a particular font, or because the type of currency isn't known. It isn't meant to be used as an alphabetical character in any language.

If that's how the AKC entered this dog into their database, they screwed up, and the dog's owner needs to contact them and get them to fix it--especially since that's not how it's printed on her registration papers.

Hexe, the dogs name is Nova Vom Feuerlã¤Ndern of what the AKC has on their site and it is not on the Registration papers as Firelands Shepherds mentioned.

In this case I think the ¤ was used in place of a symbol a punctuation mark. AKC does their own thing and I agree they should not have this on their website.

I've also been deleted Once  after I tried registering my deleted dogs twice.
I got this message like a day after successful registration then the pedigrees are deleted :
"Ooops, something was left behind at the vet
