Show Name Competition
With all of the shows that are either starting or being entered in, I thought it would be fun to start a competition that is based off of a pet's show name!
Why did you select the lyrics/reference that you did? Were there traits about your pet that prompted the name? Why is this show name appropriate for this pet, but not as well suited for others?
This will be relatively subjective as far as judging goes... but I'll aim to be as objective as possible!
2 entries max per person The pet you are entering must be your own You don't have to show this pet: but it does have to have a show name and you must include all info from the form That being said, tho, if you have show points/history/are currently entering your pet in shows, that could be a tie breaker or potential brownie points. Do not post a "BRB" to save your spot. The first 10 entries posted will be the 10 entries judged. If 10 entries were not reached by June 5th, then I will judge with the amount of entries I have received.
I will hex 2 hexed litters. Winners 1-5 will get 1st, 2nd, 3rd pick, etc. Everyone will receive a graphic award.
[image of pet (doesn't have to be in pose)] Call Name: Show Name: Why you picked this show name:
Call Name: Gavin Show Name: DS Goofy Ghost Why you picked this show name: I thought it was really cute and funny, to be entirely honest. "Gavin is a goofy ghost." Just made me happy to think about! 'Goofy' fits his personality for me. 'Ghost' comes from the prefix 'Deep Shadow' (it made sense to have something similar in his name) and, of course, his coat color.
Call Name: Amigo Show Name: GC Friend Til The End Why you picked this show name: He got his call name 'Amigo' from his breeder. It was really cute, and it fit well (most of my petz are for companionship while I browse the web), so I wanted his show name to be similar. Friend Til The End came to mind and it stuck. It rolls off the tongue, it's memorable and I'm so glad I chose it. Plus, what better 'friend til the end' is there than a pixel puppy?

I finally found these entries! These were in another show from over a year ago! I got these from Erica@Rome on PUGS and decided I'd use these old names I picked haha.
I also just realized I wrote this in the other show (it was a cute dog show), "I'm also bad with show names xD"
Call name: Abbs Show name: Rome's Scoobert the Mystery Dane Why you picked this show name: Really the only reason I picked this long ago is that Abbs is a dane and Scooby DOo is a dane. Both have similarly shaped faces and her muzzle is a similar color to Scooby Doo. Also since he hangs out with the mystery gang that explains why i put mystery dane
Call Name: Ingrid Show name: Rome's Eyes Like my Soul Why you picked this show name: Oh boy, this was an interesting choice of name xD I choose this because Ingrid is a dali with pure black eyes, and there's a joke about, "I like coffee black, like my soul" or just any other "as dark as my soul themed jokes." So since her eyes are black/dark, I went along with the "as dark as my soul" thing. And so her eyes are like my soul, which apparently I thought was black lol.
I love this idea for a competition! I too am bad at show names, but there are a few I have that have some meaning behind them, lol
Call Name: Aqualung Show Name: SGCh PH's Salvation a la Mode and a Cup of Tea (30 pts) Why you picked this show name: Aqualung's call name comes from the song of the same name by Jethro Tull. I'd post the link but it puts the entire video into the comment, urgh. :/ The first minute or so and the last minute and a half of the song are very rough and harsh and tough to listen to, which is the point of the song if I understand it correctly, but if you skip to about one minute in the more lyrical, gentle part of the song starts. There are so many amazing lines in this section of the song, and my favorite is the line "salvation a la mode and a cup of tea". I've given another petz a show name from the lyrics of this song, and I could probably do the same for five other petz. But Aqualung here has my absolute favorite line, plus of course he's the one who's named after the song.
Call Name: Rosch Show Name: SGCh Flummery/PH's Love Sucks, I Threw It Up (34 pts) Why you picked this show name: When I was in college, we had a comedian/musician come to the campus one evening who put on a show for those of us who attended. At one point during his show, he had us play the game where one person writes a sentence on the top of a piece of paper, the next person draws their interpretation of the sentence and folds the paper so that the original sentence is hid, the next person writes what they think the drawing is and folds and hides the drawing, and so on. After we had done this, he sung a song with the kind of bizarre result of that telephone game we had. We somehow went from "I love my grandma" to "Love sucks, I threw it up." It's been years but I still remember exactly how he sung that weirdly perfect line. It's stuck with me ever since. It seemed like the perfect show name for a cranky alley cat, wouldn't you agree?

commander the game that you mentioned in the description of Rosch is pretty cool! Pulling off that kind of song sounds hard, though it would be a fun way to make up a story (which I'll have to try now).
And Jess @ PRU don't forget about your show since it's been a week from June 5 (though just passed June 11 I think lol).
Edit: tagging Jess @ PRU one more time in case you see this, but if the show isn't judged in the next day or two we'll ask for someone else to judge (since it's past the end date).
gingerade: And welcome new and returning members! ^^

Thor: Oh no I have 44 profile notifications now-- I found a method to my showing madness but it makes notifications like crazy! I wonder if there's a way to turn off certain ones in settings haha

Arie: Thor, it should be possible to disable notifications per (sub)board! I know I've done it before.
Mar 30, 2021 14:37:35 GMT -5
Thor: Ooo thank you Arie! I'ma try this and also welcome new folks!! Nice to meet you

Alex@Marvel: So I decided after (I don't even know how many) years of Gotham being my prefix, it's now Marvel. ^^ I felt like it was time for a rebranding.

Gray Dragoness: I really wish eyelids were based on the main coat color... or just all black, either would work for me
May 15, 2021 7:08:00 GMT -5
Alex@Marvel: I don't forsee me ever going away from my Sammies, Thor, but I am still searching for the right cat breed so technically yes?

Cherry-Spot: Oooo rebrandings are cool
