KENNEL STORIES: THE CAMLOCH NAME
David Hansen

By Krista Hansen

In 1989, the same year we were married, we purchased our foundation bitch. The breeder of this puppy pointed out to us that this was the time to decide on the name we would breed under, our kennel name. She suggested combining our names, or using a name related to where we lived. Neither suggestion appealed to me. I wanted something authentic and special, something that spoke of the origin of a breed I loved. I purchased a map of Scotland and spent hours pouring over names of cities, landmarks, lakes (lochs), towns, etc. Any name that had a nice sound to it was put on a list. The list was then reviewed and narrowed down to one: Camloch. There is a Loch in Scotland by the name of Cam. Putting the two together resulted in Camloch, a name that was short, easy to pronounce and to my ear, had a ring to it especially when combined with the word Collies.
