do Geistvoll dogs get their names?
Starting with our very first litter in 1978, we have used an
alphabetical and thematic system to name litters. The first litter was
"A", the second "B", and so on. When we reached the
end of the alphabet in 1999, we started over with "AA". Geistvoll Adalbert Aufgehts
is an example of an "AA" dog. Double letter names are
difficult so some dogs will have a single A or B name even though they
come from a double letter litter.
In addition, many names are based on a special theme. Bonanza from the
"B" litter and Citabria from the "C" litter were
named after aircraft. Jim was regularly flying at that time.
In the "F" litter we have CH Geistvoll Fafner
and CH Geistvoll Fricka. Where would you guess these names come from?
If you guessed Wagnerian Opera, you would be correct. Fafner and Fricka
are the two giants that appear before Votan in the Ring of the Nibelung.
In the "G" litter we have CH Geistvoll Galena, CH Geistvoll Gallium,
and CH Geistvoll Glitter. Where would you guess these names come from?
Minerals was the theme used. Jim holds a minor degree from the Colorado
School of Mines in geology.
In 1992 the "S" litter was whelped. The theme was spices and
some of the names were: Saffron, Sassafras, Spice of Life, and
