HINTS WHEN CHOOSING A NAME:

- Remember that every goat has a limit of 35 characters/spaces for its name including the herd name. Try to keep your choice short so that you will have plenty of room to give the goat the name you wish. A herd name of 15 spaces or less is a good size.

- Be very creative when you come up with your name. We cannot issue duplicate or sound alike names. If you have Farm, Pygmies, Acres, etc at the end of your name remember that EVERY goat registered will have that as part of its name.

- Most prefixes are now 3 characters long (letters and/or numbers).

- Many of the prefixes which spell something or end in P, A, or F are already taken.

- If you include a number(s) in the prefix you have a much better chance of finding one you like.

- If you do not care what the prefix is, you may leave that spot blank on your Herd name application and Central office will come up with one that matches as close as possible to your initials or the herd name(s) initials. You may email, or call Central Office to check on the availability of your choice prior to submission of this form.

HERDNAME DISCLAIMER:
Members must be aware that trademark laws protect some herd names from infringement. As a service to our members, NPGA screens applications for obvious potential infringements and will refuse to register them. However, trademark laws and their interpretations vary and we cannot be responsible or liable for trademark infringement. Any publication of trademarks or herd names found to be infringing is inadvertent and unintentional. Members are urged to contact legal advice prior to submitting a herdname for registration.
