    I asked my 6 year old son what he wanted to name our current chessie. We got Axle.
    My previous chessie, I went historical. There are 2 dogs associated with starting the chessie bread. Sailor and Canton. Named on the ship ride across the Atlantic. She was a female, so I had Canton.

    You can use any call name that strikes your fancy!! Short single syllable names are great - especially if they don't resemble any command word you might plan on using!! I have had Pal, Pip, Cricket, Pokie, Kako, Deuce, Sapa, Chip, Buck, Brandy, Gator, Lady, BB, - they all worked!!

    The way I did it was come up with a call name (Remi) then I just registered him on AKC with a placeholder name (you can change it once now). Then I waited to see what names I come up with and at hunt tests people have said "Remi thinks he's a lab" (he's a chessie) so it's either that or another name I came up with. Let the name come up with itself
