Does he not have a breed registration ?

At least the agility obedience register isn't full of affixes you can't have.
As there are not thousands of cavaliers on there why not bring 'cavalier' into the name ?

Cavalier Charlie ? Then people will know who he is.

In the US, if we show in AKC agility, we use the dog's name that is on the AKC registration. For the other venues, CPE, USDAA, TDAA, etc., we can use the AKC name or the name we call our dog. I've never heard of using a different name than either of those.

If he came with papers he will already have a show name. I think you need to go through a formal procedure to change that and it's quite tricky- often it turns into something like 'Charterwood Vogue at Drumadowney' or something along those lines.

If you already have a registered pedigree name, then use it, as it is unique.

For agility in the UK and Ireland, you can agility-register a dog that isn' t already registered or one that is, and either way, give it a name for agility. You have to have some sort of competitive name -- so you can use the dog's call name, or use the regsitered name if the dog is registered, but a lot of people like to come up with a special name for agility competition.

A lot of agility dogs are not purebred, or may not be from registered breedes even if they are, but to compete, they need a limited registration with the appropriate kennel club. In Ireland you pay €10 or 20 or so for an annual registration and need to fill in a name on the form. Hence the need for a name. :) Personally I'd use the dog's call name or some fun variation of it, rather than the registered name.
