SVOC sentence help
 
Hello everyone,

I īm teaching basic sentence patterns and I understand them for the most part, but on some of them my brain gets a little hung up. I could use some help.

I know SVOC sentences are when the object is modified to become the complement.

E.g.: I made spaghetti for dinner.  the spaghetti becomes dinner, hence SVOC.
Versus:   I made dinner for her.    Dinner doesn īt become her.

But, what about the following sentence. 

[I have a friend called Tom.]

Is this an SVOC sentence? I don īt know why, but my brain is saying it īs not somehow, even though my friend "is" called Tom, because SVOC sentences are usually transformative in that the subject of the sentence acts upon the object to change it. I dyed my hair pink. I named my cat Fluffy. I turned the colour red, etc. However, in the case of [I have a friend called Tom.] Nothing has been acted upon as it is a description of a state.

I would really appreciate anyone īs thoughts on the matter who have taught this before.

I am not sure if this helps, but "I have a friend called Tom" actually contains a reduced relative clause. It is reduced from "I have a friend who is called Tom" so it does in a sense contain BE and is passive (though I donīt think an SVOC sentence is supposed to be passive). But if you look at it this way it also contains two clauses and does not follow the pattern you describe anyway.
