2012 Foal Names

Ok, you may have read my ideas already over in our 2012 Baby Bumps thread, but it's our first foal, I'm excited, and may have accidentally highjacked that one to talk about names, so I'll put them here where they belong.

My expecting mare is a Friesian with the Dutch/American registry FPS/FHANA. According to their rules, foals born in the year 2012 have to have names that start with the letters M, N, or O. The name doesn't have to be Dutch, but it can be a nice nod to tradition.

For a colt, I'm thinking either Merel (Dutch for blackbird, which I think is just right for a Friesian) or Nautilus (nicknamed Nox). For a filly, I like Nocturne or Nautica (again, Nox), Oceana (Ana), Minuet (Minny), or Margaretta (Dutch again).

Feel free to chime in or share thoughts on names for your own 2012 foals!

*Note: Margaretta would certainly end up being Meg or Maggie!

Oceana reminds me of Oceania, the country in the book 1984. I'm assuming it's pronounced the same way - "Oh-shee-ana"? I think it's a beautiful name :)

Also, is this thread for foal names in general? I'm in need of help with coming up with a registered and barn name for my soon-to-be foal, also.

If y'all want to play the name game here are the registered names for my mare and the stallion she was bred to:

Smart Queen Lena

Check My Charisma

I absolutely suck at names, it takes me weeks (literally) to name something, lol!

I was thinking maybe Poco's Spark Catching Fire? Not sure...

Smart Queen Lena

Check My Charisma
Maybe "Queen of My Charisma"?

Great thread Zetha!! I didn't mind your posts on Baby Bumps at all- but I think there'll be a lot of input, so it's a great idea to have your own since it was your idea.. :)

I like these Dutch names as well..

But I really like your choice, Merel.. very fitting..
