Arabian Foal Names & Predictions?

Okay so I'm really jumping the gun here but the excitement is overwhelming!

I have an Arabian foal due in 4 months and I'm trying to get some name ideas. I won't be naming the foal until after it's born because I want a name that reflects his/her personality. I don't want something corny, it has to be somewhat exotic and unique.

For all you Arabian breeders, how do you name your babies? I would really like to find an Arabic name that actually has a correct meaning but many of the websites I've looked at are nothing I would name a foal, lol.

Also...I know there's no way of predicting color, but what is your guess? Black, bay, chestnut?

Here is Mom & Dad

Sire: Zaire SLG

****Also...please post pictures of your 2013 babies! I would love to see them

Each person has their own way to name good luck

As far as your color possibilities, you will have either a bay, black or chestnut. This could be narrowed down if you know the stallion's black status and the mare's agouti status. If the stallion is Ee for black and the mare is Aa for agouti, you can get black, bay or chestnut. But if the stallion is EE and/or the mare is AA or aa, your choices are more limited

Unfortunately I do not know the sire's black status as this is his first foal. Not sure of Mom's agouti status I guess its a true guess! I have no preferences in color or sex, as long as its a healthy baby I'm happy!

This is a really old fashioned idea I will admit, but you might go to your local library and see what is available pertaining to Arabia, Egypt, that area. Or a book translating that language into English.

Here's a translator that might be helpful:

For example: Amir/Amira-- King/Princess

That's a good idea. Also, I thought maybe choosing a name that pertained to the sire and grandsire. The grandsire (Zambizy) is named after an African river and the sire (Zaire) is named after an African country. I thought maybe an African mountain, country, or river might be cool, or it could be really corny...thoughts?

I also thought if it were a black filly maybe "Black Velvet" after the dam Ma Hijo Velvet...however a cheap alcohol isn't exactly what I want my foal named after either

I'm no good at naming, took forever to come up with my colt's name. I have a book with Arabic horse names that helped. I finally settled on KLD Kadar. The initials are his sire's name. Kadar meaning powerful or something along that line (can't remember at the moment)! My breeder (and instructor/friend) said that if you put one of the parent's initials before the name you choose, then you'd be almost 100% sure of getting the name you wanted on the registration papers.

At least 4 months until you can post a photo?? Can't wait to see the little baby! Congrats!

Gigem88--could you explain the sire's initials? That's interesting. What is your colt's sire's name?

Kadee's Last Delight is the sire's name.
