Foaling Preparation

Hello. My mare is still two months away from delivery time, but it is never too early to start thinking of name possiblities! My mare is a bay Arabian. Here is her picture.
The sire is a Palomino Quarter Horse. I do not have any pictures of him available though. The mare's name is TR Amneris, and the sire is Let Freedom Ring. I want to keep the TR in the name because the foal is a Traveler's Rest bred horse which is popular Arabian bloodline in my area though I will definitely keep the baby. The baby color possiblities are

29.17%-Buckskin (I hope!)
29.17%-Bay
16.67%-Palomino
16.67%-Chestnut
4.17%-Smokey Black
4.17%-Black

Any name suggestions will be great. I will post pics when he/she is born though it will be a while. She is starting to get the baby belly obviously though, and I felt it kick the other day. This is not her first baby though it has been 9 years since her last one!

This is our 3rd baby. However, the last baby we had is actually the daddy of this baby! It's cool to have so many connections to tie in this baby. I will know both parents and all the grandparents for this foal.

For when the baby is due, I have a post entitled Gestation Period. She is suppose to be due at the end of May/first of June. However, I noticed on her records from the people we got her from that she went really early on the last baby (321 days) so we are in preporation mode. However, I can tell she is just not quite big enough to be anxious just yet. I have been trying to get a baby out of this mare for 3 years, so I am ready for it. I tried with a Holsteiner out of Canada (Lancaster), but his sperm count was low and she aborted twice. We went all natural with this baby, and she has had absolutely no difficulties! I just hope it continues. She is almost 21 now :(

I do like TR American Pride. That is really cute. Are there any suggestions to bring in dam's name (Amneris)? She is an Arabian, so it is a little different but I absolutely love it.

I do like TR Amnerica! I have thought about TR Bisque for a boy. I know it has nothing to do with any of their bloodlines, but it's different and short (which I like to double use as a barn name).

Amneris is gaining weight so quickly! She gained about 50 pounds this week!!!
