Help picking names?

So my creative mind has taken a break and I can't seem to start a list of names for baby. Caleigh was just bred Wednesday and Thursday to Legacy's daddy BSG Taliesin. If all goes well and she's pregnant on her 16 day check we should have a baby by the end of March 2012/early April 2012. Fingers crossed for a healthy drum baby on the first try!

Anyway...names. I want to start list and add on through the months. I need colt names, filly names, show names, names that can go for a boy or girl. Here's some information and the sad list of names I've come up with.

If it helps any. Baby will be an english show prospect in pinto jumping dressage and maybe adding some trail riding. Those are my goals.

Mom:
Regs name: Northwest Arrows Caleigh
Barn name: Caleigh
Breed: Clydesdale
Height: 17.3 1/2
Use: a little of english everything

Dad:
Regs name: BSG Taliesin (BSG: Big Sky Gypsies)
Barn name: Tali or Taliesin
Breed: Gypsy Vanner
Height: 15.1
His page: Big Sky Gypsy and Drum Horses, Gypsy Vanner, Gypsy Horses, Gypsy Cob, Drum Horse, Gypsy Vanner Stallion, Homozygous Stallion, Montana, Seeley Lake


My sad list of names

Boy:
Arrow
Sonny
Fritz

Girl:
Foxy
Sunny

Registered names?
Spring Time Arrow (Arrow)
My Little Sunshine (Sunny/Sonny)
Little Pony That Could (Fritz) *granted when fully grown this will be no pony*

Baby should be either a dark bay and white or a tri color. Caleigh has previously only thrown bay Clydesdales with slight roaning in two of them.
Daddy is homozygous for tobiano coat pattern and in his foal crop page I've noticed when he's bred to a bay mare they normally get bay and white or tri-color babies. I'm just hoping for a healthy baby that I can register with pinto and show along side Legacy!

Anyway...any ideas on names? Shoot them out there. Feel free to check Tali's foal crop page those babies are adorable and it might give ideas to names?

As for registered names supposedly it's a mix between dad and mom however both dad and mom are named after their breeders and I don't want to name baby after their breeders there for I can only offer my imagination which is currently on hiatus. grrr. My trainer says something eye catching that pops!

I'm not so good with names but I have to say that the sire and dam are both beautiful!

You are never better than anyone. Every rider has skills they need to improve. The only one you must compare yourself with, is you.

Same here! Im horrible with names! Thats also why Rodeo got to keep his, besides it being part of his registered name

Breeding your gorgeous mare to a Gypsy stallion was such a good idea!! I have always LOVED your mare!! I'm terrible with names but I just wanted to say good luck on your mare being pregnant!!!

Thanks everybody! Keep them coming! I'm very excited. Her first check is the 7th of May I think. That should be around 16 days. I'm hoping she's positive!
