Part fad, part "showing off" bloodlines.
For example, Hollywood Dun It was a champion sire that produced great babies, so naming a horse with "Dun" in it somewhere can hint to a person that it's related to Hollywood Dun It.
Just like a lot of "Lena" names trace back to the original famous Lena line.
Could be a color thing as well, plays on color/names are very popular.
