None of my horses are registered except Tanner and Magic, but they all have show names anyway. Brace yourself for my weird naming system! XD Ruby - Rubaiyate Meaning: The Rubaiyat is, in a very basic sense, a poem. I added the 'e' to the end by accident, and then it just stuck, because it seemed to help people pronounce it. (In more detail, if you care: "A Persian ruba'i is a two line stanza with two parts (or hemistechs) per line, hence the word "Rubaiyat", (derived from the Arabic root word for 4), meaning "quatrains" (a poem with 4 line stanzas)." (from Wikipedia). 2-Pak - Dio Meaning: "Dio" is Italian for "God". I have a tendency for muttering in foreign languages if I'm stressed, and a friend caught me mutter to 2-Pak after he threw a fit about crossing a bridge, "Dio mio, che palla." ("My god, what a pain in the @ss.") Dante - Dante Sonata Meaning: 'Dante' comes from the name Dante Alighieri, writer of The Divine Comedy (AKA Dante's Inferno), one of my favorite books. "Dante Sonata" is the shorter name of "Après une Lecture de Dante: Fantasia quasi Sonata" (French: "After a Reading of Dante: Fantasia quasi Sonata") -- a piano sonata by Franz Liszt, inspired by The Divine Comedy. I only recently discovered this, and liked it so much, Dante's previous "Prince Dante" became "Dante Sonata." Bandit - Thievery Meaning: Sorry, there really isn't one. ^^; I just liked the name and it stuck. Tanner - Tanner Hutch Magic - Brennan's Magic
