Help me name my new horse!!!!

This is my brand new, 3 year old standardbred gelding. He's about 15.3 hands, all bay with no white. He has a really full mane and tail, but you can't really tell because the previous owners used scissors to get the mud clumps out. I don't know what to name him! (he's wet and kind of scruffy in the picture) Also, I already adopted him, but what do you think about his conformation?

The basest horn of his hoof is more musical than the pipe of Hermes.
He's of the color of the nutmeg and of the heart of the ginger.
His neigh is like the bidding of a monarch,
And his countenance enforces homage.
- William Shakespeare

Aw bless him!
Do you want like a human name or not?
For a human one you could have

For non human names you need to know his character more?
Or it could be a planet, food etc

Ever feel like the one place you are happy and whole is in the saddle?

Glad to see this poor thing in better hands. Looks like he needs a good diet and cleaning, hopefully his coat will improve quickly.

Congrats on your new horse, what are your plans with him

you could find out what his horseanality is like, that way you can better gauge what kind of name he should have. you don't want to name a horse rocket that only likes to walk! lol! He should have a little more weight on, other than that I can't wait to see when you have him all shinned up! I find it a shame that people just find horses useless after a while. But helps all us horse people that like taking them in!

you can start with nothing, and out of nothing or no way, a way will be provided.
