Hunter Show Name Needed! (pics)

Posted this under the wrong forum the first time, hoping this will get more attention now!

Hi everyone, I'm looking for a show name for my 6yr old TB, barn name Hershey. He is as sweet as his name, a little bit lazy (not your typical TB, needs some motivation to get energized! Loves to jump though) and will be going to the hunter ring.

I'm an adult amateur and I'm super picky about this name, I've been agonizing over it for months!! It has to be super classy but still have some meaning to me so I'm looking for someone to just throw out the perfect one... I like the classy names like 5th Avenue (well known hunter) as an example of what I'm looking for. Really like place names but all the good ones seem overdone, like Manhattan. I read a book (Pirate's Daughter) with a house called Bella Vista (beautiful view) which I also love but feel like it's more for a mare than a gelding...?

Hershey is a 16.1hh bay with a snip on his nose. His dam was Spy of Windsor and his sire was Northern Presence. He has bloodlines including names like Royal Chocolate, Chocolatier, Northern Dancer and even War Admiral. I really just don't know!! Any help would be appreciated, thanks :)

Classy Intrusion
Penthouse Sweet (goes with the chocolate theme, lol)

I like some of these! Keep em coming! Any thoughts on using the word Vista, anyone? Is Bella Vista too girly? I think so. What about Northern (for his dad) Vista?

I like Northern Vista, very elegant. I do think bella vista sounds a bit girly, but that's just me

I don't like Bella Vista for a boy, but that's just me. How about something like Hershey's Delight or Chocolate Kisses....

You could always do Beau Vue, which is the masculine version of Bella Vista. =)

How about...

Chocolate Class
Spy Of Class
Windsor Chocolate
Sweetly Windsor
Spy My Presence
Windsor Presence
Northern Cocoa

I will look and think and post more later. =)

Thanks guys!! I think I really like Northern Vista... I don't like the sound of Beau Vue, the masculine version.. just doesn't have a nice sound, you know? But I'm glad everyone agrees that Bella Vista is too girly, that helps me decide. As for the Hershey's Kiss and chocolately ones, I just think they sound too pony-ish, you know? I like Northern Cocoa!!! Why is this so hard, lol????

If you're looking for classy I think you have a good start with 'Windsor'. Can't get much classier than the royal name. Not sure what you would put with it though.

Actually, what about Royal Windsor

Okay, here I go.

On the Windsor theme. You could go

House of Windsor (sure the British royal family wouldn't mind)
Windsor Royale

or maybe

Best of British

My favourite name that I have been saving for that big chestnut I never seem destined to get is :-

High Treason
