I've got a totally wild suggestion, give him a cool French name!

A good one along the lines of Jasper is "J'espoire" or "J'espoire-que-Oui" (meaning "I belive/hope" and "I hope yes (yes being parellel to "so" in the english saying)

It's pronounced jes-pair the "j" is the hardest because its soft, you almost have to make a "sh" and then roll it into a J sound, the middle is k like the "cu" in culture and the end "oui" is super easy just "we"

So "(sh)Jes-pair-cu-we"

My horse is "Lui-Qui-Dis-Oui" it sounds like "lwe-key-dee-wee" (the whole thing rhymes) and it means something like "he who says yes"

Making up French names is fun because they sound cool and they're very unique.

Just wanted to say that I'm fluent (well, I used to be anyway... I've forgotten some of it) in French and that the names are really cute.

I would like to say that "I hope" is more accurately translated as "j'espère." "Espoir" is the noun form of the word hope, while "esperer" is the verb form. So conjugated, it would be "j'espère." It would be said the way you described: jes-paire.

"I believe" would be "je crois" - said like je cwah. E's in French make this funky "euh" sound. Like the "oo" in "hoof," actually.

On "Lui-qui-dis-oui," you would actually say the "s" on "dis" but it sort of links it to the next word. Everything in French slurs together, lol. They don't like to stop between words.

Really cute names! :]

I love There and Back Again. It's beautiful and it's a nice reference to classic literature.

Thank you for the replies! I agree with the consensus. I like March Forth but I think that There and Back Again is my favorite out of those names that I have suggested.

Masatisan and LeahKathleen, that's a really cool idea! I'm far from fluent but I believe that "I hope" would in fact be "J'espere" (forgive me for lack of accent marks). "To Hope" is "Espoire", but the conjugated form would be j'espere (tu esperes, il/elle espere...) It's an interesting name! I'll take that into consideration.

"Esperer" (with accents in appropriate places) is "to hope." "Espoire" or realistically, "l'espoire" is the noun form of hope. As in, "I have hope." ("J'ai l'espoir.")

But yes, you are correct about the conjugations. :]
