Denny needs a show name - please help!!

If I'm planning to show Denny at all this spring/summer, he needs a new sow name, so I may as well start looking at a new one now!
His name at the moment is.. wait for it:
Dupes Delight.
Yep. It's awful, isn't it? It's his Thoroughbred registry name... there is a story behind it, let me know if you'd like to hear it.

Anyways, you guys have come up with some really cool names and I was hoping that you could (once again) help me out.

I really don't have any "requirements" about the name.. although I do like unique names.

His personality.. he's playful and very honest, but can be excitable. He's an absolute doll :)

Thanks in advance!!

You can check my Horses page for lots of pictures.. here's a couple for inspiration:

(back when he was really skinny, he's at a healthy weight now)

Hi JDI, I would like very much to know the story behind his registered name. Sometimes the circumstances help with finding a new name, if not its still an interesting story.

How about .......Stall Rest. j/k


He's got such an honest, happy face.....Lemme think on it.

Be strong and courageous, and do the work. Don't be afraid or discouraged by the size of the task, for the Lord God, my God, is with you. He will not fail you or forsake you.

Heh... the story.

He has what the racing world calls "royal blood" - he's bred to the nines, famous horses on the top and bottom. He was bred at a barn in Northern Alberta called the Dupont farm. Denny was supposed to be this amazing racehorse, so they named him "Dupes Delight" after their barn.
He raced for 4 years, and only won one race... haha.. go figure.

Dumas, are you trying to jinx it even more?? :( hehe just kidding. I love his face.

For others, Denny has a few distinguishing marks on his body:
One ear has 2 small tears in it (old injuries)
He's a sabino chestnut, so he has grey hairs all throughout his body.

Can't wait to hear suggestions!!

Ooh, thanks for the great replies, what a good start!!

Salty, I really like "Can't Dupe Me"!!
MLK, An Honest Legacy really caught my eye, maybe I'll try and twist that around a little and see what I can make from it :)

I"m trying to think of a name that says "I'm sneaky in a lovable sort of way; just kidding. Do you still love me?" I don't know why, but his pictures always make me think that.

So let's see if I can think of anything...
Dupes on You? Nope, that's stupid.
Duped You?
Dupemeister -- Ya, THat's IT. DUPEMEISTER!
