Lightbulb Harry Potter fans!(this is horse related i promise!)

Do you think it would be horrible to have my horse's show name be
"Expecto Patronum" like the spell in Harry Potter?

Here pictures of her

Am I too much of a nerd to realize this is a bad name or is it cute?
I'll be showing in hunter jumpers, show jumping, lower level dressage, and maybe hunter flat classes.


"A Patronus is a kind of positive force, and for the wizard who can conjure one, it works something like a shield, with the Dementor feeding on it, rather than him. In order for it to work, you need to think of a memory. Not just any memory, a very happy memory, a very powerful memory… Allow it to fill you up... lose yourself in it... then speak the incantation "Expecto Patronum"."

That would be totally awesome!

And I showed my app pony as "The Oncoming Storm" which is what the Daleks call The Doctor in Doctor Who...cause I'm a nerd like that.

EDIT: And I show my current pony as Finnegan's Wake which is an Irish drinking song...

Personally, I think it's a great name. Fun, meaningful and haven't heard it for a horse before.

I like it! The only thing I would worry about is that when your horse is called in the announcer won't be able to pronounce the name....

First, it is not "hunter jumpers". It is Hunter Over Fences or just hunters.

Second, as I said in a previous thread, not everyone would be able to pronounce this name properly, or even how to pronounce it. I vote for no, and something more easier to pronounce. However, if you are ok with the name being mutilated sometimes, then go for it, as it is your horse.

Personally, I expect almost 95% of people screwing up my last name when they say it, without ever having heard it before.

My horse's show name is Hufflepuff. And I call Rascal "The Oncoming Storm, Destroyer of Worlds, who is soaked in the blood of a million galaxies". Basicly, the Pandorica Opens Speech. I fail above all of you!


I wouldn't go with that particular show name; maybe another Harry Potter based one instead?

I personally love it! But you know, muggles may not understand how to pronounce it or what it means.
