Post Help me choose three names!

Hey guys! I need some serious help.

I'm planning on registering my four year old TWH gelding Dakota with the Part Walking Horse Association (it's the only association besides the ATHA that he can be registered in since his dam isn't registered, but his sire is... he doesn't gait and doesn't Rack, so he can't be registered as a Racking Horse).

Anyway, I need name help.

My boy's sire is Mack's Alabama Bear. He's on allbreed.

Bear's sire was Mack's Eclipse (deceased).
My boy's dam is my mare Gypsie.
Her sire was Ramrod Gem (deceased)She is of the sun bloodlines (Midnight Sun, etc...).

Anyway, I've put together a few names, but I'd like your input!

I need at least three good names to send in when I send the papers in (which honestly won't be for probably two or three more months, but there's nothing wrong in getting an early start!).




A few of the names on the poll, well, I got to playing around with the 'Alabama' part of Bear's name and where I live. I live way out in the country, in the South (obviously), so those are kind of self-explainatory. Haha.

Thanks!

I think Alabama Bugle Boy has a cool ring to it!
My next 2 choices would be Small Town Boy & Born Country ;)

Bear's Total Eclipse is cool- my horse has a sky themed name and it is majestic without being haughty....

Alabama Sunrise Gem is fantastic for the same reason.... I like etherial themes :)

Small Town Boy makes him seem like the perpetual underdog, which is always a good call - everyone loves the underdog!
