Help me name my new horse!

His current name is Roger. I don't like it, and its not a very fitting name. He has alot more spirit than a "Roger"

Names I like are:
Zorro (current favorite)
Zeus
Playboy
Magnum


He is a 16h TB gelding






Would love some cool ideas for help! Please no "people" names like bob, jim, or fred.


Lets have fun with this!

I can't think of Magnum without my mind hopping into the gutter. I like Zeus though.

He looks like a "G" name to me.

Gulliver
Gypsum
Gabriel

Or Gambit!

Haha me too with Magnum. I like zues ALOT but my friend's horse who just passed away was named Zues. So I will probably not pick that. I really love unique names starting with Z's or X's maybe. I like Gypsum too.

Here's a website that was linked to me when I was looking for a new name for my Aires (he was originally named "Charlie Horse").

20000-NAMES.COM: Pet Names - Main Menu

Thank you, I will definatly check it out.

But i'm lovinnn Xander. Great name!

I wonder how he'll (more so how I) will adjust to the name change.

I've known him for 4 years as Roger. But it brings such negative thoughts with it. So it needs to go.

I had a pit/dane mix named Xander. He was named after Xander Cage from the movie "Triple X" because he had a tiny white spot on the back of his neck, like Xander Cage's tattoo in the movie.

Just repeat the name over and over again when you're working with him. Speak it out loud. My boy was named "Charlie" by the BO when I got him and the first thing I did was change his name to Aires. It took the BO a month or so to get it, but now the only person who slips and calls Aires "Charlie" is the BO's nine-year-old son.
