Question Help in naming Chestnut Gelding

We are considering purchasing a Chestnut Gelding for our daughter.

Right now his name is Masterpiece. She doesn't like his current name. She wants something elegant and refine.

He has a blaze and two socks. He is very sweet and well mannered. A truly great horse.

Any suggestions? She was thinking Coffee Break, but I'm not sold on that. She also likes Copper (something). or Cream Soda. She seems to be stuck on his coloring.

Thanks for you suggestions.

personally I like think copportone and Spice are more "elegant and refined" then coffee break, but that's me. I also like Cinnamon spice, palying off the names Christine suggested

Well first i would take off the rose tinted glasses and look at the horse.
Its a gelding, Nutless spring to mind humour required. but on the serious side do you want a horse as a partner or a show piece.

I have a Stella she looks a little tarty and is the boss

I have bugs a gelding with a sence of humour.

Why not be diffrent and just call the horse, Horse, because when it plays up the cool name goes out the window and horse creeps in.

good luck

My blog you may enjoy the read. Its different.

I know if I ever get a gelding I would name him after a Disney horse

Philippe was Belle's horse. Maximus was the horse from Tangled. Khan was from Mulan. Achilles was from hunchback from Notre Dam
