Horse Name

I posted on here a month or so ago about names for my filly, and I am ashamed to say I still haven't named her :( So I have to tell everyone that she has no name when they ask.

Anyway, my boyfriend and I have narrowed it down to a handful of names. Some I guess are pretty bad but I like them. So I thought I would ask for some advice from here. These are the names (and some of the meanings):

Flavia - golden
Areion - an immortal horse born of two greek gods (Poseidon and Demeter)
Aureliane - little golden one
Callista or Callisto

She's a 3 year old Anglo, she's very smart and alert, fast but not really spooky. In person she has a striking look to her (the pics here aren't great).

Here are some pics. Thanks for any help :)

I like Echo. I prefer to keep then short and sweet.

I think I like Echo, as well. I also like short names that aren't generic "people" Path, Key, Sin, Fable, Lore, Song...yah know, stuff like that. Honestly, if you pick a long, fancy name you'll wind up calling them by some nickname least I would. They say animals respond to one syllable words, too.

She's cute, by the way!!
