Post Horse name suggestions please? :)

Hello! I recently got a new horse and I'm looking for some name ideas. Ill be honest I don't really like the classic names, I really like unique names! So no, Bella, Storm, Spot, or anything classic and normal..Please :) Also if it starts with a D, that would be cool but if not thats totally fine :)
About her:
The horse I'm looking to name is a pinto (chestnut and white, tabiano) saddlebred mare. One of her markings is on her chest, its a shape that looks like a heart! I kind of was thinking of a name that had something to do with a heart, or love, etc. but if it doesn't feel free to still post it so i can see it. :) She is sweet, but can be disrespectful, only because she doesnt like to be worked, her previous owners spoiled her with lots of treats and no work, but aside from that is super sweet. I plan to jump with her in the future and maybe do some dressage. She is very spunky with TONS of energy. loves the herd, maybe a little too much sometimes, She is about 6? ish? and thats about it...Post anything you can think of, im open to all suggestions. :) thanks :)

Thanks for suggesting some! Yes, she came with a name, but it is a spiritual Buddhist name that means something like "Conjoining" and its a very weird name. It starts with a D, so i was thinking maybe i could keep it like that unless another letter sparks my interest. I would like to change her name though. She isnt a filly or anything, she is about 6. Thanks again for the good suggestions. I think Dartella will be going on my list of choices. :)

How bout Delahaye? Some of the most outrageously gorgeous and opulent cars ever made... and I love the name.


Just an example.

Honestly? I look to old horse names for some inspiration, those people were better at it.

The worst thing that happened to horse names is how derivative they have become. Compare "Shes a Gunner" to "Two Eyed Jack".

One is an identity (Two Eyed Jack), the other is a pitch (this horse has Gunner on her papers).

Good luck, naming horses is hard.
