I tried naming my little mini mule before she was born and tossed around over 30 names trying to find one that I liked. When I got a call that she has been born on 9/11 I came out with my sheet of names ready to pick one. The second I saw her though, I knew that I was going to name her Honor. It wasnt even on my list, but it fit her perfectly! Funny though, after having her mama who's name is Sour for all of these years and dealing with her less-than-stellar personality I swore I wouldnt name the baby anything that could possibly have anything to do with a personality name like Sweetie, Spicey, etc. Naming her Honor sounded safe, but I've realized now that Honor is perfect for 'Honory' which is EXACTLY what she is, the little buggar!
Sour wasn't named by me, she was named by her former owner who sort of let her be the boss and take over without any repriminding or anything. As much as I wanted to change her name though,nothing else seems to fit her and she really just is a Sour horse xD I love her to death but she's not a people horse. She has no use for humans and I'm the only person she really puts up with, only because I'm just as stubborn as she is.
Then theres Peppin and Kenzie who I also named. I really dont know how I came up with those. They were both fosters (we have now adopted Peppin and Kenzie has been rehomed but kept her name) but Peppin, even though he came from a terrible situation, is just a big bundle of energy. I wanted to name him Peppy but I see that name so much in QH bloodlines that I decided to mix the other name I liked- Pippin, with Peppy, and get Peppin xD he unfortunately lost his eye this spring in a freak accident though so, mean as we are, we end up calling him 'Pirate Pony' most of the time even though he's only a year old and already 15.2hh at the butt.
Kenzie means treasure, so it just fit for a tiny newborn from a bad situation of mangy horses to be named treasure. She has some serious health issues but her new owners love their little 'treasure' anyways!
