My new horse will need a new name!

The title says it all!
She comes home tomorrow (I'll try her out to see if I like her) but I don't like her name! Its currently "Cora". Her registered name is Mr Oles Foxy Lady. She hasnt been ridden in a month because of the owners leg injury, so will need to be re freshed, that's fine with me. Any name suggestions?

I will get more pictures tomorrow when she comes in

Also, if anyone wants to look at her pedigree, to tell me what you think, heres a link:

I do not understand why people feel the need to change names on a critter. How would you like it if someone didn't like your name and changed it to suit them?

It took me over a week to think of Noah's name. It was Thunder, which always makes me think of a bratty little pony. Nobody liked any of the names I picked, so when I finally decided on Noah, I wouldn't tell anyone until after he was home! Luckily, it totally fits him. Check out this site... Horse Names

Thank you!
I guess she's a bit stubborn, but willing to please at the same time. I will definitely know more tomorrow! I could amost turn this into a contest... everyone just write down names, and when I meet her tomorrow, I will pick the one that suits her the best! Lol

As long as you don't change her registered name, what does it matter?

Since you're only bringing her home to try her out, I wouldn't jump the gun on changing her barn name, anyway.

Besides, their personality usually gives away their name, not some silly contest.

I think the only one who will be able to pick a good name will be you and the others around her.

She is cute.

I actually like Cora.

I like the name "Tora" and it sounds close to her original name. "Cinder" would be cute for a chestnut as well. She's adorable, btw.
