Name ideas for a new Yearling colt

Hi,

I'm buying a Warmblood colt this weekend, and he is currently unregistered (but is eligible for registration).
I was hoping to throw around some ideas for names? I'd like to include part of his Sire's name in the registered name.

Sire: Furst Love

Dam: Widgeway Solitaire

Dam Sire: Salute

My idea was Furst Salute.. But I'm not 100% sold on the idea...

I thought he already had a name, that the video on the critique section was titled?

Hes not registered yet, and I'm not 100% sure I like that name for him.

His paddock name is 'Biscuit'.

I thought 'Fuhnatic' or however it was spelt, was a great name! Furst Salute is rather bland and not terribly inventive ;)

Has to start with F preferably Fu - there have been some really fantastic names going around for the Furst Love and Furst Kiss youngsters! I still like Fuhrnatic for him :) Also presuming Widgeway is the stud prefix for the mare, so can't use that in the foals name unless they bred him, in that case Widgeway Fuhrnatic would be the way to go!

Thanks for the suggestions!

Kayty, you are probably right. I'll most likely stick with Fuhrnatic. Unless someone comes up with a better Fu or Furst name! I'll ask about using the prefix Widgeway (I don't really like it, so I'd rather not use it)..

In saying that - when I looked at the Warmblood registration form, it says I have to have a prefix or initials in front of the name... Do you know much about this?

I know I have to join as a member myself before I can register him. Maybe when I become a member I select a prefix/initials then?? I always thought they came from the breeder though. Thoroughly confused!

If Widgeway stud bred him, please use their prefix. Breeders put a lot of effort into breeding quality horses, and to remove the prefix from a horses name is a real stab in the back for a breeder.
Often they don't mind you changing the horse's name, but will beg you to leave the prefix attached (unless the horse is a real dud!).

OK, I'll find out more info from the seller. I got the feeling that they were small time breeders, not a large stud. Not sure what they were called.
I wouldn't dream of taking the breeding credit away from the breeder!
