Name Suggestions?

I am buying a new gelding. He is a sorrel paint horse, about 16h and very stocky. He is mostly red with a few white spots (overo) and he has a big blaze on his face. His blaze goes all the way down over his nose and lips, and he has a cute little brown spot the size of a quarter right on his muzzle. His coat is a dark red-brown and he has a lighter sorrel mane and tail. Unfortunately I don't have pictures right now. He's very sweet and friendly and not registered. His old owners called him Paint. I want a better name. Does anyone have any suggestions?

The basest horn of his hoof is more musical than the pipe of Hermes.
He's of the color of the nutmeg and of the heart of the ginger.
His neigh is like the bidding of a monarch,
And his countenance enforces homage.
- William Shakespeare

Legacy? That'd be fun to make a show name with =) maybe Fabio, Fable, or Romeo =) Or Enchanted, and Chant for short.

Miakoda was my most creative horse name, lol. I pulled it out of nowhere too, LOL! It means Power of the Moon =)

Good luck! i want to see pictures!!

I've always liked the name "Pete" for a paint.

Booger. When I was a kid I had a cat named booger, she had a dark spot on her little pink nose!!! She was the sweetest thing ever!!!

Be strong and courageous, and do the work. Don't be afraid or discouraged by the size of the task, for the Lord God, my God, is with you. He will not fail you or forsake you.
