naming a new colt or filly --- help?

hey guys! The mare that I work with is due to foal in about two months, and I'm ready to start thinking of names for the baby! I want atleast four names (two for each gender) to pick from once it arrives, so I need some help! I'm going to post a few pictures of the sire and dam so you all can get an idea of what the foal will look like. (I'm predicting that the foal with be brown, like it's father, but there is a chance of a solid chestnut or even a painted brown/chessi in there.)

The only thing I ask is that the name not be something to do with the foal's color (we named a colt blue last year and he shedded out to be a deep bay ) so no 'red' 'brownie' 'blackie' 'red rover' etc, please! XD

We're mainly shooting for a barn name, but I would LOVE if you included a registerable name with your barn name if you have an idea!

Sire: (he'd just had a bathin this picture)


Dam:



So yeah! Lable your names by gender if they have one, and post as many as you want!

You know what I did when my mare foaled is I waited. The situations, the day he/she was born, the moms name and sires name can be included. The day the mare foaled it was sprinkling out. The mares name is Miss a Bull and the the sires name is Gamblin Reno. I named the fillys name is Gambling Misty. So, that's how I did it. Whatever you want to do. Have fun with it!

I also wait. We had a "Hale Bop Dell" Haley who was born on the night of the hale bop comet, dell from her grandsire, Poco Dell. My yearling filly had an instant independent streak, sang her own tune. So she became "Docapella", barn name Pella. Doc was her grandsire combined with A Capella, singing without music. Have fun with it! I love naming babies :)

I actually did really want to wait, but with the situation that I'm in (me not owning the mare or her upcoming foal) I'll need to be quick to get an input on the foal's name xD generally we all meet together, throw out some names once it's born, and decide by majority. I figured having some ideas wouldn't hurt
