New Buckskin Gelding, need help with a name!!

I just brought a 4 year old buckskin quarter horse gelding home yesterday and cannot think of a name for anything! His rescue name (he was part of the lucky 48 in Kentucky) was Buck, but I'm looking for something a little more unique. Anyway, he's as sweet as can be and gorgeous. Please help!

What? No picture? How can we pick a name without a few cute pictures to look at? I love buckskins.

So he was just a little guy (yearling?), then, when he was taken into the rescue - has he been in rescue since or did you get him from a secondary home? And, yes, we need pictures.

Yes he was really young when he was rescued around a year old. I got him from a secondary home. I'm trying to figure out how to attach a picture from my phone but I just can't figure it out, lol. Thank you though, I'll try on my computer tomorrow :)

I've always wanted a buckskin named Buck, so why change it! Lol. Dollar is another one, coz he's gold like a dollar coin. Yeah, I'm pretty cliche and unoriginal!

Buck is a good name! Of course, I am biased being that my horse is also named Buck. ;) How about fluffing it out a little?

what is his personality? What I do, and it is silly, is I stand at the front of the pen. i start just saying names.. example, buck, sam, charlie, aldo, just any name that pops into my head. When the horse responds , picking his ears up , coming to fence, making lips, head bob, I repeat that name. If i get a response that becomes the horses name. If the horse pins his ears, at a name, I dont repeat that name.
