Picking a Showname

Okay, so my mare's name is Leia (lay-uh) and her show name has always been "Laughing Layup". Her dam's name is Snickers (a type of laugh) and her sire is Nothin' But Net (a basketball term, hence 'layup') and that's how she got her name. I never changed it because my trainer was the one who named her before I bought her, so I kept it.. But now I've moved barns and I'm switching to jumpers and XC and she needs an 'edge' against the bigger horses (she's a petite little 14.2hh pony). She has a lot of personality (she is a mare after all!), she can be dramatic, pretends to be spooky, and a little nutcase! I like Japanese things, Anime, Music (pretty much any genre besides country, but my favorite bands are Gorillaz, Pink Floyd, Daft Punk), Puns, and anything that makes her stand out! I also don't want something that will take forever to say. I want it to be short, sweet and to the point!

Some of the names I've played around with:
Non Sequitur
Impending Doom
Topless (haha so when they announce us, it's 'Charlotte riding Topless!')
Masaka (Japanese for 'no way' or 'no kidding')
Pirate Jet (a song by my favorite band, Gorillaz)
Hentai (ummm just for those who know what this means, I'm definitely not into that, it's just cool sounding!)
Stylo (another song by Gorillaz)
Shinigami (Means Grim Reaper)
El Mañana (means morning in spanish)
Stiletto (I actually think this would be better for a tall horse..)
Sound Check
Daft Punk
Global Astroliner

Here's a picture of her (note the squirrelly expression):

I think the Topless one is priceless, plus it could be sort of symbolic saying something to the line of she can never be topped or conquered? I am not that into anime so I am not that big of a fan of the other names.

Maybe you could pair Topless with something about her color or attitude?

'Topless'. I LOVE IT.

I think she looks like she's got an attitude, which I love, so the ones that really stood out to me in your list were these:
Sound Check
Daft Punk

And these two, from Snizard93:
Rising Tempo
High Frequency

I know I didn't exactly narrow it down, haha, but still, my votes for these ones!!

Good luck! Picking names is so fun. Our last show horse was Never Say Never, also had Trouble To Be and Borrowed Paisley.

I like Topless:)

So in lies the madness, the pursuit of the impossible in the face of the complete assurance that you will fail, and yet still you chase.
