Weirdest Horse Names you Have Ever Heard of?

This is just like a little fun poll. What are some of the weirdest or stupidest names you've ever heard?

I have a few.

My current horse, who is now named Tiara, is registered as "Do-It". Really? How do you think of horrible names like that? It says on her pedigree that her sire was named NITty Gritty, and her dam was DOrstat, so I guess that's where they got it, but I'm sure they could have thought of something else! We renamed her Tiara on the car-ride home when we knew we were buying her. I guess Tiara is a bit strange, but we had Teddy and Troya, and kinda wanted to keep the T's!

Then, we have heard of endless stupid names while horse-searching. One horse we tried (that ended very badly) was named Milt. I don't know his registered name, but that's what he was called. Milt. Wow. Apparently, he was named after the owner's Uncle Milt?

Then, we met a Paint gelding named Cookie. Maybe for a mare, but not a gelding!

I can't think of any more now, so, what are some of the strangest/stupidest horse names you've ever heard?

My babe was named by an 5 yr old girl. Her mother asked her what my soon to be geldings name would be she replied "Neigh!" So my steed was dubbed the very sound that he would make... Lolz I would change it if I weren't superstitious- personally I think changing the name is bad luck Lolz!!!

I learned how to cut on an old bay paint gelding named Rainbow. My friend has a horse named The Mare (hes an old cowboy) also has a gelding named The Bay (hes a a bay)... I call The Mare, Marry And The Bay, Baby hes just laughs. Grady was named Scooter before I changed it.
Another friend bought a horse which didnt have a name and decided to stick with Horsey cause thats what her baby girl called her. haha
Ive also heard Hard Wood(Woody), 4Cs (chocolate Chip Cookies & Cream), Tomato, and Pans. And I did come across a horse that had no name at all.

Don't breed, buy. Don't buy, adopt.
