What is the Prettiest/Coolest horse name you've heard?

Our OTTB has some really cool names in his bloodline.

My favorite is:

Danzig (his grandsire)

Others I like:

Noble Commander

Dust Commander

Bold Ruler


Breezy Brilliance (his dam)

and not in his bloodline, but my second favorite name:

Jean Baptiste

Also one of my favorites is our Belgian's registered name: Traces of Gold (due to the red coloring in her mane and tail)

And Beauseant: which is the banner and battle cry of the Knights Templar

And Epona: a celtic goddess who is protector of horses

Here's a few I've named over the years that were my faves...

Wood U Button Mi Up (Mimi) sire's name was Doc, dam was Buttons

Han Dell Bars (my maiden name was Han, grandsire was Poco Dell) so when announced it was "Mandy Han riding Han Dell Bars"

Han Dee Man - that one was really fun on the p.a. ;)

Han Dee Work

Docapella - grandsire was Doc, a play on singing a capella.

My littlest guy is pending but hopefully he is "Docs Merit Badger" (Merit)

I've always been told that my gelding High Five has a very unique name. I guess so.

A couple horses I really liked this name of is my friend's stud, Black Velvet and a very gorgeous blue roan appy, Misty Moon. The owner of the mare doesn't like it - I don't see how :o

We are thinking of naming our young Hanoverian cross Couer de Pirate (pronounced "coor de pirat"), which means "Pirate Heart" in French. It is a name that I LOVE! And it suits the young rascal quite well.

My girl's name is Satin. She's not registered anywhere but the name I'm thinking of showing her under is 'Sweet Nothings' - it's that or 'A Touch of Class'.

Edit; and my boy's name is Monty, a name I don't really like, but it suits him. His registered name is Bawara Riverdance, and THAT is a name I like.

I like some of the old thoroughbred names,if you have a Paint, or QH, or anything with Tb blood in, and go back far enough you'll find names like

Eclipse of course, Squirt, Whalebone, Camel, Pot8O's, Blank, Spanker, Waxy

I used to ride at a barn which had a horse named Adonis. I really like that name/word.

I also love the name Chimera, and good ol' Spirit.

The Last Orange. The great great grandsire of a mare I rode.
