Your all time favorite horse name

Looking for ideas for naming a new horse. He came with a name I'm not fond of. Throw out your all-time favorite name for a male horse!

Well I have a gelding named Chips (appy with blanket), had him six weeks old, he was chewing the paint chips off the sides of the trailer when him/his Mom came....hence Chips
I have a 3 1/2yr. Born here from my mare Spice, his name is Street.....he is named after my daughter's fiancee who was killed in Afganistan (he loved my mare and rode her)...so his name is after him Pte. Street.
We also have a brown and white paint boarded here, his name is Starbuck, because the original owner likes Starbuck coffee and thought the brown is like coffee and the white is cream LOL

My horses are the joy in my life.....

I think the funniest male horse name I've been around was "Fabio" because he was a Kiger/Morgan cross (very elegant) with SO MUCH HAIR.

My all time favorite name for a male horse, though somewhat cheesy, is Cisco. My goal is to one day have a stocky, dead broke, QH gelding named Cisco. Maybe buckskin... haha

Other good names: Ready - a gelding that you could trust whenever, doing whatever, and Battlewagon - just darn cool.

Fabio - 13 year old Arabian/Lipizzaner gelding
Hazel - 14 year old Angora goat

Atticus - 4 year old LaMancha/Alpine cross goat

Rest peacefully, Lacey.

I love the name Bentley. And Wallaby, I ran barrels on a buckskin QH gelding named Cisco for two years. He was awesome, I think he was 17/18 when I was riding him. We did very well, surprisingly. He died in his paddock at 25 ish, in his sleep. I still miss the old man, I have some good memories with him.

What's his personality like? Color? Markings?

That's fantastic!
My lesson horse - for 7 years, back when I was a kiddo, was a brown QH gelding named Cisco who was probably a million years old. He was the one who really got me hooked on bringing old animals back to life!
The buckskin part - the horse in the movie "Dances With Wolves" is a buckskin QH named Cisco. I wonder if someone was being smart when they named the guy you knew...

No one answered my thread and I wanted to know how Mr. Gold Barr sounds for my new Palomino QH. Any approvals on that?

Cobalt, don't rush in to naming him. One day it will just pop out of your mouth and you will realize that's it and it suits him to a T.

For me it depends on the type of riding you're doing. Also the breed. Like I am going to put Bar in my horses show name because he's got QH bloodlines. He shines gold in the sun so its Mr. Gold Barr.
I also like Stormy, cisco is great, tango and mr.cash.
