name ideas

hey.i'm not sure if this belongs in this section of the forum but anyway... I am having trouble thinking of names to register my horse as.

He is a 4 y/o TB/paint 15.1hh. he's brown/burnt buckskin/dapply kind of colour. (he's still choosing what colour he wants to be) with one white sock, four really long black stockings to his elbows and above hocks. he has a white star which kind of leaks into a snip. His nickname is Sniper which i quite like but i do know of another horse registered as sniper. I do like the name and for a registered name i wold like to keep that a part of it. he will be registered with ANSA and i hope to do showing and a bit of showjumping with him.
If anyone has any ideas it'd be great if you could help me out.

I know you said you wanted sniper as part of the registered name but I thought id suggest...

Sharp Shooter for reg name "Sniper" makes great barn name then :)

Languages and Their Uses

When I have trouble naming a horse (sadly, this happens to be often), I look into the horse's breed(s)'s countr(y)(ies) from which it/they originated. Whatever language is used, I like to go to Google Translate and look up different (pretty) words that seem to fit the horse.

For example, I named my horse Elegante Estrellas, because the breeds (Galiceno and Paso Fino) were both Spanish. In English, it means Elegant Star, and I chose it because of her flowing movement and her silver-like coat.

Just an idea. I hope you find it useful!
