Lightbulb New horse to me - need a name!! :?

So I am getting a beautiful mare, she's 19 years old which is perfect for me and my family. She's a dapple grey. The person I am buying her from lives near me, and since I felt that I would forever feel like it was "her" horse, I've decided to rename her myself to make her more "mine". Problem is, I have too many names and I can't narrow it down! Hoping you guys can help me out?! Here are my choices so far...
  • Luna (for Moon)
  • Odette (Odie for short?) (Odette was the name of the swan princess in the ballet Swan Lake)
  • Bailey
  • Lady
  • Maisy
  • Antigone (Greek goddess)
  • Epona
  • Ellie
  • Lola
  • Chanel

She's definitely a Bailey :) just so happens that is also my best friend's name, and he's a horse person too!

I like Chanel. Pretty name for a pretty mare.

She's lovely.
What is her name now? If she has had it 19 years maybe she is familiar with it.
Unless it's Maude or something, maybe she likes her name.

I think Persephone would be nice

Two horses are standing at a hitching rail. One horse turns to the other and says, "My name is Whoa Damit. What's yours?"
(Sorry...couldn't help myself.)

I think a horse will often name themselves. You have them for awhile and learn their personality and some names will fit better than others.
Mare in avatar came with the name Sassy, (which is part of her registered name). She was rather plump so my husband started calling her Sassy Fatassy. Sassy fits but he had to drop the Fatassy part as she is now in pretty good weight.
