Need help naming a horse
So I just got a new horse yesterday. He's a grey Russian Arabian. I am in need of a nice short barn name for him. I'm not fond of his registered name, so we're leaving that out. I'm wanting something that really fits him, is easy for people to remember, but not an overly common horse name (ie Spirit). I'm also a fan of "famous" names from movies, books, comics, etc

He's about 15hh, very smart but goofy horse, a total ham.

So I've been toying with:

But none of them really just make me think "wow, that's the one!" So any ideas would be appreciated.

What's his registered name? Maybe there's a translation in another language which would sound nice?

Sham (King of the Wind by Marguerite Henry about an Arabian stallion who helped found today's Thoroughbreds)

when you see a face like that, you wonder how anyone can NOT think horses are beautiful.

Movie/comic inspired- Casablanca, Archduke Ferdinand, Gambit, Logan, Thor, Captain Handsome (or Captain something lol), Cosmopolis (move title), Robin, Gatsby.
Hopefully that'll give you some inspiration at least hehe. I have a cat named Captain Bruce because my bf wanted Batman or Bruce Wayne and I wanted Captain America lol

He looks like a Victor to me.
