Foal names

I am bad about naming the foals here or the rescue horses. My last two foals were not named until they were 14 months for the colt an d the filly 9 months ofkl. We still call them the colt and the filly
Thje arab colt is named Ladies Midnight Man DBG
Thje rescue filly is simply Rio
I ahve three mares about to foal in the next 3 weeks. All bred on the same weekend.
The sire is Midnight Star he is bred to
Esquires Dancer his half sister straight Egyptian Chestnut Rabianco
The nest mare is Krystal Flame D Purer polish black daughter of Bask Flame.
The third is a dark bay mare Blacklady Charabi Grandduaghter of BlackLord Arabi
Dam of the colt above

I usually name foals with a combination of their sires an dams name.
Since Star sires more fillies and most are black even with hs half sister all 4 have been black not bay

Krystal was bred to a black grandson of Doc Oleana Got very nice blac gelding I know own him His name is SLC Black Flame
I am thinking of using Zivi, Sotah, or Aristiva or Bayon if they are fillies
Midnight Dancer, Midnight Bask I am somewhat stuck if I use Blacklady as aI find that might be deemed offensive Mdnight Arabi maybe.
All these foals will be polish and egyptian. My stallion is half Polish and half egyptian any suggestions. Shalom

We've got a bit of a night, star and black theme happening here - and obviously also an Arabian theme. Given the great inroads the Arabs made into early astronomy (and the number of different stars with Arabic names) I think it might be pretty easy to set a theme here!

Midnight Star x Esquires Dancer
If colt: Midnight Arrakis (the Dancer star)
If filly: Midnight Alula (the First)

Midnight Star x Krystal Flame D
If colt: Midnight Alioth (the Black Horse)
If filly: Midnight Tania (the Second)

Midnight Star x Blacklady Charabi
If colt: Midnight Aldebaran (the Follower)
If filly: Midnight Talitha (the Third)

Other colt names include Alpharatz (the navel of the Stallion) and Saiph (the Sword.
Other filly names include Sirrah (the navel of the Mare) and Shedir (the Breast).

Or if one has a small white spot like a star as a marking, it could be called Heka (the White Spot). And if it has a blaze it could be called Kurhah (the Blaze of the Horse).

Heaps of fun could be had with star names! And that's not even starting on constellations!

Nice answer EHOD!

I'm lost on names... I tend to just name animals with what pops into my head when I see them for the first time. I named a calf Swippet once because of her head marking.
I've got at least one baby (calf) coming this year if not a second baby (foal) that I have to name. I'll think up something!

I figure if a girl wants to be a LEGEND, she should just go ahead and be one. ~Calamity Jane
