Help me name my new horse (to be)! :)

So this is "Skipper" he is a 17.2 hand warmblood/morgan cross. I had ridden him in lessons for a few months, and they finally offered him to me because I was the only one who ever rode him! He is definitely a handful; you have to tell him who's boss and he's a grouchy grumpy big boy, but he's very smart, absolutely loves jumps, and has alot of personality and I just adore him. Me and him just seemed to click and for some reason I think all his idiosyncrasies are cute LOL. But now I'm rambling lol. Basically I've put a deposit on him, and he'll be all mine in January, but the name "Skipper" just doesn't suit him.

I was thinking...
-Oscar (the grouch lol)

But I Just can't decide! What do ya'll think? Any new suggestions?

Tha name Ben (big ben) comes to mind... or Judge, Commander, Big Red, Sterling. Goliath isn't bad either.

I love Mr. Darcy! I would never have come up with that. I like Big Ben too, but Mr. Darcy, that's classic!!
Why look farther?

I think he looks more like an OSCAR.

I had a dog named darcy and a coach named darcy (both female). As a first name, or in this case only name it seems too girly.

Love the idea of Oscar though. Fits his look and personality it seems.
