Talking I need a showname for my new gelding... With pics!

I bought (well my mum bought) a 7yo 16.1hh brown tb gelding, he has been off the track since April 2010 and won 4 races from 18 starts during his career. He was imported from Australia to race in New Zealand, and his race name was Fuji Extreme, his paddock name is Mitchell, Mitch for short.
We live on a dairy farm, which is called "Kaikauru" - (Maori for Land of the cabbage tree).

I plan to showjump him, once I have built more topline on him and gotten him working his back end properly.
My goal is to compete in the sj ring at our local sports day in february 2011, but if we work well together before then (which we are atm) and if there are any other shows I would like to take him, but seing as I've only had him a few weeks I might just do flat classes on him.

The name doesn't necessarily have to have anything to do with his race name, paddock name, or the farm name, I just put them up anway.

This Is Mitchell..

Since his real name sounds Japanese, you could use any number of Japanese words.

Fujisan (mt. Fuji)

Fuji Haiyai (fuji fast)

Haiyai (fast)

Hayaku (quickly)
Kaory ("ka o ri ") Fragrance

Yume no Fuji (fuji of my dreams)

Gambarou (gam ba row) Let's do it!


If you like the idea of a Japanes word, tell me one or a certain feeling and I would try to find a good word for that.

Ironically enough his sire is a Japanese horse haha.
Sire: Fuji Kiseki (JPN 1992)
Dam: Smoochin' (USA 1982)

I quite like Hayaku and Gambarou..The only problem is that the announcer's at shows always seem to have either a speech disability or dyslexia haha.

And in saying that I feel sorry for one of my friends who has the Dutch Warmblood "Makelaar" - Imagine trying to pronounce that before she gets over the first jump haha. Its pronounced Ma-Kill-R but nobody says it that way.

Seeing as I don't need to bother registering him yet I could just chop and change his name through shows haha, just to confuse people at the shows :L

Just like my mare bubbles was shown under either "bubbles" or "eye of the storm" (personality is like that of the eye of a storm, calm, and then the sides of it hit suddenly and whoops there we go we're off and running)
