She's lovely! Good luck on picking a name. It took me months to come to grips with Lillie's name because I didn't like it. It only took about two weeks to find a name for Lyric. If you don't like her name..change it. You could name her Thursday for the day you bring her home. What about Halloween/October/theme type names? I like odd, unique names. (which is probably why I didn't like Lillie at all.) Here are some I wrote down:


I love the names of the Gods, (Aries, Aphrodite, Athena, and I LOVE this name Isis.)

Hope some of these help. Good luck!

Do you have any favorite movies or shows that you like the names out of?

"Riding a horse is not a gentle hobby, to be picked up and laid down like a game of solitaire. It is a grand passion. It seizes a person whole and, once it has done so, he will have to accept that his life will be radically changed." -Ralph Waldo Emerson

Oh wow good names!
I have a few that Im leaning towards.
And Tsima, which is Blackfoot for "Where to" Which is good for a horse :)

Keep them coming guys!
Ive decided that I am going to get her. I want a horse I can ride, and Savhanna is too much for me. So she will be mine tomorrow!
Unique names are the best!

I really wanted to give Noah an Irish name (since I'm irish!) but couldn't find anything that fit. There seems to be a much better selection for girls! If there's a word in particular (pretty, lucky, friend, etc) that you like, you can look up the word in different languages for some unique ideas. I acutlly ended up with Noah because it means gentle and comforting.

i took Paul's name and added a twist. As a teacher, normal names have a tendency to remind us of the poorly behaved students we have had in our classroom as did the name Paul. I said this students name so often during the school year it was crazy. so the husband and i loved the "soprano's" mini-series so we renamed Paul=Paulie Walnuts. He is one of the big Italian mobsters henchmen but it suits paul to a "T". he is big and bulky and doesn't let anyone push him around.
