New horse needs a barn name

What can I say, I have a hard time turning down a free horse.

He is an 8 year old reg. Arabian. He is 14.2/14.3ish and flea bitten and dappled gray. He has had dressage training in the past and is described as solid training level (I know the trainer that worked with him and I really like her). He has had nothing done with him in over a year. He has just sat out in the field and gotten grossly obese (but not foundered). He has Egyptian bloodlines, his grandsire is The Mintril.

I grew up owning and showing Arabs, so I am very familiar with the breed.

The problem is that his barn name right now is GW (for no good reason) and I can not call him that. His registered name is The Midnight Patriot. Any suggestions on a better barn name for him?

To avoid any confusions I have a horse named Rain and one named Jewels, I had someone suggest Rain already, but I can't have two horses with the same name.

I like the name Lincoln. Or Theodore. I mean if his registered name's Midnight Patriot, you could stick with the whole US presidents thing if thats where you're from :)
Pics would help

I had thought of Riot and a friend had suggested Revere (like Paul Revere). I think that the presidents thing maybe were GW came from. I just hope they were thinking George Washingtion not George W Bush.

Here is the only picture I have of him. It is from the winter and he is a lot thinner in this picture then he is now.

My friends came up with Snap and I kinda like it. I liked Teddy too, but I was reminded of a mean little pony I knew growing up. I wanted a name that was new in that I have never known a horse with that name. I also wanted it to be single or at most two syllable. After all it is a barn name.

So Snap it is. I have already ordered his halter, bridle, fly mask etc. I had not made up my mind about the name so I will have to order the nameplate for his halter later.
