My horses name is jitterbug, so I call him bugaboo, bugs, bugsies or if he is being difficult I yell "behave horse, behave!" and he just snorts, lol. Or sometimes I call him minion, depends on his mood. Aerial? I would call him air head :P

I know a man named Ariel. Great guy. It's a relatively common name in Mexico. He's a hell of a roper.

Anyway, all of my male animals, regardless of their name, end up being called "Bud," "Buddy," or "Baby boy" at some point. Except my older dog (6yo Aussie/st Bernard). He's "Old man."

My horse's name is Aires, so there isn't much to shorten it to, so he gets called "Baby boy." My older dog is named Cash, so he sometimes gets called "Casherific" and "Casheroo." My dad calls him "Casher." If he's being a goobtard, he's "Big dumb red dog." Abby, the puppy, is "Abbers," "Abby Wabby," and "Abby-roo." Jasper, the kitten, is just "Jazz." Cosmo, the adult cat, is "MoMo."

Our names just evolve...or don't. We never could find a better name for our QH, "Ro Go Bar" (1982-209, RIP), so it stuck. "Merry Boy's Hart" became, "Trogdor", "Long Arm of the Law" became "Sweet Cup&Cakes", "Warren's Cindy" bc both "Sweet Pea" and "Cindy Lou".
I don't like to give an animal a name that another one has had. My DH insists on calling the one cat we have left, "Tomkins", but Tomkins showed up as a starving kitten when we took him, and only a year later ate somebody's poison, then went down to the basement and died. Cats don't usually do that unless they are attached to you. So...our current cat's REAL name is "Toy Cat."
Our mongrel dog that we got from an auction litter took one week to name. We ended up naming her "Pygma", or "Pyg".
My Vet complains that she can't keep the names straight, but once they stick, they stick.

Hope that you fall in love with "Trot", like I did!

My horse's registered name is RDR Independence Day, his barn name is Indy. My son nicknamed him Cindy, just to bug me.

My horses are always called by their nicknames. No one seems to know they have "real names." Cat (registered name Catalina Comet) is always Miss Kitty or just Kitty. Baby Girl (whose registered name is Flash of Lightening, making her official barn name epically unrelated) is either BG, Hufflepuff, Huffle, Huff, Honey, Baby, Sweetheart... So many names.
