Iroc might just be a version of "I Rock". Which of course means nothing.
Seems strange that a reputable breeder wouldn't have put their farm initials at the beginning of his registered name, though.
My gelding's registered name is DMD Casper. DMD are the initials of the breeding farm from where he came.
The AHA only changes the registered names of geldings, and only those geldings who haven't already shown and won A rated and above awards. That way, there's no confusion over names. They also won't change it more than once, so you have to be sure you can live with his new name.
If you're planning to show him in rated, Arabian shows, his registered name will be his show name. If you plan to show him in nonbreed shows, it doesn't matter what you call him.
Just some food for thought. I've always disliked changing a horse's registered name. What barn name you give him is your business.
