Hi, HorseForum'ers!

Alright, I'm pregnant, as some of you know, and going through the "name list process." I was wondering if naming your child the same as your horse was weird? Not naming AFTER the horse, just having the same name... For example, these names appear on my "name list":

• Cooper (also the name of my Quarter pony)
• Cody (also the name of my Vanner)
• Kassidy (also the name of my Vanner)
• Caoimhe (also a Vanner)
• Lyyli (my Friesian)

I didn't name most of these horses, (I picked out Caoimhe) but like the names. Of course I have picked other names, too, but these are just some that...happen to be the same!

Would to be too creepy if they (horse and child) had the same name? Just looking for opinions here.

Thanks,

Maggie

I guess I'm going to be the one to disagree with you on that one,
no offense, just my opinion...don't get me wrong I love my horses,
but I'm not going to give my child the same name. :shock: :p

How many months are you along? I'm 3 months and a few days. :)

I'm going to have to agree that I would not want to name my child after any of my horses or other animals that I've had/have. I love my horses/animals but I don't feel the need to share their names.
My kids have names that are recycled from parents,grandparents and etc. to show respect for our heritage and our loved ones.
(also, names that are easy to pronounce and understand by others is helpful in their futures. Kids are curel and choosing names that are too unique may buy them a ticket to the laugh factory)
