I am totally stumped about a name for my 2011 filly out of a TB mare, and by Banderas.

Her barn name is Bella, but that is not required to be in the registered name. It DOES have to start with a B.

Any ideas? eventual goal with this girl is eventual jumper/derby's, and hopefully hunters depending on her movement (which looks fantastic IMO so far :D)

She looks like she's going to be a cherry bay, and just has a little star, should mature in the 16.2 range...but she's HUGE for her age, both height and width (on a diet per vet).

I really want something simple. I live in the south, and in a beachy area if that helps.

a few pictures.

What's the name of the dam?

I used to own a horse called Bristol Bay Belle. I'd share.:)

Her dam's name is Faith, but I honestly don't care if that is worked into her name or not.

Believe would make a great show name. You can still call her Belle.

^^ I really like believe!!! and Blind Faith :)

I really would prefer something simple thats a one or two word name. I've noticed that warmbloods tend toward the "simple"

OK wow there's a lot of Believe's recorded with USEF. 5-6 Blind Faith's, but I could live with that.

BABY GOT BACK!!!

"I like big butts and I cannot lie! You other brothers can't deny! When a girl walks in with a itty-bitty waist and that round thing in your face: YOU GET SPRUNG....!"

Sorry, I couldn't resist. :winkgrin:

The first photo's caption brought that song to mind immediately - and it starts with a "B". :lol:

^^^ Hubby wants to name her Bodacious...um, no. I am SO not going into the hunter ring on a horse named that. if it was a colt he was pushing for Boom Boom Pow, lol.

Love the suggestions so far! Thanks :) Why does picking a name have to be so hard??? Just keep thinking about how this will be her name for the rest of her life...plus I want to be able to show her under her reg. name as well...

I was thinking about getting a Banderas baby too! Decided to wait on the breeding, but he is just so impressive!

What about...
Beautiful Bandit
Bella Bandida (spanish for beautiful bandit haha)

or if you use the grand sire's name (Balou du Rouet)...

^ LOVE Beach Music!!! There's 11 recorded with USEF (mostly geldings oddly enough). I had thought about doing a Beach boy theme and debated "Be With Me", but I'm eh because of the number of words.

I like Buona Fiducia...but Hubby would prefer "english" and I don't want anything an announcer is going to be stumbling over.


Blue Seduction (or Balou Seduction ;) ) is an option, that goes on the list!!!

I dunno if she will be amazing enough for Balou My Mind...wouldn't want a name like that if she ends up just eh...

Really really like the Beautiful bandit/Bella Bendida too :)

Thanks!!! Sorry if I'm over picky ;)

I dont often add to name threads, but...there was a local band I used to follow (way up north in upstate NY) and you might consider their name:

Bahama Mama............
