    Cool Show name help needed - trying a poll

    I am in desperate need of a show name for my 15 month old filly. I am trying to get her lifetime USEF registration done before the end of this year so I can get the discount!

    She is by Cabalito (Hano) out of a Holsteiner/TB mare and will hopfully be my faithful AO hunter one day. I am in LOVE! LOVE! LOVE with this filly and she has been a joy to deal with since I bought her as a weanling.

    Her barn name is Claire and she is a big bay girl with 3 socks and a star, stripe, & snip. She is a lovely mover with an amazing temperment.

    She is not able to be registered with any applicable breed registries, due to the fact that her dam's sire (Lured) is unregistered...something about his papers not making it over the pond when he was imported. Anyway, my point is, that her show name does not have to start with a C after her sire, but I have been leaning in that direction just because.

    I am sorry to bother y'all with yet another naming thread!

    I am also open to any suggestions!

    What's her dam's name/pedigree? I can say that I don't like Clair Bear - too cutesy.

    Her dam is Last Remarque by Lured (Holsteiner) out of Remarqued (TB).

    Thanks!

    There are probably other horses out there named Clarity.
    I would check the USA Eq horse listings. I also think it is hard to name a horse until you know its personality and what it looks like in person.

    Just FWI- Clever Trick has been taken as a TB name. One of my guy's relatives, actually.

    BTW, Claire De Lune sounds pretty, nice image.

    I also like Clairvoyant, but the only one I didn't care for at all was Claire Bear. You don't have to stay with known words either. My horses name is the word for 'gift' in Tahitian (or something like that-its been a while) I found it on a translation website, then I changed the first letter to the same as her daddy. It's a very nice name, easy to pronounce and short-which I like.

    Make sure you get the USEF number before October 31 do not wait until the end of the year. You will then get "grandfathered" in and not have to pay the new $30 USHJA horse fee that starts Nov. 1st that you will have to now get in order to show.

    I actually like Claire Bear but not for this particular filly. If she were a pony, maybe ...

    If her breeding were Irish I'd suggest Clare Bay, or one of the actual bays off the coast of County Clare (Donegal Bay, etc.). I mean, you could name her Clare Bay anyway.

    Plain Speaking (clarity and "remarque" [remark])?

    Fair Claire (she's got Fair Trial on her dam's side; he's got Phalaris and Scapa Flow)

    Remarkable (has someone else already suggested this? if so, sorry to repeat)

    Repeat Please (just occured to me; "Last Remarque"; and "repeat that last clear round, please" )

    It's Clear to Me

    Lasca (sort of combines "Caba" from her sire and "Last" from her dam and there was a quote in a James Michener book: "Lasca used to ride on a mouse gray mustang by my side...)

    Klara (German "Claire")

    All Clear

    Clearly Stated

    I like Claire De Lune!
    Clairvoyant
    But I like it too!

    How about "Simply Remarqable"? Or "Clever Remarque"??? Or, "Clever Chick"....

    How about "Clairiton"??? You know, like that allergy medication?! Maybe you could get the company to sponsor your classes for you.... Sorry, I'm always thinking of ways to save a buck....

    OK, I can't quit ...

    Cabalito Bay

    Cordoba Bay (Cordoba, Cabalito's sire)

    Her breeding is just begging for "Lurid Remark" but that would not do at all.

    But "Lured" as past tense of "Lure" -- Luring, coursing --

    Claire of Course ???
