    Nice names all - but I think Well Spotted shows real talent! (sorry, no suggestions). I usually find you have to pick a name, or two, and let her "wear" it for a while before it begins to fit.

    Thank you, Foxtrot's!

    I agree with you and monalisa -- I like to get to know an animal before giving him or her a name--I usually find that the animal will sort of name itself, or that one of the names I've had in mind suits it better than the others I've thought of.

    Default Y'all ROCK!

    I really love Clairvoyant (7 horses with that name registered with USEF) and Chick Flick (1 pony reg).

    I also still love Clarity (3 reg).

    What about Claire Choice?

    Wellspotted - my trainer owns the dam & we thought he was going to name her Lurid Remarque but he chickened out and did Last Remarque.

    I am horrible at show names...I can do dog names, barn names, etc. I have owned my current ammy hunter since he was 3 off the track. He came with the barn name Opie (JC registered Opnus) and a week before our first show, I registered him as "Opie Taylor", like from the Andy Griffith show. It does fit him even 12 years later, a trouble making red head! Ack!

    Please keep 'em coming...

    Good move, trainer!

    I like Pirateer's suggestion, Au Claire, too.

    Claire Star

    Star Bay (unless it sounds too much like a bay on the Starship Enterprise!)
    Enterprise (finding a name for her is certainly an enterprise)

    what color bay is she? blood bay/dark bay/etc.?

    Baydazzled? (bedazzled? NOTHING like "aghasted" -- I still say that is NOT a word! )

    Cordovan Bay (if she is blood bay/mahogany bay she is sort of the color of cordovan leather?, and I Cordova is an Anglicized version of Cordoba)

    OK--this one I really like--look at this map of Spain, near Cordoba--

    Go south a couple of inches down the A4--
    "La Victoria"

    Default Claire De Lune

    Love that name, and the song...so pretty. Very hunter-y. Id take that over any of the other names mentioned. Puts a very pretty and soft image in your head, especially if you know the song!!

    I also like Clairvoyant,

    but if you want to combine the parents' names... what about Remarcabal ?

    You could name her after that city in Wisconsin (I think it's Wisconsin..), "Eau Claire" . But I would spell it "Oh! Claire"

    La Victoria.
