Actually, you're both off. It's "ellipsis", plural version "ellipses". There are also elliptical clauses and elliptical sentences, which omit words that lack an element yet are still comprehensible from context. "Fire when ready" is an example--technically, it should say "Fire when you are ready", but we all understand the sentence.
I don't know if "Ellipsis" is something I'd care to yell across the fields as a barn name, but it would be a very cute show name.
thanks for fixing that, i was working ( overnight) and my brain was not functioning!
My thought with Ellipsis was that no one would ever know how to pronouce his show name, but I would call him something like Eli.
I was thinking something along the lines of his apprearance. he was bought after a LONG hiatis from horses. I have been a Marine Wife for the last 17 + years so thats an option too. I think he looks like hot chocolate, but I don't really like food names( alchohol is another story! I had a White Russian before )
I've always like the name Eli, from your idea Ellipsis. Someone also mentioned a "Leo" name, and I thought I'd throw out how that name reminds me of the movie Kate and Leopold, which is cute and adorable. Leo the Leopard App?
I am not up on cordial names nor mixed drinks, but perhaps there is one out there about chocolate and booze...
I do very much like Eli. He looks like an Eli. I really do like Ellipses/is.
There are perhaps some really nice military names. I'm too tired to really think on them, but I do like the Morse Code suggestions...
But I also LOFFFFFF chocolate liqueur. Sheridans is actually two bottles, one of cream liqueur and one of chocolate. You pour them *right* and they layer. Or you just pour 'em and they mix. Either way, YUMMY *and* suitably coloured.
Really, I'm no help at all, but I think he's very loffly. Congratulations.
