    What is his breeding? You could incorporate part of his breeding into his name. My favorite Shakespere play is Othello, but it's been used a lot probably. You might think Othello and add part of his registered name. I'll think some more.

    After I clicked off, I noticed a thread of "Black actors who ride" or something like that in "Off course". You could cruise the thread for ideas. For example I love everything Samuel L. Jackson does, I would be inclined to name him something that had to do with his movies and call him Sam for short. "Satchmo" is good, but alas it is also probably been overused.

    Changing Lanes

    Sea of Love

    Strictly Business

    Samuel L Jackson movies: I like Changing Lanes because it also has the conotation of changing from a track horse to an event horse.

    I had an awesome black TB named Espresso Forte, barn name Coffee. You could try something with a coffee theme.

    I like the Noir (had a mare called Liberty Noire). In Italian, il nero and in portugueuse preto mean black. You could take something from the sire or dam name and add some piece of those.

    I'm also fond of Midnight anything for black horses, as well as names with Wizard in them, Onyx is the black stone, Obsidian is also black,

    "Black Rain" is a fun song,

    Black Lightning (Jefferson Pierce) was one of the first major African American superheroes to appear in DC Comics.

    Is the registered name so awful that you can't use it? (I have a couple with really bad names, so I can understand why you'd want a change). It's when horses get name changes that their breeding gets lost. When the breeding gets lost, it's hard to trace down good ancestors that are productive for current performance horse.

    How about Incubus, for a name if you do want a change.
