    Default Need filly "D" names. Desperately!!

    I hate to admit this, but I have a filly from last year that I can't seem to name! She is bay with 3 whites and a star and snip. All the other babies have great names, and I just call this girl "Salva Filly". She really must have a D name.

    The other babies have the following names:

    Darlington
    Diva
    Dalton
    Denali
    Dresnick

    She is Dutch and her father is Tango, and mother is Salva. The dutch often name fillies similar to their dam, but starting with the letter of the year. "Dalva" just doesn't sound too exciting to me!

    She looked alot like a kangroo when she was born. Very upright in the neck and had big doe eyes and floppy ears when she was born. Looked alot like this:

    Here are some ideas:
    Dalvada (dal-vaeda)
    Dalvadra (dal-vaedra)
    Dalvanna

    Help!

    Dharma

    And don't feel bad. My 2005 "D" filly didn't have a name until she was 6 months old. It finally came time to go to the inspection and I HAD to pick one. I had been calling her "baby" for 6 months so it took a while for her name to stick. My husband wanted me to name her "Da Baby." He is *so* funny (or thinks he is!)

    I'm not much good at names but how about Dawnfire? Kind of sounds a bit Native but I liked it!

    Alagirl...you realize Datura is a poisonous/hallucinogenic plant? ;-)

    Good names, guys! Very, very creative!

    Inca, she's over a year old already! She was my first born last year - Feb 16! Ha, ha! Poor little (big) Salva Filly! What name did you choose, Inca?

    I also thought of the Digeridoo name! I really thought she looked like a Kangaroo at birth! Darlington looked like a baby Caribou. She was seriously so vertical (like a Kangaroo) in the neck at birth that attempting to halter break her was dangerous! With her neck being so upright, she'd come back against the contact and almost fling herself over backwards. I instantly gave up halter breaking her until her neck relaxed.

    Does anyone else make a list of baby names and goes out to the foal and says, "Are you So-and-So?", just so I can say the name, see the foal, and see if the name fits?

    I keep a list of names when I get inspired so I don't forget them. It's easier for my breed as I have no naming conventions that they impose on me. I do have certain conventions of my own I follow like using "gold" in the names of foals that are cream dilutes and offspring of my Cayuse "Gold" stallion.

    I finally settled on Dyani for my long-unnamed filly. So far, I have not been able to find any other horse with that name so am glad she has something unique. People have trouble spelling it if they hear it and pronouncing it if they see it, though!

    Ah, yes, Angel's Trumpet is quiet poisonous, but very pretty!

    Dawnfire is cool, but then I am a nerd

    Disalva
    Deesalva
    Dynalva

    If you want to stick with KWPN naming traditions, the above are along those lines.

    However, I've had a filly name picked and won't get the chance to use it now: Dior
    Proud Momma:

    Imax - Fresstyle x Juventus x Rubinstein
    2014 - Sister to IMAX (hopefully)

    Well the species name for a wallaby (like a small kangaroo) is Parma. Add a "d" and you get Dharma.

    I like the name Dahlia. She was a really great race mare of a few years back.

    I am superstitious about naming an unborn foal, but I do make a list of 'hypothetical' foal names.
    I do just wait for the name to come to me, that fits the baby.
    I have a filly in the barn right now, also a rising yearling, with no registered name.
    Nothing has come to me yet .......
    I might have to ask for help next!

    I have four "D" babies....

    Dolce Vita
    Dateline (her daddy is Hotline)
    Divo Ricco (his mom is Rica)
    Daimler (as in Mercedes Benz)

    I try to make lists of names before the babies arrive but seem to get worse and worse about it the longer I breed. My first two are due the third week of April and I haven't even started a name list yet! So maybe I need to start a separate thread asking for "E" names - you guys come up with good stuff!
