    Default SHOW NAME NEEDED BY MAY!!! HELP!!!!

    I have a grey 15.3hh OTTB mare named Fiji and i desperately am searching for a showname for her.
    I hate her racing name (Fiji Times Express) and i don't want to show in rated shows with her just as "Fiji" it's too plain.

    I was thinking maybe Viti Levu (because it's the main island of the country Fiji)
    but i don't know if that's good or not.

    Any ideas or opinions?!
    Thanks!

    Polynesian or Polynesia could work - Fiji was originally settled by Polynesian people.

    It's in the Pacific - So perhaps Pacific Isle, or Pacific Cruise, or something like that.

    Since she's a grey and a mare, how about South Pacific Cyclone.

    this one is definitely in the running, but she's kinda feminine, so maybe like, South Pacific Storm? does that sound any more feminine?

    We publish a book called The Incredible Little Book of 10,001 Names for Horses. Maybe that would help?

    How about:

    Fiji Snow

    Nah.. you want it powerful! It used to be cool when hurricanes and cyclones were only named for women! I liked the tough/scary/dangerous association!

    Loved South Pacific. Bali Hai? Maruata is Tahitian for "the shadow of the clouds". I think it's kind of pretty.

    Just sit quietly. It will come to you. Horses tell us their names.

    How about a name using the Fijian language?

    vaka-viti ou=Fijian Cloud
    vaka-viti vula=Fijian Moon
    Kamica=Sweet
    Turaga=Chief
    Yanuyanu Marama= Island Lady

    granted, some of those would be tongue-twisters! Well, anyway, you might have fun here: http://www.geocities.com/fijidiction...jian_dict.html

    I actually like her name now "Fiji." I prefer one worded names though.

    Island Lady. I like that.
    People call themselves animal lovers, then let their dogs chase the squirrels. You're scaring the shit out of the squirrels, you schmuck!
