    Default ok, I never ask for this kind of help, but............

    I can't come up with any names for the royal child! LOL

    As many of you know, my Elite Dutch mare, Nina by Voltaire has earned the title "Nina the Queena". Appropriately, her 2006 filly by Contendro is Contessa. Nina is due any second to Cathalido and I would like some "royal" names, but I can think of nothing.

    That isn't quite true............I've come up with "Coronation. "

    Names can start with C for colts or N for fillies.

    THanks to all of you who are soooo much more artistic than I!

    I'm sorry, but the perfect name for her filly is Ninotchka. Best movie ever, and Greta Garbo is royal enough for me.

    Colt could be Charlemagne. Or Caesar.

    I like Nikita for a filly "N" name - not really royal, but a great film character (La Femme Nikita)

    Sorry I can't help Holly - I suck worse at names and already crying for help with C names, too. What I wanted to say is: You are going to have one F A B U L O U S baby, for sure! Fingers crossed for a hassle - free birth!!

    But, but...
    why not Ninotchka? After her mother, and you have to admit that Greta Garbo was one of the most beautiful humans who ever lived.

    Confianza

    Not really a "royal" name per se, but I love how it sounds and the meaning behind it.

    Confianza (English: trust) is a native Latin American form of mutual reciprocity. In the context of interpersonal relationships, its presence indicates that both parties recognize a mutual duty to honor their relationship by extending specially favorable treatment.

    ok, Viney, just for you............

    http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0031725/

    and Wikopedia says the follwing............
    The girl's name Ninotchka \n(i)-notch-ka, nin(ot)-chka\ is a variant of Nina (Spanish, Hebrew), and the meaning of Ninotchka is "little girl; great-granddaughter".

    The baby name Ninotchka sounds like Ninochka and Ninoshka.

    Ninotchka is a very rare female first name and a very rare surname (source: 1990 U.S. Census). Displayed below is the baby name popularity trend for the girl's name Ninotchka

    Except for the fact that the Roman emperor Caligula was mad as a hatter, had dozens of people killed during his rages, appointed his horse to be his prime minister and got bumped off by his palace administration, Caligula is a good name for a WB sport horse.

    One of Constantine's sons, also Roman Emperor, was named Constans. Assassinated, as so many of them were. Claudius might be unlucky, since it means lame. Commodus has an unfortunate connotation in English. Caracalla has the famous baths in Rome and spent a fortune on the city. The best of the C name emperors was Carus who was appointed late in his life but went to the East and defeated the Persians. He has a son named Carinus.

    For a colt, you could always just put Czar in front of a name you like to make it a C name and regal =).

    North Hollands are blue.
