    Default Apologize for yet another naming thread......I need a show name by Monday!!!!

    I apologize in advance for posting another name thread, didn't think I would need to, but Coggins is being drawn on Monday and I need a show name for my new guy! Help!!!!
    I have been at it for a few months, and haven't really come up with anything I love. Now I just have a headache from trying to think
    He is a 2.5 OTTB, bay with a star, and the unlikely registered name of "Silver Delight".......see why I am looking for a show name
    Here are a few pictures to get the juices flowing!

    Connor works fine with me.
    If you think he can pin, how about Opportunity Knocks?

    My favorite ever horse name is Courageous Comet. Obvs, that is a no-go.

    But is there an [adjective] [noun] combination that works (or the reverse)?

    Bold + ?
    Brave +
    Courageous +
    Gallant +
    Intrepid +
    Resolute +
    Steadfast +
    Valiant +

    Either that, or pick a name of a hero/character from a fave book/movie.

    He is adorable!
    My 15 year old daughter shows our bay morgan gelding under "R.J. Bunker" because his name is RJ. Suits him, he is a chauvanistic turd.

    Anyway, she has a few suggestions for you:
    Double Dog Dare Ya
    Hellbent for Leather
    Without a Clue (this was for her 3yo)
    Tople$$ (her totally inappropriate favorite)
    Can't Touch This
    Better Than A Chevy
    Money in the Bank
    My Alibi

    Good Luck!

    I adore the suggestion of Constellation- and it 'goes' with the sound of his barn name of Conner, too!!
    Two Stars made me think of an Eclipse and it looks like a lunar eclipse on his star....

    hhhmmmm

    What a CUTE CUTE CUTE horse. Such a sweet face!!!

    I am sorry to be so confuzzled about what the heck is the big deal about a show name (am more familiar with the concept that per USEF/USDF/etc that the horse shows under its registered name - and of course Coggins paperwork technically must identify a registered horse by that name and registry number) but the perfect one already is in your sig line, either the Where Am I or the Handbasket.

    Great suggestions so far......I like Constellation, In Disguise, Ostentatious, My Alibi and Justa Star. Keep 'em coming

    As far as a show name goes, once you pick one, it kind of has to stick. You don't have to show under their registered name for USEF, and right now, we are just going to be doing our local circuit and VHSA associate shows. I just need to have his official show name on the coggins, which is why I need to decide before Monday

    Thanks for the compliments too! I think he is really cute, and he is super sweet I am loving my baby so far!!!

    Why don't you call him Condor? Isn't that the name on the photos?

    I am glad I checked back, as I learned something! By the way, I also looked at http://www.aphis.usda.gov/vs/nahss/e...an_10_2007.pdf and you are right (I was not), that the horse's registered name is not specified as a requirement. In the times I have had the test done though, the Vets in question all wanted the registered name and used it, so I thought it was a requirement. I just thought of a great name! How about 'The Winner Is'!?

    Condor is the "goofy" barn name my trainer gave him (and it has to be said in the appropriate forceful manner ) He would shoot me if I used it as a show name I did threaten to name him "The Mighty Condor" though
    Where am I, and what am I doing in this handbasket???
