I agree that Ivanavinalot is pretty bad.
"Judge Smells" and "Smelly" always come to mind when I am thinking about bad names. And I saw another bad name recently when checking results on Equibase. There was a horse named "But." [img]/infopop/emoticons/icon_rolleyes.gif[/img]

A German Stallion is named *Irish Stew* - I pitied the horse when I first saw his name in the yearling catalog.
You only have to look up the CANTER sites [img]/infopop/emoticons/icon_rolleyes.gif[/img] I think on New England: *Stinko Miss* yuck!
Some of the bad names come from the nomenclature, in Germany the foals are named starting with the letter of the Dam: A colt out of an *N* mare by Nebos was first named *Little Nebos* [img]/infopop/emoticons/icon_rolleyes.gif[/img], then later changed to Lebos, quiet a racehorse.
Another one was *Karin I love you*, cantering around Southwest German track, named after the owners wife. The filly was sold, I don't know however if it coincided with the divorce.

JER: I didn't like Hoovergethekeys until I heard the story behind the name. The owner had trained his dog Hoover to retrieve his car keys for him and so he would say "Hoover, get the keys." I don't necessarily like the name, but all together it's kind of cute.
Another one is Tali'sluckybusride, which sounds awful at first, but she was named after the owner's dog Tali. They were either waiting for a bus or walking by when one was stopped and Tali was on the bus and got off and they adopted her. It's a cute story.

Here are a few that are interesting but maybe not well known:
A mare named: One Good Wack......barn name Wacker.
I owned: I Am Rampage....he was. [img]/infopop/emoticons/icon_rolleyes.gif[/img]
How about the horse named Somfas....remember what that stands for???? [img]/infopop/emoticons/icon_wink.gif[/img]
I always like the name Judge Smells....I've seen some of his offspring at breed shows and thought it was kinda funny. My mare was bred to him before I bought her and has a son by the lame name of Go Bear [img]/infopop/emoticons/icon_rolleyes.gif[/img]
