    Default Another naming thread

    DD has a new horse.He is a paint/Warmblood cross. The paint areas are now fleabitten so he pretty much looks white. He is 17 hands and has some bone to him. The plan is to show him in the jumpers. She likes the idea of having a car name in the name ( long story). Her last horse was Bentley. She is leaning towards using McLaren for the car name this time. Any suggestions on soemthing to put with that or do you think she should keep it simple or any other thoughts on a name for a jumper with an exotic/expensive car name?
    Those on facebook can see his pic here

    I think naming a jumper after a fast car is a cute idea. I will consult DH and his Gran Tourismo racing game and get back to you...

    Why settle for McLaren when you could have Bugatti!

    So many horses have sports car names. There's a Ducati and Bentley at my barn right now.

    Why not called him Honda? lol

    You know, I thought that too. But since someone listed it with a bunch of car names I thought perhaps ther was some sort of Ducati car as well.

    Go old school, DeLorean! The color would be appropriate, too!

    I listed it. Just thinking of fast rides not so much cars and outside the cars only box . Use it's a crotch rocket.

    Hubby and I went through the list on his racing game and our favorite was Renault: easy for the announcer and they've been successful rally and Formula 1 racing cars for years. (For that matter, why not Formula One?)

    I'm sure Ferrari, Lambourghini, and such have been done a lot, so we were trying to find something different. That's just our two cents.

    Another idea popped into my head: what about Le Mans (the race)?

    The Gran Turismo game uses a ton of famous racecars, so maybe look through the description on wikipedia and see if something strikes you

    Maybe a pony, but this guy's 17H: not the best visual.

    I have to agree with JBCool about the visual though!
    I am thrilled with the name suggestions you are coming up with!
    After discussion last night, Bucatti is in the running. I will have to run the latest and greatest past her later.
    One of the reasons we were going with McLaren was because his barn name could be Mickey. As in the song" Hey Mickey you're so fine, you're so fine you blow my mind!"
    While we have been in limbo on the name, we have called him Baloo ( from the Jungle book) so that would work as a barn name with Bugatti - sort of.
    I don't know how to fix being able to see the picture. Any other ideas to be able to share it would be welcomed! We think he might be something pretty special. I would love to hear other, non-biased, opinions!

    How about the newest "it" car? FISKER

    http://onward.fiskerautomotive.com/en-us/karma/

    or the model name which is "Karma." I understand that Justin Bieber drives one...

    oh, yeah, Bieber's is chrome.
