Oh No! Not Another Naming Thread! This One Is A Little Different...
Ok...I know everyone gets sick of these naming threads, but I thought the COTHers might be able to figure the perfect name for my new mare. Her name right now is "Honey BooBoo." I cannot emphasize how much I hate that show. I need a show name as well as a barn name.
Here is the catch. I am a Criminology graduate student. I want a name that is a bit unique or meaningful. Something with a criminology or psychological theme....and something catchy.
I was thinking of names like:
"My Happy Place"
"Better Than Prozac"
One I really like is "Institutional Anomie" which is a criminology theory regarding a lack of social norms, which is totally me. I was afraid that would be hard to pronounce at shows. Another one I was playing with was "Sublimation" which is a defense mechanism where socially unacceptable impulses or idealizations are consciously transformed into socially acceptable actions or behavior. I love the theme of that one.
Anyone have any fun or different ideas? I love the names at shows that stand out and make me smile.

"I'm an idealist. I don't know where I'm going, but I'm on my way."
I have thought to call some horse at times Sublimation, as in dry ice changing to vapor.
I think it can mean going from solid to ethereal, good name for a jumper.
I think it is a very nice name for any horse and may suit that grey mare.
One of my favorite legal terms is "Arbitrary and Capricious." I always remind my children that I reserve the right to be completely arbitrary and capricous in all my decision making. "Wanton and Willful" is a good criminal law term.
