    Default More Baby Names needed from you creative geniuses.. please

    First one.. I would like B name for..
    Benetton Dream x Whimsical II (Fabrizio du Moulin x Silberpfeil)
    Pretty sure it will be bay as both parents are bay. (Mare is agouti, so can't have a black )
    Second one W Name (this could also be a stellar R name and I could just put a W in front..)
    Wolkentanz II x Rosy Future (Rosentau x Donnerbube)
    This will be a dark ... Mare can't have chestnuts.. Sire is chestnut.. but...

    Thanks guys..

    I do have a couple in the back of my mind.... but they aren't totally grabbing me.. if you know what I mean.

    For the B name I'd suggest "Bailarino" - meaning dancer. If a filly, then the correct form is "Bailarina"

    I love coming up with names!

    B-colt--Bolero, Banderas, Bravado
    B-filly-Ballerina

    W-colt-Winstar,

    R-Rendezvous, Reminiscence, Riviera (filly)
    R-Romero (colt)

    I have a list at home of various names for future foals. It's so much fun to think them up, and then try to fit the name to the personality and look of the foal.

    Not to hijack... but any good creative O names while you all are at it for a solid bay KWPN/OLD colt out of a RIDSH mare? I can't think of any I like! Not even barn names!

    photographer comes tomorrow, but here's a 24-hr old phone pic :-) *proud mama!!**

    When I was looking for R names I thought Rubella sounded pretty as long as you don't know the meaning...

    "Watusi" was a dance (and a song) from the 1960s.

    But it is also a form of the name "Watutsi," which is the name of a tribe in Rawanda and Burundi. Not really sure that the word is PC and it should probably be avoided.

    No name suggestions but fwiw I bred my Rosentau mare to Wolkentanz II as well and got a filly I am pretty happy with (was top foal at Spruce in a large group). Make sure you post pics when baby is here!

    Ok, I take it back I do like the names Wienna and Werona for W line fillies. I love the sound of Wienna but the problem sometimes arrises years down the road in the show ring when the announcer doesn't know to pronounce the W as a V lol.
