    Everyone is running from something. Especially this person I'm chasing.

    I don't want to go too cutesy - he needs to be a respected dressage and event pony . Dunedin is taken, but I love Dùn Èideann. I've never even thought about the origins of that city's name before.

    There used to be a dun eventer in the UK called "The Dun Thing" which was a play on the British expression "The Done Thing" as, in, the correct thing to do. Horse was owned by a woman who married Sir Andrew Lloyd Webber. None of which is helpful to you, but I could not resist posting
    I do like that, but have added it my list of ones to check as horse already has it as a name - but with a prefix, so I'm not sure if it's up for use on its own or protected.

    I like Perfectly Dun a lot - especially because it is positive (I'm not so sure about the neutral or negative ones like Now You've Dun It etc).

    This is the top of my list! I started with Dun Dun Dun, then found a USA horse named Dun Dedun Dundun, which I thought was even funnier. I need to sleep on it a couple more days and see whether others are as amused by it as I am .

    Dean Spanley? but, erm, I can't figure out the first one?

    Stardust is the TV remake of one of Plunkett -- Baron of Dunsany's, pieces. I'm a lit prof and cultural anthropologist Literary references are practically an illness with me

    Anything but "Git 'R Dun". Seriously, it's soooo worn out. Not sure if it'd be relevant in En Zed anyway.

    In theory, yes, but the difference between theory and reality is that, in theory, there is no difference between theory and reality but, in reality, there is a difference.

    I've never been interested in owning a dun before, but now I really want one

    My favorite so far is Dundedundun. If I was naming an eventer, Dun Forest, Dun! might be the winner
