    So far like Nuance and Nymeria. Easy to say and elegant even without entertainment connections. Barn name, Nyx.
    When opportunity knocks it's wearing overalls and looks like work.

      She isn't the personification of evil in Greek mythology but is often associated with less than ideal situations. Personally, I would be hesitant to use that name in naming a horse, I am not superstitious but that's bad JUJU..

      If you're bent on using Nyx, I would go for something like Nyx's Hemera, Hemera is one of her children, who is the goddess of light, or Aether (Aither) who represents day, also one of her children.
      I agree. I wouldn't touch the name "Nyx" with a ten-foot lunge whip!

        Night Light (for the star, etc.)
        First Night

        I have known a few bay horses named for actual bays. I like those names, e.g., Biscayne Bay, Colwyn Bay

        Nuala (/ˈnuːlə/; Irish: [ˈn̪ˠuəl̪ˠə]) is an Irish female given name, derived from Irish mythology - being either a diminutive form of Fionnuala ("fair shoulder"), the daughter of Lir, or an alternate name for Úna (perhaps meaning "lamb"), wife of Finvarra, king of the fairies.
        I would spell it Nula because an announcer might think it's pronounced "Nu-AH-la" as I did!

        Nova
        Nola

        Naomi -- previously suggested by someone else, is one of my favorite names

        Novena -- another no-no, IMO. Might offend some Catholics as a Novena is a series of prayers or services on 9 successive days.

          Something (with an N) Onyx?
          Noble Onyx, Noctis Onyx, Nova (novi, novo, nuevo) Onyx, Night (nuit, nacht, noc) Onyx
          I like that it contains Nyx in it already, but on the other hand, you'll still need to pick a name with N

          I'm going to jump on the Nymeria train too. Loved that name in the books, and still do! Plus, it seems like most people pronounce it the same way, so a plus for announcements

                If so, then we are talking Canadian Warmbloods, yes? And BTW, that "Pik Kasso mare" has a name, just like you are looking for one for yours.

                So what about --

                  Have heard Onyx as Honks and...wait for it....Oinks. Plus those horses picked up the unfotunate barn name of Ox with all but the owners. Probably been 3 or 4 named Onyx over the years, all geldings. Not good name for a pretty mare. If you are going to pick a gemstone, mares get Opal, Emerald, Sapphire etc...

                        Yes, that is her sire. I'm well aware that Patina had a name, she was also the sweetest mare and made the BEST babies.

                        I hate Nanaimo the place, but the dessert is one of my favs!

                          Go to the Jockey Club web site. They have a naming section (Since TB names cannot be reused for about 10 years, it is easier to look up a name than submit and get rejected.

                          I know that part doesn't pertain to you, but under each letter in the alphabet, there can be 100's of names. That's where I always start

                          Personally. I think that Nacona ids a very pretty name. --- I always start with The first letter I need (here you want an "N", followed by an "a"). That takes you all the way through the N names.

                              Whoops! hehe it's great to have experienced horse people on this board . . . sometimes for reasons entirely unrelated to horsemanship and riding!

                              How about Niagara for a Canadian place name? I do like that idea
                              Niagara Flies perhaps?

                              Though typing out Niagara makes me realized it could _also_ be prone to mispronunciation, seems well known enough to me, but I grew up near Canada.

                              I do like Nyx as a barn name though, I think it's cute and concise!

                                      I am so stoked with all the names! I'm going with Nyx as a barn name. Seeing as Nyx was not actually evil (having never done anything worse than Zeus) she just had immense power, which I think is great for a horse's name.

                                      I thought I had decided on Nyx Noctu, and then I threw a curve ball into my own plan by realizing I could use IN words and just use N- like N-sync So now more pondering will be done.

                                      Gotta say, I'm surprised no one suggested Naked or should I say Neigh-ked, and then at a show it would be announced as "John Doe riding Naked"
