Re: [RC] naming baby - Suzi Maiorisi

My sister and I drove from South Texas to Oklahoma last year to buy my Morgan.  At the time, her name was Harley.  The day we left on our adventure was the same day that the Harley Davidson Rally chose to evacuate Austin -somewhere in the thousands of bikers - so we drove for hours weeding thru rude motorcyclists, getting held below the speed limit for miles and miles as they would block all lanes and drive 55 or 60 instead of the posted 65 or 70.  All the while we're thinking "And we're driving for 10 hours to go buy something named Harley?? NOT!  Won't be named Harley for long!!". 
 
When we finally got her home she settled in, my husband and I settled into our new routine and he (Yankee that he is and will never lose that accent!) started talking about her and it kept coming out more like Holly...so now Holly and I are partners for life!  Yep, the name will come - even if the horse is an adult!
Suzi and renamed and happier Holly

I agree with the importance of names and naming. this year I will have 4 to name.  1 Arab, one TB, and 2 Connemaras. The right name will come.. and trust it too. I accidently named an Arab filly seconds after birth "widget" because she was a wiggle worm. Her papers say "Jewel's Image" but her name is Widget. I sold her and her new owner calls her Widget too.
Also, the wrong name seems to affect the horse too: I bought a mare named Sweet Tater Fly. She hated being called "sweetie" One day "Veronica" came out of my mouth..... she has been much happier since the name change. she seems to like being called "Ronnie"
