Dreamer: Windcall's Page 6=Personality-Related Horse Names
"It's my birthday present to me! I'm SO happy!" (Kuzco, The Emperor's New Groove)
I know the subject title looks REALLY boring, but I find it extremely important! Personality-related horse names are, in my opinion, quite essential for horses with evident traits. For example, Olympic Zest could be a fine name for a horse with great talent for his occupation (say, if there were Equine Olympics?) and a surprisingly sassy qaulity. Another good one, though more common, is Flicka: high-spirited, pretty girl. Gunpowder, out of "The Legend of Sleepy Hollow," is an excellent name for a fiery steed large enough to frighten and wild enough to buck the rider into orbit. Skywalker (sorry, Star Wars!) would be a great name for a blue roan or grey horse with great jumping power or high speed and a height to match his confidence. A book I decided to write, "Sketching Skye," is about--you know what? I'll just type out the description below.
"An ancient legend, the Canadian "ghost horses," attracts a teenage city girl named Skye who is forced to move to barren Nunavut, in northern Canada, to live with her unmarried, wolf-crazy aunt. As Skye explores the vast surrounding tundra and beautiful taiga, the "ghost horses" are just as enchanting as the plentiful wolves and caribou."
Sound interesting? I hope I get to start that book by the time I'm twenty-five years old! So many awesome ideas--so little time to accomplish them. Back to my subject, Skye would also be a great name for a horse similar to the Skywalker horse. Aurora, for another idea, is a name I plan to use in the book for the filly who forms an unbreakable bond with Skye. Ironically, Aurora's sire will be named Borealis, and her dam will be named Australis. (For any people as sensitive to details as me, Borealis stands for "northern," and Australis stands for "southern."
I would love to hear anybody else's ideas for personality-related horse names! PLEASE leave a comment if you have any idea AT ALL. I'm extremely eager to see the results!
