[FT] Favourite horse names?

Rune and Rynn for twins
Jijivisha (it's a Hindi word roughly translating to the love of life)
Toska (Russian, a broad word meaning sadness, anything from despair to boredom)
I have 17 horses with Saami numbers for names. The Saami are an indigenous tribe in Scandinavia and my family believes that our ancestors were Saami, so these 17 horses are named in the order they were born: first, second, third, etc.
Themes that I like are cities, such as Memphis, Seattle, and Phoenix, (or even foreign cities like Rome, Beijing, and London) states, like Kentucky, Wyoming, and Minnesota, and anything in the NATO alphabet.
So sometimes I name my horses something themed like this, other times I just name them anything pretty that pops into my head. I DON'T like naming them something cliche like Misty or Sugar - not that there's anything wrong with these names, I just like giving my horses fresh, unique names.
OH I almost forgot Ya'aburnee - an Arabic word translating to 'you bury me" meaning they want to die first because they can't bear to live without the other person. Obviously I like foreign words!

My favorite names as of right now are
Crispin (I found it somewhere online and I just love it )
Everglow -such a sweet name for a sweet filly.
Promise -such a beautiful name.
Caspian -lovely name yet unusual, I like it.
Peter/ Peter Pan
Weasel -weird and quirky but cute.
Angel -such an angelic name for an angelic horse.
I tend to stray towards two syllable names like Sassy and Bella (my two girls). Full names are Sassy Sundae and Anabella.
Names I'm keeping in my back pocket for future horses are Byron, Loki, Harley, and Lyric.
Someday I'd love to get a horse and register them under the name "Low Key Mischief." Loki for short, just to please my inner Marvel nerd.
Since I am a Star Wars fan, I tend to name many of my horses on here after characters I like.
I also like using the word Jedi in my names as well.
Jedi's Broken Promise
Path of the Jedi
Oath of the Jedi

Promise (my curly filly) I just think it is a sweet and fitting name.
Storm (one of my Dad’s horses when growing up was called that so I decided to honor my horse that name.)
Legacy - cute for a show jumping horse.
Sky’s the limit
l almost forgot about the names most important for me:
-Mihri- translated from Turkish it means moon
- Mah - also Turkish means sun
- Naria - in my opinion it resembles an Indian name
- Silente - means silent in Spanish
and Saris an boy name - l think its an interesting name
and l think thats it... or maybe not.
generally names symbolize the characteristic of an person and animal.
So you have to pick carefully
