I need an elegant barn name for my German horse asap! What should I name him?

Asked by liveurlife1534 (1points) December 3rd, 2008

I just bought a very fancy imported German Hanoverian. He has a show name, but no barn name. I want something elegant and different for him. His show name will most likely by either Das Vertrauen (faith) or Dietrich(noblty). Any suggestions?

The Hanoverians were the line of Queen Victoria and Albert.

Calloway. Then call him Cal.

Felix. It means lucky or successful, which would come in handy if you are going to show him.

Fritz; It was used by American GI’s during WWII to refer to any German.

Hagen; he was the black knight in Götterdämmerung. We had a dachshund called Hagen.

draftygirl; Welcome, but please do not keep shouting. We can hear you just fine with lower case.

Charlie. Attach a horn to his head, and then you’re set.

How about Hossenfeffer?

Einstein Pickapepper. I know that Pickapepper may not be German but is sure is good on cream cheese.

A mare named Calloway? Really? Sorry, just seems like a more masculine name.

steve6's avatar

@alfreda, I was going to say Albert and now it seems even more fitting according to your interesting bit of trivia, so, how about Albert?

I really like ‘Albert’ – I second it!

BARNABAS probably meant “son of the prophet” (though it is claimed in Acts 4:36 to mean “son of encouragement”)
Alphonse means Eager, Noble
here are alot of german names and there meanings

Heinrich von der Schaft.

draftygirl: While Dutchman (Dutch) was a good suggestion I think ultimately it depends on what liveurlife1534 chooses to name his/her horse (regardless of what you told them to do). Don’t you agree?

geeeeezzzzzzz, cant even take a joke?

gailcalled's avatar

@draftygirl; Thank you for not shouting. Now, keep in mind that a joke is a joke only if someone finds it funny. You have been beating this one to death. (You know what they say about beating a dead horse.)

The “W” is the first letter of a very famous and “winning” bloodline of Hanoverians.
