Asti is Aston Perdita on her passport. Asti for short as her mum is called Martini. I named her.
Byter was already nicknamed that but as "Biter" because she was quite nibbly when she was a foal. Gail is superstitious and wouldn't change it so we just changed the spelling. She's officially Bittersweet Suprise.
Ivy is Ivy House Starlight Express but we though Ivy was a pretty name. Ivy house is the place her Daddy lives, and her prothers have Ivy house prefixes (But not the Welsh Ivy House Prefix).
For popular names:-
several Jacks and Jacko's
Oh and know an Aragorn and Frodo - guess LOTR is a bit popular!
We had two olivers at the same time - chestnut oliver and black oliver because we didn;t like to change their names!. Other names Glenn, Freddie, Bob, Hugo, Dolph, Roddy, Teddy, Phil, Truffle, Ollie, Tommy, Sonny, Harry. Nothing very unusual. We have a Smog on the yard (never met one of those before)!

With a couple of exceptions, all mine seem to finish up with human names:

Cassie (Paith Cascade)
Woody (General Greenwood)
Tom (Just the Ticket)
Boris (Little Boris - 16.3hh 3-seater - breeder with a sense of humour!
we used to have a racehorse called Frank The Swank, some of you may know him as he went on to do 4* with Matt Ryan. also used to ride a colt called Curve - ended up being called Purve. there are loads of racehorses with daft names. most common are harry and bob, weve had quite a few of those over the years.
