Not a favourite name, but a clever name: Cleavage, a mare by Hillandale out of Divided.

She was owned and named by Toby Balding's wife, who claimed she chose the name because she hoped one day to hear a commentator call Mrs Balding's Cleavage out in front.

My two most favourite named horses date back to the mid 50s

both were handicappers the 1st was named Tintinnabulam trained

by Towser Gosden the 2nd was named Gudmenaremist I cannot

recollect who trained that one.  Both these animals won me in

those days what I as a youngster considered packets, one famous

day in a novice hurdle at Sandown Gudmenaremist won at 25s the

next day I went out and bought a brand new Ford V8 Pilot.

Happy days now long gone.Best of luck to all.

Horse names that i really prefer were the old fashioned easy to remember and allocate to a horse and its form etc. Such as
Frenchmans Cove,Brantridge Farmer,Highland Wedding,Sea Pigeon,Easby Abbey etc.Grin
Really can't stand these arabic named horses that begin with M or T, really can't differentiate between them or remember which were top sprinters and which were mediocre horses, such as Muttawaful, Muthafaakir, and any other mutters!
Personally wouldn't care less if they took all their horses off to dubai and left them there!

Also reminds me of a time when scum was a thing found on the side of the bath and not on the streets. When only men drank pints and four letter words were confined to barracks! When people chose to work rather than sponge any which way they could. When children went to school at 9am and only exited at 4pm. You could put a point of view across without some inbreed, hiding behind keyboard anonimity, hurling abuse at you. When kids were generally a normal healthy size and not of Blue Whale proportions. When women looked like women and not some R101 in tights!  When you could watch TV without some slobbering imbeciles re-enacting a scene from a brothel.

   Anyway, rant over.  Cue the clowns!
