My toddler wants to name his new mini Shetland mare 'Kevin' HELP

Collecting our new pony tomorrow. A tiny miniature coloured mare, who currently has no name. She is passported as 'Ponette deux' because she was the second pony to be passported that day, apparently they were all passported that way but with 'trois, quarter, cinq' etc...

So, I asked my dear son what he would like to call her.

Son's response: KEVIIIIN!

I did try to explain that, she was a girl, but I got a death stare in return, and I'm drawing a bit of a blank with names.

I was hoping I might get some ideas here that I can suggest to him. The little mare is the sassiest little thing I've ever met, so something different to match her larger than life attitude and that's fun and quirky enough too.

OR... do we just go ahead and name her Kevin?

I think Kevin is brilliant. Definitely go with Kevin.

I would just call her Kevin!

Kevina is an outstanding name for a horse. .
Is he going to ride her?
I am sure she will be outstanding in her field at whatever they achieve together. . .

I'm with your DS on this one to be honest.

Kevin is a brilliant name.

I met a tiny little pug called Steve the other day. Bloody brilliant name for a dog. Is there a feminine form of KEVIN, I reckon she could own it!

Failing that I actually really Deux as a namesmile

Kevin the Shetland. I LOVE it.

Do it, do it, do it!

Kevin is a perfect name for a Shetland pony. We need a picture now.

Kevin is a great name. When I was a toddler, I was given a kitten and I called it by a girl's name. He was fine about it.

AuntieStella Thu 27-Apr-17 19:50:47

Yes, I think you have to call her Kevin.

I met a canine one the other day (hairy, didn't notice sex)

Semaphorically Thu 27-Apr-17 19:50:55

Yes yes call her Kevin! That's brilliant grin

I love Kevin too! We used to have a springwr spaniel called Howard. Awesome dog!

BillywigSting Thu 27-Apr-17 19:52:47

Kevin is a bloody brilliant name! (Even if she is a girl)

It's got to be Kevin! And, yes, we need a picture.

Love a sassy Shetland!
We know a spaniel called Rodney which is brilliant amongst all the barneys, teddy and woody names. He is a boy though.

I looked it up and Kevin is a Norse name! It has a name Day and everything.
Kevinsdottir is the female version in Icelandic.

DD has a female Kevin in her class - Spelt Kevine- would that do?

AmethystRaven Thu 27-Apr-17 19:56:23

Your DS is fabulous. Kevin the female pony, love it! Does he like the minions or is it totally random?

She could be Kevvy for short. Sweet!
