Rochelle Frank wrote humorous bits for her college newspaper many years ago. Her funny observations have continued in print and online.
Are You Serious? Silly Might Be Better
Fanciful and attention-getting names seem to be mandatory for hair and nail salons. Though this article highlights some of the quirky and humorous names that are being used, we know that naming your business is a very serious choice.
First, you want people to notice you so you have a chance to convince them that you provide great service. Second, you want to convey something personal or unique about your business so your name will be memorable and they will remember to recommend you.
Salon names often seem to use crazy spelling, alliteration, questionable rhymes, puns, and pure silliness with reckless abandon.
Ken's Kuts & Kolors wins the prize for using the most K's in one business. Salons also offer Klassy Kuts, or Kuts 'n' Kurls.
Spelling violations also plague Hair Stranz and Hanz On Nail Designs, both of which are in Corona, CA—or might that be Korona, KA? Salon sign-makers have taken over the underused letters in our alphabet (like K and Z) and given them something to do.
Rhyming names are also popular for hair establishments. A few examples: Hair Affair, The Hair Lair, Great Lines Hair Designs, Nail Detail, Gail's Nails, and Dale's Nails.
For sheer puns, you can get Shear Design, Shear Heaven, Shear Magic, Shear Creations, Shear Delight, Shears to You, Shear Brilliance, Shear Elegance, Blood Sweat & Shears, as well as Shear Madness, Shear Beauty, Shear Talent or even Shearly Beloved. I, personally, would tend to stay out of the establishments advertising blood and sweat.
Prime Cuts, Upper Cuts, Just Cut Loose, The Final Cut, and A Cut Above also attract attention with that hint of an extreme makeover.
Hair Apparent, Hair and Beyond, Hair Raisers, Hair to Please You, and Hair to Stay are apparently here to stay.
The Best Little Hairhouse in (whatever state) might make you do a double-take. There's even a Hairhouse Warehouse for beauty supplies.
Hair Today, Bangs for the Memories, Mane Event, All Tressed Up, Hair to Please, The Bobshed, Scissorhands, Headmistresses, Cut and Caboodle all compete for silliness with Headquarters, Heads Up, Just Teasin', The Pomp Room, Clippety-Do-Dah, Comb as You Are and All Tressed Up.

Hair salons want to raise the tone of the discourse, to go upscale, to reach new heights -- so a lot of salons seem to think that having a French name is classy, or even Klassy.
Among them are La Coiffure Salon, Le Nail Salon, Hair Nouveau, La Petite Salon, Le Mys Nails, Tre'ss Bien, and Hair Sebon.
The Harlow Jantee salon in Carmichael, California (now closed) had a "Manicureste.” If law firms wanted to add French class, they might name themselves Le Trois Avocats, or Le Ballet du Justice.
In one city you can choose between Hair Images, Hair Reflections, Hair Accents, Hair Attitudes, The Hair Shack, or Foxxy's, perhaps depending upon the social level you aspire to.
Some salons seem inspired by popular entertainment. For Your Nails Only sounds like a clandestine adventure. There's also The Last Tangle, but it's in Chico, not Paris.
More than one shop far from Hollywood has called itself Hollywood Nails. Then there's the more Shakespearean As You Like It Hair Studio.

A few hint at vanity on a higher plane like Angel Nails or Heaven On Earth. A New Creation Hair & Nails hints at rebirth, while Alpha & Omega Hairstyling Salon covers the subject completely.
You can get Heavenly Nails & Hair in a town that also has a shop for extreme nail emergencies, 911 Nails. Then there's Hair We Are. Where? In Cotati, California, and no doubt elsewhere.
First Lady Nails seems like they have limited their clientele as much as Holiday Nails has limited its seasons. Hair Cut 2000 may have changed their name by now, or else their calendar is a little slow.
French Salon Names Add Klass
Salon Names With Clues
Occasionally salon names reveal some detail from the real world. Acapella Salon, for example, probably does its styling without instrumental musical accompaniment. The Hands Up Nail Boutique may have had its name inspired by a recent robbery.
The Hairsmith salon sounds like they use hammers and anvils, which seems an unpleasant way to have your hair styled.
There is a College Green Hair Cutters. Do they cut only green hair? Do they also clip lawns?
Mille's Hair Mine opened in California's gold country after the gold rush ended and people began mining hair instead of precious metal.
Hair, Etc. seems to be a popular name, though it may leave too much to the imagination.
For those who like something a little more historical or traditional, there's Hairloom, or a number of Hairitage salons.
Hairborn, Hairport, American Hair Lines, and American Hair Force all sound aeronautic. Perhaps they are located at airline terminals.
Speaking of terminals, there's To Dye For, Dye Hard, Hair to Eternity and Permanent Solutions. My favorite along those lines is Curl Up and Dye. One such named establishment is located near a retirement community—and yes, community residents use the services.
Choose your salon name carefully. It will be with you for a long time and may determine if your business lives or dyes.
Plastic Figurines Utterly Serious About Salon Names
Questions & Answers
Question: What is the best name for a hair salon or parlor for both men and women?
Answer: The best name will always come from you. It might include your name, your location, your theme or something else that makes it special. For both men and women you might do something like "(Use Your name) Penny's for His and Her's", "Everyone's Hair", or just "His and Her Haircuts".
Question: What is the best name for an all-inclusive salon (nails,hair,brows,wax,barber)?
Answer: A very general, generic name might be something like "Head to Toe....", but the "best" name might be something that especially relates to you, your location, or something else that makes it personal and unique. You are building a brand, something that sets you apart from others who might be providing similar services. Once you select (or create) a name you will be identified with it for a long time so give it some more thought about what makes your shop special.
Rochelle Frank (author) from California Gold Country on November 23, 2017:
It's up to you, Jasmine. It should relate to YOU in some way-- your name, your speciality, your location, something else that is personally meaningful, or to what you customers want. Look through the suggestions and see if some of them inspire you. Good luck!
RTalloni on November 25, 2016:
Name competition among hair salons really is fun stuff. Re the mobile shop, I like Curb Appeal Styles. Then, for a practical name consider Your Place Hair or Meet Me Hair, but for a little more flair try, Hair We Go or Curbside Cuts.
Rochelle Frank (author) from California Gold Country on November 25, 2016:
I think the best ones are personal. They relate you, your location, your specialty. I can't really suggest what might be best for you, but read through the suggestions and see what rings your bell.
I think the name is important-- it makes people remember you. If you are mobile you might consider "------ on wheels" or maybe Hair to Go, "I'm Hair for You" ===== these are just off the top of my head ( as is my hair)..... get a couple of friends to help you brainstorm.
email@example.com on November 25, 2016:
i am going to open a mobile beauty salon please suggest me any good name
Rochelle Frank (author) from California Gold Country on October 14, 2013:
Thanks, FlourishAnyway. Sometimes I think life would be much simpler without hair, but apparently it plays a big part of our economy.
FlourishAnyway from USA on October 14, 2013:
Oh these were too funny. I really love the one Curl Up and Dye. That is just terrible but also funny. Locally I go to one called A Cut Above, but I think I've gone to nearly ever "Shear" one on your list. Great topic for a hub.
Rochelle Frank (author) from California Gold Country on April 05, 2012:
stifler-- look through the ideas in the article and comments, then try doing some free association with some of the words. The best ideas for your salon come directly from you. Good luck.
Rochelle Frank (author) from California Gold Country on March 01, 2012:
Sounds like another winner.
Rochelle Frank (author) from California Gold Country on February 28, 2012:
Sounds very much to the point. No nonsense.
Roxie on February 28, 2012:
To the woman who was opening a salon with her sister- we have a salon in town called two women doing hair. Could be two sisters doing hair.
Rochelle Frank (author) from California Gold Country on November 28, 2011:
Nicola and Lori-- it is hard to find a name that is unique and reflects your own personality. Sometimes it takes awhile, but I think you will know when just the right idea hits you. Good luck in your new businesses.
Lori on November 28, 2011:
Have had a barber shop for seven years that's under the old owners name. Shop was established in 1965. Time for a face lift and name change. So many other shops in the area. Have an older client base. Need to attract a younger base. Husband came up with a clever name with my initial but not sure if it will offend anyone. "L" of a Cut Barber Shop. Want something catchy and clever. Also a name to be proud of. Any feed back would be appreciated.
Rochelle Frank (author) from California Gold Country on November 15, 2011:
Maybe, "We Sisters" or "Sisters with Scissors"--- It will eventually have to come from the both of you. something you can agree on.
I actually think that using the idea of sisters in your name would be great-- because people will get to know you and remember the sister part.
I'm in no way an expert a salon naming-- but you might find some ideas here. Good luck.
Jackie on November 15, 2011:
I am looking for a name for our new hairdressers, were sisters so would like to incorporate this into the name - any ideas ?
Rochelle Frank (author) from California Gold Country on August 26, 2011:
Maybe you could ask some of the people of the community. One I heard of was Haarmonie (a combination of Haar, German for ‘hair’ and the German word for harmony)
littlebarbe on August 26, 2011:
Hi I'm opening a salon and a German Community,i wanted used word's like,hair, love, peace, and german.Any ideas.
Rochelle Frank (author) from California Gold Country on August 14, 2011:
That's actually pretty good. It's hard enough to attention for your business when you are on street level. That sign might get people to stop and think about climbing a flight of stairs.
Thanks for commenting.
Buster Bucks from Sonoma County, California on August 14, 2011:
I spotted my favorite name while in San Francisco about 15 years ago.
The hair salon was located on the second floor, and they had a sign pointing upward with their business name on it:
"We're Up Hair"
Rochelle Frank (author) from California Gold Country on July 19, 2011:
Thanks for commenting, Amanda and Eaglekiwi. Naming your business is an important decision. You might get an ideas by looking up the names of similar businesses (in places not near you) and thinking about why one appeals to you and another one doesn't seem to work.
Your location might have an influence-- or you might want to create a sense of another location. For instance, if you are not near an ocean, you cold make your spa seem like a mini-vacation at on a tropical isle or a Mediterranean resort (like the Greek theme that was suggested).
The name might also affect your décor. Hope you come up with some good ideas.
Eaglekiwi from -Oceania on July 16, 2011:
How about Spa Gaia...she was a Greek Goddess (Mother Earth)
Rolls off the tongue nicely. Also, a Greek inspired theme would work.
Amanda F on July 15, 2011:
Ok so I am looking for a creative/ funny name for my Day Spa and am at a complete loss, everyone I pick has already been used. If you have any ideas that would be great! I dont do hair which is why none of the above really work for me :(
Rochelle Frank (author) from California Gold Country on May 29, 2011:
I wonder if 'Scissorhands' draws people in. I might not want to try that, but I guess the point is 'mainly' to attract attention.
Thor on May 28, 2011:
We have 2-3 depending on how you look at it of these names where I live. Scissorhands Salon, Mane Event/Main Event. I think the last 2 are owned by the same people just spelled differently.
Rochelle Frank (author) from California Gold Country on March 20, 2011:
Naming your business is a very personal thing and I think it can make a difference. Long names can be hard to remember-- and sometimes hard to put on a sign.
Kristy H:) on March 16, 2011:
I have a salon in north georgia which is right outside of Chattanooga,Tn and there are some great names I have came across. My salon name is Generations Hair Studio b/c my mom and I own the salon. We have salon names like...DNA Hair Structure,Bella Mi Salon,Curl up & Dye.lol,The Lemon Drop,The Flirt, The famous..HairBenders,I do like HairFLingers,I like the Hair Shack as well. I hope this helps...but really watch long salon names!
Rochelle Frank (author) from California Gold Country on February 25, 2011:
Now, that would be a strange name for a salon-- and might be misunderstood.
Rochelle Frank (author) from California Gold Country on February 08, 2011:
I assume you are not serving actual cocktails-- so I think the last two might be misleading. Maybe something with "mixers", "happy hour", "lounge"? Hope you find what that works for you.
get nailed on February 06, 2011:
I hope to be opening a nail and waxing salon in the next few months and am having a hard time coming up with a name. It will be a bar themed salon. Some ideas are:
All Lacquered Up
Nails on the Rocks
Martinis and Manicures
Cocktails for Nails
I don't want to name it The Nail Bar as there are too many of those already. I was hoping to come up with something that tied the cocktail theme into the name. I would love to hear more suggestions!!! Thank you.
Rochelle Frank (author) from California Gold Country on October 23, 2010:
How about Kricket Klipz? Thanks for the comment. I didn't realize there were specialty shops for kids.
Kricket on October 23, 2010:
What about the kids salons? Noticed that they too have just as many corner names? Here we have Kidz LIdz, Candy Hair, Snippetty, Locks of Fun, Lollilocks, Cool Cuts for Kids, Hollywood Kids (and it's in Australia!) and more I am sure I haven't discovered yet. Some of these are trendy and should do well, but some kids salon names are just plain sad. Can we come up with some strong trendy kids salon names to show the world here??? May prevent more of these 'fluffy' named salons from opening!
Rochelle Frank (author) from California Gold Country on July 12, 2010:
I think the most important thing is that you are happy and comfortable with it. Good luck in your new business.
nteseng on July 12, 2010:
I love your article. it is beautiful....I am opening a hair & beauty salon in a month and not sure what to name it. I loved celestial hair salon or B'yond Celestial hair salon...any ideas?
Rochelle Frank (author) from California Gold Country on June 21, 2010:
I think that's adorable.-- maybe just not the right place. It would probably do fine in Florida or California.
Terre on June 21, 2010:
I'm a hairstylist who was out of the cosmo loop for quite awhile and now going back into the profession again. Almost 25 years ago I owned my own salon (twice) in Kansas. I moved there from Florida...(big mistake!!) anyway, I called my salons the "Comb-a-cabana" club and had it decked out like the Copacabana in Bogart's movie. I had tropical plants everywhere, an old piano in the corner, wore tropical attire and served non-alcoholic coctails. It turned out horrible! Those people didn't get it at all and I kept getting calls from old farmers wanting to know if my salon was a new beer joint! The old women in town - well, you can probably guess. They were so stuck in the past!! But I always loved calling my salons the "Comb-a-cabana"!!! If I open up another salon I'm sticking with it!!!!
Rochelle Frank (author) from California Gold Country on March 18, 2010:
That one actually sounds like a great salon name. Creative and sensible... And something everyone wants. Good luck!
Wezzie k on March 18, 2010:
Intend to open my own with First Impression as a name. Is that one cool.
Rochelle Frank (author) from California Gold Country on February 22, 2010:
It is an early one -- and has (BY FAR) the most total views of any of my hubs. In fact out of my 109 hubs-- this one has about 1/3 of my total hub views.
With several thousands of visits, I can only surmise that I accidentally tossed in some good SEO keywords. My theory is that all hair stylists long to own their own salon. When they have downtime, they get on the computer and search for names.
Thanks for your comment.
Alfreta Sailor from Southern California on February 21, 2010:
This is one of the cutest hubs I've seen. I'm going to bookmark it to use for conversation in some of my "old girl pajama parties." I'm looking forward to reading more of your hubs soon.
Susan Reid from Where Left is Right, CA on April 06, 2009:
Getting one's hair coiffed should not be a hair-raising experience. I personally would worry about the capabilities of the stylists (not to mention the mental acuity of the salon owner) in many of these establishments. Call me a snob, but if it's got alliteration using "k's" I'm keeping my kurls out of their klutches for sure!
A similar phenom seems to be occurring with spas these days. Spas are proliferating in my town (which means they must be proliferating elsewhere) like Starbucks in the 1990s. Seems there's on on every korner. Oops -- spas don't go for that.
Fun hub, Rochelle.
For the record, I used to get my hair done at Laura duPriest (the salon owner's name), then Encore Hair Designs, then Paula V's (again, owner's name) until Paula moved over to Bloom Salon...
My nail salon has changed names so long I no longer change the entry in my cell phone:-). MM

Sheila from The Other Bangor on February 04, 2009:
I got nothing. Oh, wait -- One of my favorite episodes of Bugs Bunny opened with him singing "I dream of Jeanie, she's a light brown hare. . ."

Thanks, JamaGenee !
I would be afraid of "Running with Scissors"-- we were always told not to. My haircutter uses a razor, but doesn't run.
I agree about the views-- but seems very weird that it has almost 3000-- and the next highest has 600-- then 500-- and steep decline from there. As you say, who looks at numbers?
Joanna McKenna from Central Oklahoma on January 27, 2009:
Just had to throw these in:
Hair Maintenance (except in their TV ad, the H is obliterated with some sort of graphic, so all you see is "Air Maintenance". Meaning when the stylists that come on next talk about the services offered, you aren't sure if. it's a hair salon or a heating/AC company)
Mane Thing Salon & Spa
Not So Plain Jane's
Running With Scissors (?????????)
Tips 2 Toes
And no pun intended, one that cuts right to the chase: You're SO Vain (caps theirs, not mine)
As for why people keep finding this hub - who cares? A page view is a page view, whether you consider it one of your best or not. ;)
Lori on January 27, 2009:
More names :
Hair We Are
Hair I am
Hair 4 U
We Tease 2 Please
Fringes and more
Trimming your Tangles
Cosmo Day Spa
Bella Vita Day Spa
Hubba Hubba Hair Designs
These Salon names above are used around my area.
Rochelle Frank (author) from California Gold Country on January 25, 2009:
This one has been posted for quite awhile-- and though I don't think it is my best , it has been ( far and away ) the most viewed each day -- must be linked somewhere.
It's still a mystery to me why it continues to get 30 to 50 views a day, while others are lucky to get one.
Christoph Reilly from St. Louis on January 25, 2009:
Very funny! I don't think I have any funny name salons in my town. I feel left out. I tried to come up with some, but it seems as though they are all actually taken. How about wig shops? "Flip your Wig," or "You Grow Em, We Sew Em!" Nah.
Anyway, great hub. Sorry I missed it first time around. I've got lots of catching up to do!
Lori on January 18, 2009:
I have quite a few things for sale before my big move. One thing that I have for sale is a Eugene LTD Perming Machine and matching Dryer from the 1900's, would anyone know what this would be valued at or anyone have any idea's on what I should sell it for??? This isn't something I can keep as for I will not have the room for it. (I hope no one will buy it thinking there going to use the thing)! Ha Ha Ha I know things make come backs, but God I hope our jobs get easier not harder.
newsworthy on January 11, 2009:
as somene said earlier this is a fun hub. just what i needed - to let my hair down! im going see if i can get some bed hair. my hair looks like fun hub hair but it sure is work!
Rochelle Frank (author) from California Gold Country on January 11, 2009:
ReuVera-- Mere Image is kind of cool, because it IS all about the image.
Londongirl-- "Hair Today" really does make you wonder if they will be around tomorrow.
LondonGirl from London on January 11, 2009:
Great hub! "A cut above" is depressingly common here, and I've come across a hairdresser's called "Hair today..."
ReuVera from USA on January 11, 2009:
Haha, nice! My sister-in-law used to have a beauty shop called "Hair and Company". Also there's in town "Cool Noggings", "Mere Image".
Rochelle Frank (author) from California Gold Country on January 04, 2009:
Good luck in your business!
Lori on January 04, 2009:
Okay, I came up with a name that is shorter and catchy as well. I orignally wanted something to link up with Beach Theme like " Waves in the hair and waves at the beach" However... I wanted something with the word corner in it too because I live on a corner. So sometimes simple is best I've decided on
Cutting Corners and placing this with a pair of sissors opened up to make it look like 4 corners!
I can still have the Salon in a coastal theme. People will see it soon enough. However when I make my price list for the people I will make the words come alive.
Thanks for the help
Lori on December 28, 2008:
Thanks for replying!
I do wish to add I wish to have incorporated into the name somewhere, "Corner"
Like Corner Shades & Waves However I think it sounds like I'm selling sunglasses on a corner in the shade. Ha Ha Ha. This is why I am asking for Help.
Corner Cuts, Shades & Waves ???? Too long
Rochelle Frank (author) from California Gold Country on December 28, 2008:
Interesting concept. Don't know if I can help... Ocean waves.... Shore to please Styles ...
SurfStyles...? I'm sure yu will find something perfect. Anyone else have suggestions?
Lori on December 28, 2008:
Looking for a name for a shop I will be opening in my house. We live on a corner, and I will be having a Coastal theme in the shop, however I do not live on the coast. I was trying to use words that relate to the coast and hair for an excample Waves of the hair and waves of the ocean. HELP!
Rebecca Graf from Wisconsin on November 01, 2008:
There are some unique names out there. I've always thought of how funny they were and who could come up with these.
Rochelle Frank (author) from California Gold Country on October 20, 2008:
Thanks-- this is my highest hub in visits-- but I really don't know why, probably some other sites picked it up. It was fun, but not my best in my own opinion.
Thanks for commenting-- I appreciate every visit. And I love what I have read of yours.
KRC from Central Texas on October 20, 2008:
Great Hub! We have some of those too, but we also have "Just Cuttin'", "Cuttin' Up", "The Cutting Edge", "The Wild Hair", "The Cuttery", "Hair Masters", and "Hair We Are".
Rochelle Frank (author) from California Gold Country on October 09, 2008:
Thanks Benson and Gwendymom--
This hub is not one of my personal favorites, but it has by far and away the most views of any I have written -- especially by sources outside of HubPages-- don't really know why. Must be high on some search.
gwendymom from Oklahoma on October 09, 2008:
Great Hub, again! I loved the Bushwackers one. I wonder how many customers they actually have. I don't think I could walk in there lokking for a haircut, I might if I needed a bikini waxing.
Benson Yeung from Hong Kong on September 26, 2008:
reading is fun because of hubs like these.
Rochelle Frank (author) from California Gold Country on September 15, 2008:
Maybe that's true in some places, Research Analyst--(I see squirrels on every corner-- but I'm not in a city). Might be because it is often a woman who opens this kind of business-- and for starting a small business it is one that doesn't need a lot of start-up capital, compared to others.
spryte from Arizona, USA on September 09, 2008:
LOL! Great hub and yes it does work for the HubMob!
My sister is a hairdresser (on the side now) and she used to work for a place whose name made me cringe. It was called "Hair on the Hill."
Rochelle Frank (author) from California Gold Country on September 02, 2008:
Blondes have more fun?
I used to be a blonde,...Naturally as a kid, and less naturally as a teen. Then I decided to let nature take its course and became a brownette. Now that a little grey is seeping in. i'm considering blonde again-- probably will do what seems easiest.
desert blondie from Palm trees, swimming pools, lots of sand, lots of sunscreen on September 02, 2008:
Glad I found this one...never thought to compare names of hair salons with banks or law firms...but have never personally chosen to have my hair cared for at an establishment with a 'cute' name. Connection? Who knows...maybe I'm just a cautious sort when it comes to my hair.
Rochelle Frank (author) from California Gold Country on August 12, 2008:
Excellent! Much better than a lot of them.
Constant Walker from Springfield, Oregon on August 12, 2008:
"Hair Today..." would probably be a bad name, eh?
Rochelle Frank (author) from California Gold Country on August 09, 2008:
Sounds lke a bargain, no matter what.
funnebone from Philadelphia Pa on August 09, 2008:
can you imagine my dissapointment when I made a hazordous you turn to pull into " bangs for a bucK"!
byee on August 06, 2008:
Awesome hub. I love seeing funny signs and business names!!
2patricias from Sussex by the Sea on August 03, 2008:
There's a hairdressers about 10 miles from us (south coast of England) called 'Hair Flicks'. The name should raise a smile from Brits of a certain age, but younger ones will be mystified!
IN another nearby town there is 'Barber Blacksheep's' (say it aloud).
Lexica from Germany on July 22, 2008:
Hi Rochelle, I've long suspected that half the world's creative potential goes into naming hair salons and you've just confirmed the fact for me! Please note that this is an international phenonemon - the names in Europe are equally "hair-raising."
Rochelle Frank (author) from California Gold Country on July 22, 2008:
Now that would work---so it seems. I got to thinking about utility companies, dental clinics, car repair shops, home improvement stores and funeral homes.-- everybody should lighten up, don't you think?
Zsuzsy Bee from Ontario/Canada on July 22, 2008:
Rochelle! what a fun hub... We have "Head Hunters", "Noggins", the next town over also has a "Best little hairhouse". I just love these play on word names for businesses... I named my tailor-shops 'Sew its seams'...
I loved the hub regards Zsuzsy
Rochelle Frank (author) from California Gold Country on July 21, 2008:
Do it, Donna! And expalin it if you can-- I know that a lot of race hore nanes come from combining the dam and sire (mommy and daddy-- not sure if that is the correct terminology).
Thanks for commenting.
Donna Campbell Smith from Central North Carolina on July 21, 2008:
LOL, we have some of those, too.Hair Trends Studio, Heads Up Hair DEsign, Kidz Kuts and Kutz & Such, Nu Locks, Nu Look Beauty Salon, Suntanz Tanning, Hair, Nails & Tattoo, Skilz Unlimited, Shear Brilliance, Shear Magic, To Dye For Hair and Nail Spa are a few in the yellow pages.
That's nothing. I should write a hub on naming horses: Sweetheart on Parade, Thunder's Spotted Bull, Spatter Butt, Hih Lite's Hallelujah Cody, Dash for Cash, etc.
