Pony naming help!

We’ve somehow managed to get not one but two (!!) pandemic ponies, one was intentional the other rather less but he was needed (we had a buddyless horse).

One definitely needs a name, the other potentially needs a name.

Pony 1 - Is a grey (white) pony, he’s part bred spotted pony so has mottled (pink and black) skin around his eyes and nose. He’s a real ‘cheeky chappy’ type, he LOVES people. I’m sure when he’s all grown up he’ll be one lucky kid’s absolute best friend.
I’m looking for a name inbetween cute & sophisticated. He has a bit about him so things like ‘[name_u]Teddy[/name_u]’ aren’t quite right but he’s very much a pony so something too grown up doesn’t quite work either.

Pony 2 - Is also grey (will be white but is currently actually grey/silver with black mane & tail) [name_f]Connemara[/name_f] pony (Irish Breed). She’s a very sweet girl, fairly shy but that’s more because she’s not very used to human’s I don’t think she’ll stay shy for very long.
I’m looking for something a bit different for her, things like [name_m]Smokey[/name_m] or Smudge just aren’t quite her vibe. I’m not totally adverse to ‘old lady’ names but they have to be right. Ahh it’s hard to describe her!
Oh yes, her current name is [name_f]Hebe[/name_f], which I don’t hate and quite like but Mum HATES the flower apparently so we’re not sure.

Wow! Two! Here’s some ideas:
[name_u]Matty[/name_u] (m)
[name_u]Riley[/name_u] (m) or (f)
Good luck!

Pony 1:
[name_m]Clarence[/name_m] “[name_u]Clare[/name_u]”
[name_u]Laurence[/name_u] “[name_u]Laurie[/name_u]”
[name_m]Archibald[/name_m] “[name_m]Archie[/name_m]”
[name_m]Leopold[/name_m] “[name_m]Leo[/name_m]”
[name_m]Leonard[/name_m] “[name_m]Leon[/name_m]”
[name_m]Philip[/name_m] “[name_u]Pip[/name_u]”

Both of these ponies sound absolutely precious.

Terry (/Terrence) and [name_u]Indy[/name_u] (/Indiana) came in mind for pony 1.

For pony 2, I second the [name_f]Clover[/name_f] suggestion, and maybe other flower names like [name_f]Aster[/name_f], [name_f]Flora[/name_f], [name_f]Poppy[/name_f], [name_f]Bluebell[/name_f], or [name_f]Daisy[/name_f] would be cute.

Haha right! Not sure how that happened… Some of these I considered already, I said she’s make a cute [name_f]Maggie[/name_f] but my grandma is [name_f]Margaret[/name_f] - that’s 50/50 as to how that would go down…

I saved [name_f]Emmie[/name_f] for my future corgi who I want to name after [name_f]Emmeline[/name_f] Pankhurst, one day I will have a dog!!

I do love some of these though thanks!

Wow. For pony 1, I thought of [name_u]Bailey[/name_u] and [name_u]Louie[/name_u]. For pony 2 I thought of [name_f]Clover[/name_f] and [name_m]Cole[/name_m] (I actually like [name_m]Cole[/name_m] for a girl).
