I was given my childhood  Starshine by someone who didn’t want her anymore so I never knew her true name until I started looking at ponies online. I called her either Sunburst or Starburst but I’m pretty sure it was Starburst. :)

Before I learned the names of my ponies, I just referred to them as "the rainbow pony" or "the flower pony." I was never the kind to come up with my own names, I just looked at their symbols.

I forgot Skyskimmer's name so when g4 came out I thought she was g2 Fluttershy.

My mom managed to track down the names of most of my secondhand ponies but baby Rattles, so she was a boy named Baby Jack, pronounced with the name emphasis as jumping jack, since it looked like his rabbit symbol was doing a jumping jack.

Morning Glory was Honeysuckle to me for like 20 years. My mom told me her name was Honeysuckle and thus, when I figured out her real name I was so, SO confused.

Doodles was "Baby ABC"

Baby Sunnybunch was "Journey" and will always be Journey to me. My mom loves to remind me about this lol.


Milkyway, Baby Sunnybunch, baby Bouncy, Baby Fifi, Baby Nightcap, and glittery Baby Northstar were all guys.

Bubblefish was the absolute "Tomboy" of the girl ponies because she's very tall and husky.

And of course, Sugarsweet was the Grandmother because in all honestly she still looks like a grandmother to me

What do you mean, 'before you knew their real names :) :) 

It's worse now than when I was a kid - then we liked to know their real names, though some of them had 'stable names'. Now I can't think past the nicknames/stable-names

The only two I can remember were Light Bulb for Sunbeam because everyone needs a bright idea. :P Chopper for Speedy because she ran a chop shop; a garage that dismantles cars and sells the parts. Often for street racing.

My girlfriend's childhood ponies were all second-hand, so she often had to devise her own names for them. And a lot of those names have stuck!

Twirler - Musical Note
Baby Tippytoes - Clover
Little Flitter - Wind Whistler
Wind Whistler - Chris (short for Christine)
Cherry Treats - Cherrypie
Tappy - Booties
Baby Bridesmaid - Magic Horseshoe (she thought the top hat on her symbol meant she was a magician pony)
Baby Fun n Games - Red Dice
Baby Pony - Pill ("because she is small and white")
There are two Sweetstuffs, one called Sweetstuff after the cartoon and the other rather wonderfully named Twinkles Jelly.
And this is before we even get into the fakie members of the childhood herd, who included Mouldy and Baldy!

SS Shady - Shades (male, and the last one that had a gender swap)
SS Bouncy - Beachy
TE Masquerade - Masquerade

TE Gingerbread - Gingerbread
TE Fizzy - Soda Float
TE Quackers - Quackers
TaF Sugarberry - Berry Sweet

I don't remember anything specific to the G2 Ponies which were the first ones I had, but I remember getting a second hand baby Sweetstuff when I was about 10 and guessing her name was "Dolly" (I knew enough that their names were connected to their marks and had seen some of the pilot specials & the movie, so I never would have guessed her name)
