Well, here are some medieval names...
Bliss- not very masculine tho...
Christian- i like this one.
Tristan- i like this one also.
Rowan- probably my favorite!
Benedict- ha ha ha, please no!
Mmm, i really like rowan, its unusual, but it still sounds regal and masculine, KING rowan. and i think it would be a great name for a black gelding... but hey, your horse. and congrats! you must be so excited!
Banquo...its from Macbeth and I kind of liked it...
which picture is it?
Only ones i can think of for now...
how about something like Prince or black magic
I like Prince Duke Cobalt And Magic/Black Magic
i got the names from a midevil website if you scrool down you will see Midevil horses
I cant think of anymore
no cobalt is a black stone.
Mouse (cuz he's so big...)
wow major brain fart i totally can't think of anything right not. here's a good website to try though. a lot of them are show names but there are good barn names in there too:
I have a soft spot for big horses too! Just not the draft ones as I find them too clonky.
You're names rermind me of black beauty! hehe!
Wow, big handsome boy!
Yes, Colbat is a shade of blue, but it would suit him.
I'm glad you're looking for some unusual names, rather than going with pathetic, boring ones like peaches and twister!
Here are some ideas, I think he would suit a royal-ish name:
William "Willy" Idk, It would be kinda' cute.
Oberon "Obey" (This means Royal Bear! Had to give you the meaning!!)
A lot of these names have really cool meanings, look them up! :)
blacky chance poco doc peppy walker sherman
Dark Knight... Just kidding. ; )
Hope this helps. : )

I hope I helped! Good luck with your new horse! ;)
if he's taller than 17 hands then i would name him/her something like giant, jumbo, or titanic.
if he's smaller than that, I'd go with something like
bona fide, classic, or orthodox.
hope this helps!
my fave out of my choices:
titanic and orthodox
or something you like
Star, or Sky, Aura, or Hope!
Tank-we have a black pony with that name
i hope these names helpedd !!!!!! :)
How about Duke....to go with Duchess. Many horses years ago were named Duke after the German, Iron Duke,..... Napoleon,..... The Duke of Wellington,..etc, etc.the list is long and all were massive animals with massive strength, yet underneath were soft as muck, extremely loyal and adored by everyone that had any contact with them. During many conflicts, long before mechanized vehicles were in use, these animals were the back-bone of many armies. They also were invaluable on many farms and today provide great pleasure to many people....
Yeah....I reckon Duke would be good, if only to keep Duchess happy..and he is a full hand higher!!!!

I would call it guiness after the pint as he is black and has white socks and heavy.
Lovely breed of a horse to own..lucky you!!!
Calamity Jane is pretty for a female...
for your male:
2.(dark names) Onyx, Raven, Cimmerion, Diablo
Pick and put one of each together
Well you could choose things from like:
The Prince of Wales
Roland of York
: to things that show his personality, like:
Charger, Rocket, Boomer, Abercrombie, Ace, Allstar, Ambition, Ranger, Rebel, Royal Athlete, or Black Beauty if you wanted something like that.
But you said something more middle aged, so maybe something more like, Calvin, Cyrus, Cameo, Caesar or (Czer), or my personal favorite for a big black shire gelding: Caspian.
Just don't rush. Watch him for a long time and learn him, it will come to you. :-) Hope this helped!!
