Both of those names would be considered copyrighted material and not be allowed to be used. The only way you could get around it is if you knew a real person named Diana Prince and she gave you written permission to use her name.
According to pedigreequery there have been 10 horses named Wonder Woman with the earliest being in 1936 and the most recent being 2013.
None named Diana Prince, though.

For fun I checked, there's likewise two dozens of Batmans (only one Bruce Wayne from 2014) and a similar number of Supermans (5 Clark Kents including two from 2011 but one is from USA and one from Turkey). I also tried a bunch of disney characters/movies (cause they're notoriously draconian about copyright in a way DC isn't) and there were horses for all including some as recent as the early 2000s. I'm not sure copyright is an issue - I thought only names of real people were (unless express written permission).

"The Bobby" has been submitted for him. Why do they hate him so much? :lol:
Hold up, it's now approved. Coolmore has all the power.

The 1999 Wonder Woman was bred by Joseph Allen, and out of Wandering Star, a graded stakes winner.

Good grief. I heard the first name they submitted was Dirt in the Skirt, presumably from A League of Their Own. Can't see the "Humor" in either name for this well-bred little one.

I was glad to see Dirt in the Skirt was rejected, but then this one came and I thought Dirt in the Skirt sounded a little better :roll:

Given that you only need to change one letter to get 'Happy Hooker', I doubt they were referencing baseball with 'Dirt in the Skirt'. They're both wretched names for a filly.

^^Fortunately, someone had the sense to call and cancel the name "Happy Hoofer" for the Oatsee filly.

Glad for that! Cheery Oats may not win "horse name of the year," but MUCH better than Happy Hoofer.

I've been following this guy - who remained unnamed - for many months. He had been working since August at the SLR training center and I was concerned about his welfare. It was very good to see a published workout for him today...and he also got a name. (Tabit was their first choice but was was rejected because it was similar to a name already in use, Thabit.)

Sweet Damsel will be 23 years old next year. I wonder if she'll be bred again. Her 2017 Pioneerof the Nile filly has been named Sweet Baby Girl after Viva La Vida was rejected. I'll add that to the 2017 Names thread.

I hope Fightinirishtabit is very successful. He has survived that terrible fire and I love his breeding.
