On the naming of racehorses....

I find it strange and amusing what names owners give to their race horses. Is there any rhyme or reason (no pun intended) to naming...?

I know that some are combinations of sire and dam names as if to form a name from both...but still there are a lot of strange, strange names for example, today there is a horse named "Croissant".....or "Normandy Beach" or "Cimpl Man"...

Now horses are living beings and we have relationships with them..so what, do we as handlers say, "Here, Normandy Beach, here Normandy Beach, come get your carrot, Normandy Beach...?

Or how about the name "Next Shares"...? What has that name got anything to do with a living breathing horse...?
