One thing I enjoy doing with a zone specific pet is to name it after an NPC from the area. For example, my Ghostsaber is named Kyndri, after an NPC in Auberdine. My boar on my Tauren hunter (same armored black boar that you have, actually!) is named Sergra, after an NPC in the Crossroads.

Silverback is a movie based on a killer boar... that might work due to the silvery armor on hits back...
