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.

Agamaggan is a boar god that fought alongside Cenarius in the War of the Ancients. He is worshiped by quilboars, orcs, and even some night elves.

Here's some random boar related names from mythology:

ARES - the Greek god of war, had the ability to transform himself into a wild boar, and even gored his son to death in this form to prevent the young man from growing too attractive and stealing his wife.

HILDESVINI - Battle Swine in Norse Mythology, rode by Freya.

ÓTTAR - Freyja's protégé whom she turned into a boar to conceal his identity.

BORAZ or GORAZ - Persian word for boar, sometimes added to a person's name to show bravery and courage.

VARAHA - the third Avatar of the Hindu god Vishnu, in the form of a Boar.

SWINTON - Scottish clan name said to have been obtained from their bravery and courage at clearing their area of wild boar.

DEAN - The Beast of Dean is a mythical boar-like creature said to have lived in The Forest of Dean in England.

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