I don't know any drawing tutorials, the best tutorials are 1. drawing from a picture of from nature 2. examining other people's artwork and 3. practicing.
I was however planning on posting a list of cool words for pony names. I've been having lots of problems trying to figure my pony's name, and while searching for words I found lots of cool ones.
In my opinion you can get the best results by mixing common words with odd words, e.g. Pearl Luster.
If you want to use a complex word as a name you can change it, e.g. Earthquake can be Moonquake.
If you need a mysterious, odd or special character, use two odd words, e.g. Terracotta Citadel.
I might add more words later, but don't take my word for it.
