1. Coat/Fur Color

The color of your horse’s coat is the most common parameter when choosing its name. This would fall under the physical trait parameter. The color of a horse is the first thing that is noticed by a person, which makes it the perfect starting point when deciding upon a name. 

2. Horse Breed

The next popular parameter for a name would be the breed type of the horse. There are several types of breed available out there. The breed is a strong aspect when determining the lineage of a horse. 

3. Personality Trait

The next parameter for naming a horse would be to gauge the personality of the horse. Every horse is a unique animal in terms of its characteristic features and temperament. This is akin to any other living creature. Therefore, choosing a name based upon the temperament of the horse is a good parameter for a name. 

4. Popular Figure

In case when somebody is still undecided regarding a name for their horse, a common trend would be to name your horse after a popular figure. This could range from choosing a name of a warhorse of the past, mythical horse, celebrity, or animated character. There are no limits as there is no hard and fast rule to naming a horse.

Help Choosing The Right Name

While choosing the right name for your horse, an owner must set their pre-requisite well in advance. These could depend upon the purpose of owning the horse. While many stable owners may have horses for breeding purposes, others could be more definitive in their need, like as a show horse or rescue horse, etc. Therefore, the purpose of the horse could help a lot in determining the sub-category for a name. 

If an owner intends to use the horse as a show horse, the name must stand out just like the horse. In most cases, such horse names are a combination of two words and are quite catchy in nature.

In the case of a rescue horse, the name could be easy to remember, peaceful yet re-assuring. Names such as Angel, God-Speed, Heaven-Send are just some examples when it comes to a rescue horse. So the purpose of the horse plays a big role while selecting the name as it allows others to associate the name with the animal better.

For instance, a racehorse name is supposed to stand out amidst a crowd. This helps people remember the name while placing bets. The same can be said for show horses as well. 

The gender of the animal is another important parameter. A mare name would differ a lot from that of a stud. This provides another opportunity to filter out the right name of the horse. The list above has categorized male and female horse names for the same purpose. 

Conclusion

In conclusion, the horse is a versatile creature, and so is the process of naming them. As with any animal as a pet, the name is an extension to the personality of the animal. Therefore, it is imperative to name the horse in accordance with its style, personality, and purpose.

The parameter for naming could differ from owner to owner and horse to horse. As there are no set rules, the sky is the limit when choosing a name. One can get as creative as possible, keeping some form of logic intact, or completely creating a new mix all together.

Ultimately, the pet will still be the elegant and graceful creature that it is. A name would further enhance the personification of the animal with its owner.

There have been many instances of creative names that have turned out to be favorite among many. So an owner can get as creative as needed and may choose a name that they feel is best suited to their little pony. 

That being said, the name should not be too long for comfort. Human beings have a very limited attention span. Short names of two-word names serve as the best combination, which is easy to remember and yet packs quite a punch.
