Horse Name Inspiration

Let your imagination run wild as you think of a horse name that reflects you!

If you are more cliché, you might want to look into famous names and names from horror movies. If you are more interested in traditional names, maybe it would make more sense to check out male and female alterations.  

You may want to use your horse themself as a source of inspiration. Getting to know your horse can offer powerful insight into its rightful name.  

If personality is not much of an interest for you, you should try to take into consideration some of your favorite things like your favorite hobbies, your favorite people, and even your favorite colors.

These are small places to start that can lead to much bigger ideas. 

Take these base ideas for instance to get you started to name your skeleton horse:  

  • Horror Movies 
  • Fictional Characters 
  • Role Models 
  • Family Members 
  • Favorite things 

With these things in consideration, you might have an easier time finding a name that you enjoy and are comfortable with! 

Help Choosing the Right Name

Choosing the right name can be a difficult and lengthy process. As you name your horse here are a few things you should take into consideration: 

  • Appearance 
  • Gender 
  • Experience Taming Them 

If you are still struggling to find the right name, it can be helpful to reach out to someone for help.

This might be a family member or a friend for advice who you ask for advice. Sometimes, a fellow player may also be able to offer helpful suggestions. 

Contact other players’ Minecraft forums for friendly advice and check what names they have come up with. After all, there is no better place than the Minecraft community for advice about, well, Minecraft! 


Before choosing a name forever, you might want to observe your skeleton horse for a moment (if possible).

Always remember, there is a time limit for how long your horse can remain untamed before it will disappear. These horses will not automatically respawn, and you will be required to go through the whole process again.  

Taming a wild skeleton horse is a major accomplishment for any Minecraft player. An even larger accomplishment is finding the right name for your new mob.

It can be a difficult and lengthy process but once you land upon the right name, it makes your gaming experience that much better! 

Whether you are looking for a goofy name like Red Rum or something more serious and demented like Caroline, you will know once you find “the” name.

It is important you select a name you feel is deserving of your new horse and that reflects you as a person and your experience as a gamer.

If you’re still looking for more inspiration, check out these awesome lists of horse names!
