Horse Name Inspiration

Finding inspiration to name your horse must come from understanding your horse and its personality.

For example if your horse is dark, find inspirations in names representing black or dark features such as Lela (dark haired beauty).

Find inspiration in the minutest of its features such as any marks on the body or color of its hair while getting familiar with the animal first.

Pronounce the name again and again so that you get familiar with it.

You can go by what your horse is—a bit of an alpha mare, a rather quiet gelding—and choose a name that reflects that. It is all about choosing the name which will reflect the energy and good vibes onto your animal.

Or you can give your horse a name that denotes a quality you would like him to have. These lists are just the beginning—use them as inspiration!

If you do not speak or understand Spanish, you are advised to make use of Spanish Thesaurus. It will help you find simpler alternative names for the meaning of what you intend to convey.

If you love the Spanish language, and you do not understand the language or your vocabulary is terrible, you can head over to Google translate to get more exciting names. Type in the word(s) you wish to translate and search for it in Spanish, it will translate. You can make use of the speaker icon to learn how to pronounce the word.


Your horse is no less than a member of your family.

Therefore it is really important to choose a name which the animal can get used to as well as you. Out of the sea of such names, a beautiful Spanish name for your horse is what can bring out its true personality.

Make sure that you choose a name which is easy to pronounce and gives off good vibes. The energy you project onto your animal is really important and therefore a suitable name is a must.
