Naming your four-legged friend should be fun, and with our collection of boy goat names, it certainly is. We’ve herded up our favorite names for male goats, including those with goatish meanings to playful sounds. Let’s meet them together.

Cute boy goat names are always a great pick. These have the light, bright attitude of a playful pet. Of course, there’s Kidd, who’s a fun spin on the name for a baby goat. You could also try out Kip or his rhyming friend Skip. Toby is another contender, and with his boyish charm, he’s right at home on a cute little goat. You could always go for the so-absurd-it’s-cute route, too, with old-fashioned names like Bob, Bert, or Eugene or super people-centric names, like Kevin or Donald.

Appearance-based options are also popular among boy goat names, with colorful monikers like Grey, Red, Brownie, and Blackburn trending. For a petite pet, see Little, or for a big guy, try out Magnum. Don’t forget about names with bearded ties, either, as we all know about goats and their epic facial hair. Bearded character names are a goldmine, like Dumbledore and Merlin. You could try out Yukon Cornelius and Rubeus Hagrid too.

Meanings are another fun place to look for boy goat names like Jael’s “mountain goat.” Capricorn means “the goat,” while Jiles means “small goat.” You can capture your goat’s sweet spirit with Felix’s “happy and blessed” or the “heart” behind Thaddeus.

Goats are well-known for having multiple babies at a time, so you might be looking for twin boy goat names. These are super fun, as you can follow the rhyming route with Bobby and Robby, Buck and Chuck, or Dax and Jax. You can also try out similar-sounding names, like Archie and Alfie or Freddy and Frank.

We hope you find the perfect boy goat names for your list with our collection. Best of luck with your new buddy!
