Selecting the perfect name for your horse is an adventure. Do you opt for something inspired by a famous racehorse like Secretariat, or do you come up with your own unique name? We’ve herded up our top picks for boy horse names to help make finding the right name for your horse a little easier.

So what makes good horse boy names “good?” Well, that depends on your goal. Do you want something that stands out, like the famous horse names Kelso, Damascus, and Lexington, or would you rather something more personalized to your pasture pal’s looks or character? Most opt for the latter unless they’re in the racing industry, where an epic name is necessary.

Scoping out powerful words is an easy way to find unique boy horse names ready for racing. Think bold and brave like Quest or Journey. These may seem simple, but they tell a story, giving the name depth. You could keep it crisp and stylish with Edge or opt for the dramatic with Exodus. Other unique boy horse names include Beacon, Ever, and Hart.

If you’re after male horse names that fit your horse’s look, there are loads of options. A handsome horse suits Beau, while a spotted horse is natural Bryce, meaning “speckled.” Bowie’s meaning of “blond” is right at home on a light-colored stallion, and a brown horse suits names like Auburn, Dunn, and Bruno.

Great boy horse names can be linked to your fur friend’s personality like Rowdy and Loyal. Dash is perfect for a speedy horse, while Maverick, meaning “independent one,” is an excellent choice for a strong-willed stallion. Aces in training suit Boone, meaning “good,” and Izaan, meaning “obedience.”

Epic meanings often exist behind the best male horse names, catapulting them from ordinary to extraordinary. While it may not be the first place you’d look, a great meaning can make a moniker all the more remarkable, like Amias’ “loved.” We love the resilience of Atlas’ “enduring” and the hidden “champion” behind Nigel. For a touch of dramatics, see Maximus, meaning “greatest,” and for some good old-fashioned strength, see Koa, meaning “brave.”

Boy horse names come in a variety of styles. We hope you find the perfect name for your horse amongst our picks.
