Names For Black MALE Horses

Here are some good ideas to consider if you’re looking for good names for a black male horse. The more masculine names are sometimes hard to find because many names are not gender specific.

This also means that most of the names you find in a long list above can be used for both male and female horses.

Some ways to come up with male horse names are:

  • Name from masculine country leaders
  • Names from darker colors
  • Names from wild nature phenomenons
  • Names from famous racehorses

Names For Black FEMALE Horses

Female horses are often given names that end with an “E” or “Y”. Like Molly, Rosie, Lady, Bonnie, etc.

The same goes for a black female horse which can be a little more of the challenge because the darker colors typically inspire people to come up with more masculine names.

Here are some things to think about when you are trying to come up with good names for black mares and fillies:

  • Combine a color with a female name like Dark Sophie
  • Combine girl names with words from nature like stormy Bella, Purple Lightning, etc.
  • Names from grandmas in the family

We hope all these ideas have inspired you to find a great name for your dark-colored horse. And remember, after a while, you will not think more about the name because it’s the horse that creates the name and not vice versa.
