Most horse owners put a lot of thought into choosing an appropriate horse name. Random horse name generators can help inspire creative ideas for the perfect horse name. Some generators allow you to add words, so if you are including the sire's or dam's name, a farm name or your own name, it will include that in the final result it generates. Here are a few online name generators that can help you find a name for your horse. Good luck and have fun!

One of the most popular horse name generators is on The Ultimate Horse Site. This name generator allows you to add a word to their database, but doesn't necessarily use that word in the results when you click 'create a name'. The results are two word names like Marigold Butterfly, Ebony Sonnet, Brazen Tale. The generator sends back some silly names, but you just click the 'create a name' button to make a new one if you don't like what you get. They also ask that if you do use a name created by their generator that you email them to let them know.

Generator Land has a horse name generator, that although is geared to generating racehorse names, creates some pretty cool names that any horse lover could use. If you've wondered where some of those crazy sounding racehorse names come from, this may be part of the answer. Large breeding operations have lots of foals to name when it comes time to register them, and there can't be duplicate names within the breed registries. So names are sometimes picked with less sentiment than a private horse owner might. However, hit the "Name Your Horse" button to see names that might lead you to the perfect one.

This isn't a horse name generator at all. It is a band name generator for naming your rock band. However, it returns some really cool results that would make great horse names. This generator allows you to add in a specific word you want in your name. By adding the word black, Black Factor, Luminescent Black, Black Alley, Chip of Black and Black Beacon were among the results. Spinach Of The Black Elastic was also a fun but very random result. This one results in some really unusual horse names.
