Sharing is caring!

Whether you just bought a mare or need a name for a brand new filly that was just born, I’ve compiled some of the best mare names into one convenient list for you.

There are so many things to consider when naming a female horse but, first and foremost, a horse barn name can help get you started in the right direction. Maybe this list can help you get started with some great ideas!

Barn Names

It only makes sense to start off with some common barn names that you might use for a female horse. No matter her age or training level, you need something short to call her around the barn.

I mean, show names are cool but calling your mare “Your Imperial Highness the Lady of Ashwood” is a lot more work than just calling her “Lady”.

These barn names are unique because they are perfectly suited for mares and fillies.

Great Show Names for Mares

Let’s get started with a general list of show name ideas for your filly or mare. Each of these horse names was specifically chosen to make it clear that your mount, is a girl.

Naming Your Mare After Flowers

Sometimes She’s All You Need

A lot of unisex horse names can be converted into great names for your mare or filly by just adding a word or two.

In some cases, think of a cool name you might have heard like “He’s A Winner” and add an S!

You can also do things to change the spelling of certain things to make them more feminine like Haley’s Comet could become Hailey’s Comet.

This category isn’t super unique but I’ve included some examples for you.

  • She’s Got Talent
  • She’s Got Bucks
  • Shesa Queen
  • She’s A Winner

How To Pick the Perfect Name for Your Mare or Filly

It’s super easy to find a pretty, feminine name for your mare or filly. Once you have narrowed down your list to your top favorites, try them out on her. A day or two with a new name isn’t going to make a difference to your mare but you will be able to see if the name feels like it fits her.

Sometimes it can take a few tries to settle on the perfect name for your girl but, you should know you have the perfect name once you find it. It will feel like it just fits her personality (or attitude!).

Keep in mind that, while this list of horse names was compiled specifically for girls, this site has a bunch of other horse name ideas separated by color and breed as well. Be sure to check those out if nothing here seems like a good fit!
