Horses are amazing animals. If you weren’t raised with them you may have come to idolize them through myths and legends. As a child, I was particularly fond of Pegasus. In fact, my childhood idol, Rainbow Brite, had a majestic white Pegasus named Starlite.

If you are looking for a name for your real horse, or a fictional one, that is perfectly suited for a Pegasus, we have you covered.

Just like with any horse name, names for a Pegasus change with the seasons, especially when movies like Wonder Woman bring them back into our lives to remind us of our childhood dreams.

When we think of Pegasus, we usually think of horses that are pure white or pure black though, if you use your imagination a Pegasus can be any color.
