Horse name meanings ?

So does your horses name mean anything ? Im just curious because i love meaningful names, on horses, humans or just about anything

Stna is just a nickname for the name Kristn, so my mares first owner was probably named that (i really hated that name at first, the guy who sold her to me even said that we could just act as if she didnt have a name because he hated it too ! but it stuck too her and now Im liking it more and more )
Asi means rush in a fancy kind of way !

Draumsn (a mare i ride) i just have to include her name ! I love it, it means vision in a dream !
Grla (another mare i ride) has a horrific name ! It might just look lika another icelandic name, but this is the name of the mother of the 13 icelandic santas ! And the mother of the 13 icelandic santas is an ugly trll (not the ones with the hair, but the real nordic thing ) and she eats children who dont get clothing for christmas ! so everyone was afraid of grla ! why someone would name that pretty, gentle and great mare that, is beyond me ! :roll:

Misty means misty we called her that (she didnt have a name) because we got her on a cold Misty November morning

A good horse can never be a bad colour...

my horses name means devil in spanish diablo
his name before i got him was negro the spanish word for black, and it meant the color not the race, :roll: the little girl who named him was 4 at the time so i cant really blame her,
i was going to change his name not really sure if i can say playboy...but not the girls/magazine or whatevr that is, just the name i wasnt actually thinking about that when i was changing his name i just thought it fit him better than diablo lol *shrugs*

Pistol came with his name but it really fits him because he is definitely a pistol!

The Black, well he came with the name Black and I added The from the black stallion and over the years he became BlackHorse...

Blue, he came with his name too... It's Tombstone... but he's so kind and loving not sure it really fits him...

Beauty came with her name to and she really is a beauty. Her registered name is Shesa Top Vantage (Top Vantage was her father, he was a superior halter stallion, out of Impressive)

Riley, I just like that name! (I named him - I wanted to call him Angel but everyone nixed me) and Just A Top Vantage, I thought it was cute because his grandaddy was such a "big" man I thought it would be cute to say... Just a TOP VANTAGE...teehee...

Style, came with the name....

Wikke is a fairly common Dutch/Friesian name (there's actually an FPS approved stallion with the name: Wikke 404). There's also a flower called wikke, though I don't know how much it relates to the given Dutch name.

Harley, our 7 y/o sorrel/flaxen Belgian Morgan cross, lives up to his name because he's big, beautiful, sleek and powerful like a Harley Davidson. 8) And he's got hair like an 80's rock star. LOL

Rosie, my 20 y/o grade fleabit gray mare, came with the name and it fits her. She's just good ol' dependable Rosie.

Momma Horse, our 21 y/o AQHA Appendix mare, came to us with her 18 month old Paint filly and the nickname Momma just seemed to fit her. She mommies everyone. Her registered name is Pamela Pali. Her previous owners called her Pali but it doesn't suit her IMO.

Our 5 y/o OTTB, Sultry's Wiseman, we nicknamed Sully. Just seemed to fit him.

Keeva (16.3hh 2 yr old bay mare with belly spot) means gentle, beautiful, precious in Irish.

It really fits her. Rarely do I ever call a horse by its name though. They always have nicknames that I seem to say more often then their name.

Hers seems to be kitten.

Cody's registered name is Ritske McCue's Lakota.
The Ritske is for the well known Friesian stallion on his sire's side.
McCue is because he can be traced back to Peter McCue on his dam's side (she's a Paint).
Lakota to suited him because it loosely means "friend to all", and Cody is one of the friendliest horses I've known.
