Name for a prince's horse

I’m writing a fantasy series and a main character, a prince who’s about 21 has a horse currently named [name_m]Saint[/name_m].

The problem is the concept if saints, obviously with its religious overtone, is not.present in this fantasy society.

So I need to rename the horse! She’s a female and white.

I’m thinking Ice or [name_u]Winter[/name_u]?

Further information about the [name_m]Prince[/name_m] might help: his country is based on [name_m]Britain[/name_m], and the patron God of their land is dedicated to agriculture and flora.

Any susuggestions?

Maybe [name_f]Faye[/name_f]? That’s just a me thing, though, I love that name!

[name_f]Snow[/name_f], maybe? I kind of like [name_f]Snowdrop[/name_f]. Snowbelle? It’s kind of like [name_m]Saint[/name_m], and it has the same feel as Ice and [name_u]Winter[/name_u]. [name_u]Winter[/name_u] is also really great!


I loved another user’s suggestion of Snowbelle, that seems to suit what you’re describing well. Alabaster was the name of a white horse in my story, but it seems a bit masculine.
Good luck finding the perfect name!

Whitish names-
Cirrus (like the clouds)

Some fun [name_f]Snow[/name_f] names-

And [name_u]Winter[/name_u] names-

Snowbelle is sweet! I’m not sure it’s a name a guy would choose though. There’s been a lot of awesome suggestions though, thanks a lot everyone.

i don’t know if you need any more suggestions, but i ride english-style and work at a horse farm so i might be able to give some insight.

in general, horses aren’t given word names like Ice or [name_u]Winter[/name_u]. they’re usually given human or title/descriptive names. some examples of the human horse names at the farm i work and ride at are [name_m]Romeo[/name_m], [name_m]Pip[/name_m], [name_f]Aster[/name_f], D’Artagnan, and [name_f]Indie[/name_f]. some title/descriptive names are Charming, Chief, and Phantom (the sweet sweet horse i ride <3. he’s my baby.)

obviously, if your story is taking place in a fictional world, the rules for horse naming could be different. it just bugs me when horses in stories are given straight-up word names. but please do whatever you would like to do.

as such, some names i would reccomend are:
Bianca (means “white”)
Aster (it means star, but i think it’s really a lovely name for a horse)
Cypress (a long-living type of tree)
Garnet (the January birthstone)
Neve (means snow)
Demitria (greek goddess of winter. i think Demi would be a very cute horse name.)
Snowdrop (not quite my style, but i think you would like it.)

hope this helps. xx

Thanks, good points!
I like [name_f]Neve[/name_f] a lot, and [name_f]Aster[/name_f]… it’s similar to the countries name of Asture, so might be fitting…

I could be wrong however I imagine a [name_m]Prince[/name_m] bestowing a name on his horse that represents a character trait he wants in his horse i.e. [name_f]Honor[/name_f]

So how about these?:

[name_f]Fideline[/name_f]- loyal,
[name_f]Ivy[/name_f]- represents Faithfulness
[name_f]Serafina[/name_f]- Fiery,
[name_f]Valentina[/name_f]- Strong, Healthy

Or maybe he thinks of her as his ‘princess’:
[name_f]Sarai[/name_f]/ [name_f]Sarah[/name_f]

Or even his [name_f]Queen[/name_f]:

I hope this helps!

Thanks so much for all the help guys

Update: I’m probably going with [name_f]Eira[/name_f] - welsh for snow and a personal fave

beautiful name…almost put it on my list. i really like it for a horse. :slight_smile:
