Cheveyo (by Mimi)


It's my first horse's name. He is a beautiful leopard appaloosa. This name fits him so well and it means "spirit warrior."

Lakota (by Sam)


It's the name of a horse I ride in real life. He's an appaloosa horse and I just love to jump him!! It's just a different name and I like it.

Nacoma


I like this name for a horse. It sounds very American Indian like. :)

Kamanchee


That's my paint Tennessee walker's name. Love him!

Cochise


I chose this name because I just got a new Indian blue roan mare and I think it fits perfectly since she has a feather in her mane!

Quil


I just love it because it's off of twilight and is an Indian Quiluete tribe name ;D That's my tribe! I have a gelding named Quil and a mare named Quinsy!

Cheyenne


I love the way it sounds, and it suits a brown or chocolate colored horse. The name is from an Indian tribe.

Sacajawea


Western... Old Fashioned... Has Flair... Just a cute name for a horse.

Camanchi


It's because I know a horse named Camanchi. It's pronounced (Ca-Man-Chee). He is the horse I ride in riding lessons.

Osceola


Great name for any stallion but I think it goes better with a paint horse because Osceola was the Seminole Indian chief. I call may horse Ozzy for short!

Cody


I think it's a really cute name for a male horse!!

Walela


It is an Indian woman that sings and it's my mom's favorite band, well kinda like a band. I think it's a great name for a filly or mare that is an Indian.

Hi! I am trying to come up with a name for my new colt. He is a gorgeous paint and I always give my horses native American names but I want to give him a name that is not common and overused. He has a very special personality and I want to do him justice! :-)

I have named a horse of mine, Matoaka, and also another name that I can't remember. Lol. Amazing names, love it!

Born in Florida raised in Australia, so wish I had the accent. Oh well!

Cody is not an Indian name. Also, try Cloud Dancing for a white horse, Running Bull for a thoroughbred or Clever Crow for a black horse.

American Indian Horse Names
by: HorseLuvr4Evr

I think this is probably most appropriate for an Appaloosa, because that is the main horse American Indians rode.
This is where I will probably be the least creative. I honestly just searched up Native American names or something like that and found a website... www.snowowl.com/swolfNAnamesandmeanings.html.
It is very helpful, and safe!
I am not as creative as for Girl Horse Names/Baby Horse Names, but I hope this helps.
Sincerely, a True Horse Lover ;)
