Coming up with your own name.

If you don’t want to use any of these names for whatever reason, you can always try to come up with your own BOTW horse name. Depending on what you’re looking for, it can be a tiresome process, but a rewarding one nonetheless. For inspiration, try to focus on the way the horse makes you feel. What kind of feelings does it bring out in you, and what does it inspire you to do?

If horses inspire strength, then look for a strong name such as Invincible or Goliath. If you’re more impressed by a horse’s speed, then look for something swift such as Flash or Grasshopper. Maybe you are inspired by a horse’s elegance and grace, or maybe its size, the sounds it makes, or just the way it looks. Inspiration comes when we least expect it, so just close your eyes, focus, and you’ll come up with a good horse name in no time at all.

Alternatively, if you do prefer to get your inspiration visually and you’re good with a pen, you can try to draw your horse and find some inspiration for a name while doing so. Different methods work best for different people, but the result should always be the same: a unique, fitting name for a faithful companion.

Knowing when you’ve found the right name.

This isn’t necessarily a rule that you need to follow, but it can help you if you’ve been struggling to find a good horse name. If you have several that you need to choose from, pick one that rings best to your ears. Also, make sure that the name is relatively short, memorable, and fitting for your horse’s physique. You wouldn’t want to name your black horse Snow White, right?

You don’t need to spend hours and hours trying to find a good name for your BOTW horse. After all, you can always tame new horses and get a do-over. However, I prefer to play with a single horse for as long as possible, which is why picking a good name for it is kind of a big deal.

Conclusion.

Breath of the Wild is an exceptional game for numerous reasons. When it comes to horses, it allows you to tame them and name them, thus making your relationship with them as personal as it can be. I hope that this guide has helped you choose a great name for your BOTW horse and that you’ll tell all your friends about it.

At the end of the day, the best name for your BOTW horse is the one that makes you feel good. Maybe it’s a bit silly, or maybe it doesn’t make too much sense, but as long as it helps you enjoy the game, you can rest assured that it’s the right one.
