How to Name Your Arabian Horse

Understand Language

The Arabic language is full and rich in grammar. But you don’t need to convert into a Sibawayhi (an Arabic linguistics scholar) to pick a name for your horse.

All you have to do is understand that Arabic language grammar is based on gender. This means the nouns in Arabic grammar are feminine and masculine. This also means that many different names can be a perfect fit for both fillies and colts.

Pick Name from Colour

There are other means of naming the Arabian breeds like; consider the color of the coat. In the Arabic language, the colors are also pronounced and spelled differently.

The color for masculine is easy to speak as compared to the color for a feminine, especially for people who don’t know about this language.

Arabian Names from Translation

Not always do the names of the horse colors match with the regular names of colors.

For example, a horse coated in Bay color will be called Ahmar (for colt) and Tamara (for filly) but these colors mean red color in general. A black-coated horse is called Adham (for colt) and damaha (for filly), whereas, Aswad is the name for black color.

Although these names sound classic and cool, you cannot fully consider it done, since the colors of some horses change after some time.
