From Maria in Bulgaria:

Nokota” for Galena’s foal – her foal will be Lakota’s grandchild and the name is similar to his.
I find the name “Nutella” very cute for Heritage’s foal,if it is a liver chestnut/chocolate color.
For Galaxy and Hera’s foal it would be cool if the foal is dark to be called “Nyx” which from ancient Greek means “Night”.The name “Nymph” would work for a filly too.

Other names that I like are Nialla,Neptune,Nelina,Nevena,Nikita. I would like to see some more foals named with native American names. This is where Pryors are located and the native american names sound more special than the others. Here are some that I found:
Nikiti(smooth) Nita(bear) Nina(strong) Nashoba(wolf) Nova(chases butterflies) Nituna(daughter)

I also think that “Namib” is a good name for Firestorm’s foal, it will continue the tradition from Kalahari.And I really really love the name “Nomad”.

From Amelie, who lives in New York and sometimes France:

I just recently realized that all the horses born in the same year are given names that all begin with the same letter! It’s the same in France–if you have a purebred or a dog with a pedigree, you give your dog a name that begins with the letter assigned to that year. Apparently, the letter in France for dogs is I. Something about keeping track of purebred origins or something?

How about New York:D

On the more serious side:
Noel/Noelle (can work for male or female!)
Neo (Keanu Reeves’s character’s name from the Matrix!)
Nahla (from the Lion King!)
Nessie (Lochness Monster!)
Nymphadora (I’m pretty sure this is a character from Harry Potter)
Naima (pronounced Nah-ee-ma)

That’s all I’ve got for now. I especially like the Nutella name!

Nieves is actually a first name for girls in Spanish-speaking countries, or at least it is in Spain. :) So I like Nieves (not just Nieve, it looks weird to me without the S) a lot.

Other human names I came up with:
Nicole, Nadia, Nadine, Nellie/Nelly, Natalie, Nathaniel (Nate for short), Napoleon, Nelson, Ned

Place names:
Navacerrada-town outside of Madrid, Spain
Nairobi-city in Kenya
Navarra-region in Spain
Naples-plenty in the US and the original in Italy
Nantucket-MA, US

Narciso-means daffodil in Spanish
Ninja (blame this last one on the fact I work in the comics industry and am surrounded by geeks all day long. I wouldn’t actually name a horse this but I just thought it would be funny to add to the suggestions)


 From Clarissa, from California:

I’l repost what I had mentioned in another post as well as few more I came up with.

Nighthawk, Night Sky, North Ridge, North Wind, North Star, Nebraska, Nevada, Nez Perce, Navajo, New Mexico, Nelson, Nightingale,and New Moon.

An idea I have for Galadriel if she has a filly is Nimrodel. I’m a LOTR fan and I read the books once a year, so this name stuck out at me for Galadriel. Nimrodel was a stream that ran out of Lothlorien where Galadriel lives. It was named after an elf maiden.

Or there’s Nenya, Galadriel’s Ring of Power.

Navy Blue
Niagra Falls
Native Dancer
Nitro if Firestorm has another spitfire colt.
Noir means dark or black in French.
Still on the Lord of the Rings track, Narsil, Numenor

From Lori:

I do like Nokota, Noel, Noah.

Nabisco; Nalda or Naldo is Spanish for Strong; Narcisa is Daffodil in Spanish; Neiva is snow in Spanish; Nanook, Nemo, Niko, Nutmeg, Nickles (for John, president of the PMWMC); Neon; Narnia;
The following are Native American: Nahele means forest; Namid (Star Dancer) is Chippewa; Nina (strong); Nituna (daughter); Nodin (wind); Nova (chases butterfly) is Hopi;
and finally Nabil means noble in Arabic.

 Newton, for Isaac Newton, he was an English mathematician, astronomer, inventor, and natural philosopher.

From Shawn:

Running through the mother list, and not too many names are immediately hitting me, but I am sure more will come as I think about them.
For Galaxy/Hera, a filly could be Nova – meaning new, like his bloodline, and also an astronomical phenomenon.
Hataalii comes from Navajo, so, yeah
Innocentes – Naive? Not sure I like that as a name
Depending on sex, Nightingale or Nighthawk for Dove’s

From Maleah:

Names I like:

Night Hawk

Ok so I thought things through and well I think Doves foal should be named Noah because of the story of Noah and the dove. If the foal is a filly then Noelle.

I think Galaxy and Heras foal should be named Nova or Nasa.

For Fools Gold I think November would be a cute name.

Other names could be:
Nikoli (invis. e so i says name)

From Livi:

Here are some names I found online.




North, Northern, North Star, Northern Lights


From Shalia: 

Nemesis (a Greek goddess; winged balancer of life, daughter of justice). Could be for Fiasco as a balance name.

For Hera and Galaxy babies:
Nasa (NASA)
Neptune (planet; god of the sea)
Nike (Goddess of victory; victorious)
Naolin (Aztec god of the sun; Spanish)

Namid (Star dancer; Native American word) for a baby with Morning Star as a father.

Naveen (beautiful, pleasant) Irish name for Gaelic Princess baby.

Nebula (since she is in Cloud’s band)
Nickel (mineral)
I also had though of Nitro (also a type of mineral)

Noble for a Duke baby.

Naolin as a possible for Isadora since it is a Spanish name.

Just some other possible names:
Nadie- wise (Native American)
Nina- favor; grace (Native American)
Nacoma– wanderer (Native American)
Nero– black; stern, powerful (Latin; Spanish)
Nirvana– enlightenment, bliss; oneness with God
Nizhoni– (nee-zhoh-nee) comes from Navajo word meaning beautiful
Niyol– wind (Navajo)

Nayeli- I love you (Native American)
Nyla– Cloud or champion (Gaelic)

Nirumbee. This is a Crow word for the little people that supposedly lived in the Pryors. They were ferocious but also would impart spiritual wisdom.

From Laura Curtis:

For a Blue Moon daughter, I like Nokomis from the Longfellow poem, “Hiawatha.” It says “from the full moon fell Nokomis, daughter of the moon, Nokomis,”

From Elizabeth:

We have a few Washington state tribes that begin with the letter “N”: Nisqually (people of the grass land), Naches (pride or joy), Nooksack (mountain men or people), Neah (Moving or descent). I also like Nonet (meaning the 9th one) for the ninth foal.

From Linda D:


Namid—Star Dancer
Nova—Chases Butterflies

Napayshni—Courageous (Napi for short?)
Nikan—My Friend

From Michael M:

I like Nokota, Native Dancer, Nokomis and Nyla from the above posts. I really like the Native American and Spanish names for the Pryor’s and other Spanish types. Nina is really good as Nina or Nino (with an ~) in Spanish is little girl or little boy. Also Nita– little sister or dearest sister, Norte is north but also your inspiration or guide. In Northern New Mexico, we say Novedoso or Novedosa for a curious, nosy or one who listens to gossip. Nieto/Nieta is grandson/granddaughter. Noche is night for a black foal and Nieve is snow for maybe an early foal born in the snow. For White Cloud’s foals, Nube is cloud and Nublado/Nublada or Nubloso/Nublosa is cloudy.

1. Northern Dancer

3. Nimbus
4. Night Dancer
5. Nokota
