100+ Grey Horse Names: Ideas for Airy & Spirited Horses

Grey Horse Names

Adopting a horse is a wonderful experience especially if you have found the one who speaks to your soul! Grey, despite its lack of vibrancy, is truly earthy and whimsical. Horses with monochrome textures and patterns are some of the most beautiful to roam. Grey is not necessarily the coat color, but rather the result of an aging coat, or the combination of white fur on black skin. But both result in stunning and rare-looking steeds! 

Now if you’ve been lucky enough to find one with a stormy grey coat and passionate eyes, well this is the name list for you! We have female and male suggestions, ideas for a Dapple Grey Horse, and of course, a few show horse options.

Finding the Right Name for Your Grey Horse

We understand how important naming your new pet is as their name will stick with them for life. Before settling on anything we recommend spending some time with your horse to find out their personality – you won’t believe how much easier this process will be if you do!

Selecting the right name for your horse should be almost as exciting as bringing them home to the stable for the very first time. However, trying to find the perfect one can leave your head in the clouds! We hope that our list of grey-inspired names has led you to greener pastures and helped you find one your horse truly matches. With suggestions such as Slate, Stone, or Cobble, we believe there’s something great for every gorgeous grey steed.
