Many breeders and owners of horses, especially Arabian horses’ owners desire to give a name to their horse and a name which should be an Arabic name. This has been a kind of tradition of giving an Arabic name to a horse when it comes to naming an Arabian breed. Although it is never easy to give a name which will stay with it for life and it will be registered with the authorities and considering such responsibility, it is a tough task.
This is a kind of responsibility because the name of the horse also represents its personality just like humans. Either it’s a cat or a dog or human baby, naming one has always been an arduous errand. Also, some people who own Arabians are not familiar with the language and they find it difficult to find out what people in Middle-East use the words for their pets or horses.
Then again not all Arabic names can be used for naming a horse. So, a little knowledge of the Arabic language is a must for people in the west. Because what people mistaken is that, they see the list of names online and pick anyone while in the Quran, there are 99 names of God and one might not know which one is it, so completely avoid doing that.
How to name your Arabian Horse
- 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. Which means the nouns in Arabic grammar is feminine and masculine. This also means that many different names can be a perfect fit for both fillies and colts.
- There are other means of naming the Arabian breeds like; consider the color of the coat of the horse. 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.
- Not always 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 hamraa (for filly) but these colors mean red color in general. A black-coated horse is called adham (for colt) and dahmaa (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.
