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.

Pick Name from Colour

There are other means of naming the Arabian breeds like; consider the colour of the coat of the horse. In the Arabic language, the colours are also pronounced and spelt differently.

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

Arabian Names from Translation

Not always the names of the horse colours match with the regular names of colours.

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

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