Tip #0- Consider your pony’s personality before you name them.
Naming a peppy, adventure-loving horse “Sooty” just doesn’t make sense! But naming him “Doug” after the famous black and white bear might be perfect..
Tip #0.01- It’s also important to think about how much they like being around other horses, humans, or both! Horses who are introverted don’t always want to hang out with people constantly and vice versa for more extroverted personalities. Sometimes it can feel overwhelming if there is too much of one thing at once so consider what balance that would work best for your favorite equine friend!
Tip: A good way to figure out
Tip # One: Rarity Factor
Tip # Two: Which Pony Are You Most Like?
Make sure to use your favorite pony, either by name or personality. They have so many awesome ponies that it can be hard to choose which one is for you! The best way to know who’s truly the perfect fit is let a quiz decide. We’ve both taken them ourselves and they are fun little quizzes just waiting for you! Check these out: [link] , [link], and most recently, our own “Everypony Quiz” [link]. Or from the main site here are some of our favorites (and what we got): Derpy Hooves – Twilight Sparkle; Discord – Pinkie Pie; Fluttershy – Rarity.
Tip: It’s a really good idea to spend some time finding the perfect name before just picking one at random!
Tip # Three: Colors, Symbols and More
You’ve got your favorite pony picked out, now you need an awesome name that will match their personality perfectly. If you’re struggling with this step, don’t worry because there are plenty of options for cool names when it comes to matching colors (just in case you wanted to know what color we chose), symbols or even more obscure topics like shapes or flowers! There are so many choices for everypony that it can be hard narrowing them down just one but hey- when they say “the best things come in small packages” they really mean it!
Tip # Four: More Classic, Less Unique
If you’re into more classic names for your pony then we’ve got just the list for you too. We have a complete list of all six main ponies and most of their friends who are considered to be “classic” characters- so that means no obscure or unknown ponies like Derpy Hooves but they do show up on this list. If you want to use any name from our lists make sure to double check which character is associated with them first (and if there is a link in parentheses next to the name, click on it!)

The most popular pony name is Rainbow Dash. (And it’s a girl!) – Applejack has the same origin as “apple.” – Pinkie Pie means “fun and games” in Dutch. Ponies can also be called horses or ponies?
