50 Horse Names as inspired by Disney Movies

By Anne Forsberg


Updated on

Are you a Disney fan? I recently purchased a subscription to the Disney+ streaming service and it has made me realize just how significant their movies were during my childhood. The characters are still very familiar and I was instantly feeling very nostalgic . When watching these films I was struck by the vast array of beautiful names that featured in so many of the movies.

Names such as Belle, Jasmine, and Nala are stunning names in their own right and are the type of names I would certainly consider if naming a horse. Naming a horse is such a fun process and there are so many pretty Disney names that could be on any shortlist.

Here are some of my favourites:
