423+ Bull Names (BEST Naming Ideas)

Share this post with others or save for later:

Whether you’re looking at a bull plush doll or the real deal, standing a few feet away, casually chewing its way through some cud, coming up with a name is surprisingly complicated. 

Fortunately, you’re not alone and over the centuries, people have come up with some fantastic names for bulls. Bulls are powerful animals but that doesn’t mean you’re limited to overly masculine names. 

For instance, the 2007 PBR World Champion Bull title belongs to none other than “Chicken on a Chain,” a powerful bucking bull who became a legend. “Little Yellow Jacket” and “Panhandle Slim” are two more prime examples. 

While 425 might sound like a lot, you have to remember the number of bull types and species out there. Our list will cover white bulls, Spanish bulls, famous bulls (like those above), male bull names, and even female bull monikers applied to male bulls. 

Let’s dive in.

Bull

Female Bull Names

Of course, there is no such thing as a female bull. However, that doesn’t mean a bull can’t have a female name at the end of the day.

For the most part, females are known as cows, just like they are for alligators and rhinoceros. But it’s ok to “buck” the trend every now and then.
