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.
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.
Male Bull Names
Male bull monikers are quite obvious because, well, bulls are males. Unfortunately, that also means they can be quite ordinary.
A good male name that doesn’t steal from one of the other categories (below) isn’t the easiest task.
Baby Bull Names
Bull calves are cute, whether you want to admit it or not. So it’s really easy to come up with a cutesy name right off the bat.
However, if there is one thing about cuteness, it also opens the door for some pretty unique names.
- Brown cow
Unisex Names for Bulls
Some names transcend masculinity and femininity and cover both sides of the aisle.
Unfortunately, unisex names are more troublesome to come up with, especially since people don’t apply unisex names to anything very often, much less bulls.
Cute Bull Names
Cute names for bulls often run hand in hand with bull calf names.
A full-grown bull is undoubtedly nowhere near as cute as a newborn calf.
- Candy Cane
Good Names for a Bull
While it’s always good to have titles and associate bulls with gods, thunderstorms, cartoons, and video game characters, sometimes a good name is just a good name.
A good name for a popular bull is representative of its strength, power, will, determination, and stubbornness. All are strong traits, even if some are difficult to deal with.
Funny Bull Names
If you stop and think about it, there are some pretty hilarious association-type names you can come up with for a bull.
Some of the best names come from naming them after their own fate or aspects that people often associate with food, milk, and the process of raising cattle in general.
- Big Mac
- Beef Stew
- Sir Loin
Cool Names for Bulls
Bulls are already pretty cool animals, especially Texas Longhorns. They’re giant in stature, viciously quick, and have huge, deadly-looking horns.
You don’t have to wander deep into your creative thoughts to come up with a cool name.
Unique Names For A Bull
With all of the names out there, it’s often difficult to sift through all of it and come up with something truly unique.
This is especially true today, where there is a run on unique names since everyone is tired of the same old, same old.
Strong Bull Names
The easiest way to come up with strong names is to associate them with words that imply strength or defy strength.
Or, you can look at strong people throughout history and steal their names.
Last but not least, there are strong materials, in terms of durability, such as steel and diamond.
- Mighty Mouse
- Rhonda Rousey
Names For A Black Bull
How many different terms are there for the word “black?” The fact is, there are quite a few and several of them make for some pretty good names.
The rest are as closely associated with the anti-color as you can get.
Names For A Red Bull
If you happen to have a bull that’s decidedly reddish, there are a lot of name association games you can play before settling on a good name.
There are a good number of words for red that could easily apply to a bull, despite their long association with that color.
Names For A White Bull
Since white is a reflection of all colors, you could honestly come up with just about anything for a white bull and share an association with white.
You can even associate light, electricity, the sun, or anything that is considered holy in various religions.
Spanish Bull Names
What better names to find for a bull than ones from a country that helped permanently embed bulls within the public consciousness?
The only other sport in the world that comes close is bull riding, which takes place mostly in the American Midwest and isn’t as popular outside of those areas.
- Charco Blanco
- La Vega
Famous Bull Names
There are a ton of famous bulls out there, both alive and historically.
Most of the famous bulls come from either record-setting breeding stock, bull riding, or bull running in countries like Spain.
- Ice Man
- Doc Holiday
- Country Boy
- Big Red
- Secret’s Back
- Winchester Magnum
- Rio King
Disney Bull Names
Most of the names attributed to the bovine species from Disney circles are focused on cows. Fortunately, some of those names are interchangeable as well.
Plus, who says no Disney names attributed to non-bull characters can’t be used for real-life bulls, anyway?
- El Toro
- Yakkity Yak
- Heffer Wolfe
- Heinz Doofenshmirtz
- Diddle Diddle
- Taurus Bulba
Cartoon Bull Names
It might surprise you how often, over the last century, cows and bulls have been portrayed in cartoons.
Whether it’s Looney Tunes or Walt Disney, the names and the bulls themselves are pretty extensive.
- The Laughing Bull
- Heffer Wolfe
- Moo Tan
- Mr Udderly
- Milky White
- Rocky the Bull
- Laughing Cow Cheese
- Fleetwood Yak
- Little Strongheart
- Yakkity Yak
There You Have It
That’s a lot of bull monikers but 425 is only the very tip of the iceberg. There are a lot more names out there as well, especially since people often use human names for bulls.
Bulls are a symbol of strength and indomitable ferocity but they can also be quite gentle, especially when they’re lazing in the sun, chewing cud.
Either way, come up with a good enough name for it, and it’s bound to stick for a lifetime.
