The Best Pegasus Names

Are you looking for the best, cutest, and most beautiful Pegasus names? Maybe you’re writing a fantasy novel with a Pegasus character, and you don’t want to name your Pegasus just “Pegasus”? Or then you just want to know what kind of names pegasi have?

You have come to the right place. First, I’m going to share some general information on Pegasus names, and what makes them different from unicorn names. Then, I will list the 100 best Pegasus names from A to Z. The meaning of each name will be explained as well.

What Is the Difference Between Pegasus Names and Unicorn Names?

The names of unicorns and pegasi have many things in common. Unicorn names are gender-neutral; there are no separate female and male names because all unicorns can use all unicorn names. The same applies to Pegasus names; they are gender-neutral too. That’s why we don’t have separate lists for male and female names; you can pick up any name on the list for your Pegasus.

Some unicorn names are based on Greek mythology. When it comes to the names of pegasi, most of them have a Greek origin. That’s because the origin of Pegasus is in Greek mythology. You might be familiar with many names on the list because you know them from Greek mythology. Some Pegasus names are also unicorn names.

Have fun finding your favorite Pegasus name!

  1. Well, I ma not writing a story and I am not planning on writing for now but I am looking to get a good name for my sister’s upcoming baby and really your post has just made it even harder for me here. There are so many beautiful Pegasus names here and it makes it hard to choose for me. The scan shows she’s having a girl though. What do you think?

    1. Pegasus name for a baby? I never thought of that, but it’s a lovely idea actually. 

      If your sister is having a girl, the Pegasus names I would suggest are Ava, Melody, Thea or Vanessa. This is because these names have a mystic vibe, but they’re not too unusual to name a baby with. 

      Anyway, I recommend checking the meaning of each Pegasus name as well (you can find the meaning of each name on this post), so that the baby will have a name with a desired meaning.
