What kind of unicorn names do you like the most? Names based on flowers, astronomy, Greek mythology, gemstones or something entirely else? For me, it´s all kinds of unicorn names that attract me, as long as I like the name and its meaning.
Oh, and my own favorite unicorn names! They are Raina, Cassiopeia and Hippolyta. I suppose I like kind of dramatic unicorn names. That´s because Raina means “queen”, Cassiopeia is a name of a constellation based on Greek mythology, and Hippolyta was an Amazonian queen in Greek mythology. “Queen” mentioned again. But I also like how those names sound; they have the kind of grace and power that represent unicorns.
