    Bird Names for a Princess' Horses

    My main character has recently acquired two horses. Since her brothers spend most of their time as swans, she is going to name the horses after kinds of birds. I have a list of bird names I like but their names don't have to be chosen from it. Since the horses are always together I want their names to go well together.


    Genre of Story: Young Adult fantasy

    Time Period/Location: a fantasy world loosely based on 3rd century Egypt and Persia

    Brief Plot: Thirteen-year-old Zenovie is searching for a way to break the curse that has turned her six brothers into swans - and give up her place as heir to the kingdom in doing so.

    Character 1:

    Character Description: A black mare with black mane and tail and no markings. When she was still in her herd, she was the lead mare. She is the horse Zenovie rides.

    Who named the character: The main character, Princess Zenovie. She previously had a chestnut mare named Dusk.

    Already Considered (if relevant): Nightingale, Crow, Dove

    Character 2:

    Character Description: A dark brown stallion with flaxen mane and tail and white stockings. He is the black mare's mate.

    Who named the character: The main character, Princess Zenovie. She previously had a chestnut mare named Dusk.

    Already Considered (if relevant): Swift, Kingfisher

    My favorite pair so far is Dove & Swift but I'm not sure I want such a soft name for the mare.

    Kestrel
    Raven
    Lark


    Stallion:
    Pegasus
    Peregrine
    Kestrel
    Hawk
    Name lover & Engaged to a wonderful man

    Lilith - Vesper - Francesca - Lark - Viola - Naomi - Eloise - Layla - Amy - Phoebe - Freya
    Zachary - Alexander - Tristan - George - Axel - Dominic - Loki - Malachi- Rowan - Harvey - Griffin


    Bunny names:
    M: Banjo, Chewbacca
    F: Kairi, Pika
    Uni: Bantha, Domino, Tadpole

    @maddyelizabeth I like a lot of those names but most of them aren't birds.

    @sweekune Kestrel and Hawk are both good. Do you think they work well together?

    Right now the pairs I'm considering are: (M/F)
    Swift & Dove
    Hawk & Kestrel
    Hawk & Crow
    Kingfisher & Nightingale
