With the Fall on our doorstep, most foals have been born and most of them have been registered. Every year, breeders think of the most diverse names, for their young promising foals. But which names are the most popular this year?

The initial letter this year is the letter R. Hundreds of different names have been considered, from beautiful original names to somewhat special ones. To determine which names were given most often, we have left all possible additions. That means Rafi v/d Debbehoeve has been taken along as Rafi and Ringo STH as Ringo.

The most popular name 'Ruby' was given to a foal over 140 times! The prefix 'Royal' was also very popular and was chosen over 400 times. Other popular names were:

  • Rocky: 107 times
  • Rolex: 90 times
  • Rose: 88 times
  • Rebel: 85 times
  • River: 77 times
  • Roxy: 77 times
  • Remember: 67 times
  • Racoon: 65 times
  • Rhapsody: 63 times

Next year it will be the turn of the initial 'S'. Are you expecting your first foal next year? Or are you planning on breeding in the future? We have listed helpful tips, the most frequently asked questions and information about breeding and registering your foal(s). We also offer a discount on applying for the D-OC certificate for your foal. You can read more about this here.
