How to Select a Mule Name?

Frankly, naming a mule is not a big deal. Thanks to their Equus ancestry, mules can have relatable names to either horses or donkeys. Usually, mules deserve simple and cute names; however, the names that have a tincture of amusement, such as funny mule names, are fine as well. You can also go for copying the name of any fascinating and attractive item or person around you for naming your mule.

Here are some tips to make mule names selection more fitting and easier:

  • Similar Animals: As discussed earlier, mules are closely related to horses and donkeys and hence can have a share in their names. For instance, if your mule is funny, you can assign him a title from funny horse names. Nevertheless, you can choose names from other related animals as well, such as the zebra.
  • Initial Letter: It is a good idea to assign your mule a name with the letter ‘M’ as its initial since it is the first alphabet of the animal name itself. Besides being catchy, it will also be easy to remember. Select the one from the list of mule names starting with the alphabet ‘M’ given just above.
  • Color: Mules come in a variety of colors. To make things easy, select the name of horses hued in color similar to your mule. You can check black, white, and grey horse names as these are the common colors in mules too.
