The British Horseracing Authority undertakes a monthly purge of names. The following lists of names are comprised from the most recent monthly purge and should be seen primarily as a tool to help in the selection of possible names for your horse. In the vast majority of cases the names within this list will be re-available. However, in certain instances, this may not be the case as it may not now conform with the current restrictions as set out in Schedule (E)1 of the BHA Rules of Racing.

    A new set of names will be listed below on a monthly basis. Any name shown will be subject to further checks at the reservation/naming stage to ensure it is free of implications arising from COMMERCIALISM, PHONETIC SIMILARITIES, POLITICAL CORRECTNESS OR POLITENESS and that the name has not been registered since time of this publication. It should not be construed that availability on this page guarantees the approval of a name.
