How to Name a Cowboy or Cowgirl

The original American cowboys and cowgirls were typically first-generation European migrants, and their names usually sound traditional. Examples include John, William, Robert, Walter, Albert, Anna, Emma, Clara, and Alice.

Country Singer Names

These names also work great for country singers. Instead of a band name, they often use their given name or a stage name with a cowboy or cowgirl sound. You can also check out our country band name generator.

Cowgirl and Cowboy Nicknames

In addition to selecting a name, if you’re creating a western character that is an outlaw, lawman, or otherwise has a reputation, they may have a nickname. You can place these at the start of the name or in the middle (e.g., ‘Wild’ Bill Hickok or Billy ‘the kid’ Bonney). Here’s a list of ideas for adding a nickname to the names above.
