Western destination baby names
Some of the coolest cowboy or cowgirl baby names come from Western or country destinations. Any of these names would make a great first or middle name for your child.
- Carson (Carson City, Nevada)
- Colt or Colton (after a ghost town in Utah)
- Weston (town in Wyoming)
Famous cowboys and cowgirls
If you are looking for a unique country western name, look no further than famous cowboys or cowgirls from the past and present. The name Clint, after actor Clint Eastwood, would make a perfect country name, as would Maverick, after the TV show of the same name. Wyatt, after the famous Wyatt Earp, as well as Waylon, after singer Waylon Jennings, would make fine names for your future cowboy. Hank, after singer Hank Williams, or Bronson, after Charles Bronson, are two more great choices.
As far as famous cowgirl names, Annie Oakley is one of the most famous cowgirls. Mollie Monroe, Belle Starr, Pearl Hart, Tillie Baldwin and Georgia Duffy — or even Jessie from Toy Story 3 — are all famous cowgirls with great names.
Western cowgirl names
Can’t decide between two names? Why not combine them to create the perfect country western cowgirl name? Some examples include Ruby Mae, Sarah Belle, Sarah Jane, Sue Ellen, Mary-Beth, Mary-Sue, Mary-Ruth, Skye-Blue, Skyler-Jean or Norma Jean.
