    I am trying to name a beautiful little filly. I want to use the French words that mean "beautiful Lady" or "Beautiful Horse". Could anyone please give me the words for both of those phrases. I would like to pick from the two. Thanks so much. Jlady

    Welcome to the forum, Jlady.

    Litteraly, beautiful lady is belle dame.

    Beautiful horse is harder to translate, it depends on the age and sex of the horse:
    - Beau cheval for an adult male
    - Belle jument for an female
    - Beau poulain for a young male
    - Belle pouliche for a young female.
    None of them do sound really good as a name, imho, expect maybe pouliche, which also means young woman, but in a not very reverent way (slang).

    May I suggest you to name your filly Belle Demoiselle (beautiful yound lady)? I know there is no horse reference in it, but it sounds so well!
