Rad and Run-of-the-Mill Names for Roosters

Owners of Roosters usually give their big guys strong names or funny names. These names are rad! However, run-of-the-mill names are great for Roosters too.

Here is a list of Strong Names for Roosters:

Hercules, Sampson, Paul Bunyan, Godzilla, Spike, and Beast.

You could even name your rooster after a political “strongman.” Wikipedia notes that a political strongman is an authoritarian who rules a country via an autocratic military dictatorship. Some examples are: Chiang Kai-Shek (China); Idi Amin (Uganda); and Manuel Noriega (Panama.) Yikes!

Here are some funny and punny names for Roosters:

Russell Crow, Cluck Norris, Mother Clucker, Rooster Cogburn, Professor McWattles, and Colonel Sanders.

It is also fun to name your rooster after the most famous rooster of all time: Foghorn J. Leghorn.

Foghorn J. Leghorn is the rooster who appeared in the Looney Tunes and Merrie Melody cartoons produced by Warner Brothers. His heyday was in the 1940s but he is still making appearances in movies.

Foghorn is a tall and large bombastic Rooster with a Southern accent. So, if you have a tall and large and bombastic rooster, this name could suit him well!

Another famous rooster is the Kellogg’s Corn Flakes Rooster. Not many people know that his name is Cornelius which is also a great name for a Rooster.

If strong and funny is not your taste, you can choose a regular Rooster name.

Regular Old Farmyard names for Roosters include:

Little Red, Big Red, Big Bird, and Peck.

Old-fashioned male names also work well, such as: Walter, Roger, Henry, Norman, Leonard, Cecil, Silas, and Mortimer.
