List Rules Vote up the funniest, cleverest names to give a donkey or mule.

Who wouldn’t love having a pet donkey? If you’re a lucky new owner and you’re looking for some funny donkey name ideas, this list of donkey names may prove quite helpful. Whether you’re going for classic, cool donkey names or clever donkey names, peruse the list, find the funniest or best options, and vote them up.

Creative donkey name puns are a good way to give your new friend a name that everyone will love. Consider punny monikers like "Donkey Hotay" (get it?) or "Ferris Mueller" (for a mule). Other cute donkey names include "Hee-Haw," "Kong" (as in Donkey Kong), and "Wonky."

You could always go the Hollywood route with your donkey, with names like “Francis” (after the talking mule), “Gus” (from the Disney movie), “Benjamin” (from Orwell’s Animal Farm) and of course, “Eeyore,” one of the most beloved donkeys of all time.

If you decide on a name that's not on this list already, add it! You’ll be helping other new owners of donkeys and mules make their choices, too.
