Naming a rooster is not something you should take lightly.
The rooster rules the roost of the backyard flock, and most of them mean business. So, giving them an awesome name that reflects their personality is always a fun thing to do.
A lot of owners always ask about rooster names in Spanish. The rooster, and chickens in general, have a long history with Spain, Portugal, and associated countries in Europe.
The bright colors on the Red Junglefowl, one of the most iconic looking roosters, always makes me think of sunny locations like Spain for some reason. Maybe you’re on the same page?
Anyway, if you’re looking for Spanish names for a rooster or a chicken, I’ve put together as many awesome names as I could possibly come up one.
I hope you find the perfect name you’re looking for!

Spain has an interesting and extraordinary history. I’ve been lucky enough to visit the country a couple of times, and I’m a huge fan.
If you’re looking for more Spanish-inspired names and ideas, here are some of the things Spain is best known for culturally to spark some ideas:
Food – If you haven’t experienced a wide range of Spanish dishes, you’ve been missing out. Gazpacho, paella, patatas bravas, pisto, and turron are some of the most popular dishes.
Music – Flamenco and jazz are two of the popular traditional styles of music. I love the flavor of their traditional music played on the acoustic guitar, who doesn’t?!
