There’s only one thing cooler than giving your bike a name. It’s giving your bike a name…that has a cool meaning attached.

You’ll seem all mysterious…enigmatic…poetic…a visionary on your beautifully named two-wheeled steed.

So, with this goal in mind, I have put together the greatest-ever list of bike names with meanings! I’ve split things into five distinct sections:

  • Bike names that have meanings to do with speed (because we love speedy bikes, right?)
  • Beautiful female bike names with meanings
  • Badass male bike names with meanings
  • Mysterious bike names with meanings
  • God and goddess bike names with meanings
  • Sporting bike names with meanings

Jett

This name means quite simply ‘black’, so a great name for a black bike.

Mystique

Not just a pop band from yesteryear, Mystique means ‘air of mystery.’

Aphrodite

She was the Greek goddess of love and beauty. Her name literally means ‘risen from the sea.’

Calypso

Circe

Circe was a Greek sorceress, and her name means ‘bird’.

Aria

This name is of Italian origin, and means ‘air’. Aria was a nymph in Greek mythology.

Bike Names After Gods

Hector 

Hector was a Trojan hero in Greek mythology. His Greek name means ‘steadfast’.

Odin 

Odin was the Norse God of Culture, Wisdom, and Death (so three for the price of one). His name means ‘inspiration and rage.’

Achilles

A well-known figure in Greek mythology, Achilles was a great hero with great strength but only one weakness. His name means ‘pain’. Maybe ideal for a bike with just one slight fault (maybe a squeaky wheel kind of thing?)

Heimdall 

This was an old Norse god of good eyesight, definitely something that is required in the cycling world! His name means ‘white god.’

Arthur

This is the Welsh name of the legendary King of England (King Arthur). His name means ‘bear.’

Finn

Finn was an ancient Irish hero whose name means ‘fair and white.’

Griffin

A Griffin is a kind of Welsh dragon, and this name means ‘strong faith’, something you need when cycling down the occasional steep climb.

Adonis

Adonis was a kind of sex-symbol of ancient Greece, and his name means ‘handsome.’

Jason

Jason was a Greek hero, and his name means ‘healer.’

Perseus 

He was a Greek hero that fought Medusa on his quest to Hades. His name means ‘to destroy’ – quite a brutal moniker for any bike to be honest (but that might be what you’re into).

Bran

Bran was the son of the Welsh sea god, and his name means ‘raven.’

Aéd

This was a Celtic god of the underworld (so a pretty bad lad all things being told). His name means ‘fire’.

Apollo

He was the Greek God of the sun, archery and poetry (another weird threesome). His name means ‘to drive away evil’.

Aeneas

Aeneas was a Trojan hero, and his name means ‘praised one.’

Hercules

This Greek God was famous for his extreme strength. The meaning is either ‘strength’ (which makes sense), or ‘glory of Hera’, which is probably a bit weirder.

Hermes

 (Greek Origin) meaning “boundary marker”, messenger of the ancient Greek gods.

I like the idea of being a messenger on a bike. In fact, this whole website acts (in my humble opinion) a bit like a messenger.

Let me just throw in a great video I found while researching this bike naming topic, before we go onto a few more names.

Why do people name their bikes? This is perhaps the reason…

Sporting Names

Usain

Rory

A pretty epic golfer! This name is of Irish heritage and means ‘Red God.’

Tiger

Another fantastic golfer, and a name that means ‘powerful cat’ (probably not surprisingly).

A spectacular tennis player, and, strangely enough, the name ‘Novak’ means ‘novice’.

Ali

If boxing is your thing, then here is the name of the true GOAT. This name means ‘sublime’ and ‘rise and ascend.’

Beckham

If soccer is your thing, then the name Beckham means ‘homestead by the water.’
