The name Ariat is a diminutive of French word name Secretariat, which means ‘Secret’ or ‘Hidden’. Secretariat is famous for being the name of a champion racehorse, also known as ‘Big Red’. He is venerated as the greatest racehorse of all time.

Ariat itself is a compelling name. It gives the feeling of mountains, broncos and cattlemen. However it sometimes has the air of enlightenment and urbanity.

I really like this option and its ability to stand in for names like Aaron, Isaiah or Atticus.

Similar names could include Aroer, Cassius or Atlas.
