When we think of lawns, we often think of well-hydrated and meticulously-maintained green plots that surround houses.
However, the first “lawns” were nothing more than grass fields, which grew around English and French estates after forests were cleared to make way for buildings.
Lawn care has existed just about as long as lawns! The earliest “mowers” were livestock — cows, sheep, goats, and horses that would graze around castles and homes.
The first lawn mower was patented in 1830 and primarily used for sports fields, cemeteries, and gardens.
Today, a wide range of lawn care tools exist, from simple push mowers to robotic mowers that can maintain your grass with minimal effort.
Below, we have the list of nicknames for lawn mowers, plus a name generator and tips to help you create additional options!

How to Create Your Own Lawn Mower Names
The best name for your lawn mower will depend on your sense of humor and the type of mower you have.
Use these tips to create more name options for your lawn mower and choose the perfect name:
- Get inspiration from the type of mower. If you have a robotic mower, you might want to choose a name inspired by a famous robot from a movie. If you have a push mower, you might want to choose an old-school name that wouldn’t suit a high-tech mower.
- Use lawn- or grass-related puns. Jokes always generate great names, and by using puns or other names that make you laugh, you can really tailor the name to your sense of humor and what you enjoy. Puns like “grass-assination” might be just right for your mower. Plays on the word “mow” also work well.
- Choose something that reflects your lifestyle. Do you participate in mower races, or is your mower solely a lawn care tool? Do you live in the country, or does your mower keep your suburban lawn looking perfect? Choose a name that reflects your environment and lifestyle.
