This is a list of military divisions of all nationalities that are identified by name. In many armies divisions have been given both a name and a number; they are listed here if they are commonly referred to by name in English publications.

Note that in the British Army prior to April 1915 many Regular Army and Territorial Army divisions were designated by name. After April 1915 all divisions were assigned a number. For example the East Lancashire Division became the 42nd Division.
