The majority of my dragons are named via their code, although I'm starting to drift away from it now, I still try to use the first letter.

 

Some of my more obvious ones/favourites as examples:

Zekke (zkzN)

Lhaqua (LhqZ)

Iakuu (ia7U)

Tyzape (TZPe)

Byrndazke (BnDz)

G'kariah (Gkar)

Meiis (Meis)

Hasuike (HUSW)

I don't do it unless I get one that instantly strikes me as "hey, that's cool!"

I was going to name my bred silver after its code if it turned out female, since I really liked the code (sqtX). Too bad he gendered male.

I traded him to someone who liked the code, though, so I hope they name him appropriately. :]

ack, i voted No, I haven't had any usable codes, so then i looked at my current dragons and saw that my little purple had the code m7pv, and i proceded to name her MVP, wich stands for most valuable player.

Only once, with Hamsi.

She had a sibling whose code was H4Mz.

Only once. My frozen male Mint is named "Chris of December" because his code is "Noel", Chris coming from Chrismas and December obviously being the month of said holiday.

Nope, I make up names. The names would turn out weird if I used their codes. =P

Yopp: Yopp

The first one is the code, and the second is the name, if you couldn't tell. XD

I know this thread is old, but I didn't want to duplicate, and I have an awesome code that I'm totally thinking of keeping in the name.

 

My Magi egg is npc6 (caps messed). Yay NPC's! Without them, what kind of barren wasteland of gaming we would live in!

 

Also, my winter egg code is eien (caps messed) but when I first looked at it, I thought it was Elen, so I was like "I hope this one's a girl!" (Plus, I need a Winter Female for the Seasonal Breeding!)

Wise- Abysmal Wisdom(I went through a lot of variants of names with Wise in it before settling for this)

I have a vine with the code UPBT. Someone suggested an awesome name based on that, but because the parent's naming scheme seemed to be about angels, I restrained myself.

With the exception of a couple (my first silver and gold), I base all my dragon's names of their codes. Small sample:

 

Plateva PL8v

Sabith Sabh

Yoa and Aya YOAY

Stevira sTVr

Haninewa hNnW

 

Those were the easier ones to work out....

I caught a black egg with an awesome code and I now have several named after their codes

 

Mifs-Mifs (this is the one that started it for me)

Gekor-g3K4 (If he had been a girl it would have been Geka)

Zacqui-ZcQC (Was tempted to call him Zacquic)

Kygor-kYg1 (To bad he was male or he would have been Kygi)

FauxBAM-FxBM (I don't know what I was thinking)

Two Dimentions-TuDi (Get it? 2D, Two Dimentions. He's a split, too!)

A Forque-o4QQ (Mainly the middle two characters)

 

I was also tempted to call Grildragos (code GNBF) Good Night Best Friend, but chose not to.

I usually like to find a name with a related meaning (because I'm a geek) or derive a name from the dragon's parents'. I have got one dragon named after his code, though - Erufiel (fiel).

All of my Dinos are named after their codes, just 'cause I'm lazy.

 

And here are my other dragons named after their codes:

YUMS - Yuhms

Logo - Rhetorical Logos

HrhR - Hurhur

rOAd - Cobblestone Path

Mostly, I'll get inspiration for names from one or two letters in the code. However...

 

iLlu = Illuminati Lux

 

bLto = Storm of the BLT Sandwich (I feel horrible for giving him that name, but it *was* better than Bacon, Lettuce, Tomato...)

I've never done it so far, but I will do it if my hatchling turns out to be male. If it's a female I can't use the name
