Naming, after parents.

Recommended Posts

Going though the Halloween babies I bred and sent off, there was a certain Marrow pair that bred 4 eggs, all the offspring were named after them or with a mod to the lineage! ohmy.gif Thank you to the individuals who picked these eggs up!

http://dragcave.net/lineage/AEFhY - I named this one. xd.png

 

Other than that, I was lucky that any offspring were named at all(although those that were, THANK YOU to who got them).

 

Other notable Halloweens being named after parents that awesome people picked up:

I usually take into account the parents' names when I name my dragons. I have a set naming scheme, but I usually use part of the parent names in it, like these.

I have a ton more, lol. I especially make note of the parent names if the person has a naming theme on their scroll. As to having someone name one of their dragons after mine, it's not going to happen. xd.png Only one egg has ever left my scroll lol.

One of my dragons used to be named Serely, and one of the children got adopted and named Serely's Pink Rose, and now Serely has lost her name, but her child still has her name. I thought that was kind of interesting.

Some of my abandoned EG 3rd gen offspring get the surname Olodoo. I find that amusing. Under one hand, I'm flattered they did that. On the other hand, they're Olodee dragons, by what the name means. (Olod=Saurian for Even, oo=shorthand for two, ee=shorthand for three). I dub them Faux Olodoos.

 

Oh, I appreciate the keeping of the surname. It's really nice to see people respecting that. wub.gif

 

It's just kind of funny to see an Olodoo have an Olodoo offspring to me. xd.png

I get that too. A lot of the dragons on my scroll have the surname Aglarond, meaning CB. The person who caught this one kept that name. I love that they kept it (not many do), but by my pattern only CBs should be Aglaronds--2nd gens have their own surname, Estanesse, which is Elvish for firstborn. It's one of those things that's funny, but only to people who know the pattern.

What would be a real shocker: seeing the proper surname. I know I'm not quite so inquisitive to do that, but if I saw a pattern-following surname not on my own scroll, that would be a real jaw-dropper! And would probably fool me, as I go to my CBs and click down to find their offspring using names to ID ones on my own scroll. That would be both hilarious and embarrassing to click a dragon that isn't mine and try to breed it.

 

And I'd probably proceed to try and find the person on the forums and congratulate them.

My dragon is named The Chameleon Circuit. I love what they named the child! http://dragcave.net/lineage/5i2S8

That's fantastic! I'm jealous, I love DW.

 

Anyway, I'm one of those people who like naming dragons after their parents. When I pick something up in the AP or receive one as a gift, I try to continue a surname or blend the names. That's why I have MM Red Foo Wissalo, MM Sydkin's Soaring Heart, MM Luanthe's Shadow, and others. The only time I don't do that is when I REALLY want to name a dragon something.

 

And coincidentally, I've always wanted to name a Bluna "Chicken of the Sea", like the tuna brand. And when I got ahold of my first Bluna, I discovered that his dad is "Dark Blue of the Ocean"... so my name still fit! smile.gif

 

As a side note, all of the dragons on my scroll have MM as a prefix (that's my initials, I like branding my dragons like that), but that's just something I do. I wouldn't want anyone to continue that).

I usually name my dragons after the parents, just because it makes me smile when other people do it with my dragons' offspring.

This is the progency of one of my "Ice country" CB stripeds. I keept the 1st offsprings and gave away the rest. I didn't pay attention to the names of the offsprings until yesterday and I really like them!

I was just browsing through my dragons' offspring and found this little lady, named with a fusion of her parents names. wub.gif So pretty sounding ~

Teehee.

Hylia is just a prefix I use to avoid already-used names, so it's funny seeing it pop up on something that isn't on my scroll. (Or you could just squish the parent's names together if Hylia is too hard to spell) tongue.gif

 

...I still can't get over how gorgeous Skeletal Pearl's name is. Breed of the mother, colour of the father and names from both.
