Naming, after parents.

Recommended Posts

I never really cared for it until I saw this thread. Ever since I've been naming my dragons after their parents ^^ (that is, if they have parents with a name xd.png ), even if I don't understand the reference haha

It's funny to mix the father's and the mother's name to create something funny or cool

Didn't expect this dorsal to be named after her parents! I figured whoever picked it up would just be a kind soul - I think it's fairly obvious that the poor little thing was a red fail. But to find that she was named (<3) and even after her parents (<3!) is awesome. wub.gif

 

This seems like an appropriately named dragon to necro this thread with, actually. ninja.gif

It's rather disappointing that none of my dragons' offspring have ever been named after their parents (not counting those bred for people in the Brony Lineage). Most eggs from my scroll end up going to people who don't name them. sad.gif

 

Maybe I should start gifting eggs on threads and requesting that they be named, rather than just dropping to the AP like I usually do.

Though I've not given many bred eggs out(as I have only a few pairs) I really love it when people name their eggs after their parents in some way. Whether it be color, or combinations of names, themes etc. all fun^^

 

I myself when gifted an egg, or I pick one up from a departure thread on rare occasions I always name and always try to stick with the theme of the dragons/dragons parents in someway. biggrin.gif

 

Though I do worry at times the owners of the orginal pair(s) may not like the names heh

 

Short version: Naming is fun both when it's your own offspring that somone has and when you have somone else's offspring. smile.gif

 

edit:@TheGrox: That name both amuses me and gives me horrible nightmarish flashbacks of those movies tongue.gif

I found her on the AP, and kept it going with her daughter, and have two more names held for the next two gens. Time to bloodswap!

Being gifted a split egg sired by Hack and Slash and Smash and Grab, once my egg slot opens up in a few hours. Going to name is Slash and Smash.

 

That's hilarious, prpl.

Ooh, I'm glad to see topics like this! I try to follow naming patterns on the eggs I pick up. Though I worry sometimes that I'm going to interfere with naming patterns or owner patterns and upset the owners of said dragons. So sometimes I tweak a bit.

Like so. smile.gif

I've been trying to get all of my dragons named. I never used to even look at lineages, so a lot of mine have random names. Now, though, I want to get my naming device out of there (Instead of "Ghost's [Name]" for everything), so new dragons have been named after their parents as much as possible. It's fun to see what combinations I can come up with.

 

I'm probably proudest of this Holly (whose name is also a pun!)

 

I'm also fond of this one (the Beaufort scale is how gales are measured).

 

And then we have these:

There are probably a few others, but I think I need to limit myself a bit. I'll have to look for well-named children of my dragons later.

I try to do this when I pick up an AP dragon that has a naming scheme. I think it is cool to continue the naming patterns.

In one of my Ember lines, I just found Teal'c and Drey'auc have a child not on my scroll, also given a wonderfully appropriate SG name, Prometheus of Aurora, and carried out two more generations, Corvus' Cluster of Aurora and Destiny of Aurora! wub.gif

 

To the breeder of those descendants, you did a beautiful job! Thank you! biggrin.gif

I continued a naming pattern with one of the embers I have http://dragcave.net/lineage/o0ilJ

I hope that the breeder did not want to use that name for themselves one day, as it's their main naming scheme for all PB dragons they do breed every week. wink.gif

It's happened to me 4 times on eggs I've sent to the AP. Twice as a garbled mixture of the parents first names, and once my Clan name was reworked in to a new word for the name. The best was when one of my favourite pairings, a 2nd gen from my CB Black female (Wyrdfell Rapax), my first ever dragon, and my CB Ice was named Deo Rapax using my Clan name. Aw, made me feels so warm and fuzzy inside biggrin.gif

Affirming this. I have one from their line too.

is theirs. They totally beat me to the name. Which I'm happy about! It didn't occur to me immediately (and it should have) that they were probably going to want to continue that name.

I love the absolutely silly combination of last names for her.

 

I gifted a Nova a couple of days ago, and was really excited to see that it had been named after its parents, especially as that's very close to the naming pattern that I've been using for my offspring of this pair.
