Naming, after parents.

Recommended Posts

This Ridgewing. I love the name I gave it: http://dragcave.net/lineage/rum6M

Even though I really don't like peanut butter and jelly-

Wait what? The father is my scroll name? Oh my gosh. I didn't realize this until I looked back at the lineage. Whoever owns that dragon is awesome. I want to hug them.

o.o I didnt even think about it I just figured the breeder would be glad someone continued it. should I change it?

In my opinion, yeah, just a bit. Like add an extra space between words or a generation count (I use DragonName I for cbs, II for second gen, III for third etc). I like to name after the parents or prominent dragons in their lineage whenever I can, but I try to make it different enough from the parents that the breeder won't have any problems finding names for their lineage. Some recent examples: Beautiful Carnelian S'tarr II and Beautiful Red St'arr-Light II S'tarr/St'arr is my designation for purebred nebulas and the generation mark tells me what gen they are, both allow me to make a name that reflect the parents without interfering with the breeder's naming scheme.

I've picked up several eggs recently that I had to raise simply for the wonderful naming opportunities!

 

Sometimes, too, it's not as much the parents but farther back in the lineage that inspires me.

I've named a few of the dragons I've been given lately after their parents. ^^ My favourite being Fault In Our Stars, the gorgeous silver I was gifted from a friend. He's named after his mother while also being a reference to John Green's book of the (almost) same title. :3

Thank you! I have a couple other possibilities if anyone else needs names for offspring from that pair. They're a great combination! biggrin.gif
