Naming, after parents.

Recommended Posts

I don't always, but lately have been trying to follow lineage conventions, but I thought maybe I ought not to in case the owner of the parents wanted to keep the options open for their own offspring. (I only read the first four pages and page 51 (currently the last page) of this thread, but what I read so far seems that people don't mind other people appropriating their linage names...

 

And I apologize in advance if the link doesn't work - but I'll try - Kiradotter lineage - I'm particularly proud of that naming that I did - though, granted, it looks odd for it to be a male two-headed with the surname of 'Kiradotter'....

I have a relative of that one, named after her parents. Bones of Rooks.

 

I also have one descended from some of your dragons, and named to continue the awesome Coheed & Cambria theme. Tender Heart Liberties

How did i not see this before?

That is WONDERFUL!

I'm surprised you havn't seen something from my pair Coheed and Cambrea(because Cambria is taken on some messy stone sad.gif )

Thank you!

I have a Coheed lineage project...being multiple different lineages with the names based off of songs and characters

I name my dragons after their parents as much as I can laugh.gif

 

Apparently they were discussing rooms in a house: http://dragcave.net/lineage/GfZ35

I wanted to keep the awesome surname: http://dragcave.net/lineage/LGHiR

I'm not too sure what was going on here, but I tried: http://dragcave.net/lineage/kujuL

I couldn't help but play with the "doom" naming scheme laugh.gif: http://dragcave.net/lineage/2Kb62

Using the names of parents and its code: http://dragcave.net/lineage/GssSs

Continuing the "of the Diseased" naming: http://dragcave.net/lineage/XtKFH

Using both parents again: http://dragcave.net/lineage/AT3Zs

Mixing Parents into one: http://dragcave.net/lineage/UOIMr

Using "HugZ" from both parents: http://dragcave.net/lineage/oOmU1

I enjoy naming dragons after their ancestors.

 

I will try to pick a name stemming from one or both sides of the family. smile.gif

 

Or if there is a theme to the lineage, I stick with the theme.

 

Some dragons named after their lineages or one or more of their ancestors:

 

http://dragcave.net/lineage/sWVhC - named after the Thundercats lineage theme plus the Unholy lineage

http://dragcave.net/lineage/rx2uF

http://dragcave.net/lineage/OKqvk - named along the same Police Academy theme as his ancestor, Commondant Lassard

http://dragcave.net/lineage/BnYlK

http://dragcave.net/lineage/U81sj

http://dragcave.net/lineage/2TxME - named after the Thuwed Draconis lineage

I don't know if this technically qualifies as I left the "codes" as the "names" of these dragons, but they were not an easy match to make as they were both 4EG with special lineages. Took awhile to find the perfect mates. But while I love all the various progency names, I think this one is extra special: http://dragcave.net/lineage/ndllX. Much Win.

The Gold parent of this dragon is my offspring from my offspring of 3CoWZ and F0XeD, this is their codes, however i left it up to them(I own Son Of Golden Cow And Fox and the parents) to name. And they named accordingly!!! LOVE IT! and then bred that dragon to a dragon with a wolf name.

Here's one!

 

I had a dragon that was given to me by Mystic_Halo, and the parents of it were called...

 

Christmas Lyric and Gilded Lyric.

 

So I decided to call it Flaming Lyric.

I often name after the parents, quite often because I am horrible at coming up with names and it is less work smile.gif

 

I love it when people name my dragons after their parents, unless they use a name I wanted and I can't figure out why it's not available biggrin.gif Even when that happens, I am still happy that they named it that way.

If the breeder of an egg I've caught has taken the time to come up with a lineage I try to go along and use the name, even if I don't plan on breeding my dragons to continue the lineage.

 

This one for example: http://dragcave.net/lineage/VCp33 I couldn't help but play along.

Just saw this thread and I really need to show it to my daughter, Sunstar23! (She's at a friend's house working on a school project at the moment.) She often names her dragons based upon their lineage. A little sampling just from the first page of her scroll:

http://dragcave.net/lineage/eHkT1 and her daughter http://dragcave.net/lineage/Hu2Eg

http://dragcave.net/lineage/oXnbj

http://dragcave.net/lineage/RpAa2 and her son http://dragcave.net/lineage/WrIdM

http://dragcave.net/lineage/SP1lQ

http://dragcave.net/lineage/OsoQd

http://dragcave.net/lineage/VdcCe

http://dragcave.net/lineage/8FG7I

http://dragcave.net/lineage/kZO4d

 

And I had better stop before she becomes angry with me for posting her dragons in a thread that she would eventually like to post in when given permission. tongue.gif

I thought the parents had decent names, so name their offspring I did.

Not quite naming after parents.

I like playing around with the parent's names, as a sign of gratitude towards the breeder and also to help me remember what lineage they are from, or just because I like the names.

 

http://dragcave.net/lineage/2Rzmx named after the father

http://dragcave.net/lineage/mstXt this one reminds me that the parents are cold (Ice) and hot (Magma)

http://dragcave.net/lineage/nUS79 mix of the parents' names

http://dragcave.net/lineage/VL8FS mix of the parents' names

http://dragcave.net/lineage/NR4hU mix of the parents' names and also reminds me of the mother's species

 

And I name after Thuwed, Dusk and Dorkface and I also have a number of eggs bred by someone who named all their dragons "Tofucake", which I continued whenever I noticed it, but sadly the "original" Tofucakes lost their names now.

I often name my dragons after (one of) the parents because I'm not good at coming up with names myself. tongue.gif

I dropped an egg from a thunderthighs named "Tweasuwe Youw Wuv", and the user who picked it up named the hatchling "Skip to the End". Princess Bride FTW! Whoever you are, user, you're awesome. biggrin.gif

 

Edit: Dammit I forgot view -> lineage. Oh well.

I was breeding for a group project with the suffix of "of the Lake", and kept abandoning the eggs that weren't the breed I was aiming for. Someone snagged one of those eggs and named it "The Lake Dried Up". I thought it was amusing, and I think it's cool when people look at a dragon's lineage and base the dragon's name off of its ancestors.

No, to be honest, I do not like it when people do this to offsprings of my dragons (with some exceptions of course): the problem is they often do it the wrong way. What makes me especially annoyed is when someone adds "CB" or "Zz" at the end of the name, assuming that's the lineage "theme" (while it is not, Zz is my personal addition I have on all the named dragons and CB simply marks that the dragon is CB). So a 7th gen Pillow named "___ CB Zz" on someone else's scroll is something I don't like seeing very much xd.png

 

But well, in general I usually do not care what people do with babies from my dragons, it's theirs and they have the right to do whatever they want with it (even kill/release/vamp, I don't mind unless they have promised me not to). So it only bugs me, in a way, when I actually start looking through the progenies out of curiosity.

 

I do find 2nd gen Prizes with such names pretty neat, though (I even have one like that, from Dawn's Silver Medal), but that's because the parents of those are "famous".

I name my CB Speckle-Throated dragons saying something and describing a child... For example:

http://dragcave.net/lineage/ae1dO

Someone named my two's offspring Speckles Child and i think that's cute

 

Kinda hurt that the little one doesn't like what it's breed :/

http://dragcave.net/lineage/gjbKQ

Kinda thought i was nice throwing that pretty little egg out there tongue.gif it's from not to long after the shimmers came out...
