Naming, after parents.

Recommended Posts

Aww, yes - often it makes me very happy.

I don't have any pattern which is universal for my scroll the way it is for some people, but sometimes I think of a pattern for a certain breed and it makes me happy when someone continues the pattern. That, or implements the parents' names in some way.

 

These are some that made me smile:

These all come from the same parents: wub.gif

I also raelly liked how the owner of the parents used the grandparents for the name, and so I named her after them smile.gif

And then there's this one - I first saw this dragon:

Then, I noticed that the dragon had offspring as well, and decided to look into it (with the help of a poke of the dragon's owner in the names thread):

Despite what I said earlier, I have looked through some progenies, and now I can proudly name one of those "exceptions" I love a lot.

 

I have to say that THIS (I own Glasklar)...

http://dragcave.net/lineage/tBO9B: I had to. (The father is so great; I love his description. Go herk!)

OMG that is a great description! Dimar and I, we love herk so much...

 

I love naming after parents. Here are some of mine that I named after their parents:

Tricorn Hats Kirjava

Purity Whitefeather Kirjava Kirjava FTW!

Celestial Grey Thuwed - do you think I should add 'Gosland' as well, or would three surnames be overkill?

Tenebrisphobia

Sungold ZaN

Ridgewing Wubbo

Ball Of Woe

Crystal Illumina - I ended up creating an entire family of Illumina Blunas from this, including PyCees Illumina who is the mate of one of my Illuminas and is named after his PyCees parents tongue.gif

Riverbird Melody

Spark de Devildom

Silvertounge Flameheart

Tiny Kuro - named after her parents, she has special significance to me because she reminds me of my darling Kurow... #fangirl

Noire Avril and Noir Kamill

Wow, I certainly name a lot of dragons after parents!

As an aside, I name some Tinselkins after their CB Tinsel ancestors: Golden Sunlight Of Epicness, Epic Gold Rarity, Booo I'm Not A Silver Tinsel, Apollo's White Messenger.

I always try to name after the parents. I wish more people did. ;.; I name all of my dragons and it makes me sad to see C4Rfg and s3HL5 in my offspring list. ;.;

Went through my scroll for the obvious, there might be more, no idea who owns most of the parents.

 

Very proud of this: 2 Gen Ember

 

I also own the parents(not GP) of this: Pretty Speckle-Throat

 

My beautiful Silver Male

 

Caught this beautiful 2 Gen Purebred Spring

 

This Magma was a gift.

 

Trying to continue this 3 Gen Ice's lineage, but only two whites so far.

I picked up a longer lineaged shimmer for a trade, despite having a shorter of the same one offered, because of the names. The shorter one had broken the cycle. And it's too cute, I <3 it!

 

So far, the people that have dragons from it are continuing the trend :3

I happened to be gifted this shimmer where every surname is Vincent. And all my tri hornes are named after female artists, mainly Impressionists. So I had to continue that convention in the offspring. I've been able to add 4 steps to the stair so far myself and love what the person named the most recent offspring.

I caught these in the AP recently and the lineages are so awesome that I had to name them appropriately:

The last one is my favorite--I love Monty Python! I just wish it had gendered male so I could've called it Brian. I know the first two are from the same breeder, and I think the third one is too. Whoever you are, breeder, thank you!

I named this silver I traded for after her parents. Not only is it an actual saying, it fits both parents quite well, imo. ^^ Double reference, yay. 8D

Omg! If you follow the lineage down from that dragon's parents, you can find this - the ENTIRE LYRICS of Always Look On The Bright Side! I'm afraid I haven't managed to watch any Monty Python at all yet but I am a would-be fan and adore that song tongue.gif I sooooo want an egg from that lineage...

I absolutely love it when people name my hatchlings after their parents wub.gif It's too adorable.

 

And even if they don't or name them something that I don't particularly fancy, I don't care in the slightest. It's their dragon lol.

 

These are a few of my favorite babies:

Just hatched this Split a while ago. Glucose and Sucrose was the first thing that came to mind when naming it. :I

Looking through some offspring of a dragon pair, I stumbled upon this! It made me extremely happy and I love the name.

The canopies all have 'luft' in their names which is German for 'air'. 'Luftkind' in german translates to "Airchild". x3

I thought this was pretty cute since they used both the grandmother and grandfather's names. It almost makes me want to rename the father too. <3

Really I'm using this as an excuse to show off the awesome dragon that Varekis gifted to me, but I thought I'd show my appreciation with this, the ultimate named-after-parents dragon. If it's female I might consider breeding it with a dragon called 'Never Mind Who The Hell Is That' and changing its name to 'Guy The Second X-Man'. Or switching those names around if it's male. Theme continuation FTW!

xd.png omg, im so glad my sister's lineage seems to be catching on! And yes, Amberfly, the Dumb Ways to Die was also hers. Glad to see them getting named appropiately.

 

Generally, I try to name random AP catches at least somewhat off their parents names, unless another name really speaks to me. (trying to think of some right now)
