Naming, after parents.

Recommended Posts

I went away for a couple of years, and of course all of my dragons lost their names in that time. I'm going through the process of renaming them all (and adding some code for me to make it easier for my own breeding projects) and I am very thankful when either parents or offspring have been named! I'm trying to incorporate parent names as much as I can, it makes thinking of names very easy and quick. wink.gif

 

Has TJ implemented a method to toss a small amount of money at him and prevent dragon names from being wiped? With my naming scheme I don't have anything rare or valuable, but I wouldn't mind saving hours of work if I wander off again.

Thanks again Taryn123!

I have a naming system set up that let's me know what I'm looking at by a glance, but it's so convoluted that I'm not surprised to see so few people naming offspring after my pairings.

 

Though, whoever named my Tidal's offspring "Lengweir" gets my love forever for the most creative combining of my dragons' names yet.

 

Personally, I try to name mine after their parents while sticking to my system. There are occassional exceptions, though. Electroneutrality will always be one of my favorite babies. I'll set a mate up for her someday, somehow.

 

And Forever Friendzoned, something I can probably never breed in good conscience but love nonetheless. The name feels appropriate for that reason, as well as all the Valentines in there.

 

I also have these two

I especially love lineages that read like that Tsunami's

I do this with AP dragons. Of course, sometimes the parents don't have names, so if the grandparents are named, I'll make up names for the parents in order to make names for my dragons. For example, Pink Boring Name actually goes back to its great-grandparents in this manner.

 

And yes, I'm also thrilled when people name the offspring of my dragons after their parents, especially if it's in my personal lineage.

I don't do it all the time, but I have a Nebula/Royal Blue pair that their children have names based on theirs. the Nebula, Kuroi Stars, and the Royal Blue, Kotei Crown, have a Nebula son , Kuroi Crown, and a Royal Blue daughter, though I changed her name since I felt that Kotei Stars didn't really fit her.

I have no naming system whatsoever, so I name my dragons based on (in order of priority) their parents' names, their code, or whatever comes to mind. C: If I may show off a bit, Angel of Judgment is the best one to come from this as of late, although I've also got a Shyamal(an) and a vagrant varg~

 

Haven't gotten around to breeding anything myself, but if I do, I'd love to see people doing this with the eggs they pick up!

I try to do that as often as possible when I catch someone's offspring from named parents - if not, sometimes I go a little further back in the line. It makes it fun to carry on some things from the past, and helps me figure out names for all my little dragons. Yeah. I like having them all named. It's a thing with me. happy.gif

I always try to give my dragons a last name of the sort of last name their father had. I also try to follow the naming pattern in the lineage someone has, like that weird sentence lineage.

I try to name hatchlings after their parents as much as possible. Might change language on words, though.

 

Every adult of the diffirent dragonraces has their own familyname (my earthdragons are all named Midgard-son/dottir, for example). smile.gif

This marks the first time ever I've had someone name a parent after my offspring.

I got a nice little Solstice off the AP with a Spitfire father. I usually name Holiday dragons after their progenitors, but the mother's name is Z'ebii and the father didn't have a name.

 

I named my CB Solstices Dasher Dancer Prancer Vixen and Comet Cupid Donder Blitzen so I just chose another reindeer name for this hatchling, You Know Dasher, the first lyric of Rudolph the Red Nosed Reindeer.

 

She's not even grown yet and her parents' owner named the Spitfire daddy Desert Dune Dasher.

 

Thanks, draketeeth! That's awesome and if you're out there, I hope you know it's appreciated. biggrin.gif

I barely ever do that, but sometimes when I have no ideas of mine I combine the parent's names and get one for my baby. Two examples:

 

http://dragcave.net/lineage/1JJgk - gave him their last name. tongue.gif

 

http://dragcave.net/lineage/KsuGV - name+name smile.gif

 

But when someone else does these things of course I'm really touched. wub.gif

 

http://dragcave.net/lineage/4LKCb - this little guy was bred in hope that it will be an alt and later got gifted to a very lovely person on here. I love its name now. wub.gif

If the parents have cool names, I love naming the kids after them. Like most of my Autumn dragons, a lot of them are named after their parents. Also:

As for the children of dragons I've bred… well, I just count myself lucky if they even get names. Though I have one pair whose kids are both vampires. Go figure.

Could anyone give me some ideas about how to name this dragon (and the copper mate) in order to be consistent with the lineage?

I love it when I look through my dragon's offspring and see that those who caught/received them name them after the parents. It gives me a warm feeling and puts me in a good mood.

 

I also love to name dragons after their parents whenever I can think of something clever enough.

 

for example, a while back I caught this and decided to keep it. http://dragcave.net/lineage/GlfkX

 

Also one of my most recent treasures which was kindly gifted to me. http://dragcave.net/lineage/H8nur I tried to incorporate the personalities of both dragons, considering one of them likes to mess with the minds of others.

Okay, it's not naming after parents in the traditional sense, but HOLY censorkip.gif LOOK AT THIS VAMPIRE I LOVE YOU WHOEVER OWNS MY BABY NOW

 

https://dragcave.net/view/QKoXv

 

Look at his name and then look at the Vamp who bit him. This was a baby I bit (I have both his parents too) but it auto-APed, I'm so happy whoever owns him now was so clever in naming him after his vampire-sire~
