My sister just had a child and they have yet to name him. Oddly he has a dragon shaped birthmark on his upper right shoulder blade, which looks pretty cool.

My sister wants to name him something that sounds Dragon-esque, but everything she has said sounds stupid.

Do you have any dragon inspired or dragon-esque names /adv/?

Drake

It can double as a normie name so he won't get bullied
>>
>>16751646
I personally like my suggestion of Nidhogg better, and Barney was a dinosaur not a dragon, a snake, serpent, or dragon name are more acceptable.
>>
>>16751719
A kid wouldn't get bullied if his name was Nidhogg. People would assume him to be alpha and get out of his way, he would automatically be the prom king just with that name. They would make him quarterback.
>>
>>16751729
Nidhogg is the ugliest name I have ever seen. Not only does it look ugly spelled out, it also sounds incredibly stupid when spoken.

It sounds like an alien or ogre name, it doesn't sound dragonesque at all

It's a Norse name derived from a norse dragon called the Niddhog.

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/N%C3%AD%C3%B0h%C3%B6ggr

>In Norse mythology, Níðhöggr (Malice Striker, often anglicized Nidhogg[1]) is a dragon who gnaws at a root of the world tree, Yggdrasil. In historical Viking society, níð was a term for a social stigma implying the loss of honor and the status of a villain. Thus, its name might refer to its role as a horrific monster or in its action of chewing the corpses of the inhabitants of Náströnd: those guilty of murder, adultery, and oath-breaking, which Norse society considered among the worst possible crimes.

>In the standardized Old Norse orthography, the name is spelled Níðhǫggr or Niðhǫggr, but the letter 'ǫ' is frequently replaced with the Modern Icelandic 'ö' for reasons of familiarity or technical expediency.
The name can be represented in English texts as Nidhogg, Nidhoggr, Nithhogg, Nidhögg, Nidhöggr, Nithhöggr, Nídhöggr, Nithhoggr, Nidhhogg, Níðhögg, Niðhoggr, Níðhoggr, Nídhögg, Hidhaegg, or Nidhhoggr. The Modern Icelandic forms Níðhöggur and Niðhöggur are also sometimes seen and anglicized as Nidhoggur. The Danish form Nidhug or "Nidhog" can also be encountered, as well as the term "Livamyyo".

Make Draco his official name and nickname him Drake

>only correct answer
>>
>>16751752

Agree'd.

It's not just a name... he needs a title.

That birthmark was there for a reason - he's the chosen one.

Actually, why not just name him "chosen one"?
>>
>>16751729
>A kid wouldn't get bullied if his name was Nidhogg
Um, yes, yes he would. I'm thinking lots of pig imagery.
>>
Your sister watches too many cartoons.
>>
George. Like the saint. Easy dragon connection, while still being plausible as a name. Arthur also works for this, and Drake is good too.

No Nidhogg. It wasn't used as a name even by the culture that produced it.
>>
>>16751789
The little kids will know at his school how exactly?
>>
>>16751613

Drake
>>
Tim, short for Tiamat.

Congratulations of having a dragonborn in your family, new times are awakening *cough*
>>
In the world of D&D, Garyx and Chronepsis is two of the dragon deities. Garyx of fire, and Chronepsis of... um... Justice, among other things (hehe)

So, Gary or Ron, perhaps?
>>
>>16752012
But it's a powerful mythological fucking creature!
>>
>>16752065
>Tiamat
Interesting name. Just one problem: Tiamat's female.
>>
>>16752048
The teacher should have a lesson of the day where she educates them on the origin of Nidhogg, wtf else is a teacher for but to teach?
>>
>>16752097

Oh, are all the five heads female? My bad.
>>
Nico, after Nicol Bolas
>>
>>16752108
No, but all of her genitals are. She was a Babylonian goddess, dude.
>>
>>16752043
>No Nidhogg. It wasn't used as a name even by the culture that produced it.

Yes it is, I knew this kid who was straight out of Germany in college and his name was Nidhogg Boris Auttenberg. No one made fun of him but he kind of kept to himself.
>>
Khellen or Khalen, after Khellendros, the badass blue dragon.
>>
>>16752114
The suggestion was to shorten it to Tim. Since a lot of names has an opposite sex variant, I don't see the problem with Tim being named after Tiamat, in the same way Thora or Thorild is named after a certain thundergod.
>>
>>16751613
Call him Dhovakin.

Eragon? Like from that book, doesn't sound too autismo
>>
Drake if in you live in a western country.
Drago if you live in a slavic country.
Draco if you live in Harry Potter Land.
>>
>>16751613
>My sister wants to name him something that sounds Dragon-esque

We need to take a cue from Iceland and have a list of approved names. Special snowflake names will only guarantee your kid's school years are a living hell.
>>
>>16752102
Do you honestly think public schools teach nordic mythology?
>>
>>16751613
Drago or Dragomir.
Drago is Italian for dragon.
Dragomir is Slavic for "lover of peace".
>>
How about you give the kid an actual name instead of something that will get him bullied?
>>
>>16753194
That sounds super autismo, and speaking of which,
>>16752886
It's Dovahkiin you dyslexic slut

>>16753232

The dragonborn is able to protect himself from bullies.

There is literally 0 reason to not call him Drake
>>
>>16753335
I think we can all agree that naming your kid after a dragon-shaped birthmark is inherently autistic. However, Drake is probably the least autistic choice of all possibilities
>>
>>16751613
Name him fucking George after saint George. There, dragon related and not a fucking special snowflake autism name
>>
>>16753335
Either Drake or Arthur(as in King Arthur Pendragon) are the only normal choices.

I am fed up with people throwing out autism everywhere just because they personally find it lame. SONIC IS COOL AHHH!

That's a pretty cool namne. It reminds me of Augustus and it's unique. I might name my son Autismo.

Briac (bry-eck)

>>16751613
How about name him after that dragon from Mulan or that Dragon from Fern Gully?
