I am obsessed and I mean obsessed with Norse Mythology, and also dragons, I would like to name my son to be something that exemplifies both of those things so I'm seriously considering naming my son Nidhogg. I know it's an unusual name but it is name nonetheless used in Germany and I just wanted to get /adv/'s feedback on it or if /adv/ has any better names that shout Norse/Germanic mythology and dragons?
Your son is not, like, your fucking Tumblr page. He's not a human bulletin board to advertise your personal interests. There's no guarantee that he will share your personal interests. Get yourself a dog and name it whatever you want, but when you're naming your fucking child, you should really be thinking about his future, and your OWN family heritage. Not your personal hobby.
No. It sounds cool to YOU. Because this is the shit YOU'RE into. Not your son. Not all the assholes your son will meet in school. Not all the assholes who will interview your son for jobs and shit.
Change your own name, or get a dog and name it Nidhogg the Dog. Don't do this shit to your kid.
So, are you even in a relationship? If not, this may be a little early to be picking out baby names.
If you are pregnant/ have impregnated someone, then what does she (he?) think?
Also I like the names Sigmund and Sigfried. At least there are famous popular culture icons by those names so people are generally familiar with them already.
just what in the fuck is wrong with you?
why not name him a real, modern-day name of Germanic origin?
if you care about your child, you will not do this to him
It may not be a dragon but fenris is a bad ass name
I knew an edgy guy (in Sweden) who had the name Birk. I don't know if that was an issue for him or it being a single parent household. But he hasn't left me with good impressions exactly. It's an unusual name and some might have picked on him for it. But there's no rude jokes to be made.
>Don't Nidhogg sound cool though?
If by "cool" you mean "my son's bullies will be using squeal-like-a-pig jokes until he turns 18", then yes, I guess it sounds cool from a certain point of view. Probably not the one you were hoping for, though.
Norse mythology is awesome. I'm in a group that sings about it a lot, so I know how you feel. But don't foist your obsessions upon your son, however awesome they may be. Name him Drake if you must -George and Arthur also have draconic connections- but don't use names from cultures that neither you nor he hail from.
Fuck you, you dumb American piece of shit. Your son will go through life being ridiculed, made fun of, beat up and ostracized. Name him something normal and not something that is in Lord of the Rings, god damn autist. People like you should be barred from having children because of how dumb you are.
>Nobody in Germany is called Nidhogg, give it up
A character in the movie aliens is named that.
You could name your child something like William
and then use Nidhogg as a middle name if you must. That way, you feel satisfied without absolutely ruining his early life. by age 20, it'll be something interesting and possibly weirdly endearing in the moment it's brought up and forgotten right after
>not naming your son after based chinese mythology and rotk
>not giving your son a style name when he becomes an adult
>not appealing to your eventual chinese overlords with your enthusiasm in their history and folklore
GET A LOAD OF THIS PLEB
Norse fad was over the minute people realized that the nordic people are largely pussy pushover princess cuckolds who are also autistic to the point where their women are screaming in the streets for black cock and the men can do nothing about it.
The real fad is here, with god tier China, who at least nowadays is more cutthroat capitalist than America (to the detriment of their citizens even)
if you aren't capitulating to glorious Zhongguo you may as well tell your kid to rent a cuckshed from the swedes because that's his life from now on.
As a German I can tell you that 100% noone in Germany would call their child Nidhogg. Even here you can get punched in your face for having that name, duh.
I'm so done with your pretentious American shit.
How about you name him something that will actually help him in life?
Its like black people who name their kids "Heaven" or "Classi"
Then they wonder why they never get a job interview and get off the first rung of the socioeconomic ladder.
Please OP give him a normal name. Your child isn't a toy to do with as you please, it's a human being who will face consequences for the decisions you've made for it. Don't be selfish, having a child isn't about you and your kid is going to be brutally tormented by his fellows with a faggy name. Brutally.
>guy with a shit name
Germanfag here. Don't give your child that name. Stick to German names. Like Leif, Erik, maybe Siegfried (there you even have some relation to dragons) or Sören (for unusual umlauts to make his life easier in USA or GB :-)
I don't think so. No Nidhogg listet in the Berlin phonebook. Pic related.
