Dragon-A-Day Online: Day 470: The Name Game Round 2.

While musing on a comment from last night’s post, abut possible solutions for the knotty problem of naming conventions, I came up with this. It’s not as elegant asĀ  I might like, nor are the pair of them as similar-but-different as I wanted them to be, but it’s late and admittedly rushed:

“The first was Akat, his mate Takta. Therefore we are Akatim and Takti, as well as dragons, the same way you are men and women, but still humans.”

    Oh, what about… additive naming conventions? That is– make Akat & Takta really iconic (one with flight, one with a breath weapon?) but have their names, & lesser names, accrete? So a winged fire-breather would be Akatimtakti…blah blah blah? Or, okay, let me give another placeholder example– uh, lets say (going with DnD paradigm again) that Morda was the first dragon who used magic, & um…Wir was the first dragon to shapeshift. So, a shapeshifting, non-flying, fire-breathing dragon would be Akatiwir; a shapeshifting, flying, non-fire-breathing dragon would be Tatkiwir, a non-flying, non-firebreathing, magic-using shapeshifter would be Mordiwir, etc.
