Help: where to find the thread with dragon names ...th
 
I have tried to search for the thread where we all put dragon names, and I cannot find it.

Can you help?

I am going to name a jewelery dragon and thought that I would give it a real dragon name ending with ...th so I came here to seek inspiration :)

It seems all the more fitting with Anne's passing :(

Hi Nina, nice to see you checking in!

I don't recall there being a thread of dragon names. At least not a general one, there have been times when people have had a stuffed animal or lizard to name and sought suggestions, but I don't think that's what you're looking for.

Are you looking for fan-made names or names from the books?

Thank you, Cheryl :D

I remember a thread where everyone put in suggestions to what they would call their dragon, if they had one. It might be connected to a stuffed animal or an exhibition dragon or a mixture of book names and forum member given ones or even to a questionnaire as to which dragon you would fly. I only remember that there were such good suggestions that I wanted to return and be inspired :)

I have tried to search Exhibition and Dragon books, but nothing seems to turn up, and I was hoping someone would remember the connection.

If you type in dragon names in the search engine (next to quick links in the menu bar), it comes up with a list of threads. Maybe one of these is what you are looking for, Nina. I vaguely recall something along the lines that you are suggesting about but unable to recall which thread it was in. Hence why I suggested typing in dragon names and see what happens.
