Default 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

The Rowan is my favourite!

"The name rowan is believed to derive from the Norse runa - "a charm". It was often planted outside houses to ward off witches. On May Day a spray of rowan leaves was hung over doors to repel evil, and wells dressed with rowan to keep witches away. The rowan, or mountain ash, is found commonly in Scotland, sometimes clinging to a rock face."

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

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.

I did find an old thread where Lady Maelin wanted a name for her dragon.

Here are the results:
Arteth
Christmath
Christmeth
Eireth (Anne lives)
Garth
Gifth
Glitteth
hollyeth
Meetomith
marlindeth
Momth
Jewlth
Spelth
Verdeth
Verdith (green)
helvath
Anneth

Ruth
Sagareth
Christmith
Hollyath
Maeth
Zaranth
Plinth
Edith

Someone added famous dragon names - not Pern style:
Guivre
Jormungander
Fafnir
Tiamat
Piasa
Quetzalcoatl
Tarasque
Peluda

Then some Pern dragon names - the must be a list of those somewhere:
Alaranth
Amaranth
Anareth
Arith
Branth
Faranth
Firth
Hallath
Hogarth
Lioth
Mnementh
Monarth
Prideth
Ramoth
Seventh
Solth
Voith

Maybe this is the list of Pern's dragon names:

A dragon name generator:

Another dragon name generator giving Pern style names:

Now I am ready to find names for my small friends
