Default Dragon names ending with ...TH

I was searching for a Pern style name for my small jewelery dragon and did a lot of searches on here to help me recall and get inspiration.

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 jewelery friends

Christh
Dnath
Freyth (McCafFREY - in honour of Anne)
Gusth
Jacth
Jewlth
Lanath
Lieth
Nath
Senth

Which one seems best do you think?

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."

Do you have a picture/description of the item in question? I love naming Pern dragons for my fanfics, but it helps to have an idea of what they look like. The number of possibilities is infinite... help narrow it down a bit?

A picture will appear here as soon as I get my dragon in hand and it tells me its name



Right now the dragon is being made. It is a unique lock for a bracelet being made on another forum that I am a member of, and I am not supposed to share the photos there of the unfinished dragon. However, it is going to be the first of a new line of beads to put on a bracelet.

Mine is going to be a silver dragon with green diamond eyes.

I am really exited as the dragon is quite close to some of the dragon drawings that I have seen on here, and I have brought up naming each person's dragon Pernese style, and thus making some people curious about reading Anne's books

I think that I have begun a search of dragon names in general too

I will be back within the next month or so - this is so
