    What to name smol dragon girl?

    Discussion in 'Character Development' started by Fervidor, May 4, 2021.

    I've suffered a bit of writer's block for a while now. Hoping to shake it off, I'm considering trying to write a children's fantasy story - sort of in the vein of Winnie-the-Pooh, I guess - that I thought of the moment I woke up this morning.

    So I want my main character will be a small female dragon, pretty human-like in behavior, who moves into an old ruin in some fairy tale forest and starts getting to know the locals. Currently trying to think of a name for her. Things usually start to fall into place after that.

    I'd rather not just make something up this time, and would prefer a name that is meaningful, not too long, easy to remember and suits a young dragon. I've considered maybe a word in Latin or something like that, but I haven't found anything much so far. If you guys have any suggestions, I'd be happy to hear them.

    It's also a Swedish verb that roughly means: "to have a fire burning."

    You'd think that would make a good name, but it actually sounds kinda odd.

    Also a proper girl's name around here. (Short form of Sophia.) Though I actually haven't encountered it for some time so it must have dropped in popularity over most of my adulthood.

    See, I like that, but it doesn't translate well into Swedish.

    I think that if I went with that, things might get complicated what with the inherent implications. ^^;
