How To Name Your Dragon

There are a few places on an Army Card to get across a custom's "character" -- which general? What personality? What class? Coming up with a great name for your custom is one of them.

So, where do you find good names? I've found a few sources that I thought I'd share:

Any other sources you all use?

Re: How To Name Your Dragon

Very helpful. Mine are usually anagrams or just gibberish that fetches very few Google Search results. Thanks for posting this!

I think this is going to be useful for me. :P

But isn't Bob short for "Big Owl Bear"?

Re: How To Name Your Dragon

Thanks! Now I can stop using random gibberish or overused, modern-sounding names in my D&D campaigns! All elves will now be named by the color of their skin.

Oops, rolled a 1.

Re: How To Name Your Dragon

I've always used 20000 Names when I'm looking for something that has some meaning. It has different sections with more of a fantasy focus to it. I've definitely used it for D&D and I'm pretty sure I've prowled it for some of my different custom designs. I'll have to check out these other links the next time I'm needing a name.
