How to Create Your Own Purple Dragon Name
Creating a dragon name can be a fun and creative process! Let your creativity soar, and use whatever method works best for you.
Keep these tips in mind when creating your own unique and imaginative purple dragon name:
- Decide on or identify the dragon’s personality. Think about your purple dragon’s personality traits and characteristics. Is it strong and powerful? Wise and elderly? A total jokester? Once you understand its nature, you can create a name to match.
- Take inspiration from its physical appearance. Consider using descriptive words in your dragon’s name. For example, if your dragon has shimmery scales, you might use “Iridesca” or “Glimmer” as part of its name.
- Take inspiration from foreign languages. Look up relevant words (like “dragon,” “fire-breathing,” and “purple”) in ancient or foreign languages to find ideas for interesting names that aren’t as commonly used. For example, “purple” is translated to “Murasaki” in Japanese, and “Ice Dragon” translates in Danish to “Isdrage.”
