Mini Naming Contest by Springfeather Mini Naming Contest by Springfeather
EDIT: A, B, C, and D now have names, thanks!

Hey you guys! These are some of my dragon characters, I just have one little problem...none of them have names!!!

CONTEST: Come up with names for my dragons! You can enter as many times as you want.
DEADLINE: When they all have names.
PRIZES: For every suggested name I choose to use, the winner gets a free digital or traditional headshot commission of one of their characters!

These dragons are my babies, so I'll tell you now that I'm going to be really really picky about their names, but feel free to try! I'm looking for creative, unusual names. Things like "Bob" or "John" won't cut it. Names can be historically significant(like mythology) or completely original!

Now I'll tell you a little about each of them and potential preferences:
A few general notes:
1. They don't all exist in the same universe, only A and C definitely live in the same world- E may also live there too.
2. Human age refers to the character's maturity equivalent to a person. They all age at different rates. On average, their aging appearace/maturity equivalence slows as they reach their late teens. Like Character C, they may remain in their 20's for centuries.

Name: Vaeme
Gender: Male
Human Age: 14
Job: Volcano Guardian
History: Both of his parents perished in a volcanic eruption just a few years ago. He watched their final moments in horror before being blinded by a burst of lava flying in his face. Disoriented and in pain, he ran frantically down the mountain and narrowly escaped death. When the volcano calmed down, he returned, only to find the shredded and burnt remains of his mother's wings. Morbid as it may seem, he wears them around his shoulders like a scarf to always have a piece of them beside him.
Pesonality: Cronically depressed. He spends most of his days moping around the edge of the volcano, feeling for vibrations that may indicate a dangerous eruption. He is very cynical and cold to any visitors that may find themselves on the mountain. He gets very snappy if someone approaches him quietly, because he can't see them.
(BTW, He's Phillip's distant cousin)

Name: Eta
Gender: Female
Human Age: 21
Job: Guardian of Hedgehogs???
Personality: She's very outgoing and kind, but too overzealous for most people to handle. Her passion is hedgehogs, because they look prickly on the outside but are really quite sweet on the inside, like her!

Name: Phillip
Gender: Male
Human Age: 25
Job: Forest Guardian
Powers: He has the ability to create illusions and even change into a human-not that it would be his first choice to appear as the enemy.
History: He's lived in his forest for a few centuries now, watching over the animals and warding off humans. The jungle he protects is virtually untouched by human hands, because he always finds ways to divert them. Spreading scary rumors helps too C:
Personality: After seeing all of the damage humans have done to sister forests, he has become very wary and suspicious of any intruders. To the animals that live there, he is always helpful and wise, gaining widespread respect over many generations.
(He is Vaeme's distant cousin)

Name: Spectral
Gender: Male
Human Age: 21
Job: Aerial Fighting Specialist
History: Born as a pretty basic dragon to a low class family, he showed off his speedy, high-flying skills to some sildiers as a child and was immediately admitted to the Grand Flying Academy. Now he is high ranking soldier in the military, but not an officer.
Personality: Strong of heart and full of courage, he boldly stands up for what he believes is right at all times. (Obvioiusly, this will eventually come into conflict with his occupation and he will have to choose to do what is right or to obey orders.) He is secretly insecure about his vulnerabilities-he is almost defenseless without his armour and hardly ever takes it off, even when sleeping.

Character E
Gender: Male
Human Age: ???
Job: Sea Guardian (Somewhere like the Mediterranean Sea)
Personality: He jokes with his aqautic friends all day long and has a habit of playing innocent pranks. He is carefree as a child on most days, rarely serious enough to protect his domain. This has gotten him into serious trouble at times, for when he is not paying attention, fishermen on the outskirts of his territory catch and slaughter the creatures he is tasked with protecting. He tries to forget the terrible things that have happened to some of his old friends as a result, and fears the night, because at night, he can't hide from all of those bad memories and monsterous nightmares that haunt his sleep. Only during the day can he party away all of his rational thoughts.

Character F
Gender: Male
Age: 16
Type: Undead Dragon
History: He was a human before certain circumstances lead to his untimely demise and reincarnation as this dragon in Animal Asylum.
Personality: Cynical, witty, and funny at the best of times. He is very cautious and reserved, finding it very hard to reveal his true feeling to anyone, due to all of the trauma and lies in his past.
(This character actually has quite a past;3 Thing is, he isn't really mine. The design is based off of a character from something else...If you can use this little bit of information and his appearace to figure out who he really is, your efforts will not go unrewarded. Unless you have experience the media he is from, guessing is near impossible. So, if you do figure it out, I hope you can tell me some stuff about him~ Considering all of this, naming him wil be especially hard.)

To enter, write the letter of the character with your name suggestions in the comments. I may not reply to all of these comments. I will most likely only reply to the winners-if anyone ever wins.

A: veiwsonic2 with Vaeme
B: tamingofthesandshrew with Eta
C: To-beloved with Phillip
D: To-beloved with Spectron (changed to Spectral)

I'm still debating over some of the other ones, but I really love the name Eta! So much that I think I'll use it:3 Thank you!

Just send me in a comment or note which of your characters you would like to use for the headshot prize!
tamingofthesandshrew Featured By Owner Jun 20, 2013  Hobbyist Digital Artist
mmm, what kind of characters do you draw besides dragons?
I have cat characters, My Little Pony characters, humans. a couple of little weird creatures.
Springfeather Featured By Owner Jun 20, 2013  Hobbyist General Artist
I mostly draw wolves and cats. I sometimes draw MLP, but not enough to say I'm good at it. Humans are ehh, no so great. And I can generally work with weird creatures:3
