Dragon Name Contest #2

January 4, 2015

It's time to kick off the new year with a contest! For anyone who didn't get to participate the first time around, the dragon name contest is back. Your task is to create a dragon name of your own and write a short Word Wall dedicated to your dragon. Be sure to take a look at the previous winners!

Winning entries will be featured in a collection here in the Library. You don’t need to be a member to enter, but if you are there’s a ​ 120 gold prize for the top 3 entries.

Here's one of the winning entries from the previous dragon name contest for example:

Foduiiz

“Frost Devour Ice”

Faal sahrot Foduiiz
drun zomaar iizstrun
amiv joor junaar
rok drey du.

The mighty Foduiiz
brought a terrifying blizzard
unto a mortal kingdom
which he did devour.

Contest Entry Guidelines

Names should consist of 2-3 words in the dragon language and be no more than 3 syllables in length. Entries with dragon names that are longer than 3 syllables are unlikely to be considered! Read the Dragon Names & Shouts lesson for more guidelines and ideas regarding dragon names. 

Word Walls should be roughly between 10-30 words in length, or approximately 2-4 lines. As shown in the example above, Word Walls tend to be very brief and like to rely on context clues for full meaning. Submit text only – you’re more than welcome to make your own graphics or images based on your dragon or Word Wall if you’d like, but images are not a part of this contest and will not be used in the results.

Entries do not need to be canon-only. You can use any word from the expanded dictionary for your entry. If you participated in the previous contest, you are more than welcome to enter again with a new entry.

You can send your entry in a private message to paarthurnax or send it in the body of an email to [email protected] with the subject line: Dragon Name Contest. In this email, please provide:

  • The name of your dragon
  • The meaning of your dragon's name
  • A Word Wall for your dragon written in Dovahzul
  • A translation of the Word Wall
  • The name, pen name, username, or blog url you would like attributed to your entry

The contest will be open for entries until Friday, January 23rd. Pruzah pel, good luck!
