Drem yol lok! First post!

My full IRL name is:
Travis David Whalen

Those names mean:
(At) the Crossroads, Blessed, Little Wolf.

So far ive come up with Wundun(Travel), Kogaan(Blessing), Malgrohiik(Little Wolf).

The word I am having most trouble with is Wundun in place for Travis. Comes from Traverser, meaning "to cross". Typically at a crossroads or bridge.

Thanks!

Well that's a big name, considering that Dragon names are usually three part names you'd probably need to compress it to three short words. Also all the names are shouts par excellence and this also means a need for more defined general concepts.
Yours boil do2n to "cross bless wolf"

Thanks for the reply! Do you know the word for cross? and bless? I know blessing.

EDIT: Hok is cross?
My first two names could be swapped for a better/easier sound.
Hokkoggrohiik
or
Koghokgrohiik ?

If you wanted to you could name yourself for your personality rather than directly translating the meaning of your irl name. I've never seen the word hok so I have no idea what source the other person is using.

You could also translate just your first or last name. Malgrohiik is nice. For "crossroads" you could do something like "Umkrehmiir" which translates as "twin bent path" or "Miirumaav" "path twin joined"

Thanks! I am wondering though, are these 100% canon words or created by the community?

EDIT: Nevermind, found the sources myself. Thanks again!
