Black Dragon Name Inspiration

Finding inspiration for a black dragon name can be easy or hard, depending on what you’re looking for. If you want a more traditional name, you can usually find lists of dragon names in mythology or folklore.

If you want a more modern and creative name, then you might want to look at some of your favorite books, movies, or video games for ideas.

For example, one black dragon in Game of Thrones is named Drogon. Other great black dragon monikers could include Bane, Smaug, or Morgrim.

Tips for Choosing the Perfect Name for a Black Dragon

When it comes to picking a name for your black dragon, there are a few things you should keep in mind.

Here are a few tips:

  1. Consider the dragon’s personality. What kind of name would fit its personality? For example, if your dragon is fierce and intimidating, you might want to choose a name that reflects that, such as “Fury” or “Vengeance”.
  2. Consider its appearance. Does your dragon have jet black scales? If so, consider names like “Nightmare” or “Sinister”. However, if your dragon has other colors mixed in with its black scales, you might want to choose a more general name like “Raven” or “Ebony”.
  3. Consider the meaning of the name. When choosing a name for your dragon, make sure you pick one with a meaning that suits it. For example, if you have a benevolent dragon named “Hope”, it would be fitting because it has a hopeful connotation. However, if you have an evil dragon named “Death”, the name would be quite ominous and fit well.
  4. Have fun with it! Ultimately, when it comes to picking a name for your black dragon, it should be something you enjoy and feel fits well. So don’t be afraid to get creative and have some fun with it!

Conclusion

No matter the reason you are looking for black dragon monikers, I hope this extensive list will help you in naming the one you’ve created. You are sure to find something in the above lists for your book, screenplay, or artwork. I tried to include a little something for everyone, as each dragon is different but equally as awesome!
