Naming dragons in general is pretty fun, but fire dragons in particular, whether they’re merely fire-breathing or completely red and fire themed overall, are probably the most fun to come up with names for.
There are a ton of ways you can go about looking for a good name for a fire dragon. Many of these are obvious techniques, but can yield some pretty epic sounding names that are uncommonly used.
Some of my favourites?
Using ancient mythological gods and goddesses’ names – ones that have to do with fire.
Yes, there are the common fire gods and goddesses like “Hephaestus,” “Hestia,” and “Ra” you could name a fire dragon after, but there are also lesser known fire gods that have epic names, like “Jagaubis” and “Vulcan,” or for female goddesses, “Oya” and “Turgmam.”
I like these a lot, especially the idea of researching the stories behind these fire gods/goddesses names to see if there are character traits, or even physical traits, you can embed into a fire dragon’s persona.
Using names that themselves have “fire” as part of their meaning is also an obvious technique that yields some pretty fascinating names.
“Enya,” “Ayden,” “Blaise,” “Tyson,” and “Bridget” are likely fire-meaning names that you’ve heard of before, but how about “Fiamma”, “Alinta,” “Hagan,” and “Conleth” – these are all super fascinating names I’ve never seen used before.
There are also plenty of words you can use that are synonyms with the word “fire” that make for good names. Some of my favourites are “Pyre” and “Scorch,” though there are plenty others.
