Help with naming 2 beasts
« on: March 25, 2009, 12:45:40 PM »
Help with names

I’m heading to the airport to pick-up two Dogo Argentino monster champion-stock, original bloodline puppies today. For those not familiar with the beastly breed, please Google …
Need help with names. These are the types of dogs one can go crazy with, as far as naming…Thor, Attila, Herc, etc…

First we tried to let the 3 year old pick names, but Dora and Diego WILL NOT FLY with me!  :P

So, fellow strolenites, namers of monsters, creatures and beings not meant for man to pronounce…help me with some cool names.

Being considered:  Hulk, Tango (Argentine breed you see, and Tango dance originated there too), Sif (for the female, Norse goddess of swords), Ghost (they are snow-white you see, and have that aloof look)

Anyway, you get the picture. All suggestions will be considered. Thank you.

Triumph of the Dungeon Master!

Ah, how I have come to love that sense of accomplishment and victory that I get when I pull the wool over the eyes of a clever player character. What DM Triumphs have you had?

Some of mine:
1. Finally killing an incredibly powerful, lucky, annoying player's character.
2. Finally achieving a TPK (Total Party Kill)
3. Finally achieving a TPK using only traps
4. Finally working out how to make it so that d**n wizard doesn't steal the spotlight all the d**n time.

 Stick with Norse! Mjolnir, Yggdrasil, Niflheim, Aesir! Or you could have some fun: they're hounds after all, why not Tindalos? Cthulhu, Hastur, Yog-Sothoth (or Yoggy and Sothoth).

Drackler, lol, can you imagine?

Muro (in backyard): "Come Shib-Niggurath! To me, Yog-Sothoth!"
Neighbor (peeking thru blind): "Uhhh--honey, call the cops"

Then agian, Yoggy -n- Soth sounds kinda cool!  :up:

Dozus, Fantasma(o) going into final 10 list! Can't do Neve. Portuguese doesn't feel right (unless they were from Brazil)

Scras, lol, Gringo going into top 10 list! (wife loves it). Ms Whitey may pose problems in the big city  :P (especially if i have to call her to me, over a long distance in a particularly crummy neighborhood  :lol:)

Thanks guys! (more!!) They have arrived.

Since they're both ghost-white, Mist and Frosty sound like appropriate names.

Awwww... Frosty and Snowy!

They are so cuuuute, and the kids are gonna love 'em!

Of course, you could take the less family friendly approach and call them Schnarkgruntle and Witherfrost. Before you call for them in the park, remember a black metal type piercing scream, followed by snarling their names out loud, foam dripping from your mouth! :D ;)

AG's suggestion is probably a practical one. It would be good to give them names that your kids can pronounce.

 Yoggy is easy to pronounce.

True enough. But amending Yog-Sothoth to ''Yoggy'', kind of removes some of the power that the name holds, dosen't it?

A'j (the A' is pronounced like you're saying the first letter in the governator's name) and Rahib  (Ivory and Terror)
They were immediately and absolutely recognizable as adventurers... They were hardy and dangerous, lawless, stripped of allegiance or morality, living off their wits, stealing and killing, hiring themselves out to whoever and whatever came. They were inspired by dubious virtues.  China Mieville - Perdido Street Station
