Was thinking something along the lines of Latin, or Greek, or some similar language, but the problem is, I can't speak any of those languages. Silly old me...

But any suggestion is good! :thumbsup:

niveus, candidus, albus

You could always name him something like Icejaw or something too (pretty sure there's no NPC of that name...).

(courtesy of a Greek translation website)

Greek Names:

Arkouda, Basto - Both mean bear, and sound kind of spiffy.

Omichli - Meaning fog. I always imagine Polar Bears appearing through the white-winds of a northern place like a floating cloud of fog.

Aspros - It means white, and is the only one I found that wasn't too long/didn't sound like gibberish.

Pagano, Pagoma - Ice/Freeze

Dexameni - Tank, because it's what bears to best. xD

And that's all I've got.

Ooh! Lots of nice names! When I get home to my real computer I'll name him...

Name him what? You ask.

Dexameni! He's a tank, so it's fitting. Plus, I really fell for it. Sounds similar to dexterity!

Saturo, I hope I'm not to late but if you name your pet Dexameni you'll be calling it a cistern (dry well, water storage tank). Somehow I don't think thats the type of tank you were considering.
