Post subject:  Good 'Dwarf' name for my bears?

First time poster, long time reader!

I started my Alliance adventure on a dwarf hunter, named Rhyenne and I decided I would get her 'matching' bear pets.

She has the Dun Morogh Cub and the 'grown' version that match! I'm looking to name them both, and wanted good 'lore-compatible' Dwarven type names. The problem is, I don't know that much about Dwarves. :shock:

So, here are a screenshot of my hunter and her bears. Any help is much appreciated! :D

Looking up dwarves in WoW-wiki shows that they have some Gaelic and a little Nordic reference.
Now it depends in what direction you wanna go.

Here are 10 Gaelic names:
  • Tonghas
  • Sorlann
  • Dorcha
  • Lead
  • Stiúbhart
  • Tordras
  • Isdean
  • Fiorchar
  • Diarlum
  • Siardre

Here are 10 Nordic names:
  • Hjarir
  • Kradvid
  • Hjor
  • Gauti
  • Gridmar
  • Sirnavar
  • Hesmid
  • Storing
  • Frorkmar
  • Fadrek

(All names were taken from eBoN, the everchanging book of names.)

Or is it something special you are looking for?

Hmm, I'm not really sure honestly. I don't know much about how Dwarves tend to name their pets. Do they tend to give them 'people' names or more descriptive names like Mangeclaw or something?

Although I don't know how plausible it is lore-wise, I have a suggestion: Harald. I find it really fitting for a black bear. :D

Hehe.

Hehehe.

When I think dwarves, I think beer. So here are a few beer related names...

Whiskey
Vodka
Bud
Gin
Tonic
Wine
Beer
Corona
Hangover


And general names

Ripfang
Soot
Ash
Darky
As simple as it is, Bear. After all, I had a glow eyed cat named Cat. It's the only name that really fitted it. I like Cat being Cat....

Going with the beer names, Stout could be another option. Fits a bear as well.

Archeologist Adamant Ironheart is a dwarf in the Explorer's League. I think either of his names would make a good bear name.

but if you do go with a beer name for your hunter pet (Stout's my favorite), I'd name the cub Half-Pint :)

Seems like a descriptive name is more "dwarfy" There's Mangeclaw (a white bear), Bjorn (just means bear), Old Sooty (black bear) and Snorts (a boar) that are dwarf related that I can think of off the top of my head. Sadly, my creativity seems to be broken today, I can't come up with any names.

Hmm, I was actually working out a little story in my head for my bears. I figured I might write it up and post it on the forums. :shock:

Basically, it's a mamma bear and cub (for now, the cub could grow up later as Rhy gains levels) that Rhy helped. So, looking for good female names for the big bear and I haven't decided for the cub yet. :D

Lol Teigan I was just about to type the same thing..a dwarf is very descriptive in their names as Teigan mentioned..nothing too fancy and something that fits just well and you have yourself a name..for two black bears how about.. Onyx(baby) and Obsideana(feminine) - both gorgeous black gemstones. I associate them with ore and mining which everybody knows dwarfs do a LOT. :)

Grimmaul and Minimaim.

Hmm....I actually like the idea of naming them after gemstones.

I was thinking maybe....Onyx and Quartz? Some quartz is a lovely, dark color.

Here's an example of black/smoky quartz.

Onyx for the Mamma bear, and Quartz for the little one. :?:
