That one is a beautiful colour. Hmmm, since dwarves love metals, maybe something based on silver?

Riffing off Wain, what about Alloy or Solder? (Not sure how solder is pronounced in the Queen's English)

In England and Australia we pronounce the 'L'. I believe that Americans pronounce it "sodder"? To me that sounds funnily like "sod off". :D

If I'm honest with myself, I rhyme solder and water, both somewhere in between d and t.

But sorry, Holgarr, we've gotten off topic. Do 'forge-y' names seem appropriate to you, or were you thinking in a different direction?

No, no, it's cool. Having something based on metal or stone fits quite well. Maybe something in another language would work - I tamed Cracklefang way back in Mists, and named him Gromvolk, Russian for "thunder wolf", just as an example.

Hmm, Argent means silver. When I'm at my computer tomorrow, I'll see what else I can come up with.

Neve and Firn are two different types of compacted snow, whose density is somewhere between fresh snow and glacial ice.
