What should I name my newly-tamed Skoll? - A Poll

#1 Unread post by Mania » Sun Mar 07, 2010 4:58 am

I have a couple of names I think might fit my newly-tamed Skoll, and I can't decide between them. Help me out?

(This is a quick poll because I hate leaving pets unnamed.)

((And have I ever mentioned how much I like Loki?))

I liked Coyote. But since Fenris is a mythological wolf, I think Tyr would be nice too...

Personally, id keep the name Skoll, simply because its a rare spawn, and a one of a kind pet.

That is something I just don't understand.

OK, if you go out and tame an ordinary beast that is just one of tousands, you just have to give him a name so he is unique.
But if you settle for a rare pet, then this beast already is legendary. Everyone knows about him, he has a story and, more important, he has a name!

I tamed Echeyakee once and named him... well, Echeyakee. If I'd tame Snort, the heckler, he'd be Snort.
So if I had any interest in spirit beasts and would tame Skoll, there'd be only one name for him: Skoll!

But to each his own, I guess. But I don't really like those names in the list. Although coyote reminds me of my Shadowrun shaman character, I don't think it fits Skoll. Loken is a name that is used in the game, isn't it? As an orc, you'd probably'd choose something like flashfang or bluecoat or something like that.

But that's only the roleplayer in me shouting out loud right now, just don't listen... :lol:

I say Tyr, simply for the irony of it... a mythological wolf like fenrir named after the guy whom lost his hand....Awesomeness..

On another note, I -do- agree with Kara on the fact that you -are- playing an orc, not quite sure if you are on an RP server or not... However, for the sake of falling into line with what an orc normally is..one would give the wolf names like Shardhowl, Bluefang, Skymane and what not.

Much thanks to Saturo for the awesome signature.

Just as a follow-up, I still haven't named him ... mostly because I stuck him in the stable and then forgot I'd even tamed him. ;) Whoops.

What can I say? I love my slime.

:shock:
You... forgot you tamed Skoll? Goodness, that slime must get a lot of time out of the stables if you forget that you have a Spirit Beast in there!

Yeah ... I feel kind of guilt about that. Pity you can't designate one of your stabled pets as a non-combat pet. At least then I'd have him out which me, looking handsome.
