Poll: A Name Search

Original post by EM Borbarad

Dear Drachenfelser,
first I want to thank you for your participation in the naming process of our future Drachenfels mascot.
Some of you gave not only a name but also a little Background information about the proposed name.
Of course, I will provide that information also!
I will run the voting for 14 days and I am excited to know which name you going to choose!

Here are the suggestions:

1) Karli – Hüter der Zeit

Karli indicates that our dragon is a lovable animal.
Keeper of Time (
Hüter der Zeit) says that he, if necessary under the risk of his life, guards the contemporary witness (rewards and trophies) of Drachenfels for all time.

2) Jörmungandr the Dragon

In Norse mythology, Jörmungandr (Old Norse: Jǫrmungandr, pronounced [ˈjɔrmuŋɡandr]), often written Jormungand, or Jörmungand and also known as the Midgard Serpent (Old Norse: Midgarðsormr), or World Serpent, is a sea serpent, the middle child of the giantess Angrboða and the god Loki. According to the Prose Edda, Odin took Loki’s three children by Angrboða, the wolf Fenrir, Hel and Jörmungandr, and tossed Jörmungandr into the great ocean that encircles Midgard. The serpent grew so large that he was able to surround the earth and grasp his own tail. As a result, he received the name of the Midgard Serpent or World Serpent. When he lets go, the world will end. Jörmungandr’s arch-enemy is the god Thor.

3) Fafnir

This name comes of course from the Nibelungen saga and that likes to claim that Siegfried slew him (the Dragon) on the real Drachenfels in the Siebengebirge (Midwest of Germany)…

4) Trachyt

The name “trachyte” is derived from the etymology of quartz trachyte, which was won on the mountain (Drachenfels). A popular derivation comes from a legend about a dragon to have lived on the mountain. A reference to the Nibelungen saga was made, which is not proven.

5) Fels Klabaute

A Klabautermann is a water kobold. The name comes from the Low German verb klabastern meaning “rumble” or “make a noise”. An etymology deriving the name from the verb kalfatern (“to caulk”) has also been suggested.The Klabautermann is a ship spirit or goblin who warns the captain in danger and is mostly invisible.

6) Beleg Amlug
That’s Sindarin and means great Dragon.
7) Snuffel
8 ) Felsendrache
9) Saphira
10) Son of Stygain
11) Rekklar

Have fun and I hope you will consider participating!

Kind regards
